Firepower Training / Milton Crossfit

crossfitshirtonblackfp1Firepower Training in Milton Ontario is home to a fantastic training facility. Tire flips, ring dips or sprints on their indoor turf, you can do it all close to home. Something you never see in a “globo gym” is olympic lifting platforms with bumper plates which are rubber and are meant to be dropped. The name of the game at Firepower and Crossfit is functional movement peformed at high intensity all while being constantly varied. These workouts are not for the feign of heart, but they are all scalable and you have to start somewhere. Every movement has a purpose with human movement and transferable skills in mind. There are no isolating movements at this facility, as there are no isolated movements in real life. Come check it out and give it a shot. Right now they are offering a week free to come and check it out. Give it a shot, you may become incredibly strong, fast, agile, powerful or all of the above.

CrossFit is never going to go away

There may be some people who feel that Crossfit is a fad and that this style of workout is going the way of the dodo bird. We at Ring TrainingHark Events are big fans of crossfit and we’ve given up the cozy confines of a well lit gym playing easy rock or pop which happens to be the most appealing to the masses . We’ve gone from the “globo gym” to work out in a garage that is just above freezing in the winter and has such limited space that you have to watch that you don’t hit a tool box or a bike rack when doing your hang power cleans or overhead jerks.¬† The spartan conditions in the garage gym allow me induce a vomiting grueling style workout without wasting an hour or two at the globo gym on the eliptical reading US weekly. Secondly the movements and the workouts are all I need to seek that elite level of fitness with minimal equipment. Homemade rings and medicine balls combined with a barbell and some weights have put me to the limits of my mental and physical capacities. Male abs classes being led by a guy in a sweater and toque tend to lack credibility (to me) and are purely for asthetics. It is a major league waste of time. Crossfit is not. It is more important than brushing your teeth in the morning if you want to live a long healthy productive life and keep fending off the reaper, sloth, and glutony.
