THE CROSSFIT FORTIS COMMUNITY

We Rise By Lifting Others

It can often be intimidating to walk into a CrossFit box the first time. People and weights are flying around at sometimes breakneck speeds. Everyone seems to know exactly what they’re doing. That intimidation though quickly fades away as you look around and start to sense something different. Those who are done are now cheering on those who are still working. This cheering and encouragement seems to unlock an extra reserve of effort from those finishing up. When everyone is done there are high fives and words of encouragement exchanged as everyone packs up their gear. Then you notice there are pockets of smiling people talking, laughing, exchanging stories all over the gym.

Community. Family. CrossFit.

People from all walks of life, all ages, all fitness levels & abilities, banding together and working towards a common goal. In it together. The bonds, friendships, relationships even families formed within our four walls transcend a “gym”. The BBQ’s, the social activities, the “good stuff” outside the classes are what make us a family. It is a tight-knit Community at it’s most powerful.You just don’t see that anywhere else.

We Grind Together. We Shine Forever.

We’re here to help you get stronger. But strength isn’t measured by how much weight is on your bar. Strength is measured by overcoming your fears, by working on your weaknesses, by helping, encouraging and welcoming your neighbour, by showing up and by setting an example. Strength is measured by what you add to your community. Strength is making sure your form, your attitude and your soul are right. We grind together. We shine forever.

We’ve been owned and operated in Orleans since 2012. In those 5 years we’ve had the pleasure to meet and train hundreds of people young, old and in between in that time and each and every one of them holds a special place in our community, in our hearts and in our memories. We love our community both inside and outside the box.
