10 Keys to our World Class CrossFit training facility

1. Adequate Square Footage: Our 10,000 square foot facility easily handles classes of up to 30 students, all the while leaving enough space for two or three apprentice coaches to run one-on-one personal training sessions on the other side of the facility. 2. High Ceilings: Our fifteen-foot ceilings give our facility a more spacious look, and they also accommodate a very important CrossFit movement – Rope Climbs. 3. Drop Weights: With wall-to-wall rubber flooring, you can drop weights absolutely anywhere on our floor. 4. Bay Doors: Our bay doors allow for all-important air circulation keeping our venue cool and smelling clean. Bay doors also make running WODs, where athletes have to enter and exit the building multiple times, much safer and more manageable. 5. Natural Light: Nobody wants to train in a facility that feels like a dungeon. We have tons of windows and natural light, which keeps our facility bright. 6. Enough free Parking: We have endless parking on both East 3rd and East 4th Avenues, the two streets on either side of our facility. 7. Run on the street: We’re located in a quiet, residential area of the East Vancouver, where the streets are relatively empty and flat. We have marked courses for our 400 m, 800 m, one mile and five kilometer routes, which begin and end at our bay doors. Hallowe'en Party, 2010 8. Lounge: We’re just as much a social house as we are a training facility and school. We have a bar and lounge upstairs where we watch hockey games, football games, and host other social gatherings, like our infamous Hallowe'en party. Our social events are the glue that holds our community together. 9. Functional, clean, classy shower facilities: Nice washrooms are especially important for our morning CrossFitters, who usually have to head straight to work after their morning workout and don’t have time to head home again for a shower. Since we renovated our washrooms in the spring of 2011, the 6 am and 7 am classes have become much happier. 10. Massage and Stretch Therapy: We’ve learned that rest and recovery is as important as CrossFit training. To accommodate this, Giselle Nagy with Cocoon Wellness offers one-on-one stretch therapy and massage therapy sessions in a private room tucked away in the corner. 11. Pro Shop: Origin Athletics is located right in our facility. From shoes to compression gear, to vitamins, fish oil and other important supplements, Origin Athletics is your one-stop Pro Shop for anything that helps with health and performance.
