CFC Land Acknowledgement and Support Links


In the spirit of respect, reciprocity and truth, CrossFit Calgary honours and acknowledges Moh’kinsstis, and the traditional Treaty 7 territory and oral practices of the Blackfoot confederacy: Siksika, Kainai, Piikani, as well as the Îyâxe Nakoda and Tsuut’ina nations. We acknowledge that this territory is home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3 within the historical Northwest Métis homeland. Finally, we acknowledge all Nations – Indigenous and non – who live, work and play on this land, and who honour and celebrate this territory.

This sacred gathering place provides us with an opportunity to engage in and demonstrate leadership on reconciliation. Thank you for your enthusiasm and commitment to join our crew on the lands of Treaty 7 territory.

Following the tragic and shocking discovery of the remains of 215 children found at the former location of a Kamloops residential school, we would like to share how we as citizens can support our indigenous communities and learn more about Canada’s history.

The following are some links and ways we can do that:

The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation

Long before the horrifying discovery in Kamloops, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission called upon the Canadian government to provide funding to locate the children who died in residential schools. This call to action was published in 2015.

Read the calls to action here.

Native Land

A good place to start educating yourself is finding out more about the land we now call Canada. There is an app that non-Indigenous Canadians can use to see whose territorial land they are on. They can use the interactive map to look up territoria, languages and treaties. Find out more about where you live here.

Indigenous Canada

The University of Alberta offers a free online 12-module course on Indigenous history and contemporary issues. The University says thousands of people enrolled when Canadian actor Dan Levy participated in 2020. The popular course, launched in 2017, is available online. Students can register here.

Keeping the CFC Crew Safe


We, at CrossFit Calgary have the health and well being of our members in mind at all times, especially now during the COVID pandemic. We are so happy and proud to be re-opened and want to ensure that we remain open to be able to serve our community in the areas of health and fitness.

As such, we have initiated a number of procedures and safety measures issued by AHS to keep everyone healthy and happy while they WOD with us. Below is a description of those procedures and measures:

Class registration –  We have reduced class times and maximum number of participants to in adherence to the current AHS restrictions. As such, we will need you to reserve you class spot online before attending by logging into your account with us. Using your email address as your username and by creating a password you can reserve a spot in your choice of class up to 30 minutes before the class start time. If you can no longer attend a class we kindly ask that you cancel your spot so someone else may take it. You can cancel up to 1 hour before class start time. We strongly encourage our members to attend the same class times throughout the weeks to adhere to the “cohort” model.



On Wednesday, July 22, 2020 City of Calgary mayor, Nenshi announced the city would be mandating the use of personal masks in all indoor public spaces as of August 1. There are some exemptions to this bylaw which includes those who are engaged in fitness. Participants engaging in fitness are not required to wear masks as they’re a health risk in this setting. Starting Saturday, August 1, every person entering the gym will need to have a mask on up until the point of starting the warm up. Masks can then be taken off but kept within each participant’s bubble during the workout. Once the WOD is done, the mask must again be put on. Then equipment sanitizing and placement back in their proper storage can be completed. Coaches will have masks on for the duration of the class except for during the technical instruction and demonstration phase. Once the workout commences, coaches will put their masks back on to walk about and offer corrections and coaching cues.


Firstly, if you have any symptoms or are feeling unwell, please stay home. Here is a link to the guidelines on symptoms. https://www.alberta.ca/covid-19-testing-in-alberta.aspx

We will need you to arrive no earlier than 10 minutes prior to class start times.

Personal Cubbies

Please place all bags and personal belongings in the cubbies provided and use the coat rack for coats/sweaters, etc. We want to keep the floor space free from clutter as this poses a tripping/collision risk.

Sanitizing Equipment

We have antiviral spray bottles and cloths available to spray down each piece of equipment after use. Please take a bottle and a cloth with you as you enter the lobby and place the used cloth in the soiled laundry bin after use. Spray bottles should be wiped down before returning to it’s home.


Please bring any accessories you wish to use such as chalk. If you have them, we encourage you to bring your own skipping rope, bands, lacrosse balls, etc. wherever possible. It limits the amount of contact. We cannot have any chalk bins on the floor so if you’d like to use it, please bring your own. We’re sorry to report that AHS does not allow shower use at this time. You’ll have to come ready to WOD and shower back at home. We also will have no note pads or pens available for use. Again, make sure to stock your gym bag if you want to keep score of your WOD.

Please be assured that all touchable surfaces (especially the bathrooms) will be sanitized before each class.

If you have attended a class and develop symptoms please immediately self isolate and get a test. Please notify us via email of any symptoms and when you receive your results so that we may take precautionary measures.
