About Dogtown Athletic


About Dogtown Athletic

We at Dogtown Athletic want to provide the most innovative training facility in the Bay Area. Housed in a 10,000 square foot warehouse style building in West Oakland, sandwiched between the MacArthur and West Oakland Bart stations, we are able to custom tailor a fitness program that matches our members’ goals. Whether you are interested in functional fitness, HIIT, Boxing, Speed & Agility, or personal training, we have the program for you. Our goal is to bring out the athlete in you and create a fit-minded individual. Whether you are already a professional athlete, or have never worked out before, we can match your goals with our trainers. All we want is for you to want a healthy lifestyle. Show us that commitment, and you will see results. Although we are no longer affiliated with CrossFit, we offer the same functional fitness training. We just call ours MetCon for metabolic conditioning. It incorporates all of the variety of movements that contribute to a highly efficient workout using basic techniques, such as pushing & pulling, squatting & jumping, lifting & throwing. Our equipment is brand new and carefully selected by our trainers and partners. It is all here, waiting for you.

Mission Statement

Be Athletic

That is our Mission at Dogtown Athletic. It does not mean we only want "athletes" at our facility - it means that we believe everyone is an athlete and everyone, everyday, can be athletic. Move, dance, lift weights, sing, meditate. It is all athletic in its own way and we want to create a community of members that will embrace this idea of athleticism and fitness as much as we do.

Fitness isn't a privilege. It is a lifestyle. And we want to ensure that our facility is open and welcoming to all people, young and old, small and large, weak or strong, who just want to be better, be fitter, be athletic.

But not just athletic... Dogtown Athletic.


Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Can I be a member month to month?

    • If you are a member of the Founders Circle, we thank you for being one of the first one hundred members to grow our community. As such we have locked your special rate for the lifetime of your continuous membership.
    • Your special rate will be forfeited if you have a break in membership. If there is a break, your membership will be resumed at the current market rate. (Of course you are more than welcomed to speak with us, if you have special circumstances) 
  • What is your open gym policy?

    • If there is a class being conducted while you are working out independently, the class takes priority over the area and equipment. As a courtesy, please conduct your training in an area which does not interfere with classes.

    • Drop-in’s can only be used twice a month by the same person.
    • You can purchase a 10 pack of drop-in sessions for $180.00 saving you $20.00.
