Hello fellow human.

If you've come looking for the bro-iest, most hard core, we-will-fix-your-life, beast-mode-to-the-max CrossFit box in Oakland ... 

This isn't the box you're looking for.

Don't get us wrong. We love lifting heavy things, we embrace gymnastics and Olympic lifting, and we're actually kind of great at providing an environment where people can grow (physically, spiritually, emotionally, communally). But the truth is: We're not gurus, or psychologists, or even nutritionists. 

We are, simply put, a community of people who love to exercise and get stronger together (with guidance from excellent trainers who know their sh!t). That's it. That's all the magic.

Here's what founders Jeremy Yee and Rafael Vega want you to find when you attend classes at CrossFit V16:

  1. An approach to CrossFit that is accessible to anyone.
  2. WODs (workout of the day) that are beneficial to all levels, beginner to expert.
  3. FUN! And by fun we mean, you know, something closer to "almost fun," like visiting your grandparents or eating your vegetables. Good for you. Glad you did it. Better person for it.
