This is the affiliate finder map. (safe link)

http://map.crossfit.com/

If you put in Mississauga Canada, you'll see there are MANY boxes local, and that's NOT including the 15+ in/around Toronto. Many boxes offer student discounts. The two shown IN Mississauga are here: Links should be safe.

Re: anyone own a crossfit affliate?

I know but even with the student discounts they are still too much :/
I already built my own pull up bar and rings I could also buy weights and stuff but the problem is I want to join a crossfit community where people will push me to my limits and where I will have great coaches who help me with my technique and all the essentials

Unfortunately there's no way to get around the fact that good coaching will cost money...just like tennis lessons or a cooking class or SAT tutoring costs money. You're paying for the time of the person coaching you, and the better they are at coaching the more in-demand (i.e. valuable) their time is.

Re: anyone own a crossfit affliate?

I don't think you are gonna find a lot of freebies out there bud. Wander on in to one of the many boxes near you and ask if there is some work you can do to earn the value of your membership. There are floors that need mopping and bathrooms that need cleaning in every box.

Are you a firefighter, police, or military? I know they give discounts for that. I would also consider bartering if you can offer something that may be beneficial to that box.

Re: anyone own a crossfit affliate?

I know this is a CF board and all. But can I ask why CrossFit?

You are extremely strong for your age and gender (if i'm thinking of you as the correct person). But being strong doesn't automatically make you an awesome CrossFit athlete. I'm not saying you couldn't be, and I'm also not telling you not to try.

But at least consider dedicating yourself to one of the strength sports where you could potentially do very VERY well.
