REP Update: Alberta Health QR code requirement
As part of our Restrictions Exemption Program that we opted into to operate without restrictions we consented to adhering to the mandates the province issued related to proof of COVID vaccination and any updates to the program. Last week the province updated the requirements to a scannable QR code to show proof of vaccination to access the gym.
Effective Monday, November 15 we will no longer be able to accept any paper or scanned copies for proof of vaccination. Rather, the only acceptable form of proof will be the My Health Records QR code. This code takes less than 2 minutes to acquire and can be accessed through the Alberta My Health Records website.
Restrictions Exemption Program
Under the new restrictions announced Wednesday, September 15 by Premier Kenney Alberta we will be implementing the Restrictions Exemption Program as of Sept. 20.
Details of the requirements for this program can be found here.
Effective at 6am on Monday, September 20 for those ages 12 and over proof of vaccination or medical exemption is required prior to attending any classes. Please email us for more information.
We look forward to continue providing you with the best CrossFit experience possible.

High Standards. Happy Members.
“ Approaching my 3rd year anniversary with CrossFit Calgary and just put my 59th birthday in the rear view mirror. The latter is hard to believe considering the changes and results I’ve experienced with the CrossFit Calgary team: 295 lb deadlift for multiple reps; 195 lb bench, again multiple reps, weights I’ve not lifted at any age prior. Also, movements never completed at any age; stable squat snatch, squat clean and, of course, double unders. I value these accomplishments on the CrossFit Journey but prize subtle changes even more; improved posture, increased lean muscle, lowered resting heart rate & BP, reduction in body fat, clothes fit better, significant increase in cardiovascular and muscular endurance...... Changes that enable me to continue outdoor pursuits, not to mention easily manage household chores such as the semi annual change of tires and wheels. I have the opportunity to travel and attend other CrossFit boxes. You and the team you’ve selected create a uniquely focused and supportive environment in which to learn, grow and move ‘the needle’ toward health. Thank you, well done. ”
“ I started CrossFit at the age of 53. I was overweight, out of shape and almost completely debilitated by neck pain. I was also terrified; pretty sure I couldn't do CrossFit. At CrossFit Calgary, I found coaches who are extremely knowledgable and who care enough to help me achieve success safely. I became a member of a community of people who are unconditionally supportive of each other. I have never worked harder or had as much fun doing it. Thank you CFC. ”
“ CrossFit isn't about how much you can lift, how fast you can run or how many burpees you can do. CrossFit is about learning new skills in a professionally coached setting while getting a great workout and CrossFit Calgary does this while consistently fostering a positive community as well as an active and healthy lifestyle. The approachable staff and coaches lead by example and are very knowledgable. I am blown away how every workout is scalable to every fitness level and how everyone gets coaching and the workout they need. ”
“ I joined CrossFit Calgary 3 years ago when I moved to Calgary for my surgical residency. CFC fosters a great sense of community and helps me stay balanced during stressful times. Every single coach is phenomenal, both in attitude and ability. There is strong emphasis on safety and proper body mechanics, which I think is paramount in this sport. CFC is more than a gym, and I am very thankful to be a part of it. ”
