gym party

Set aside Friday, January 17th as we celebrate 10 years of the StrengthBox gym.

This is a social event you really won’t want to miss, our Anniversay Party and Open House! Things will get started at 5:30pm at the gym (no evening classes that Friday night).

It’s difficult to believe that this little garage gym on Cranfield Rd in East York has been in operation for 10 years. Lots has happened and I’m very proud not only of the gym, but especially of our members and supporters — aka “the community”.

Ten years ago, the space was little more than four walls and a roll-up garage door. A vision was created to use the space to provide life-changing physical coaching. The goal was to help people build strong, lean and able bodies using the concepts of natural movement and functional exercise. We became the East York gym that provides serious training in a fun and unique community environment.

The concept was different from other options out there, and it got noticed. The StrengthBox got fantastic media coverage, everything from the local “Breakfast” shows to international publications like “Elle Canada” and “Details”.

But it’s the people who are the real story. It’s the stories of being able to climb a rope, lifting 315 pounds for the first time, being able to execute a perfect pushup, of finally being able to lose excess weight — those are the milestones truly worth celebrating.

It’s all too much to mention in a simple post. So please come out and join us!

Friday, Jan 17th, 2020 from 5:30 to 9:30pm
45 Cranfield Rd, Unit #5, East York

No classes that evening — the only thing we’ll be hoisting are glasses of wine and beer.
