Why Choose United Barbell?

We know you have many CrossFit gyms to choose from in the Bay Area. Here's some of what makes us special:


We're one of the oldest, most respected CrossFit gyms in the Bay Area, serving San Francisco since 2010. Our coaches are dedicated, knowledgable, passionate, and caring professionals, as well as local to international level competitive athletes. We never stop learning and passing that expertise on to you.

We see the big picture, and our focus is on enabling you to be healthy and strong - at the top of your game - for the rest of your life.


Located in SOMA, right by CalTrain, Muni, and just a short walk from BART, our class schedule offers a full range of specialty classes, open gym time, and our unlimited membership grants gym access beyond class times.
