Incredible CrossFit gym. A+ Coaching, programming, equipment and on top of all that an extremely warm, friendly and "passionate about life" community. If you love fitness you feel right at home at Raincity Athletics.
One of my favorite places in Vancouver. I've been signed up a month and have loved every minute of it! I am a total newb in regards to CrossFit and they are teaching me all there is to know! These guys are the ones to choose if you've always wanted to try CrossFit and have been too intimidated. They are kind, open and more than happy to share their wealth of knowledge.
I know I'm speaking for all of the members when I say Raincity changed my life. I've never met such a wide variety of incredibly supportive individuals. Regardless of your fitness level, there's always an appropriate modification and the coaches are extremely helpful/informative. I couldn't ask for a better experience.
The coaches & members rid you of the fear that crossfit is "too hard" and they lift you up with all the skill and support you would need to push through the darkest moments in a workout. I'm so incredibly pleased with the staff, facility and members at RainCity Athletics! Thanks guys for making the gym my 2nd home! <3
The Coaches at Raincity Athletics know their stuff, they know how to push you while still ensuring safe movement.
The scariest thing about joining Crossfit for me was always the fear of inadequacy and not keeping up to the rest of the class - but that is never a worry at Raincity. Every member is different in their ability and strong in their own ways - you will get better and every single person there is routing for your success.
Simon, James (1.0), Alexi and Mike are extraordinary coaches and make you feel like you can conquer the world.
I've trained at a lot of CrossFit gyms and I've never seen such a positive, inspiring, and awesome group of athletes as at Raincity Athletics.
