If you live in the North San Diego County area make sure you check out Carlsbad CrossFit near El Camino Real and Palomar Airport Road.  My good friend and contributor to this site Rick Gonzalez opened it last month and you won’t be disappointed with the treatment you will get at his box.

If you think about the things that you would want in CrossFit trainers: trainers educated in a wide variety of functional areas, trainers passionate about what they are teaching, innovative programming and a commitment to ensuring their members are continually improving – I assure you that you will not regret your decision to train with him.

I don’t pass out recommendations or referrals lightly or without really believing that the referred will be satisfied and this time is no different.  In terms of being a professional, Rick’s thirst for knowledge and dedication to learning everything he can about a topic has made him the most prepared person in the room more times than I can count.  When it comes to fitness and CrossFit, his passion is clear to everyone he meets and whether you are looking for advice on nutrition, your form during the WOD, or teaching techniques, it wont take you long to realize how much time and effort he has put into preparing to train you.

In addition to improving your performance, many of his trainers are certified as CrossFit Kids instructors and this summer he plans on offering more options for your children as well.

At a minimum, check out his website www.carlsbadcrossfit.com to learn more.
