I had a great time dropping in for open gym two times while I was in town. I was able to get my weightlifting workouts in on one of the 2 platforms available in the open gym area. The gym was well equipped and everyone was friendly and helpful when I had questions about equipment. I especially enjoyed being surrounded by so many focused and happy athletes.


Today is my 1 year at Bear. It has been a phenomenal experience with the coaches & members. One of the owners, OJ, got me warmed up to the friendly culture at the box. The programming has been spectacular and my gains in the past year have been substantial thanks to the coaches. The friends I've made at this gym already have become the people I look forward to seeing every evening. Special shoutout to Coach Helen & Amy who do the usual weightlifting classes! I'm looking forward to continuing my fitness journey at Bear.


My favorite SD drop in!! Big gym with all the equipment and amenities! Super friendly staff and members! Great programming!! I absolutely love dropping in here whenever I’m in town!

My wife and I dropped into Bear Republic CF gym and we were greeted by a friendly and welcoming staff. We were there for the CrossFit Open too and needed to get our score up for 23.2 and they were happy to count for us. A super awesome box and highly recommend.


Staff and other clients were welcoming. It was a partner wod that day, and people talked to me/invited me to be their partner without the coach stepping in and assigning partners or telling someone to partner with the random drop in, which I really appreciated. Coach was attentive and supportive of the whole class without being over the top. Would drop in here again.


I travel work quite a bit and the OJ and team at Bear Republic have provided the best experience, of ANY gym I have dropped into. I have dropped in several different occasions when in town and OJ has been welcoming to anyone visiting his gym. His coaches are also very knowledgeable and run great classes. Bear Republic is a must for any athlete visiting San Diego.


In town for business and had a great experience as a drop in! Awesome location near the convention center. Friendly staff and a great group cross fitters in 6am class. Will definitely be back!


Great CrossFit gym for drop-ins! This place is huge! Great coaches too for WoDs, or open gym (separate from with rig and oly platforms).
