Free Evaluation & Workout – Sign Up Now!
Best gym experience I've ever had. Been going to Crossfit for over 6 months now. This is the 2nd gym in the area, and it is by far the best experience I've ever had in any organized work out setting. The coaches are encouraging, without being drill sergeants. They will push you to your limit, but also help keep your expectations realistic. In particular Josh (Jorgy)/Ricardo are my favorites. They have a huge facility, its 16000 sqft I think, with all the equipment you could want. They also have a few different classes you can try, if you don't want to do the straight up Crossfit class every time. The culture overall is great, and everyone who attends the gym is really cool. Even though the work out is very taxing at times, its also very rewarding, and makes you want to keep coming back. Whether you haven't worked out in years, or you are a fitness junky, this is a great place to stay or get healthy.
I checked out Diablo CrossFit as an out-of-towner drop-in. It was a great experience and definitely recommend this box to other out-of-town CrossFitters. Before dropping in, I purchased a one-day pass online on their website. Using the pass, I selected a date and time that fit my schedule. Members and drop-ins alike need to sign up for classes in advance due to a class limit. I was nervous, not knowing what to expect, but my fears soon disappeared. The Pleasant Hill facility was huge with multiple rooms. The equipment was in good condition and I liked the layout. There was plenty of room for everyone participating in the class. I met Coach Erica, who would be leading the class in the next hour. Erica was motivating and friendly. She led a second warm up as a group, then explained each component of the Workout of the Day (WOD). I really liked how she broke down each movement and showed scaled versions. We set up each station of the WOD and it was time to start... Ready, set, GO! I won't go into details about the WOD since it changes daily, but I had a great time working out at Diablo CrossFit. Other members made me feel welcome and helped me write down my scores after each set. I also appreciated Coach Erica's encouragement along the way. Thank you to Diablo CrossFit for the hospitality!
I have been going to DCF for about 4 months now. I hit my mid-40s, and decided it was more than time to get some strength and stamina into my life. I had been doing a lower impact workout, but I was getting frustrated with my lack of progress in the classes. A friend talked (OK, bullied) me into trying Crossfit, and I found Diablo. it's not easy, and it's kind of hard to describe, but man, do you get hooked. I'm not usually a joiner, and I am far from "athletic," but I've found myself really looking forward to my classes at DCF. I've found everyone incredibly supportive, classmates and staff alike. The coaches don't hover over you, but they will help you to do your best, and then push it a little farther. I've always felt included and welcome, despite a running speed slightly slower than a three legged turtle. If you show them you are serious, then they will be there for you. I already feel stronger, and I've been told I look better. It's a great place, and I'm glad I found it.
This time around, we will be adding the Primal Nutrition Challenge back to compliment the Whole Life Challenge. We had a lot of members drop off, not log their food, and really not participate. To encourage healthy habits and lifestyle we think adding back the PNC will be a HUGE help to keep you going throughout the 8 week process.
The “WLC” is an 8 week program with 3 different levels of nutrition based on how serious you want to be. If you are just looking for help cutting out a few things, you can go in as “beginner”. For more information read more about it below and watch the video!
The Whole Life Challenge is FREE for those who participated in last challenge. If you are new the cost is $39 through December 31st or $49 January 1st – January 23rd.
♦♦ If you have outside friends or family who could also benefit from this program they can sign up and be on the Diablo team with you!♦♦
Tracking all this is as easy as using your iPhone, yup…they’ve got an App for that.
*Every week it will be a different topic with different speakers and we may repeat topics depending on importance. The topics and speakers will be posted in advance but we hope you can make then all (it’s only 30 minutes!) to get the full benefit of the program.
January 17th – Challenge Begins (But you can sign up as late as the 23rd)
January 16th – 6:00pm – Kick off Meeting, Baseline Workouts*, Photos for PNC members (new date)
February 7th – 10:30am – Re-test Baseline workout and Nutrition talk
March 13th - 6:00pm – Finale and Retest Baseline Workouts
* Kick off Meeting: It will be structured like a regular CF class. We will mobilize do a strength baseline, metcon baseline, and the last 30 minutes will be going over how to do the challenge and Q&A. The “Baseline Workout” will be announced at the kickoff meeting. (If you miss the meeting we will publish the workout so you can do it on your own)
If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to Christy Lee or Andrew Descalso:

It’s that time again…. The CrossFit Open. The 2015 Reebok CrossFit Games season is a three-stage test of fitness, comprised of the Open, Regionals, and the world championships, the CrossFit Games. This year has brought many changes to not only the Open but also the qualifying process for Regionals and the Games.
When: Feb 26th – Mar 30th (Thurs – Mon)
Where: The workout of the week will be published on the CrossFit Games Site every Thursday at 5pm Pacific time.
You can do the workout anytime during the week, however if you want to submit your score it needs to be judged by an approved CF judge OR submitted to the games site via video.
To reserve an official judge and participate in the CF Open heats at DCF, visit mindbody (where we register for classes)
We will have heats running at DCF Alamo from 7:30am – 9:30am and in DCF Pleasant Hill from 10:00am – 12:00pm. There will be 30 people per 30 min class time (12 for Alamo). Show up BEFORE the class starts with plenty of time to warm up. You will not know when the exact heat time is until you get there and check the white board. Note – You will only be able to do the workout if there are enough judges signed up for that time.
If you are interested in judging at the NorCal Regional you must take the online judging course. It is not mandatory for Open judges but it is encouraged.
The 60- to 90-minute course takes you through the basics of being a good judge. After each module, there are a series of written and multiple choice questions, filmed scenarios and freeze-frame judgment calls that will challenge and support your ability to judge human movement in real time. The course is not easy, but should benefit all potential competition judges and even anyone interested in the subtleties of human movement and performance. There is no limit on how many times one can take the test, but you must pass if you want to be considered to be a Regional judge. If you are interested in becoming a Regional judge, you must pass the online course and be an active judge in the Open (all workouts performed at an affiliate will have a judge’s name linked with their score)
$10 fee to take the course and register as an official judge.

We think it is time to get together again as a community and reconnect at the town hall meeting and celebrate the CF Open completion.
At the town hall meeting we will be covering some important things coming up BUT this is most importantly for our members to get us in a room and have any questions answered about the gym. If you do not feel comfortable asking in front of people, there will be question box there to drop it anonymously.
Since we are celebrating all the hard work over the 5 weeks of the Open, DCF will also be providing catered food for you to eat. We will also be recognizing the efforts of the athletes who scored for all the teams over the 5 weeks and athletes who are continuing their journey onto the CF Regional.
This event is FREE for all our members so we hope you can come hang out – even if it’s just to say hi!
