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.

A little rain can't stop us! 🙌🏻☔️ Even though @provinggroundscomps got rained out for Stars and Bars, we brought the party (and 13 teams) back to @houseofcrossfit to finish the final workouts! Such a blast. Just because we got rained doesn't mean we had to stop competing. Pizza and beer earned. 🍕🍻 #daremightythings #neversurrender #houseofcrossfit #cantstopwontstop

Check out the story posted earlier this week about our good friend @barbellkitchen who was unfortunately injured on her back squat due to her ponytail getting caught.

We all have to start somewhere and we are happy these two started with us. We need not to compare our beginning to someone else's middle, or our middle to someone else's end. We need to remember to embrace where we are, celebrate it, and keep moving forward! #motivation #newmembers #crossfit #community #elements #houseofcrossfit

susancantoni PREACH! That is one of the reasons I am too nervous to start crossfit. I love the sport, but my worries get the best of me.

Thanks to LVL1 APPAREL for the #pineapplebuncampaign support! #Repost @lvl1apparel with @repostapp. ・・・ "Your back squat don't want none unless you got buns hun!" A very important PSA from @courtneyfordendurance ・・・ Shout out to our girl Sara, @barbellkitchen ---from here on out we will always Always ALWAYS wear our hair in a 🍍pineapple🍍 while Back Squatting heavy weight. Monday, Sara, had a freak accident at the box with 250# on the bar. Her ponytail got caught while back squatting and it dropped on her legs and she collapsed back over it, thus breaking a leg, dislocating 1 ankle, and breaking both ankles. She has a long road of recovery ahead and we want all of our girls to learn that we will wear our hair in BUNSSSSSS from here on out! #pineapplebuncampaign
