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.
My home gym when I'm in the bay area. This an excellent place to get fight and sports training. Some weeks I'm here everyday, others I get too sore. There are no egos and everyone seems willing to help and be beneficial to your training needs.
I've trained here for 14 years and continue my training here. This is an excellent academy with very well thought out instruction. The instructors know how to lead an educational class while keeping the pace both exciting and entertaining. I've never had a class that didn't make me leave in a puddle of sweat and thrilled at my next class.
Cherry on top?: nothing gets your stress and aggression out better than punching and kicking pads.
Try a few classes and you'll be hooked!
