Surf Ready Fitness (SRF) formerly known as Extreme Athletics is a gym for surfers. Plain and simple! Open since 2012, we cater to surfers, weekend warriors, moms, dads, groms and anyone that wants to improve their fitness. We're currently operating out of a 2400 sqft warehouse about 1 mile from the beach, located in Costa Mesa. Our coaching staff is made up of surfers and athletes who posses their degree in Exercise Science as well as multiple training certifications. 

Our gym is not a typical gym though! You won't see machines lining the walls or a plethora of treadmills stacked in front of TV's. We have an open floor concept where we utilize Indo Boards and Bosus as well as TRX Suspension Trainers, bands, stability balls, medicine balls,  Kettlebells and light dumbbells. We focus on functional power and strength with stability and correct movement being the overall goal.

We pride ourselves on giving the best workout possible and strive to make sure your form is perfect! Our workouts are fun and we focus on the things that will help you move better, pain free. SRF has been featured in Sports Illustrated, ESPN, Men's Fitness Magazine and was also voted Top 7 gyms in OC by LOCALE Magazine. 



The SRF coaching staff has over 20 years experience working with athletes and we are surfers ourselves. We love working with our clients and seeing them excel in the gym and in the water
