CrossFit Kindred is a functional fitness school in San Jose, California. Our caring community inspires real people to rekindle their passion for fitness and life.

We combine high-quality CrossFit coaching, strategies for inside and outside the gym, and social accountability to help you strengthen your body, clear your mind, and free your spirit--no matter what your starting point.

What is CrossFit? (courtesy of CrossFit LA):

CROSSFIT IS FUNCTIONAL
Functional movements in the gym are those that replicate movement in real life or sport. For example, nearly every day in life, you bend over and pick something up. We ‘practice’ that with a movement like the deadlift. Now think for a moment - when’s the last time you did a bicep curl during your normal day? Can’t remember? Neither can we. That, in our definition is NOT function - neither are flys, lateral raises, tricep kick backs, or any other isolated joint movement for the purpose of making one muscle bigger or stronger. Are those movements bad? No. But in terms of the functionality of your body, don’t really have a place in training (unless you’re rehabbing an injury).

CROSSFIT IS INTENSITY
How much work can you do in a given period of time? The more you can do, the fitter you are, and the higher the intensity of your training. To get this intensity, we we push it right to the edge of “the cliff”... and practice staying there. This ‘red zone’ is extremely risky. One false move, and you’re off the edge… pukie, injury, extreme soreness. But when you’re not close enough, it usually means your results are compromised. CrossFit will challenge you to train in that zone.  It’s neither easy nor simple, and is something that takes desire, commitment, and practice. One thing to remember, intensity is determined by your ability to hold good form - we never recommend speed at the expense of form.

CROSSFIT IS VARIETY
In CrossFit’s definition of fitness, being functionally capable across a broad array of fitness related skills is of primary importance. These skills include strength, flexibility, endurance, stamina, speed, power, agility, balance, coordination and accuracy. If you want to be good in ALL of these areas, variety is a must. To get this variety, we use movements and training techniques and skills from the sports of weightlifting, gymnastics, and metabolic conditioning. We also sprinkle in the use of kettle bells, plyometrics, medicine balls, calisthenics, and sprinting. CrossFit specializes in NOT-specializing. Any athlete from any sport can use CrossFit as a training method, and return to their sport better, faster, stronger, more capable.

THE KINDRED PHILOSOPHY

We believe that every person matters--and we're on a mission to help you value yourself in that way, starting with your body and health. CrossFit is a unique form of fitness that demands mindfulness, persistence, patience, confidence, open-mindedness, self-compassion, and generosity. Done right, CrossFit training is much like being in a dojo, where you get to strengthen yourself on many levels.

We bring a strong family culture to our students and to all aspects of our business, because in our increasingly tech-driven world, a positive environment to learn and grow with others on a regular basis is getting harder to find.

While real families are often full of loyalty, love, and support, family members can also get stuck in unhealthy patterns together. At Kindred, we're committed to giving back--spreading a new culture of community that uplifts its members, and encourages them to then inspire others in their own families and communities in turn.
 
We strive to infuse these values into each interaction with our students, into our staff training, and into the way we run our business. Each member of the Kindred family has something to contribute.  Thanks for taking the time to get to know us!

Started CrossFit Kindred over a month ago. There are a lot of great things about Kindred. Don't let the location turn you off. I know traffic can be a headache there with all the construction but it's worth it. The workouts are awesome and you'll definitely see results and improvements. You'll definitely be pushed whenever you're there but they're also about getting the techniques down. One of the things I enjoy most about going there is how community minded the space is. they are welcoming, friendly, and encouraging. This also goes for the members that come here! definitely check them out.
