There’s a lot going on this weekend at Raincity Athletics, here’s a summary/timeline/breakdown of what to expect and how you can be a part of it!

9AM Sat – 9AM Sun
CF24 WOD – 24 WODs in 24 Hours for Special Olympics

We’ve got a handful of teams (15 or so RAthletes) taking part in the 24 hour WODathon fundraiser for the special Olympics. In teams of 3 – 6 athletes will complete 1 WOD every hour, for 24 hours, starting at 9AM on Saturday. Details: http://raincityathletics.ca/cf24/

Schedule Changes:

The regular Saturday morning schedule will be adapted around these WODs. All of the WODs can be found HERE

These are short (10 minute) WODs that will be performed on the hour. You’re welcome to join us at ANY time for any of these WODs, but to replace the regular Sat AM Classes we will run 1hr classes (with programmed barbell work before the CF24 WOD and ending with the appropriate hours WOD) at 9:15 / 10:15 / 11:15 / 12:15 – register in Zen Planner. 

Outside of those times you’re welcome to join us ANY other hour! We could use the support!

Please note: There will be no option to perform anything OTHER than the CF24 WODs. Please do not plan to come lift during breaks in between as athletes participating will need down time / silence / sleep, etc.

4PM Saturday
Sarah and Jimmy’s Baby Shower

This event will be running alongside the CF24 event! Come celebrate new life and also support those who will be doing WODs on the hour during. 

We would like to cordially invite our Raincity RAthletes (boys and girls) to the Celebration Of Baby Dubs. This will be more of a friendly gathering to congratulate one of our favorite couples Jimmy & Sarah Whyte on having a little bundle of love. No cheesy baby shower games. It will be potluck style and BYOB if you so choose to have a celebration drink.

If you would like to pick up something small to help out in the smooth transition to parenthood they do have two gift registries. They received lots of clothing and books to date but not much if the essential baby things most of us childless people would never think of.

Gift Registry: LUSSO BABY & TJ KIDS (if you google either and follow the baby registry links you can enter either of their names and the registry pops up!)

If there are any questions please msg Panda, Melissa Cook or Misch.

Food : Potluck syle – a thread will be started for people to post what they are bringing.
* dishes will be marked with Paleo or Non-Paleo signs as not to confuse our Rathletes who are currently doing a fabulous job with their paleo challenge

9:30 & 11AM SUNDAY
Olympic Lifting & Team WOD

The final CF24 WOD is at 9am Saturday. Athletes who did not just complete 24 workouts may attend Sunday morning classes as usual, coached by Coach Alexi.

We encourage you to come in for 9am to cheer on the athletes as they all complete Fran on the 24th hour. 

Gymnastics Class

If you have registered for the ‘beginners’ gymnastics class be ready to go for 12:30PM. Details or register (there’s still some space) here: http://raincityathletics.ca/gymnastics-seminars-at-raincity-athletics/

Advanced Gymnastics Seminar

The Advanced Gymnastics class is at 2:30pm. Please be ready to go by then if you are registered, or signup online (there’s still some space) here: http://raincityathletics.ca/gymnastics-seminars-at-raincity-athletics/

There is NO Open Gym Sunday Afternoon.


Yoga will be running as usual at 5:30PM on Sunday. Please remember this is the END of the week, not the beginning of the new week (for those on 3x a week) so it’s a great chance to use that last session if you only made it in 2x. Also for the competitors or those who are feeling serious aches and pains we highly recommend regular attendance to the Yoga sessions! Erin can tailor sessions specific to the athletes needs based on the week of training we’ve done! #mobility

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.”
