The Diablo Difference

More experience. We know what works, and why, because we’ve been doing it longer than any other CrossFit in the area. Diablo CrossFit began in 2005. The owners, Craig & Yvonne Howard (both 57yo) have been CrossFitting for almost 20 years each and are accomplished CrossFit competition athletes. We have 20 CrossFit Certified Coaches on staff with extensive training backgrounds and a plethora of CrossFit, Weightlifting, Gymnastic, Mobility and Nutrition certifications.
More success. We celebrate and learn from the performances of our athletes, but we thrive on the daily successes of our class members. Diablo has sent more athletes to the CrossFit Games than almost any other gym in the world. Diablo weightlifters have competed successfully at the National & World levels and set World Records. We know what it takes to be successful in competition and we leverage that success to enhance our workout programming for everyone in our community.

More classes. Diablo has more CrossFit classes, Weightlifting classes and Bootcamp-style classes every week than any other CrossFit gym in the Bay Area. CrossFit classes begin at 5:00AM and end at 8:30PM on most weekdays. Weekend classes start at 7:30AM and end at 12:00PM.

More hours. Diablo is open more hours than any other CrossFit gym in the area: 5AM until 8:30PM, Mon & Wed and 5AM until 7:30PM on Tue, Thu & Fri. Weekend hours are 7:30A until 1PM.

More equipment. Diablo has more CrossFit, weightlifting and gymnastic training equipment than any other gym in the area. We have 25 Concept 2 Rowers, many Air Bikes and Ski Ergs. Our Olympic Lifting area uses Eleiko barbells and Eleiko & Rogue competition plates. Our Open Gym facility has ample strongman training tools, including Yokes, Logs, Stones, Farmer Carry bars and more. We update our equipment every year to stay up to date with CrossFit training trends.

More facilities. Unlike any other CrossFit gym in the area, Diablo has shower facilities, a sauna, an InBody body composition testing machine, a Pro Shop with apparel, meal services, supplements and free coffee. We have more than 8,000 sq ft of dedicated CrossFit class space with more than 60 pull-up stations. We have dedicated 2000 sq ft of Open Gym and 2000 sq ft of Olympic Lifting areas.

More open gym. Diablo has more space and more hours for Open Gym training than any other CrossFit in the Bay Area. We offer Open Gym training all day, every day. And, when there is no class in session, the entire facility is available for training.

More fun. Diablo community and charity events are part of the calendar every month of the year.
