Just finished my 1st month of 2 classes a week. Didn't know how I would like it. Ends up I LOVE it! Even after a month I have noticed I have a little more strength when on the ice and in the corners against, bigger players. Legs especially.

Great group of people, who support each other. Great coach. Patient, explains everything well. You can tell he wants you to do well and benefit from the classes. No B.S here. Organized, well planned classes that will make you work your ass off.

I love Crossfit Wolvish. I have loved this place for over two years now, and I still get a rush every day I get to go through Wolvish's doors. Why? Because the owners are the coaches and they care and are active about every class they run. I've never seen either Steve or Anj 'phone in' their coaching. They get you excited to learn proper technique and skills, and to push you to do better each day you come in. And they've created a community that is welcoming and encouraging of anyone new. I'm stronger than I've ever been; I'm fitter than I've ever been; I have accomplished goals that I never even knew I was capable of; and I have challenges ahead of me that I am actively working on. It's hard work, but it's FUN and it feels great. Thank you so much Steve and Anj! More...

I joined Wolvish Crossfit at the recommendation of a friend who had gone there for years. Being a disabled individual and just getting over some fairly significant health issues, I was unsure they could accommodate me. But the coaches have been so supportive and have done an amazing job adapting workouts to meet my needs. Crossfit has something for everybody, regardless of abilities. The Wolvish community is also very welcoming and super friendly.

If you are looking for a new challenge in physical fitness, check out Wolvish Crossfit.

I had my first ABCs class tonight. I immediately felt welcomed walking into the gym. I am generally intimidated by gyms. The encouragement that was offered during the mini workout was great and needed. Looking forward to next time. Definitely lived up to the reviews I read online More...

I started coming to Wolvish a year ago, after years of lifting weights and running but never having a trainer or really going to classes at the gym and having struggled with back pain and injuries. As a fat, middle-aged woman interested in being strong and fit, but not interested in dieting or body shaming, I had a lot of hesitation about Crossfit and worried that it would be just a bunch of super fit snobs. My experience at Wolvish has been incredible, from the really friendly, diverse, and non-judgey community to the body-positive programming. Steve and the coaches push the limits of what I can do in a way that builds capacity and joy - I'm stronger than I've ever been, not in any back pain for the first time in ten years, and feel so grateful for this gym.

This place is the real deal. Great people. Welcoming. Hard workouts. As a sport med doc I see a lot of ppl wreck themselves w Xfit. Coach Nez n crew won't let this be you as they have a great depth of knowledge and the right attitude to pushing your limits both intensely and safely. Loved my drop in while visiting Ottawa.

I was visiting Ottawa for a few weeks and had a great experience working out at Wolvish. Coach Steve spent a lot of time working with people on perfecting their movements (or whatever stage they were at on being able to get there). Even though I was only spending a few weeks there, Steve also spent lots of time coaching me too. He had lots of different variations and scaled versions for every level. Great atmosphere, friendly people and lots of class times to fit your schedule. More...

I dropped in on a class here while on business. TIP: you may go through the brewery or go way around the building to the very back garage door. My experience was one of the best and friendliest of my drop ins - just look at the picture, the entire class did that for me. Coaches were fantastic if I lived in Ontario I would join this box. And when I come back for business, I'll be there again. More...

The friendliest group of people you could ask for when you're traveling and drop in for a session. And the wod was good fun too.

Owners Steve and Anj have built a great box! All the coaches are encouraging and supportive. I walked into Wolvish 10 months ago, and I knew from day 1 it was where I belonged, in fact I should have been there months prior. Everyone is very welcoming and encouraging, the sense of community is unlike anything I have ever seen. If you want to challenge yourself and get stronger in a safe and fun environment, this is the place for you. More...

I started two months as a total CrossFit beginner, which was quite intimidating - Steve and the other coaches made sure I was comfortable with the movements, and always scaled to my skill level. After training in a few other smaller gyms, and larger chains, I can definitely say, hands down, this is the best coaching and workouts I've ever done. Even in the larger classes, I always get the one-on-one attention needed to improve that particular movement. I'm very happy with the progress I've made, and am genuinely excited each day for class (and completely exhausted afterwards). Highly recommend this facility - come join the Wolf Pack! More...

If you are a first time crossfitter or a seasoned vet Wolvish is an excellent choice. The coaches are incredibly passionate and knowledgeable and the crew at Wolvish are some of the friendliest people you will ever meet! There's a reason Crossfit Wolvish was named one of the top Crossfit boxes in Ottawa in a recent article and it becomes very apparent after experiencing just one class! More...

I had no experience with crossfit or much weight lifting before I started at Wolvish, but the coaches are very supportive and very good at helping you get the right technique and improve. The rest of the Wolvish community is also really supportive of newbies! I'm really enjoying it! More...

After 12 sessions I'm down 21.5 pounds... that's over a month and a half period and I feel amazing. So glad I joined the pack!

I didn't have very much experience working out prior to coming to the gym. I was pretty sure I liked crossfit but when I went to other crossfit places, I felt like an outsider because I didn't know the terms, how to do the workouts and largely felt ignored. I was really impressed that when I joined all the coaches learnt my name immediately and really took the time to show me how to do the movements properly. The community is fantastic and welcoming, I am happy that I found it! More...

I first arrived to Wolvish searching for the right gym to meet my workout needs. I had visited a few other gyms around Ottawa but Wolvish just met all my requirements and our coaches really know how to breakdown the moves of crossfit. Not to forget, I love the new facilities and I always have a great time when I'm there. More...

Kicks your butt every time and yet I can't wait for the next session, it's that good. They constantly evolve and put so much effort into us, so much respect, admiration and appreciation for everything they (Steve and Anj) have brought me. Great sense of family, a support structure that makes a huge difference, home away from home. THANK YOU Nomadic! You absolutely are game changers More...
