CrossFit Novato


Established in 2010, CrossFit Novato is a strength and conditioning facility that develops individuals, athletes and teams to reach high levels of fitness through constantly varied functional movement performed at high intensity. We are located at 7427 Redwood Blvd., Novato, CA 94947. Our training methods produce tangible results for all levels of fitness: from children to elite athletes and everything in between.

Our rich history is closely connected to the Dark Horse.

dark horse,
1. a competitor about whom little is known but who unexpectedly wins or succeeds.

We support and celebrate athletes of all ages and physical abilities. We believe there is a little Dark Horse in all of us. Our mission is to build the Champion that lies within.

What Is CrossFit?


CrossFit begins with a belief in fitness. The aim of CrossFit is to forge a broad, general and inclusive fitness. We have sought to build a program that will best prepare trainees for any physical contingency — not only for the unknown, but for the unknowable. After looking at all sport and physical tasks collectively, we asked what physical skills and adaptations would most universally lend themselves to performance advantage. Capacity culled from the intersection of all sports demands would quite logically lend itself well to all sport. In sum, our specialty is not specializing.

CrossFit is many things. Primarily, it’s a fitness regimen developed by Coach Greg Glassman over several decades. He was the first person in history to define fitness in a meaningful, measurable way (increased work capacity across broad time and modal domains). CrossFit itself is defined as that which optimizes fitness (constantly varied functional movements performed at relatively high intensity). CrossFit is also the community that spontaneously arises when people do these workouts together. In fact, the communal aspect of CrossFit is a key component of why it’s so effective.

A regimen of constantly varied (CV), functional movements (FM) performed at high intensity (@HI) in a communal environment leads to health and fitness.
