Frequently Asked Questions

Common concerns.

What is House Of CrossFit?

HOCF is the oldest affiliate in Carlsbad. We break down the globo-gym mentality and emphasize the purest form of fitness through functional movements performed at high intensity. Most importantly, there are no machines in our gym, rather, athletes of all shapes and sizes utilizing equipment from free weights and barbells to plyo boxes and medicine balls. All coaches are CrossFit Level 1, Level 2 (or higher) Certified Trainers and seek to provide the safest environment for fitness while having fun.


Do I have to “prepare” to start CrossFit?

The best way to get better at CrossFit, is to do CrossFit. Weight-loss, body change, increased strength or speed all takes place within our highly coached and motivated environment. While any exercise is better than none, our CrossFit program will get you into shape very quickly. When athletes commit to consistency, they typically see results within 3 weeks and dramatically higher levels of progress (to include fat loss and improved cardio vascular function) at 3 months. Make no mistake: CrossFit, if you allow it, will push you and it might not be easy. But you wouldn’t want it that way would you?


What is the box like?

Hour long classes are structured in a manner that promotes group fitness while providing for individual coaching. You are guaranteed to never have a three-day period repeat itself. By no means are we random, rather, constantly varied to help you prepare for anything life throws your way. Gone are the days of the same old boring gym routine. With variance comes fun – not to mention optimizing your body’s ability to adapt to and respond to a variety of challenges. We utilize music and coaching cues to motivate athletes and rely on mechanics to make the good, better and the better, best. At HOCF, we demand the highest level of coaching from our trainers and 100% effort from our athletes.


What are the members like?

All of our members have a common goal; to be a part of a community and not “just a gym.” We embrace a community approach towards fitness via relationships amongst members, trainers and their respective families. We have members of all backgrounds and employment statuses from 1st responders, lawyers, teachers, and soccer moms. They often come early and typically stay late. There is something about cheering on the last athlete and offering a friendly high five after a PR that is an environment you will not experience anywhere else.

Excited yet? What are you waiting for?

WOD 22 – 2/22/15

Operation Enduring Warrior will receive 100% of the proceeds. Their organization is a veteran operated non-profit whose mission is to Honor, Empower, and Motivate wounded service members.

This Memorial Day we'll be supporting @catchalift_fund ...will you? A quote from a CAL recipient: “I cant thank Catch A Lift just for getting me back in the gym. I have to thank them for the opportunity to get back the important things I lost in my accident. From the outside it may look like a free gym membership, but to a soldier like me who has realized the true importance of strength and lost it, it is so much more.” #neversurrender #memorialday #murph

Brace yourselves...Murph is coming! Make sure you pre-order your tee at the box or via email (info@houseofcrossfit.com) to snag one. These are special edition and won't be printed again! Check previous posts for layout and design. #neversurrender #murph #houseofcrossfit

It's that time of year! This Memorial Day Murph will be better than the last. Pre-orders for our $35 military tribute tees start today and last through May 3rd. Our beneficiary this year is @catchalift_fund whose mission is to provide post-9/11 wounded veterans gym equipment or gym memberships so they can recover, rehabilitate and reintegrate through physical fitness. CrossFit memberships are included in that! We hope you will support this awesome organization and show up this Memorial Day 5/25 for our Murph workout! #murph #memorialday #neversurrender #lifeasrx #houseofcrossfit

houseofcrossfit @asrxcustomdivision @joe_kinney always hooks us up with killer gear @stephaniefoehl ! Different tank, not as tight fitting as CaliBear. @fitcali it's a preorder for Memorial Day but we'll gladly ship to you! Email info@houseofcrossfit.com with your size/style and we'll invoice you

That's a PR face right there! @rbennett0426 hit 115# on her snatch today then sealed the deal with 160# on her C&J afterwards. Lots of hard work in the gym lifting and on nutrition with counting macros. The May 2nd Fortius Open better watch out for this one. #hardwork #happydance #prface #houseofcrossfit
