Almost 12 years ago we hung this homemade sign at our first location on Wyndham and York. It would rain and snow inside and the drain for the entire parking lot was in our floor so the gym routinely flooded. It is where we tuck taped the washroom shut when the landlord decided he was selling the building and was not going to do the inground plumbing repairs we needed.
If this all sounds horrible. It wasn’t. It is where careers were launched, new directions forged, passions developed and first steps taken. It is where we started to learn. It is where CrossFit started in Guelph, the 9th affiliate in Canada. It is where we honed our skills as athletes and trainers and laid the groundwork for a movement that would transcend fitness.
It is not about money, the space, pretty or not, it is about the people. It is about the desire to get better to keep improving and to relentlessly and without exception chase mastery. It is about service, it is about love.
Love you all.
