Growing up I have always been involved in sports. I was an active kid and enjoyed doing something physical. Once I was done with high school and organized sports I decided to get a gym membership.
I began going to the gym but just never really bought into it. I loved the world of health and fitness but was not having fun doing it.
In 2011 a friend of mine told me to come to a local crossfit competiton in Saskatoon. I had never heard of crossfit so I decided to go. After 15 seconds of watching the first event I had already drank the coolaid (metaphorically speaking of course). I thought it was the coolest thing I had ever seen. People were doing handstand pushups, flying around on rings and lifting weights. Not to mention unlike the gym I was currently going to.... people were sweating, giving high fives, laughing and having a fun.
On Feb 2nd, 2012 I went into Reebok Crossfit 306 to meet with Rebecca and Jason as they had just recently open their gym. I stayed and did a workout. Approx 1.5 seconds after the workout was done I was giving them my VISA number.
I continued going for the next couple of weeks non stop. I was more sore than ever but found something I absolutely loved. I also was able to convince my dad Blake Parker to come after he suffered a heart attack on Feb 1, 2012. Jason, Rebecca and the 306 community played a major roll in his recovery, and he is now healthier, stronger and more fit now than he has ever been.
I have now been at 306 for a little over four years and still can't get enough of it. The community Jason and Rebecca have created is unrivaled! The community and atmosphere at 306 keeps me coming back day after day... even though some days I can't walk! For me crossfit is that hour or two a day where where I sweat, laugh and possibly drink a lattė.
I can't honestly say enough good about 306. It is definitely my second home. For those that are new to crossfit, don't think that you won't fit in because you haven't worked out in awhile or don't know any of the movements. 306 has ALL fitness levels, young and old and world class coaching to teach you what to do and how to do it. It's dummy proof.. all you have to do is show up and put in the work.
306 is ONE program, ONE affiliate and ONE Kickass community!
