We are so excited about today's news. 306 is rolling out the " 306 Path to the Podium" program effective . The program, as the name implies, is designed specifically to help athletes prepare for competitions. However, it could be suitable for anyone striving for a higher level of strength and conditioning. The program will be implemented in 8 week blocks, focusing on several local and national Crossfit events. The first block coincides with the upcoming BCBD, the Granite Games and the 306 3 on 3 Throwdown.
The program brings together the expertise of the following three individuals:
- CF Games Regional Champion Jason Cain,
- Powerlifting National Bronze Medallist Marc Morris,
- National Olympic Lifting Bronze Medallist Richard Gonsalves
The program will include an individualized strength program created by Marc, an Olympic lifting program created by Richard, all integrated within your CF program designed and overseen by Jason.
As well your program will also include two monthly small group Oly trainings sessions with Richard.
The cost of this individualized programming is 75$ in addition to your current 306 membership.

As expressed yesterday we will be releasing exciting new changes this week. Yesterday we spoke on the referral program and our addition, today we are thrilled to annouce that we are partnering with Bourassa and Associates Physical Rehabilitation clinic to have onsite physiotherapy at 306. Mackenzie Fast will now be extending his services to the 306 family complementing our onsite massage therapy service and our onsite nutrional counselling to provide 306 members a one stop shop to improve their health. Please read below a word from Mackenzie.
I am a Physical Therapist working for Bourassa and Associates and we are pleased to open up a satellite clinic here at 306!
I graduated from the University of Saskatchewan with a Masters of Physical Therapy and BSc(Kin) in 2010 and have been an Associate of Bourassa and Associates since 2011. I have been practising in orthopaedics since graduating.
I have been a 306 member since 2012 and I am excited to help those with chronic or acute onset injuries. It is my desire that my clinical professional experience and my involvement at 306 can lead to an integrated rehabilitation plan for the 306 membership. In addition to members, the clinic will also be open to public and primary insured clients seeking assistance with injury rehabilitation on a fee for service basis.
My sport background includes provincial level soccer and university level track and field. I am hoping to use this experience as well as my clinical knowledge to help our 306 athletes achieve their athletic goals and rehabilitate their injuries.
