Anybody can do CrossFit, just like anybody can pick up a club and play golf, or kick a ball and play soccer. But, to be really good at it, just like anything worthwhile in life, it takes a whole lot of practice, knowledge, and persistence.

Here at 101, we’re believers that if you’re doing to do something, do it right. Our Personal Training Fundamentals Course is focused on building good habits and setting our students up for a lifetime of success through a pathof learning technique, building consistency, and gradually increasing intensity and complexity.

Check out our Getting Started section to see if you’re up to the task of becoming part of our community and be the fittest you’ve ever been in your entire life.

If you are living in San Jose and are looking to start CrossFit training in a safe, progressive, and comprehensive manner, our Personal Training Fundamentals Course may be exactly what you are looking for if you have the right commitment and are prepared to work harder than you ever have in your entire life.

Fill out our inquiry form located on our Getting Started page and see if you have what it takes.

Our first day’s orientation and fitness assessment lasts approximately one hour, but we have an understanding that that one hour has the potential to change lives. If we can just change a student’s course of life by one fraction of a degree, we know that a year down the road, two years, or three years, this student will be a completely different person mentally and physically. If you don’t invest in a better you today, when will you? Go to our Get Started section and start your journey today.

It’s a new year. Will you join the millions around the country who will start a training regiment, but quit shortly afterwards?  Or will you commit to something that works, as has been proven with students that have been training with us for over 4 years now?

Visit our Getting Started section to learn more about our intake process and start your commitment towards changing your life for the better today.

Sweat, suffering, success.  Training is a lifestyle and a process that we’re passionate about.  If you want to be able to say, and more importantly, feel like you’re in the best shape of your life, check out our Getting Started section and fill out the inquiry form.   Our Coaches will then contact you to bring you in for an orientation and assessment to start your training career. 

If doing the hardest workouts you’ve ever done in your life, learning how to sustainably eat healthily, and being a part of a uniquely supportive community speaks to you, check out our Getting Started page to understand our intake process.  There are over 10,000 CrossFit affiliated gyms around the world, but there’s only one CrossFit 101.  Come see why we’re really good at what we do, and that’s changing lives for the better.

For people who have never tried CrossFit with us, they just won’t understand how effective, and by effective, I mean devastating, a 10 minute workout can be. These On Rampers, half way through our fundamentals program, are coming to understand that there’s a big difference between group exercise classes vs group performance training. No dancing here, unless you count people’s quivering legs as they squat a dance move.

Keep it up On Rampers, earn your performance into the group classes.

3) “The mind is like a house with many rooms… There are rooms one must not go into. To anticipate one’s death is one of those rooms. We must not allow ourselves even to think it.”
-Steven Pressfield Gates of Fire, The Battle of Thermopylae

Thankfully, we don’t have to think about death very often in our training environment, but the idea behind the need to compartmentalize our thoughts is not any less necessary.  When we stress the focus on positive thinking, in actuality, all we’re doing is keeping ourselves from falling back on negative thoughts.  Thoughts of giving up, quitting, failing, frustration, and pain, however real, must be managed, snuffed, and not allowed to come to the forefront of our thoughts.

When your body and your positive mind are on the same page, you’ll be able to flow through challenges.  It’s when their out of balance that you’ll feel the most held back.  Be conscious of what thoughts you allow yourself to feed on, pull yourself out of those negative rooms and keep your mind focused on what will help you succeed.
