Box Spotlight: CrossFit Code 3 – Gardena, California

CrossFit Code 3 is dedicated to assisting their members in establishing and surpassing their physical goals. Whether you want to lose weight, perfect weightlifting techniques, or compete in the sport of CrossFit, this box is known for tailoring their programs to fit their athletes! From a handful of members in 2011, Code 3 Athletics has reached almost 200 members who train at their 6,000 square foot facility in Torrance, CA.

The owners of CrossFit Code 3, Daniel Wu and Marc Sobremesana, have been addicted to fitness their entire lives. Marc came from a background of gymnastics and break dancing, and Daniel was a former wrestler and wrestling coach. The owners first met at 24-hour fitness, where they worked as fitness and membership managers. In 2007, they discovered the sport of CrossFit and began doing workouts from the main site. Daniel said, “I had been used to really hardcore fitness training when I was a wrestler, but kind of lost touch with that when I went to college. When I found Crossfit, it really sparked that interest in the same type of training that I had done as a kid.” Marc had also been seeking for new ways to branch out of the corporate fitness world, and saw CrossFit as his chance.

Marc and Daniel had formed a group of regular members from 24-hour fitness, and would WOD together on a regular basis. This group eventually became the first members of CrossFit Code 3! They opened a small location in 2011, and decided to relocate across town to a larger facility once popularity of the gym began to grow.

Crossfit Code 3 has three different levels of training that are made to fit the goals of their members:

-Their general Crossfit program makes up about 75% of their member base. This program has classes throughout the day, and is made for someone who wants to stay in shape! The great part about this program is that no prior athletic background is needed.

-For those interested in competing in functional fitness competitions, Code 3 offers a more individualized program led by Andy Paik. These programs are a lot more intense and consist of more advanced movements and weights.

-Code 3 also offers programming specialized for Olympic Weightlifting! They currently have a competitive weightlifting team and work with them on a daily basis.

So whether your goals are to compete in the games or just live a healthy lifestyle, CrossFit Code 3 has the perfect programming for you!

“Expect excellence” is a simple statement that describes what Crossfit Code 3 always strives for. The best way to characterize this box is quoted directly from the website, “Although we train hard, we value finding a balance with a fun, community-based atmosphere, where you’ll get in the best shape of your life and make friends doing so.”
