We all hate going to the gym. Even those who tell others they like it. We all need a little extra motivation to get vertical — especially these days, with the beach calling us. PB CrossFit is that motivation. No matter how long it’s been or how difficult it may seem, working out all starts with a step — and sometimes we need someone pushing us to take that step.

PB CrossFit was started by two guys — Anders Varner and Bryan Boorstein — who have a passion for fitness. The six certified crossfit trainers will ensure you never get the same work out twice. They do their best to mix things up so you get the best burn possible and challenge yourself to do things outside your comfort zone, where changes happen quickly.

It’s clear when you step into PB CrossFit these are people who love working out. And the feeling rubs off on you. They are excited and energized, and only a tad bit intimidating. When you work out at PB CrossFit, you instantly have a bunch of workout buddies who want to see you succeed and reach your fitness goals.

The gym is focused on getting people into the gym and taking the fear out of working out in a new way. Varner, the co-founder, said it’s his goal to “bring a high level of fitness to the average person” and he encourages people to attend because “being around healthy people will make you healthier.”

There is a beginner’s class that is scaled to new members and workouts can be tailored to meet individual needs.

Pacific Beach resident Hilary Achauer has been a member for two years and she said she looks forward to her workouts and the challenge they provide.

“I’ve done things I never thought I could do and that feeling of accomplishment spreads to other areas of your life,” Achauer said.

PB CrossFit owners said they want to start the foundation of fitness early. The gym is currently trying out a kid’s class for six- to 12-year-olds to teach them the benefits of fitness at a young age. In addition, they also have a teen weightlifting class on Mondays to help get children ready for the fall sports season.
