One of my fondest CrossFit competition memories is participating in the Row-a-thon held at Walnut Creek CrossFit many years ago organized by Andrew and Eric Williams!  Even though I'm not a huge fan of rowing, sharing the work with 3 other…

I have been coming to CrossFit Sweat Shop since March and I have had nothing but positive interactions and experiences. The coaches are incredibly friendly (and they will push you to challenge yourself, which I love) and the community is unmatched.This gym has a great balance of strength and endurance training which has been such a huge help in transforming my physique, stamina, and overall strength gains💪🏼I cannot recommend this place enough!

This place is awesome! I've been attending for a bit over a year now and I keep upping my membership frequency because of how much I enjoy it. The coaches are all super friendly and really know what they're talking about. My technique and fitness have improved so much.It's really approachable for a beginner too. The base workouts are hard but achievable for someone of reasonable fitness, and then if you're more advanced there are options for that. And if you don't have a movement figured out yet, or an injury or other limitation, the coaches will give you modifications or substitutions.And the community is fantastic too - it's a super positive and encouraging environment. I push myself way harder working out with others, and that's a good thing!

I strongly recommend it to those who are training in Korea. The box atmosphere is much more family-like and comfortable than Korean boxes. Visitors come from a wide range of ages, races, and skill levels, so even beginners can enjoy it.

Great space and great coaching. The coaches work with you and create proper workouts based on your skill level and will work with you if you have an injury.

I highly recommend this CrossFit gym. The coaching staff is diverse and experienced from competitive athlete, martial arts instructor, professional rugby player and mobility coach as a few examples. The gym is well stocked with equipment and clean. Class size get large on the wknd but is not an issue during the week. The coaches and owners get to you know, understand your injuries and limitations and help you work towards your goals. This is a great gym to join if you want to progress in cross fit or just fitness in general. The programming was recently switched to PRVN which is a big improvement. Lots of strength work combined with traditional CrossFit workouts.

I have been to many CrossFit gyms around the world and the thing I find most attractive about Sweatshop is the people. The members at Sweatshop are all very easy going, making it a very comfortable place to get my workout in after a long day. Each coach has their own style of coaching but what they all have in common is their ability to connect with everyone and making new members feel welcome.

Honestly one of the best decisions I could have made. Post-pandemic, I was looking for a place to workout in a positive community. Two years later, these people are some of my closest friends. They push you to be better but are so encouraging and knowledgeable every step of the way. The coaches meet everyone where they are - from novice to CrossFit games athletes, everyone is celebrated here.I’ve never been this strong and have never had so much fun doing it. If you’re looking for a place with great athletes, great workouts, and even better people, you can’t miss this place.

Best Crossfit gym in the bay area!!!From the second I stepped foot in sweatshop I knew this was the gym for me. Super fun and genuinely friendly coaches. Plenty of scaling options that provide a positive space for all skill levels, while maintaining a healthy challenge for fitness veterans. Most importantly, a real sense of community that cares about you and your fitness goals.So glad I discovered this amazing gym!!!

I started doing CrossFit for the first time here just about 2 years ago and have been loving it ever since! The coaches are really conscientious about form to make sure everyone avoids injury. All of the coaches have helped me improve a variety of my skills by giving me different drills and/or tips. The community has been so welcoming and supportive as well. I highly recommend anyone come check it out!

I started at CrossFit Sweat Shop 2 years ago with zero experience in CrossFit type workouts and was immediately welcomed by the coaches and ramped up quickly! The whole staff is helpful and always willing to modify your workout if there are movements you don't quite have down yet which is great if you are learning and still want to get a solid sweat in. I would highly recommend this gym if you are a CrossFit newbie or even if you have been doing it for years!

When I went in for the free trail class with coach James , I never thought I would immediately sign up. Sweatshop coaches are caring, encouraging, knowledgeable, approachable , the programming is excellent, I saw improvements in just a couple of months and the members are amazing . What I like the most is that it's a judgment free zone. Am thankful for this community that keeps inspiring me.

Echoing my thoughts I shared on Yelp:I joined Crossfit Sweat Shop a little over a year ago and it has been one of the best decisions ever made! My husband joined the gym about 1/2 a year prior to me and kept encouraging me to start. I was hesitant at first because lifting weights felt intimidating and I had never done it before. I did a few sessions with Bri (who is amazing!) to learn the basics and from there, there was no turning back. I started off never having used a barbell and now feel very comfortable doing all the exercises. Strength and resistance training and cardio are all vital for our health and this gym offers it all! I never thought I'd be my fittest in my 30s and I'm only going to get stronger!All of the coaches are amazing and well trained/experienced and everyone is so nice, encouraging, and welcoming. They will help you modify exercises if needed (based on your strengths/weaknesses). I truly feel at home here! I'm always excited to go for a workout and always leave with a sense of accomplishment. If you are looking for a great gym, look no further!
