We invite you to join our team and become part of a camaraderie and support system no other gym can offer.
What is CrossFit?
CrossFit is an extremely efficient and effective way to get into world-class shape. Our workouts consist of constantly varied, functional movements (like pushing, pulling, squatting, lifting, running) executed at high intensity in a group setting.
In short, a fun, friendly, high-intensity boot camp…with weights!
How are we different?
At CrossFit Kitsilano, we challenge you to use your brain as well as your muscles. We require you to challenge yourself on a daily basis, and master new things you have never thought you could do. Being focused and present is a must while learning how to move your body with proper mechanics, stability, balance and agility.
At CrossFit Kitsilano, you will not find rows of stationary bikes and weight machines. Instead you will find pull-up bars, kettlebells, barbells and wide open space for squatting, running, jumping, climbing, lifting and throwing – moving your body the way it is meant to be moved. It means that all your workouts will be comprised of exercises that mimic movements performed in day-to-day life or sport. You would never bicep curl your child to pick them up, so why would you do it in the gym? We focus on improving functional movements that are necessary and common in your daily activities.
It also means that you will never get bored. With our constantly varied programming you will rarely do the same workout twice in any given year. You will never have to program your own workouts or spend hours in the gym. Instead, each day a workout will be provided for you that is scalable to suit your fitness level. And because our workouts are rarely longer than 40 minutes they can fit into even the busiest schedules.
Next to deciding to marry my wife, joining CFKis one of the best decisions of my life. I feel a hundred times better and more in shape than I did throughout 8 years of practicing martial arts.
