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.

The coaches at HOCF want to congratulate each and every one of you who completed the 2015 #crossfitopen The coaches are not here to yell or be a cheerleader, but to help coach good movement and encourage positive self talk (the metal aspect of training).

Out of protein? We are making a Progenex Order next week so be sure to jump on the train if you haven't already! Their new 'Cherry Bomb' Force (Pre-Workout) is the bomb! #spilledhisproteinpowder #sadface #progenex #force #shakerbottle

While we are excited for @itsjennn to get back to the wall balls on her 2nd round, we are more excited that @dempsey66 was in the background giving it his all during their last few seconds! (Watch again if you missed it)! We've never seen anyone double under out of their pants! @crossfitgames @crossfit #crossfitopen #15point3 #gosohard #doubleunders #houseofcrossfit #danceoffpantsoff
