We've been up and running for about a month now. The response so far has been great!

We're located in Barrie and have had some friends from places such as Orillia drop by for a workout as well as others in the Simcoe County area.

We look forward to seeing more CrossFitters in the days to come!

Go Ontario. Congrats Matt. Will be joining you as an Ontario affiliate soon. In the process of sourcing insurance. Matt how many square feet are you working with?

Michael: Thanks! Currently we're operating with a fully equipped 300 sqft indoor and several outdoor parks. We've conducted a number of outdoor group sessions (great weather!) with positive results. With our "wonderful" winters, our indoor facility is arranged to facilitate small groups with minimal (if any!) issues.

Nice Matt, Unfortunatly I have a karate club that will also be moving so i need a bigger space. A landlord offered me 1000 sq feet for 700. Great deal until he tells me its unheated. We are doing our first "free all ages community workout" in the park this saturday. Will be a blast.
One of my potential insurers brought up the issue of how much liability CrossFit wants me to have for them as a co insured. Do you mind me asking how much you have?
