Just a quick post to let everyone know this is our first week of operation as a CrossFit affiliate. We will have up to 17 group classes as early as next week. Our website additions should be up shortly. We have a CrossFit Los Altos forum here:

Check out the details for the CrossFit Los Altos party!

Cheers,
Gabe

Congrats, Gabe!

On a side note...

I don't wanna start a Cali turf war or anything, but I once heard someone remark that SoCal had become the geographic capital of CrossFit. Looks to me like NorCal is catching up!

;-)

Mike

Thanks Mike :-)

I think having multiple locations is great to spread the philosophy. We can affect a larger percentage of the population. We have a nice spread so far with Santa Cruz, Chico, Boulder Creek, Oakland, San Francisco, San Jose, Redwood City, and Los Altos (hopefully I didn't forget anyone). It is an exciting time :-)

Cheers,
Gabe

Hey Gabe,

Great job on getting this started. I'm working on joining you soon as an affiliate also. I'll be sure to check out your party. Looks like it'll be a lot of fun.

Keep us posted.

Francisco

Gabe, congratulations on your new CF affiliate.
We have just the opposite situation here in Florida, only two affiliates in the whole state!
One in Jacksonville (about 5 hours drive away)and ours in Sarasota.
Hopefully, my friend will be opening CrossFit Miami soon.

Good luck Jeremy. Depending on where you are located in Sacramento I might have a few family members that I can convince to train with you.

Thanks Frank. In time I bet there will be a lot of CF affiliates in every state.

Frank,

That'll be changing in the near future. I'm in the Orlando area and am planning on opening CrossFit Central Florida. So we'll be up to a whopping 3!
