Founded in 2008 by five "original" crossfitters, CrossFit Santa Cruz Central is located about 200m from where the very first CrossFit gym was located on Research Park Drive in Soquel, California. 

Here is what some of our members and visitors are saying about us: 

I just wanted you to know how much we ABSOLUTELY enjoyed stopping by and being coached by you. The entire staff and group was SO welcoming. We were nervous at first but that all subsided when we arrived. I’ve been bragging to people here in Nash about our time with you. We are humbled and grateful.

I travel extensively and this Crossfit stands out because of the quality and enthusiasm of the trainers as well as the welcoming attitude of the members. The spirit of Crossfit is embodied in this gym. Enjoy!

Amazing place. I dropped in while on vacation and it was like I had been a member for years! Highly recommend whether you are deciding on becoming a member or just dropping in.
— Bob (Nipomo, CA)
Just wanted to say thank you for quite possibly the best Crossfit class I’ve ever attended. I’ve visited boxes all over the country and this is by far the best box I’ve ever been to. I understand the history with this place and understand why it is so special now. Amazing coaches and amazing members.
— Terry (Plano, TX)
I have never attained the level of fitness that I now possess and it is all due to Crossfit Santa Cruz Central and their outstanding owners and trainers. You will not find a better group of people, dedicated to improving themselves and supporting all those around them. If you want good health, strength, confidence and a new and vibrant social outlet, look no further.

Crossfit Santa Cruz Central is well equipped and a large, comfortable facility, but what makes it stand out are the people! The trainers here are second to none! This is a caring, thoughtful, well trained, motivated group of fitness motivators who work hard at making every workout count while always having fun and creating community.

Super friendly members that made me feel right at home while visiting Santa Cruz for work. Some of the best coaches I have had the pleasure of working with. Can’t beat learning technique from Annie!
— Cyle (Sacramento, CA)
I make it a point to stop in for a quick WOD when I am in town. Gary, Annie, and the members are always welcoming and a true pleasure to be around. Crossfit Santa Cruz Central represents the true meaning of what a Crossfit community is. Thank you for the good time/pain and I look forward to stopping by again.
