Whether you're a visiting drop-in or a Nevada County local, CrossFit Gold Rush is the box to try...I started my CrossFit journey at CFGR and am so thankful I did! From pull-ups to hand-stand push ups, my fitness and strength have increased in ways I never imagined. Last year, the CFGR coaching crew patiently worked with me through a wrist injury. Everyday I leave CFGR knowing I worked harder because of the support of the coaches and other athletes. I've visited other CF boxes around the country, and none of them compare to CFGR.Sharon Dayle
I have been working privately with Cameron from Crossfit Gold Rush now for about 2 months and I can't believe how amazing he is! He listened to what my fitness/performance goals are and built a program specifically for me and my sport. He is SO knowledgeable about building strength and he cares a lot about his clients. All the coaches at Crossfit Gold Rush do! They have created this AMAZING environment at their gym that makes you look forward to going back there day after day! I can't recommend them enough!Tiana Rockwell, NTP
CFGR is the best CrossFit gym in Nevada County! They focus on all aspects of crossfit including strength, cardio, agility, coordination and flexibility. The programming is well rounded and the coaches are always encouraging. They emphasize on form before weight, and always walk through each lift or activity before the WOD. The gym is CLEAN, and well organized. I am happy to call CFGR my crossfit family!Jenna Charnley
CrossFit Gold Rush has been my home "box" since October of 2013. I've been both encouraged and challenged in my fitness while learning weightlifting form and mobility techniques alongside the fitness programming. My strength and overall fitness is the best it's been in years. Even years-old injuries are better now than they've ever been, allowing me to enjoy things that had once been painful. Proper movement and appropriate load are priorities in the coaching as is their desire to give clients the tools needed to improve any issues that get in the way of their fitness goals. At CFGR, I don't just feel like a client or a patron of a business, but rather a member of the community.Amy Collins

History of CrossFit
CrossFit was formally established in 2000 by Greg Glassman. By 2005 there were 13 affiliate gyms. Because of the incredible results people have seen, there are now over 8,800 CrossFit affiliate gyms worldwide, making it the largest fitness organization in the world. How do you argue with those results? One of the best articles, published by “The Box” magazine, outlines the history of CrossFit. One of CrossFit’s largest strengths is that it is scalable and usable by anyone at any age. There are 80 year old people using CrossFit to stay healthy, 350lb + people using CrossFit to lose weight, and 5 year old children using it to learn about fitness. Even the US Military uses the methodology to train it’s Special Forces.
A simple way to sum it up. CrossFit founder Greg Glassman realized that specializing in one athletic domain meant losing the ability of the athlete to perform in others. Think of the strength capacity of a marathon runner, or the endurance capacity of a power lifter? They gave up one capacity for another. Greg’s goal was to determine the “Best methodology to determine and produce the fittest humans on the plant”. His discovery was that by mixing the best training disciplines of other sports, we could become the best and most fit versions of ourselves. What is athleticism? It is being able to perform optimally in the following modal domains: cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance and accuracy.
CrossFit is the most effective way to do this, in the least amount of time. 8,800 gyms and hundreds of thousands of people can’t be wrong. If you’re in or near Grass Valley and surrounding areas, come join a CrossFit Gym who values you as an individual and wants to help you achieve your goals.
