"Words cannon even begin to express the amount of motivation and inspiration you have instilled in us after listening to you speak yesterday. We both went in the hopes that we would walk away with just one little tidbit of information to take back to the box with us, but we were given so much more! We walked away with an arsenal of knowledge to utilize not only in the box, but in our daily lives. Your desire to share the knowledge and wisdom you have gained over the years is contagious, and we cannot wait to get in our box on Monday to start making positive change, and to relay the new tools and skill set we learned from you. Thank you, once again, for your hard work and dedication to this sport."

— Matthew and Sarah Lucas

Our Workouts

CrossFit Amundson prides itself on honoring the tradition, culture and history of CrossFit. In Santa Cruz County, nobody has been training in CrossFit for as long as Greg Amundson. Greg was a former owner of the very first CrossFit gym and was personally trained and mentored by the Founders of CrossFit.

Original CrossFit HQ Trainers – 2004

Our workouts are “original CrossFit Headquarters” workouts. Nearly every workout we program at our gym was completed by Greg Amundson and original “Team Six” Athletes at the World’s first CrossFit gym. Greg was meticulous about keeping a fitness journal from his workouts beginning with his very first WOD in December of 2001. (1 round of 1K row, 21 kettlebell swings, 12 pull-ups!) Many workouts at our gym are pulled directly from Greg’s journals and from original CrossFit Headquarters workouts.

We place a high emphasis on the three tenants of CrossFit which are: Mechanics, Consistency and THEN intensity. Although we love to train hard, we love even more the pursuit of virtuosity (doing the common, uncommonly well) in functional movement. We also take a “longevity” approach to our training and workouts to ensure you a lifetime of improvement, challenge and reward.

For an insiders perspective on the very first days of CrossFit in Santa Cruz County, we recommend reading the CrossFit Journal Article by Greg Amundson called, “CrossFit HQ History.” If you’re “old school” like we are, you’ll love our gym, our workouts and our unique culture. We look forward to seeing you in the gym!
