About Atascadero CrossFit


Atascadero CrossFit is a 3600 sq ft. premier strength & conditioning facility located in San Luis Obispo County, California. At ACF you will find highly qualified coacheswho lead by example and are passionate about health, nutrition and fitness. Our staff are constantly bettering themselves as coaches by continuing their education through frequent certifications and CrossFit competitions.

At Atascadero CrossFit, you will not find rows of treadmills and machines; instead, you will find pull up bars, dumbbells, kettlebells, barbells and open floor space used for squatting, running, jumping, climbing, lifting and throwing. We mimic movements performed in day to day life and sport. We won’t do bicep curls and leg extensions; we will however deadlift and squat because it is a functional, real life movement (lifting your kids, etc.) We are training to make you fit, not just to look fit.

Atascadero CrossFit follows the proven CrossFit methodology; Constantly varied, functional movements, executed at high intensity. What does this mean? It means you will rarely do the same workout twice. It also means you will never spend hours in the gym, wondering what you should do. You will never get bored with the programming. Our classes will improve your capacity in 10 recognized fitness domains: Cardio- respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance and accuracy.

Perhaps one of the biggest perks of our program is our structured classes are one hour long which can fit into even the busiest of schedules. This means you will be properly warmed up, mobilized, workout, and cool down, all within one hour!

Atascadero CrossFit is unique in that we offer many specialties ranging from CrossFit Kids classes, nutrition clinics, Olympic lifting & Power lifting seminars, specialty skills and Moga (mobility/yoga.)

CrossFit Affiliated facilities are individually owned and operated. It is important to understand that Crossfit gyms are not a franchise. All CrossFit affiliates are free to set their prices and design their own programs. Atascadero CrossFit started by providing free outdoor workouts every Saturday at different locations throughout the city of Atascadero.

You are not just a number to us or just put into a class; instead, you are part of a team. Our passion for quality training and programming is something you will have to experience to fully understand.

We are extremely proud of our facility.

A lot of time was spent choosing the best equipment, and finding the perfect location to provide the safest and most durable environment. We take pride in our equipment and building. You will always find our gear and facility well maintained and sanitary. It is very important to us to deliver to you the safest and highest quality equipment possible.

Our facility is located at 3232 El Camino Real; between San Anselmo and Del Rio exits. We have an amazing 3600 sq ft. stand-alone masonry building constructed in 2005. Our flooring is high quality seamless rubber matting. We have gas heaters for the chilly mornings and large fans for those hot summer days. Our box features 60 feet of 9’ wide turf for sled pushes, bear crawls, crab walks and many other drills. You’ll find rings and ropes hanging from the rafters, a huge pullup rig coming off the wall, pull blocks, jerk blocks and wide open floor space to move! We are kid friendly; as well as instructing CrossFit kid classes, we have a small area for parents and kids to sit and watch a class as well. We don’t stay in the four walls of our building however; we are the “outdoor gym,” creating many workouts outside in our beautiful Central Coast weather!
