Keeping the Crew Safe
We, at CrossFit Calgary take the health and well being of our members to heart. In response to COVID we have put in place some health and safety procedures for our re-opening on June 12.
Please take the time to read and review what we are doing to keep the Crew safe when WODing by visiting our COVID Response webpage here.
All classes now require pre-registration ONLINE. Click here to sign up for classes.
We are happy to relaunch our teens classes!
Classes start Tuesday, June 23 and pre-registration is happening now!
Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:30-5:30pm
Sundays from 11:30 – 12:30pm
UPDATE: as of Friday, November 13 until Friday, November 27 (inclusively) all in person teen classes have been cancelled due to the mandated “Circuit Breaker” closure issued by the Alberta government. Announced on Tues. Nov. 24, this closure was extended until December 15, 2020. All teens with active memberships will have access to our virtual classes during this time. Please see your inbox for an email with more information.
COVID CIRCUIT BREAKER CLOSURE
Despite the amazing efforts of our community to keep us all safely WODing in person and keeping COVID out of our box, sadly we must adhere to the “Circuit Breaker Closure”.
As announced Tuesday, December 8 at 4pm, by Premier Jason Kenney, all gyms and studios are mandated to close temporarily as of Sunday, December 13 for a minimum of 4 weeks in efforts to curb the rising number of positive COVID-19 cases.
CFC has paused in-person classes since November 27 and has been offering virtual classes in efforts to keep our membership moving safely together. All current active members are asked to join our private Facebook group, “Foster Community with CrossFit Calgary” for more details on class schedules and joining in on the classes.
Again, we thank each of our members who have worked so hard at staying healthy and keeping our community members healthy. We look forward to keeping you moving and engaged in fitness throughout this pandemic. See you on the screen Crew!
This Week At A Glance. January 25, 2021 - January 31, 2021
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. ”
“ CrossFit and CFC have not just made me more physically fit, they have improved my mental and emotional fitness as well. CrossFit is my therapy. It's the insanity that keeps me sane. ”
