Owners Michelle and Tony are a married Christian couple with values that are passed on to their 3 children. Both born and raised in San Diego. They are committed to their faith, each other, their family and their community.

They utilize the CrossFit Method to maintain their physical abilities as they raise their 3 children and protect our nation in their professional careers. Nearly 40+ years of combined experience maintaining top physical condition to protect our nation puts them in the position to pass their experience onto others.
