Our community is at the heart of what we do. Our mission is to provide functional workouts for people of all ages and abilities, with the goal of increasing all aspects of fitness and improving the overall quality of life. We train hard and push ourselves beyond all imagined limits. With this, we build relationships with those around us and develop a strong community.
The challenges I faced were mine and mine alone. It was uncomfortable and sometimes isolating. You suffer in silence when you can’t speak of these things with your friends or family. The shame eats you alive. Everyone endures some level of familial expectations and when you can’t meet them, it sucks.
Fitness and sport have forever been a large part of my life. CrossFit, in particular, has had an enormous impact on both my physical and more importantly mental health- it's so much more to me than just a fitness routine which I'm very grateful for.
One of my biggest challenges is learning to love and accept who I am and learning that there has never been anything wrong with me for having love in my heart.
…But from the moment I walked through the door and was greeted with a smile, a warm welcome and seeing the pride flag hanging in the gym I knew it would be alright. I love that it doesn’t matter who you are, your gender, background, sexuality, the age we are all athletes who support and encourage each other
When I first came out, now 17 years ago, I was definitely afraid to tell anyone. It now isn’t even something that I think about having to tell someone most of the time. The laws in Canada have also changed a lot since I first came out. We can now marry whoever we want, which is a huge challenge our whole community has overcome.
I’ve never been successful at working out or getting results until I started at AuxCF. It’s not just fitness that’s changed my life – it’s also this amazing community!
Auxiliary has been a blessing and is now the next step in my fitness journey. You guys have been extremely welcoming and I genuinely enjoy coming to the gym every day, but I will hate doing burpees till the day I die.
It’s hard to be comfortable and confident in yourself when you’ve lived the majority of your life as someone you aren’t.
The Barbell Club will be a time where members meet and train together to work on Olympic weightlifting or powerlifting; both of which are awesome sports of their own.
The main goal of Auxiliary CrossFit is to create the happiest hour of your day.
