My favorite place to work out

My home boxPosted 4 years ago by

I started at Aliso Crossfit in May of 2012 and in just 10 months my life has completely transformed. I credit that to ACF. The coaches at ACF are amazing. Each coach has strong suits so there is a place for everyone to fit in. Rick and Chelsea are the owners and they have created a great little gym. Rick will push you to your limits, he will personally see to it that you succeed. Chelsea coaches the On-Ramp classes and the Crossfit Kids classes. She brings a softer approach to Crossfit, she is always positive, always happy. Clayton is silly, and crazy strong. Rob is one of the kindest men you will ever meet, his interest in your well being is genuine. Jackson is my favorite trainer. On top of the normal classes he instructs the Foundations class, which breaks down the lifts so that beginners have more time to understand them. Make no mistake this class is not "easier" than a normal WOD. Jackson knows more about fitness and weightlifting than anyone I have ever met.

Aliso Crossfit isn't just where I go to workout. It completely changed my life. I have lost 60 pounds, dropped 5 pants sizes, and increased my overall strength. I feel so much better. This gym is not just for people that are already fit. I am still on my journey to loose more weight and get in better shape, and I am not alone. The gym is full of people in different levels of fitness, beginner to masters, and believe me when I say, EVERYONE is welcome. If you put in the time and the effort you can succeed. The community that you work out with will push you, the coaches will encourage you, and if you come join our box you will have the time of your life.

Aliso CrossFit will make you better

My home boxPosted 5 years ago by

ACF is everything you could hope for in a CrossFit 'box', great owners, awesome coaches, a positive and friendly community, and a clean place with all the gear you need to get your WOD done.
I'm 6 months into starting CrossFit with ACF and I could not recommended it more highly. It has changed my life, physically and mentally to a place that would have taken years on my own.
The workouts will challenge you, but as long as you commit, you will see results. Even when the work is punishing, the ACF community of members and coaches will cheer you on and keep you coming back for more.
We've got amazing athletes and newbies working side-by-side everyday and when the work is done, it doesn't matter which is which because it's a community. You'll feel welcomed, challenged and rewarded.
If you're reading this and in the market to change your life, or just continue your CrossFit adventure, Aliso CrossFit is the place to make it happen.

Check out Aliso CrossFit, doctor's orders!

My home boxPosted 5 years ago by

As a Doctor of Chiropractic I know all about the importance of functional movement training and exercise, and CrossFit is just that; functional, and by that I mean that these exercises, lifts and movements will improve your function in your daily routine be it as an office worker, business person law enforcement officer, firefighter, housewife, athlete, armed service man or woman, student, etc... Improved function decreases pain. CrossFit gets a bad wrap from people who don't know any better because they think that doing CrossFit will cause injuries. Well, so will walking down the stairs if done improperly. Granted, these workout are intense and you will be moving weight and your body around, but when done with proper form and scaled to your ability, they can actually do wonders for injury prevention, core stability and strength, as well as cardiovascular, immune and nervous system health. This is because CrossFit workouts are designed to create a Metabolic Effect that burns calories for up to 36 hours after your workout; something not caused by hours on a treadmill... Use proper form, scale the weight to your ability and check your ego at the door and you shouldn't have to worry about injuries.

Regarding this specific CrossFit Box/Gym, I love it! The owners, Rick and Chelsea are great and a pleasure to work with and have no problem adapting their business and purchasing new equipment to accommodate the growing number of members here. This is a very beginner friendly gym that will also humble to best CrossFitters around depending on how you scale your workouts. The coaches are also very skilled and they help coach you on your form and motivate you the entire WODs (Workout Of the Day), unlike other CrossFit gyms around here... My fiance and I joined up in early May and made friends quickly. We love the sense of community at this gym and during the events planned outside of the box like beach days, pool parties, nutritional seminars and Tough Mudder events. The dynamic of our 6am class is filled with friendly competition and everyone cheers till the final person is done. I would recommend this gym to anyone, regardless of fitness level.

Got lucky with my first gym...

My home boxPosted 5 years ago by

I chose ACF because it's walking distance from my house, I stay because in just 5 short months I've become a part of the family there.

Their workout schedule is great for anyone, classes all the time. Their programming is a perfect mix of strength and metcon, and they throw in a hero/girl here and their. The coaches are awesome, taking time to make sure you're not only working hard but being safe as well (correct form). The owners (Rick and Chelsea) are awesome people to be around.

There is no pretentiousness, no ego, and very little "CrossFit elitism" which I've heard can be an issue with some of the other gyms.

If I had one qualm with the gym, it'd be that there is only the option to be an unlimited member. For me, right now, this is not an issue as I go 4 days a week or so, but for some this can be a deal breaker.

If you live in an around Aliso Viejo, Laguna Beach, Laguna Niguel, or Mission Viejo, you'd be doing yourself a disservice by not coming by the box for a free on ramp class. Seriously, one of the best groups of people out there.

Aliso Crossfit Changed my Life

My home boxPosted 5 years ago by

I love, love, LOVE Aliso Crossfit. I tried out crossfit based on a friend's recommendation and I have no idea why I didn't start earlier. Half the time I feel like I've been hit by a truck and the other half I'm jumping up and down because I've PR'd on an oly lift or climbing a rope (which I did for the first time this week!!!).

Rick and Chelsea (the owners) have a great box and really put their hearts into it. All of the coaches are great and really know how to motivate everyone in the class... even if we're there at 6 am and half asleep.

I have to admit that every day I'm glued to my computer screen at 4:59 pm waiting for the next day's WOD to show up on their website at 5 and it's all because I love going to Aliso Crossfit.

Everything about it is wonderful. The people are the best, the coaches are great, it's clean, it's friendly, and everyone is so supportive!!!

They have On-Ramp classes for beginners, WOD classes every day at great times, Fundamentals classes for people who need extra help with basics, and an Olympic Lifting class on Saturdays for people who want more training in olympic lifts. It's all anyone could ever ask for.

Plus it's right across the street from a Sheriff's station so there's no safer place to be!
