Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

Although the coaches at Kimura CrossFit all teach the same functional workouts, they each bring different experiences to their craft. For example, founder Eugene has worked under the strength and conditioning coaches of the Oakland Raiders, in addition to playing college baseball. Co-founder Bernabe, on the other hand, has worked as an LE/MIL defensive tactics instructor in the U.S. Coast Guard. The rest of the staff follow with an equally athletic background, which enables them to properly coach members through Olympic weightlifting, gymnastics, and plyometric exercises. They oversee every session, challenging exercisers by tailoring the weights and repetitions, whether the workout involves swinging kettlebells, climbing ropes, or flipping and eating giant tires.
“The staff is friendly and helpful, so don't be afraid to ask questions . Take the fundamentals course seriously. ”
