Frequently Asked Questions


How do I get started?

Go to our Getting Started Page and follow the directions for getting in touch with us for an Introduction.

Please DO NOT just show up to “see what CrossFit is about.” Our coaches will be focused on their class and will not be able to give you the attention you deserve. Follow the steps for Getting Started.

Can I just drop-in to a class?

No. We require everyone to get in touch with us prior to coming by the gym. We want you to get the most out of your experience with CrossFit Palo Alto. We offer more than just a workout because we are more than just a gym. Follow the steps for Getting Started. If you have prior experience with a CrossFit Affiliate please contact us at

Is CrossFit For Me?

CrossFit is for anyone. Period.

The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability, making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience or level.

Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive.

The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree, not by kind. Our professional athletes, Special Forces, surfers, ultra marathon runners, computer programmers, mechanics, and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.

What should I eat?

CrossFit Palo Alto believes that nutrition is essential for true health and fitness. Establishing a clean eating program is fundamental to achieving real results in the CrossFit program. This is true whether your goal is based in performance (Bodyweight overhead press, pull-ups) or overall health (fat loss, improved cholesterol readings, injury rehab).

This task may seem daunting, and make no mistake, it will take discipline and hard work, but CrossFit Palo Alto is dedicated to helping you every step of the way. We offer nutritional counseling, periodic seminars, potluck dinners and social events where you will gain education, insight, resources and recipes.

There is a support network available to you each and every time you visit the gym or the website that is invaluable to your progress and meeting your personal goals.
