Which side of the bay?

East bay:

California Strength (Glenn Pendlay and team)
Ice Chamber is legit
Crossfit Oakland has some good people
Crossfit OneWorld I've heard good things about

SF:
Crossfit SF has KStarr (though he seems to be travelling 'round the world filming himself these days)
Jim Schmitz trains folks in South SF

South Bay:

Catalyst Athletics, of course.
Also, Dan John does workouts at Coyote Pt.

You might want to see a good ND and get that inflammation issue sorted out first.

Darius -

We're in Sunnyvale and do everything from weightlifting to fitness classes to personal training. Slow and mindful describes our intro fitness class; our business model doesn't include trying to impress people with how badly we can hurt them.
