Group Crossfit Classes

Group classes are offered Monday through Friday in the morning, noon, and evening and Saturday mornings.  Completion of either a Basics Workshop or Private Coaching Introduction to Crossfit Series is a pre-requisite for joining any our group classes.  Members pay a monthly membership fee and may attend group class sessions that fit within their schedule.  See our Group Class Schedule for specific class times and to sign-up for classes.  Our core program is our Level 1 Crossfit classes and we recommend these classes for everyone to develop and increase base fitness capacities and well-rounded abilities.   We also recognize that many athletes have significant holes in strength and general fitness.  To this end, we also offer a wide variety of specialized classes that are intended to be a compliment to our Level 1 classes.

Class Descriptions

Level 1 - These are traditional Crossfit classes that include a skill-based warm-up, skill or strength training, the Workout of the Day (or “WOD”), and mobility work.    The workouts can always be scaled so that new athletes can workout alongside veteran athletes.  On some days, the WOD will be a 10-20 minute metabolic conditioning workout that combines several movements or exercises that are grouped into sets and either completed for time or in as many rounds a possible (“AMRAP”).    On other days, the class will focus on a strength piece (like a 1 rep max deadlift) followed by a shorter metabolic conditioning “finisher” workout.    We encourage all Level 1 athletes to record their workout times/scores and track their progress on our Beyond the Whiteboard page.

Level 2 - These classes are designed to develop our veteran Crossfit athletes and are limited to 8 athletes/class.  The prerequisites for this class include: completion of at least 1-year of Crossfit classes, proficiency in the the basic Crossfit skills, and the ability to complete some workouts at the prescribed weight/intensity.   The goal of these classes is to develop and master the more complex Crossfit skills (like hand-stand push ups/muscle-ups, Olympic lifts, etc.) and the programming is more complex with higher skill demand and increased work load.   If you are interested in and ready to join our Level 2 classes, please talk to one of our coaches or email us.

Weightlifting- This strength-focused class is designed to compliment the Level 1 classes.   Athletes will learn and practice good positioning and mechanics in a self-paced environment designed to develop a stronger strength base and engine.  *Please arrive 10 minutes prior to class for additional warm-up and mobilization.

Gymnastics Skills – This class focuses on developing the gymnastics skills that are common in Crossfit programming like hand stand push ups, ring dips, pull-ups, etc.   A typical class will include a gymnastics skill based warm up, skill training, and a metabolic conditioning workout that incorporates gymnastics skills.

Running - This class focuses on learning and practicing good running mechanics and is designed develop and maximize our athletes endurance and anaerobic thresholds.

Movement & Mobility - This class is dedicated to learning movement preparation and mobility strategies based on Kelly’s MobilityWOD program.

Powerlifting - Westside Barbell influenced programming to get you stronger in your bench, deadlift, and squat. Great for beginners, CrossFitters, or people interested in competing in powerlifting.

Open Gym / Strength & Skills - This is a self-directed hour for you to get in an extra workout, work on getting stronger, specific skills, or on your mobility.  An SFCF coach is on-hand to coach informally, offer workout advice, or assist with skills.

Hero/Girls WOD Hour – The “Girls” WODs in Crossfit are considered the benchmark Crossfit workouts and are named after the women who first did them.   “Hero” WODs are Crossfit workouts named after soldiers who have been killed in action.   This class focuses on doing one of the Girls or Hero WODs or a combination of several of them.   There are no pre-requisites to joining this class and it is a fun way to kick off your weekend on Friday evenings.

** We also have a thriving Olympic Lifting Club and Crossfit Endurance program at San Francisco Crossfit.   These programs are not included in a regular membership but are available for members as an additional compliment to their Crossfit or sport-specific training.
