Congrats to everyone who completed the CF24. Raincity Athletics raised almost $6,000 for special olympics! More details on the experience coming soon, but until then you can still donate online to any one of the Raincity teams:


Also, for everyone who attended the Gymnastics seminar today we’re going to let you practice some pull ups! Focus on efficient movement and improvement > time/winning today.  If you didn’t attend todays seminar but are interested in joining in the other 2 (it’s a 3 part series) you can still signup online: http://raincityathletics.ca/gymnastics-seminars-at-raincity-athletics/

Today’s WOD


Run / Row / Skip

Alternate between a heavy single (93% of 1RM) and sets of 6 @73%. Add 3% (or 5-10lbs) each set, for total sets (3 each).

This should not be a 1RM, no failing!

Simon is the Head Coach and Owner of Raincity Athletics. “Discovering a new level of health has changed my life, not only in how I look feel and perform, but how I feel about myself both inside and out. I want to help as many people as I can discover their ‘athlete within’ no matter what level that may be, which is why I love our slogan: Find Your Fit. Our bodies are nicer than any car, house, or pet we’ll ever own, and yet we constantly abuse them like we can buy another one if it breaks. I strongly believe if we can maximize our physical health and performance it will have a positive affect on our lives in more ways than anyone can imagine.”
