Extended Membership Has Launched

Checkout all the details & signup here: www.raincityathletics.ca/extended 
The extended membership is open to anyone who has completed minimum 100 CrossFit Classes. It does NOT get you any additional ‘coached’ classes (regular members aren’t missing anything) but it DOES get you additional open gym time, additional skill + barbell programming, and additional daytime access.

Please note: If you are one of those people that likes to come in early or stay late to do additional squats, deads, etc. you will be required to be on the extended membership to do that.

The Canadian Affiliate League Summer Season!

The canadian affiliate league has always been a GREAT time for RAthletes!
Checkout 5 reasons you should take part here.

It looks like we’ve got 2 teams forming one higher level Rx and one lower level Rx. We could definitely do a scaled team as well for those interested!
A spreadsheet will be posted tomorrow with those interested so we can start building teams!
All you need to know (if you’re interested) is your 1RM Back Squat + Snatch, 2km Row + Fran times!

Beat The Old Guy E1 Throwdown

James 2.0 threw down against some of our animals this Saturday in the heat (perfect practice for cali). It accomplished everything that was hoped for in that he (and everyone) got pushed WELL outside of their usual comfort zones. They did a little escalating barbell ladder followed by a brutal 30min chipper that opened with a mile run in the heat. Huge shout out to everyone who came out and threw down against 2.0 to help support him and his training. We’ll be posting the details of the next one shortly keep your eyes on the events page to register.

So Much Going On!

There’s a lot of cool things coming down the pipeline at Raincity this summer, checkout the events page for just a couple: raincityathletics.ca/events
Or just keep the rathlete page bookmarked: raincityathletics.ca/rathlete

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.”
