Left Coast CrossFit

At Left Coast CrossFit in Laguna Hills we value community, hard work, accountability and personal growth. We refuse to accept mediocrity from ourselves or from you. Left Coast CrossFit operates under the principle that you can have excuses or results, but not both. Suffering in community is a powerful thing, and we reject the notion that your goals will be attainable without commitment and work.

We help you cultivate true fitness, forged over time by developing your strengths and working on your weaknesses. We commit to coaching you to improve your cardiovascular endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy. These 10 general physical domains are what we improve. Will you commit to the training with us at Left Coast CrossFit?
