I went all the way to Laguna Beach to have a flex-off with the man, the myth, the legend: Jason Khalipa. He is a CrossFit Games champion, gym owner, family man and all-around great human, and I could not have had more fun touring his space and working out with him.
If you know anything about CrossFit, odds are you have heard of Jason Khalipa. He won the 2008 CrossFit Games, received the Spirit of the Games Award in 2009, and was on Team USA at the CrossFit Invitational multiple years.
Or, maybe you just know his name for his legendary rowing, lifting, and biceps.
Either way, I was stoked to finally meet him in person and tour his home gym. I love the amount of space he has for movement–and he has some pretty cool equipment, too!
While I was there, we talked about Jason’s fitness program, NCFIT, which is offered in person but also via an app. The app offers a number of different options for workouts, ranging from bodyweight tracks to competitive workout programming.
I personally got a taste of what it’s like to use the app (check out the video) and I can say: It’s awesome!
If you use the code “GARAGE,” you get a seven-day free trial and 15% off your subscription!
The NCFIT app is a tool you can use for at-home workout programming. With it, you can choose from on-demand classes and daily workouts, as well as get access to an extensive library of exercises. There are four workout tracks to choose from:
NCMETCON is high intensity interval training that combines aspects of fitness like conditioning, weightlifting and gymnastics.
NCGO is strength and conditioning work that combines traditional strength training with a metcon.
NCX is a track that uses dumbbells and bodyweight movements.
NCCOMP is a “competitors’ track” meant for people who want to compete.
Jason Khalipa, CrossFit Games champion and elite athlete, designed NCFIT programming with the intention of helping people build healthy lifestyles. Every class via NCFIT is led by a top-level coach with years of experience in the field. Anyone at any fitness level can work with NCFIT.
The app is available for both iOS and Android devices.

Workout shoes are an important piece of gear that most invest in for theirhome gym. Unless you’re one of those barefoot folks (which I am often as well).
