"Hello Mr. Amundson. My original background is in martial arts, teaching Taekwondo and Kickboxing. Since I've discovered CrossFit I've never been in better shape in my life. I've never felt better, never been faster, never lifted more, or more importantly to me, never been mentally stronger than I am now. When I began training, simply attempting the WODs was satisfying enough at first. Then setting goals helped keep me motivated (double body weight deadlift, improved Fran, linking muscle-ups). But now I'm consistently motivated to just be a better me thanks to your mental reworkings! I recently watched your lecture on leadership and mental workouts at the CrossFit One facility at Reebok HQ and it was the most eye opening, light bulb moment I've had in CrossFit to date. Equal to any PR! I've literally set free my anxiety over certain WODs or techniques. Your energy and enthusiasm is palpable through the screen and your examples and metaphors are inspiring! I hope you're breathing fire for years more and someday I can thank you in person."

 WOD Tours


“I look forward to sharing my love of both CrossFit and Santa Cruz with you! We’ll do breakfast at the original CrossFit hangout, talk about your fitness goals, and run the infamous Aptos beach stairs! It’s gonna’ be a great day.”
Greg Amundson on the West Side WOD Tour


WOD Tours was established by our good friends in Australia, Andrew Berridge and Brad Woodhouse, in February 2011. Sitting over coffee, Brad and Andrew talked about their dream of traveling to CrossFit boxes across the world and training with the best CrossFit Athletes and Coaches. In the true spirit of CrossFit, Andrew and Brad created a business that would allow people an opportunity to “WOD Tour” and meet these Athletes, Coaches and CrossFit gyms. Andrew and Brad have done all the hard work for you!  Taking part in a WOD Tour is easy, it’s just a matter of getting together with your CrossFit friends, picking your favorite tour and registering for a fantastic experience.

Run the Stairs at Seacliff Beach on the West Side WOD Tour!

CrossFit Amundson is pleased to be part of the “West Side WOD Tour” that includes stops along the California coast in Santa Cruz, San Francisco, San Luis Obispo and San Diego. Participants on the West Side WOD Tour will visit CrossFit Central Santa Cruz with Annie Sakamoto, San Francisco CrossFit with Coach Kelly Starrett, CrossFit Inferno with Bill Grundler and Mikes Gym with Coach Mike Burgner. You’ll also have an opportunity to  visit the CrossFit Amundson gym in Santa Cruz, run the famous stairs at Seacliff State Beach, and go to breakfast with Greg Amundson at the old-school CrossFit eating establishment The Silver Spur, only 800 meters away from the very first CrossFit gym. It’s going to be an awesome day!
