• With So Many Choices for CrossFit in San Diego, Why Choose Stronghold?


    Smaller Class Sizes and Superior Coaching

    Head Coach Ray Regno is a CFL3 Trainer (only 2% of all CrossFit trainers in San Diego hold this credential) and a member of the CrossFit HQ Seminar Staff. When he's not coaching at the gym, he teaches the CrossFit Level 1 Trainer course that produces new CrossFit trainers. He is also highly involved in mentoring other coaches in San Diego and abroad. Our assistant coaches are handpicked and groomed to provide premiere coaching with an emphasis on safety and proper mechanics. Compared to other local gyms that host classes as large as 20-30 people, we intentionally keep our classes small to maximize quality of coaching and coach to participant interaction.

    Movement and Mobility

    We are firm believers in the idea that "Movement is Medicine." Humans are DESIGNED to move and the simple act of movement can be therapeutic. For instance, being taught to move WELL can help alleviate common ailments such as back and knee pain. Whether you're a couch potato looking to become more active or an elite athlete, we can empower you move better. Got tight shoulders, hips, ankles, etc. etc.? We can help! Coach Ray is a great resource for opening up tight shoulders and hips so you can improve your positions for CrossFit, Weightlifting, Gymnastics, sport, or everyday life.

    Stronghold Barbell Club

    Looking to improve your snatch, clean, jerk, or all of the above? Coach Ray Regno is a member of the CrossFit Weightlifting Seminar Staff with Coach Mike Burgener and can help you improve your positions, iron out your technique, and get you stronger so that you’ll be ready to perform on the platform.

Is CrossFit For Me?

We are firm believers in the old CrossFit principle that “the needs of your grandma and a Navy SEAL differ only in degree, not kind”.

That being said, EVERY WOD (workout of the day) is designed with scalability in mind. This means that you can be an elite athlete, someone recovering from an injury, a soccer mom, a college student, or a grandma and be doing the same workout with everyone else. It’s all about community and we understand that within a community, different people have different needs. Each workout, therefore, is scalable to meet the needs of each participant.

If you can’t do a particular movement or exercise, we’ll offer a comparable alternative or reduce the intensity. If you have an injury or physical limitation, we will help you work around it.

Want more of a challenge? We’ll be HAPPY to push you to the next level.

Haven’t worked out in ages? No worries, we’re patient, understanding and are here to help.

So if you’re wondering “Is CrossFit for me?” the answer is an emphatic “YES!”

We are no longer accepting new members. But if you would like a referral to a CrossFit Affiliate, we would be happy to help you find a community that will take good care of you.
