We distribute CrossFit in both group and individual style coaching as options in all the stages or our programming. If you are new to CrossFit training, you must start by doing a CrossFit Intro Session and then go through our foundation training called Phase 1. After you complete the foundation training in Phase 1, you become a Phase 2 athlete and are welcome to join our regularly scheduled CrossFit WOD Sessions. If you have a CrossFit background we will ask you to complete a private CrossFit Evaluation.
To book an Intro Session or Evaluation simply email and let us know you are interested!
Crossfit has taken the fitness world by storm and has a massive following globally! We clearly see that 2 different branches of CrossFit have formed, GPP CrossFit and Competitive CrossFit. We have programs for both types of training goals but it is so important to us that you understand the difference between them.
TRAINING FOR GPP VS TRAINING FOR CROSSFIT COMPETITION:
In our large and varied community, most people are doing CrossFit for the purpose of life long fitness or as we call it, GPP (general physical preparedness). When considering GPP, we offer a broad, general, and inclusive strength and conditioning program. GPP is the foundation of fitness for any Game, Mission or Life needs. By having our athletes focusing on perfecting their movement patterns, consider their personal rep schemes, WOD duration and recovery needs we consistently see evolution in fitness and performance in all our athletes across the board. We scale load and intensity; we don't change programs to get after our GPP. Healthier human beings walking this planet and looking sexy in their jeans as a bonus… who can argue with that?
If you have not heard about the Reebok CrossFit Games, you will shortly after walking through our doors. The CrossFit Games are a part of our legacy and our brand. When it comes to competition, we are arguably the most successful CrossFit Gym in Western Canada. We are the only Canadian Team to have won a medal at the CrossFit Games and have the highest-ranking Individual athlete finish, 10th place, yet to be matched by another Canada West athlete. What does all that mean? We are a competitive gym. We have a Competitive Development Program. We have top level CrossFit Athletes. The YouTube videos most often shown of CrossFit Competitions are not a good example of what will be expected of someone walking through the doors for the first time or even the 100th time. Training for CrossFit Competition looks similar to what the majority of our athletes seeking GPP are doing but the time, volume and dedication it takes to be at that competitive level are different. While we certainly have the tools to help you reach your highest competitive potential, we only offer them if you are asking.
We know it can be intimidating at first so we want to help you understand how to toss the intimidation aside and just get started.
Book a CrossFit Intro Session then please read Phase 1: Start and Phase 2: Training.
A CrossFit Intro Session is a 1.5hr session for $25. This session is done privately with a Taranis Coach and is the first session of our Phase 1 Foundation Training. If you continue with the Phase 1 training, your $25 is credited to your Phase 1 payment and your first day of 10 is now complete!
Phase 1 Foundation Training is a series of 10 sessions with an expert Taranis Coach. These sessions teach you the movements we use in CrossFit and allow you to slowly increase your intensity and comfort level in preparation for the transition into Phase 2. Phase 1 Foundation Training is mandatory to join Phase 2. This is for the safety of all athletes, new and experienced.
The Phase 1 Training can take place in two different ways for you.
Individual Phase 1:
Here you work one on one with a CrossFit Coach to complete your 10 days of foundation training.
- One on One learning
- Flexible scheduling to suit your needs
- Personalized injury considerations and planning
- Personalized mobility recommendations
- $525 includes Phase 1 training and remainder of your first month
Group Phase 1:
You will be with a small group of athletes and typically one coach in each session. We cap these classes at 5 people to maintain coach to athlete ratio integrity.
- Make instant friends!
- Variety of coaches teaching the sessions
- Set schedule Mon, Wed, Fri at 7pm starting on the first Mon or Wed of each month. Email for upcoming registration info!
- $225 includes Phase 1 training and remainder your first month
Once you have completed the Phase 1 training, you become a Phase 2 Athlete and are welcome to join our regularly scheduled CrossFit WOD Sessions.
Occasionally we will have an athlete that might need a bit more time to develop in their foundation skills. If this is the case, we will have a very honest chat and come up with a game plan that meets the needs and expectations for both Taranis and the Athlete. There is always a way!
Phase 2 Training is our scheduled group CrossFit Workout of the Day
In our one-hour WOD Sessions, athletes will be lead by our expert coaches through the various stages of the hour:

Our Group CrossFit and Competitor Development Programs are designed to meet the needs and goals of our varied community, however significant gains can usually be made faster through Private Coaching. At every stage of our athletic development, we learn, evolve and are ready to learn some more. This is why we encourage athletes to invest in their continued progression by booking private coaching. The individual attention gives a coach the chance to fine tune your lifts or movement patterns, ask deeper questions about your training and customize the cues, the homework and techniques to best suit you. It is an amazingly effective way to find your limits and blow past them!
A private coaching session can be booked based on your schedule with any of our Taranis Coaches. We have a deep pool of knowledge and experience between us all and we love to share that information!
Cost - $65-95 per hour
A CrossFit Lite workout has the same principles as a regular CrossFit class because we believe in them! Constantly varied, high intensity, functional movements.

You can drop your kids off at school and make the morning session for a great sweat and stretch with friends.
Let us give you:
- A Fresh Start and More Energy
- A Strong Sexy Body
- A Community of like Minded People
- Experts Building your Fitness Action Plan
