Extended Membership at Raincity Athletics

This has been an ongoing conversation and program in the works for a while. Though the membership option is not ready for full launch, here’s what you can expect to be made available sometime in June! 
Contact Coach Thor with any questions, comments, or feedback!

Extended membership

Who is it for?

This membership is open to anyone who has completed 100 classes or more at Raincity Athletics (or with special permissions) and is looking for a little more…
  • More programming (additional skill work + Olympic lifting)
  • more time (extended open gym hours during the week)
  • more access (midday access when available).

Please note: There are no additional ‘coached’ classes, just additional work to do, and time slots to do it.

OR If you work odd hours and are just looking for some extra time to come in, make up a wod, or do a couple extra bicep curls/good mornings!

What it is

Extended Open Gym:
  • 6-10am Monday + Wednesday
  • 8-930pm Tues + Thursday
Additional Programming:
  • Additional barbell and skill work Tuesdays.
  • Additional ‘comp’ wods on Thursday.

Extended Access

You’ll get access to all of the coaches via a private group. At any (reasonable) time you may check gym availability and if a coach is there.
“Hey, I’d like to come in and make up some squats around 2pm, will somebody be there?”
“I’m hoping to come in early before the nooner/8am/… and make up some _____, will somebody be there?”

Who It’s For

The additional access and open gym times are for anyone who is experienced enough to ‘take care of themselves’ and the equipment. This is why we have a 100 class minimum to access the membership – we want to know that you’re adequately trained in all the necesary movements, and that you’ll be respectful of the rules, space, and equipment. A coach will always be ‘in the studio’ with you, but they will not likely be paying attention to you or what you’re doing (unless necessary).
The additional programming is for those who are training consistently 5+ x a week already. You foam roll, mobilize, and take care of your owies at night. You keep an eye on the raincityathletics.ca/comp page in case something interesting comes along. And you are preparing to compete in the sport of fitness.

What it costs

On launch this membership will be an additional $30/month with a minimum 3 month commitment – or pay up front for 3 months and save 15%.
The price will be assessed and adjusted if/when needed, though as long as you don’t cancel you will always get a grandfathered rate.
Details on cancellation, pauses, etc. will be released with the membership in June.

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.”
