We're now the first Canadian affiliate with Catalyst Athletics!
Catalyst Athletics is a USA Weightlifting National Champion team and is the world's largest source of educational material for Olympic weightlifting.
We are proud to join them in the pursuit to help the growth of the sport of Weightlifting and improve the quality of lifting and coaching.
From the beginning, the CrossFit movement has provided an alternative to the prevailing commercial gym establishment and its signature "big-box," machine-based, bodybuilding approach to fitness.
We promoted the ethic and aesthetic of the garage gym in large part to provide a home and refuge for our more athletic programming, which couldn't find quarter in the commercial gyms. CrossFit is not a franchise and never will be. As an affiliate we constitute a confederation of legitimate fitness practitioners united around constantly varied, intense, functional exercise and pooling reliable resources under the CrossFit name.
Today, with over 13,000 affiliates worldwide, we see ourselves as part of a larger war between the methods, outcomes, and principles of big-box franchises such as the Gold's, Bally's, and GoodLife Fitness and those of our small-box facilities.
CrossFit affiliation is an Internet-based, grassroots movement started by CrossFitters who wanted their own local CrossFit-equipped gyms, trainers, and communities. It has become a call to all who really care about fitness to get the car out of the garage, pick up some dumbbells, a barbell, a few plates, a pull-up bar, and some rings, and try the Workout of the Day. Inviting a friend to participate compounds the experience.
