Exactly a year ago we open our doors to our new expanded facility. It now included a kick ass 1000 square feet weightlifting room to complement our current facility and program. Our goal was to provide an area where people could lift when it was convenient to them outside of our regular CF program. I had ambitions to not only make our athletes stronger but, re-invest in the sport of Weightlifting and Powerlifting and produce some national calibre lifters. That’s exactly what happened. Here are some of the outstanding results that were produced by our Elite Weightlifting Club in its first year.
- 306 now holds 12 national and provincial records
- 2 athletes made national qualifying totals
- 9 athletes qualified for nationals
- 5 athletes took the podium at the national championships
- 2 athletes became Canadian Champions
- 1 athlete became a World Record Holder
All of this was of course only possible, not only with significant financial capital, but the incredible work and dedication of our coaches: Jeff Woo, Marc Morris, and Kent Brown.
Great work everyone and looking forward to another stellar year.

It was a fun filled day at Reebok CrossFit 306 today. We hosted our first ever in-house basketball tournament, with nothing else on the line but bragging rights. The day's first match up featured an exciting contest between Aaron Parker and his teammate Aaron Leblanc versus Coach Woo and his BFF Nick K. Woo and Nick would control the match and take this important win. The rest of the round robin play saw lots of competitive games and a dominant showing by Charlie and Clay as they went on to win their pool with a perfect 4-0 record.
The semi-finals featured two intense matchups. First up, Natalie and Steven who finished second in their pool versus Woo and Nick. Woo and Nick would continue their dominance into the knockout rounds and proved to be too much for Nat and Steven.
The other semi-finals featured the Aaron's versus Pool B winners Clay and Charlie. Charlie and Clay had cruised into the semis. The semi-finals proved to be their first true test. In one of the most tightly contested matches all day, the Aaron's will to win overcame the slick playmaking of Clay and Charlie.
The finals would be a rematch of the day's first game with the same result. Nick’s soft touch around the basket and Woo's uncanny sense for his opponent's weaknesses delivered #WETHE306 second win of the day against the Aaron's and the tournament’s win.
Congrats to all who participated, and thank you for making this such a fun event.
