As one of the first CrossFit gyms in the Temecula Valley, Overload set itself apart, by treating members like family. From the start, we created a community of encouragement, integrity and authenticity. Our members and coaches have a unique camaraderie that engage each other physically and mentally, to be our best. Without question, there is no other CrossFit gym like Overload.

What Is CrossFit?

Constantly varied, functional movements at high intensity…what does that mean? Rather than give you the standard definition of CrossFit, this definition will provide an explanation of what a CrossFit class is like and what to expect. A regular class can be explained as having a personal trainer in a small group setting. The workout in a CrossFit class is infinitely scalable and modifiable. So regardless of one’s fitness level or limitations, the instructor can scale the workout accordingly. This is a primary reason that many couples seem to CrossFit together with different fitness levels and goals.

A typical class will incorporate a group dynamic warm up, a skill portion to teach the various movements of the daily workout, the actual workout and if time permits, a cool down with mobility. Everyday the workouts are different and you can expect to not be within your comfort zone. It is within these moments of being outside your comfort zone that you will grow as an athlete and person. You will learn to tap into physical and mental strengths that you were unaware that you possessed.

In a CrossFit program, you will work on the ten general physical skills. They are cardiorespiratory endurance, strength, stamina, flexibility, power, speed, balance, accuracy, coordination, and agility. It is the combination of all these general skills that will make you a well rounded athlete. Some days will be more based on strength, some days on cardio endurance and some days a combination of both. Regardless of the daily programming, you will be working the entire class time. General classes incorporate body weight and barbell movements with variable rep schemes and time domains.
