Getting Started
  • FIRST

    The hardest step is the first one; walking through the door. Fill out the contact us form to inquire about your first free class, or just arrive a few minutes early to fill out a waiver and join a class. Whether it’s weight-loss or increased strength, our certified coaches will help you reach your goals.

  • NEXT

    If you are an experienced Crossfitter, join us for group class. The recipe for success with fitness is no secret; mechanics + intensity = results. We’ll coach you through proper form to ensure safety and maximize efficiency. If you are new to CrossFit, it’s recommended that you participate in Group Elements to learn the foundations of CrossFit. Our universally scalable program can be utilized to achieve optimal results. CrossFit truly is for everyone!

  • THEN

    Once you’ve stepped through our doors, you’ll see a box forged in community. We support each other’s goals whether it is weight loss or a faster 10k. We have membership plans and prices that suit the frequent business traveler as well as the stay-at-home mom. Contact us today to sign up and start your journey today.

Frequently Asked Questions

Common concerns.
01

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.

02

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?

03

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.

04

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.
