We are really excited to announce that starting this week Chris Schaalo will be joining our coaching crew to help with regular classes, private sessions and sports team specific work.  Many of you will recognize and know him from his role with Jesse and Dave Kitchen in the West Coast Triple Crown team.  He is bringing to our gym long term experience in coaching from CrossFit Taranis and CrossFit North Van (where he still currently coaches as well).  His niche disciplines are Olympic Lifting and Kettlebell making him a huge asset to our team.  He’s also just a really chilled out rad guy who’s easy to be around 🙂

Starting this week we have shuffled the schedule of coaches around a bit and Chris will be coaching Wednesday regular classes.  He knows our gym well but please make him feel at home in our community!
