Reebok CrossFit 306 is thrilled to partner with the Bike Doctor and other corporate sponsors to bring you the #BeLikeBruce Fitness Festival.  This fitness festival will be like nothing we have seen in Saskatoon.  For the first time ever we will be combining CrossFit and Triathlon in honour of the late Bruce Gordon.

The workout is 12 rounds for time with a 12 minute time cap of 12 deadlifts, 9 hang cleans, and 6 jerks.  The weight is 155/105 for the RX division men's/ladies and 95/65 pounds for the scaled division.

Only one athlete can be working at a time.  Athletes can switch anytime they wish, with a simple tag in and out.  The athletes do not need to maintain a specific rotation.  If they wish, however not recommended, the athletes can have one completely sit out.  Any strategy to maximize the speed of which they complete their 12 rounds is recommended.

Every-Second-Count-Graphic.jpg
Every Second Counts”, a phrase that people have used for many years. It can be used for many of life’s challenges. Bruce used it as a term of encouragement, particularly when giving his pep talks before races to us.

Bruce was a huge supporter of ours and we will never forget these words of encouragement. To honour Bruce and to always have his words with us, I asked him to write this phrase for me this past summer. I then took this to a tattoo artist in Penticton and had it permanently inked on my arm along with a bike....since Bruce’s other favourite phrase to say was “it’s all about the bike!
— Kaycee and Hunter Schroeder
