I’ve been coming here for about 2.5 – 3 years now. The coaches are great, the programming is excellent, and the community is very close. CrossFit Flood will have many community events throughout the year such as the summer competition day within the gym called “Flood, Sweat, and Beers”, the annual Christmas party, and more. These events help the community grow even closer and help members meet each other who otherwise would never have met. The members who usually go to the 4pm class will get to meet members they may not have met because they go to the 6:30am class. No one has ever been judgmental against me. Quite the opposite in fact, this gym is nothing but encouraging. I once finished a workout that took me much longer than everyone else, and everyone stuck around and encouraged me until I finished.
Before I joined CrossFit Flood in the summer of 2012, I was a member of 24 Hour Fitness. All I cared about was lifting weights and getting bigger. When I first started CrossFit, I was afraid of getting weaker since many of the workouts are so cardio heavy. Not only did I get stronger, I also increased my cardiovascular endurance substantially.
My daughter attends the kids class on the weekends and she loves it. Coach Mike is awesome at what he does. He keeps the kids focused, motivated and makes the class fun at the same time making sure the kids always want to come back for more. My daughter also trains Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and CrossFit has really helped her out. If your in the area or thought about bringing your kid in to try a class, do not hesitate to give Coach Mike and CrossFit Flood a try. You will not be disappointed.
I drive by at least 8 other CrossFit gyms to get to this one, because of the people. This isn’t one of those competitors only gyms, where if you’re not at the next CrossFit games, you aren’t a priority. Flood is far from that; the coaches want you to be the best you can be. If that means doing body weight work when the prescribed weight is 115, then that’s what you’re doing. The other members are just as encouraging, no matter what level you’re working at. Everyone is supportive and motivates you to do your very best. There are class times to fit everyone’s schedule and unlike other gyms; people plan to do things together on the weekends. Weekend volleyball games, hikes, or even a holiday party; you’re not just joining a gym, you’re joining the Flood family.
Dropped in this last week when I was in town on travel. Walked through the door and was immediately approached by coach Mike. He asked about my background and gave me a quick rundown of the gym. I wasn’t able to make the CrossFit class but was able to join their Oly lifting class which was a huge help for me as I don’t get to spend as much time as I’d like to on it. Really helpful coach and welcoming athletes. Excited to drop in again next time in town.
My first day here today ,I never been to this kind of workout before ,it hard for me but I did it good so far and I feel I love it ,everyone very nice and friendly,Mike and Brian very helpful,they will give you try for free a week to make sure I like them before you want to sign up
This place is awesome. I didn't even know what CrossFit was and I came in for a free week and have never left! 9 months later here I am reaching goals I never thought I could reach!! The coaches and people who workout here are so supportive! Thanks for such an awesome atmosphere!
I absolutely love the community that this gym has, the energy and the caring coaches. They're always there to support you and keep you motivated. I really appreciate that you can scale and modify workouts based on your fitness level and strength. The coaches are there to help you and ensure you don't injure yourself. CrossFit is a great investment on your physical and mental well being. Highly recommend 🙂
I've always said the hardest part is walking in the door, especially for the first time. If you've been thinking about trying CrossFit but feel intimidated or think you need to be in better shape before you start, just come in. The coaches are amazing and will scale any workout to meet your current ability. The other members will welcome you and cheer you on. If you've been in CrossFit for a while and looking for a new box, this is the place. I've been part of a few different gyms and this one is it. Coach Mike, the owner, genuinely loves what it does, cares about the members of his gym and creating a community of all types of people with the same goal...to live a healthier life. I can't believe how much progress I've made in the past year and I couldn't have done it on my own. I love the Flood family and you will too.
This is an awesome gym! I have been going here for about a month now. All the coaches have been very welcoming and helpful. I was nervous to start Crossfit but I am glad I did! Every day is challenging and motivating. Take advantage of the free trial week and you will love it! Mike and Brian are awesome guys!
Great community. Members are welcoming and supportive of each other.Coaches are great. This the only reasonably priced CF gym in San Diego.
Crossfit Flood’s trainers/owners, Mike and Brian, are awesome. They are concerned with your form throughout everything, which you hear a lot about when listening to people rag on Crossfit. They push you to your limits without screaming at you like maniacs. At Flood you find the true spirit of Crossfit. The trainers and the members cheer each other on; whether in competition with one another or just on the sideline everyone just wants the people working out to feel better and be better than they were the day before. Whether you’re setting a goal to lose weight, to get stronger, or to become more generally healthy and fit, Brian and Mike are there for you and will help you reach your goals.
I first walked through the door of CrossFit Flood two years ago. I was middle aged, overweight, super stressed, and tired all the time. Coach Mike and Coach Brian were welcoming and informative. I immediately bought into the philosophy of CrossFit and I was excited to get started. Of course I had to scale almost every workout but I didn’t care. I started to make slow but steady progress and occasionally I can do a workout as prescribed (RX)! Everyone at CrossFit Flood is so nice and I am actually having fun exercising! Here I am, two years later, at 50 years old, and I have never felt better in my whole life. This past year I signed up for the CrossFit Open, competed in three USAW weightlifting competitions and the Rumble in Paradise, an invitational CrossFit Competition in San Diego.
It was the first time I was able to work out and give 100% while not feeling weird for making grunting noises, or have to apologize for leaving a trail of sweat behind me. It was great to compete against the others in my class and engage in camaraderie as a result of the extremely difficult workout we endured together. My hands were getting torn apart, my shins scraped up, and I was sore in places that I didn’t know muscles existed – and I loved every minute of it. Listen to me, I sound like a beast. Well I assure you I’m not, but I definitely feel like one after completing a WOD.
Sometimes all we need is an extra push, and coaches Brian and Mike are always there to make sure we are reaching our potential. They push us beyond our physical and mental comfort zones to show us what we are truly capable of. They have been phenomenal in their efforts to make us better everyday. I have met so many great people that keep me going, and Brian and Mike–as well as the rest of the community–are the most motivating factor for me. I am happy to call CrossFit Flood my family! 🙂
Mike and Brian are great guys who are running a fantastic gym. I dropped in at CF Flood for the first time about 2 years ago and Brian welcomed me in open arms. I came back yesterday (Feb 2015) and Mike greeted me as if I was a regular and made me feel right at home... I’ve been to a number of boxes around the US and in Europe during my travels and I have to say that Flood is the friendliest and most professional of all the boxes I’ve dropped in on. I’d highly recommend joining CF Flood and being part of the fantastic workouts and great community Mike and Brian have put together. I look forward to my next visit to San Diego and dropping in on a class again.
I’ve been coming here for almost 4 months now. The trainers that I’ve met (Mike & Ahri) are great! Both very motivational and knowledgeable. I was just looking to get back in shape, but found much more! It’s definitely challenging, but much more rewarding. Even the people in the classes are great! I can’t say enough about this place! I’ve made a lot of progress with a lot more to go and I won’t be stopping any time soon. Thanks to everyone here that has, and continues to help me be better!
I have been part of the CrossFit Flood family since March of 2010. When I first started CrossFit I was nervous and out of shape. I knew the stigma about CrossFit and was not sure I was ready for this type of intensity. What I found was a community open to every ability level. The encouragement to give each workout my best yet work at my own ability has been incredible. I now have great friends who I look forward to seeing each week. I know they will be both encouraging and push me to do the best I can. CrossFit Flood is the only gym I have ever found with this type of community.
I have been here two times, its small but don't let that fool you. The trainers and the work outs are intense. Will have your heart pumping and body sweating! I recommend trying this gym out if you live around the area, its kinda' hidden but its behind Harley Davidson Dealer (update: Harley Davidson moved...future home of Tesla). Give it a try, you too will be impressed.
I will never be able to express just how grateful I am to be part of the Flood Family. From the day I went in to try out a class I felt right at home and knew I was where I needed to be. The owners and trainers are dedicated to being the best they can for their members, all the while giving you the friendship and motivation that I believe is integral for a CrossFit Box.
Great location and friendly staff! I’m new to cross-fit and very surprised at the results in such a short period of time. I wish I started a long time ago. If getting in the best shape of your life interests you..give it a shot. You won’t be disappointed!
What an amazing group of people! Not only did they win me over with the community they've created but the programming they have is pretty legit. If you're looking for a place to drop in at or even call your home, this is where you should go! I can't wait to visit the area again so I can WOD with everyone again! Until next time guys & gals!
I dropped in for a Saturday class and was impressed with culture and the workout. Coach Mike was super friendly and knowledgable and everyone I met was super nice as well. Loved that my older kids could stay in their waiting room and play while I worked out. We stayed and let the kids do the kids class. They loved it! Came back Sunday for another class for them. We'll definitely be coming back. Also, they have a military discount on top of their already awesome prices. Kid friendly, great work out, great people, great prices. What more could you want from a gym?
This cf box still has the feel of cf gyms from 6+ years ago... What you do have is a close knit group of trainers and members that make for a great experience. Lots of support and knowledge floating around here. Their pricing is more in line with reality than other boxes in the area. But here’s their best attribute, in my opinion. The programming! It is done logically. It makes sense. It’s exactly what I expect from a cf gym and that is, overall fitness. This gym deserves the positive reviews it’s receiving. Keep up the good work!
