HOW IT ALL BEGAN...
CrossFit Hollywood, the first CrossFit gym established in the Hollywood area, was born out of the desire for community and optimal health.
Andy Thompson and Neil Mahoney met during the winter of 2006. Neil had been using CrossFit workouts for several years while in the Navy SEAL Teams. As a veteran, he continued his CrossFit training in Los Angeles where he attended the University of Southern California. At the time, Andy was a personal trainer at Gold’s Gym in Hollywood and started implementing CrossFit training methods with his clients. They arrived at the idea to open CrossFit Hollywood in the spring of 2008. A few months later, CrossFit Hollywood held its first classes in Pan Pacific Park.
In November 2008, CrossFit Hollywood moved into its current location near Hancock Park at 3rd and La Brea. Over the years, CrossFit Hollywood’s membership base has grown from 10 members in the park to over 200 current members in a thriving, health-oriented community. This is due largely to the high level of energy and professionalism Andy Thompson and his coaches provide. With regulated, small group classes, we focus on form before intensity. We want to educate our members about what they are doing and learn about fitness as a whole, rather than just following orders.
Here at CrossFit Hollywood, we are dedicated to our community. We offer membership discounts to students, military and first responders (police, fire fighters, paramedics and EMT), and we also extend that 10% discount to entertainment industry workers (SAG, AFTRA, grips, production, agents, casting, etc.). CrossFit Hollywood supports Hollywood!
Known for our expert coaching, we strive to provide the best level of instruction, professionalism and enthusiasm of any CrossFit gym in the greater Los Angeles area. Since 2008, 6 other CrossFit gyms have even sprouted from former CrossFit Hollywood members!
CrossFit Hollywood is known around the world for it’s exceptional coaching and fun environment. Because of our name and reputation, we will continue to provide a high caliber of fitness training to the local community.
