Why choose CrossFit Monrovia?
CrossFit Monrovia opened in December, 2008. By that time, we had been involved with CrossFit since 2006. I guess you could say we’re pretty “old school.”
We focus on creating a positive training environment and building a lifelong love of fitness. Our goal is to not only improve your fitness level but also help you make healthy nutrition and lifestyle choices.
We’ve been told we are the “family friendly CrossFit” and the “CrossFit for REAL people” and we proudly accept these titles. The people in our community come from a wide range of age, occupation, and athletic background. They enjoy the camaraderie from completing challenging workouts and sharing athletic pursuits outside the gym. For many, CrossFit has been a life changing experience. Others are here simply to lose weight, to compete, to socialize, to get stronger, or to just look better naked.
We have a friendly and dedicated staff of trainers who all started just like you. They are clients who we asked along the way to help train others. They know and remember what its like to step into the first class here and will be there to answer all your questions and help you along the way.

World-Class Fitness in 100 Words
“Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: deadlift, clean, squat, presses, clean and jerk, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climbs, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports.”
