Humble, patient, friendly and welcoming environment. I am a new member to the box but not new to Crossfit. I fell in love with Crossfit from Hercules Crossfit because of the workouts, community and positive attitudes amongst each athlete and coaches. Cypher is a quick drive from my house. I love the smaller classes and the attention to detail on my form and movements from the coaches. I highly recommend Cypher. My experience thus far has been positive throughout. Thank you! More...

No matter your current fitness level, Cypher "meets you where you're at" to take you where you want to be! A supportive group setting that allows you to work within your own limits. The coaches are caring and knowledgeable. A strong, healthy lifestyle can be found right here at CF Cypher!! More...

I went to cypher for about a year. It was the best gym I’ve ever been to. I moved to Texas and I miss the gym a lot. But the coaches are what I really miss they are the best.

If someone told me that my 65 year old body would be doing what it's doing now, I would have said ''getouttahere!" This is one of the best gym experiences I've had in ten years after giving up martial arts. The staff are top notch athletes, and the community is one that cares deeply about your overall fitness and well-being. If you're thinking about getting back into serious workouts, and you're in the area, then you must check them out. It's changing my life! More...

I have been to quite a few boxes, Crossfit Cypher was the first that really *kept* my interest and desire to return. The coaches, the atmosphere and the environment are only a few of the highlights that keep me here. I live in Oakland, work in Hercules and happily go out of my way to Richmond to make a class or open gym at Cypher. Not only do the coaches share my joy when I succeed, but the other gym members do, too. This is not like many other places I've stepped into where I was intimidated, it's actually the opposite. It's a very welcoming community, one that I can easily claim as another form of family. There are no favorites, the coaches make themselves available for everyone no matter your age, size, color, level of fitness - no question is ever "too dumb" to ask.

I'm happy to belong to this Cypher, I will happily cheer everyone on & absorb the positive energy when I find myself in the middle of it, as I already do.

The gym is very well organized, clean and well equipped. Coaches are very knowledgeable, nice and understanding. I love the way that we work very hard on our own place. There are no pressure but a lot of encouragement to do ours own best. More...

Coaches and community here are awesome! Was a bit apprehensive of CrossFit - heard stories of people getting hurt and bad form, but not the case. Staff here knows what they’re doing; they make sure everyone doing the movements correctly/safely so everyone stays safe. Everything is scaleable to personal strength and ability levels, so the workouts are all inclusive.
Fun to get a sweat on with the great people at Cypher! Can’t get enough!

Mauricio, Leslie and all the other instructors are fantastic. The CrossFit Games along with other competitions keep the athletes focused and goal-oriented. CrossFit Cypher is easy to find and has plenty of free parking. More...

Couldn't speak more highly of the owners and coaches at CF Cypher. I have only been a member for a few months, but from the moment I walked into the (very well maintained) gym, I have been impressed. I have been in and around the world of CrossFit for 8 years at this point, and have had the privilege of being coached by some of the finest. This team is no different. My fist visit included a health/goal setting assessment. CF Cypher is fully committed to each individual member attaining whatever goal they have in mind and help encourage and challenge each member to dream bigger along the way. What I have witnessed and come to know first hand is that, whatever your goal is, you can and WILL attain it with this team and community supporting you along the way. More...

I've been a member of Crossfit Cypher for about four and a half months, and I can't say enough good things about it. As a 65 year old woman with a reasonable amount of fitness I wondered if I could meet the challenges of the daily workouts. Instead, what I discovered was that it pushed me to go beyond my own perceived limits and take on workouts that leave me feeling exhilirated and energized. The instructors are all top-notch athletes who care deeply about their students and take care to make sure we are working levels that are good for us right now while asking us to stretch. I was encouraged to enter the global Crossfit Games Open and found myself in competition with others in my age category. I'm thrilled to say I'm holding my own at 19 out of 46 in N.CA and 162 out of 702 globally. You are never too old, unless you believe it! Loving it, and excited to watch the transformation that is taking place. More...

Family! Support! Awesomeness! People who care! Life changing!Iv'e been a member at CF Cypher since September-ish 2015 and couldn't have made a better decision. A few friends had gone to this gym for years, and I finally mustered up the courage to call Mauricio and come in and try this CrossFit thing. I have always been an athlete, and had been used to training, but I never found a training platform that was perfect for all the sports I do (sailing, surfing, bike riding, and hiking). I had also gotten really out of shape over the past few years and needed to do something about it! I had heard many mixed opinions about CF, such as: "don't hurt yourself!" I was a little skeptic at first, but within the first week at Cypher I knew I had people who knew what they were talking about and cared about each members well-being. Mauricio and his coaches are extremely knowledgeable and work really hard with each member. Being new to CF, each coach kept a close eye on me and focused on my form. I feel very safe, yet perfectly pushed in my training. Not only are the trainers amazing, but it is a real family environment. Over the last few months it has become apparent that this is going to be something I will do for a long time. I love that there is all ages, from kids to seniors this is a gym for everyone. Each member is extremely supportive! I truly cannot express how much I love this place. Some highlights: very clean, lots of space, nice outdoor space (I like when we get to go outside), small morning class (I like the morning), constantly updating the gym with new equipment, great WOD's, great people (none of this "bro-type" behavior), very personal, the people, the people, and oh did I mention the PEOPLE!! Kind of a side story here, but I have a job that makes me go out of town a lot and for long periods of time. I received a call from a number I didn't know, I answered it, and sure enough it was a girl from Cypher checking in on me to see where I was. Long story short, I literally teared up after the call! It was so touching to know that these folks care about me that much! I recommend this to anyone who is friendly and wants a supportive group to work out with. More...

If you are looking for a transformational workout experience you have to join Cypher Crossfit in Richmond. I have been working out with them for 6 months and it has been the best workout experience in my life. I have always gone to the gym but never had any formal training. As a result I never made great improvement. At Cypher Crossfit I am seeing the improvements in my fitness every time I go. You make great friends, push yourself really hard and learn so much about fitness...plus it's fun. I have a blast there. It could not be possible without an amazing coach. Mauricio, who owns and runs Cypher Crossfit, is awesome. You get individual person training tips every time you go. He is a great teacher. Plus he walks the talk...he is a Crossfit beast! More...
