Home of CrossFit Poway

Unity is strength. Together, we can achieve more.

When we founded IronFire Athletics, Home of CrossFit Poway we set out to cultivate a community of strong, like minded people who are constantly striving to for progress - to provide them with the best coaches, a spacious facility and all of the tools they need to become the best version of themselves. 

Finding a place you love to train at everyday is a key factor in adopting a fit and healthy lifestyle (for good this time) - but it can also be really difficult. We understand that it's going to take more than a day or two to know if whether you've found the perfect place to train. That's why we're offering everyone who is interested in joining us a complementary month to enjoy the full IronFire experience for yourself!

We have the best fundamentals program in our region for those of you who are new to CrossFit where we cover the foundational movements of CrossFit, mobility, safety, the lingo, nutrition and much more. New athletes will be integrated into the regular CrossFit classes with confidence and a good base of strength. For the non-competitive experienced CrossFitter, our progressive scaling allows for RX+ versions of the WODs so you're constantly blowing past your self imposed limits.  We also have extensive experience training competitive athletes. Our members have brought home powerlifting and weightlifting medals and we sent one of our youth members to compete with grown men at the 2013 SoCal CrossFit Games Regionals!

There's a place at IronFire Athletics for everyone - so come on in and give it a try! Experience the CrossFit Poway culture for yourself. You won't regret it.

Be legendary. Believe you can and you're halfway there.

  • I was very skeptical about CrossFit before joining and I wasn't sure I'd be comfortable working out with males. I was accustomed to my all-female boot camp at Ladies First Fitness in Lancaster, CA-and well moving to San Diego had me looking for a new gym. My husband decided to check out CrossFit Poway and was hooked. . . After a month of attending the classes and raving about the workouts--I had to join. Almost a year into it next month, I look forward to working out every morning at CrossFit Poway. The trainers are knowledgeable, the owners are professional and thorough, and the culture is very supportive. Never did I think I'd be working out with males, let alone lift like a beast. Thank…

  • Ammmmmmmmaaaaaazzzzzing! Whether you're absolutely brand new (like myself) to CrossFit or experienced, this box is great! I've been going for about a month now. I'm still very new to CrossFit, I'm still learning, but I really like the way this place is run. They scale everything down based on your level of fitness! If you can't do some of the exercises you'll practice something that will eventually get you there, you'll be working your way up. The instructors take the time to teach everyone proper movement in each class and review things before the actual workout begins. So If you don't understand what's on the board they explain it to the entire class so you don't feel out of place for asking. Although, the entire…

  • I started at CrossFit Poway in January of 2011 at age 53, although I have been a runner and mountain biker for 20 years I had no upper body strength. CrossFit changed all that. By building up my muscle strength in the upper body, the  soreness in my right shoulder has gone away. My favorite part of CrossFit is that the workouts change daily. Jason is great and the other people in the classes are very friendly. You never get tired of people telling you how in shape you look!
