About Mission CrossfitMaking the Impossible Possible
Making the Impossible, Possible!
At Mission CrossFit we believe in “Making the Impossible, Possible!” We believe that anyone, no matter their current physical condition, can be a fit Athlete. That through CrossFit, every one can have a long, healthy, active life, full of rich experiences. We believe that kids love to run, jump, and play, and thus love to exercise and be more athletic. We believe in achieving goals, daily.
Who is Mission CrossFit?
Mission CrossFit is a licensed CrossFit affiliate that serves the cities of Mission Viejo, Aliso Viejo, Lake Forest, and other neighboring cities in Orange County, California. Our coaches are all certified Crossfit Trainers, each with many years of experience.
CrossFit uses some equipment and methods that regular gyms don’t. Therefore, the best way to practice CrossFit is at a CrossFit affiliate like Mission CrossFit.
We are located in a recently expanded 6400 square foot facility located on the Northwest corner of Alicia Parkway and Via Fabricante, approximately 1 mile east of the 5 Freeway. We take pride in our facility and equipment; as such, it is always in top-notch condition. Most importantly, at Mission CrossFit we have a great time working out and getting fit.

Why We CrossFit
We CrossFit because we want to live long, healthy, active lives full of rich experiences. We want to be capable of any task life might throw at us. We want to spend our time on this earth unencumbered by sickness and able to tackle any challenge. That is why we CrossFit, and CrossFit enables every one of those goals.
Our Philosophy on Fitness
We have designed our program to elicit as broad of an adaptational response as possible. When it comes to basic fitness, we don’t believe in a specialized fitness program. We made a deliberate attempt to optimize physical competence in each of ten recognized fitness domains. These domains are:
- Cardiovascular and Respiratory Endurance
Combined Org & Neuro
We believe in enhancing an individual’s competency at all physical tasks. Our athletes are trained to perform successfully at multiple, diverse, and randomized physical challenges. Our CrossFit program is distinctive in its focus on maximizing neuroendocrine response, developing power, cross-training with multiple training modalities, constant training and practice with functional movements, and the development of successful diet strategies.
Our athletes are trained to bike, run, swim, and row at short, middle, and long distances guaranteeing exposure and competency in each of the three main metabolic pathways.
We train our athletes in gymnastics from rudimentary to advanced movements garnering great capacity at controlling the body both dynamically and statically while maximizing strength to weight ratio and flexibility. We also place a heavy emphasis on Olympic Weightlifting having seen this sport’s unique ability to develop an athletes’ explosive power, control of external objects, and mastery of critical motor recruitment patterns. And finally we encourage and assist our athletes to explore a variety of sports as a vehicle to express and apply their fitness.
At this point you’re probably thinking, “Great! but what does this all mean?”
Essentially this all means that our program will prepare you for all the physical demands life throws at you. We’re not a specialized program that focusses on one thing. With a specialized program, like training for a marathon, marathoners focus on one thing, running. Running, long distances at one speed actually. These athletes are likely to be not very strong. Now Weightlifters, however can probably lift very heavy weights, but they more likely than not can’t run long distances. So are these two types of athletes truly fit? Hmm……
With CrossFit, we intend to you make you good at every fitness modality. You might not be the fastest runner or the strongest weightlifter, but you will be fast and you will be strong, making you ready for anything.
