Joined May 1st 2018, best decision ever! Looking forward to all the challenges each day, really tests you mentally and physically. You can't put a price on health, happiness and a sense of fulfillment! More...
Fantastic place with excellent coaches and caring owners.
Very well put together box. There was lots of room even though there was close to 50 people inside. Coaches were willing to help. Great place.

Friendly, welcoming and great coaching. In bigger CF gyms I have sometimes felt coaches couldn't get round everyone to coach effectively but not an issue at RCR. And a great tip from Ken meant I PR'd my snatch!! More...
The biggest asset this place has: people. Not just the coaches, but the athletes you'll train alongside. Just a whole bunch of awesome!
I did the Masters Challenge in June and haven't looked back! Love pretty much everything about this gym from the location to the coaches to WODs!
Being brand new to crossfit and rather intimidated I can tell you its nice to have such a warm welcome and understanding. The coaches are always friendly and helpful and willing to scale things to your abilities. So so happy I made the decision to come to Crossfit Ramsey! You should definitely consider checking it out !

My only beef with RCR is the fact that nobody warned me that I would have to re-purchase my entire wardrobe when fat that I didn't even know existed started disappearing from my body. I then made the mistake of buying new clothes too early, because not long after I did, I dropped even more sizes. That's seriously a pain but besides that, this place is the bomb dot com. More...
Have to say RCR is the place to go for Crossfit. I have tried a few places and none of them stack up to RCR. Top notch facilities as well as amazing coaches. You want to learn and challenge yourself in a really supportive environment, then this is it. More...
I started the 6 week challenge and I have not left, nor do I plan on it! Coming from someone who didn't work out I feel it has change my life tenfold!
I have a long ways to go yet and I have no intensions of quitting! This is my new lifestyle and I owe it to RCR!
Thank you Holly and Emily for your time and support and I look forward to all of our classes together� More...
The coaches are amazing, the work outs are hard and the results are worth it! New friends and new found love for crossfit! Thanks to the 6 week challenge for introducing me to this wonderful place I'll never look back! More...
Amazing box! Incredible coaches, space, equipment, and very welcoming people. Thanks for having my husband and I during our holiday!
I joined RCR last April and it has been a wonderful time so far and I know it is just going to get better the coaches are fabulous it's like one big happy family
Witch reminds me it is almost time to renew my membership More...
From the owner to the coaches to the athletes there isn't a better place to work out. The community is amazing. What we have is very special and you will not find this in a global gym.

I love working out there! People are great, coaches are Awesome, always feel welcome and not intimidated ���
Love the coaches, they are very knowledgeable and each one brings their own unique experiences and techniques to the classes. I don’t feel judged if I need to modify a movement due to health concerns. Couldn’t ask for a better community� More...

My boyfriend is exacted and he feels it is his thing.
I've been meaning to write this review for quite sometime but it slipped my mind. I started at RCR in 2013 after being introduced to the gym through a friend who coached at the gym at the time Ben. Immediately I felt welcomed by the coaching staff who spent much more time with me then they had to. I remember one instance within my first two months where coaches and owners Ken and Bryan spent over an hour after class working with me on my snatch, I must have gone through over 100 reps in that hour and I learned so much about positioning and speed. Coach Dylan did the same thing for me with muscle ups the following month and eventually I got one. It's hard to remember all the times that coaches spent extra time with me after or before class(and we would be here all day if I told you), but I can tell you that had to be hundreds during my nearly 3 years at Ramsay. The Classes at Ramsay are a hour long each but often you'll find people show up quite early to stretch and socialize with other members. The format generally consists of a warm up then a strength or skill portion followed by a Metcon. The strength portion and metcons are almost always programmed as a part of a bigger picture with a focus on certain skills whether it be Olympic lifting, Gymnastics, Conditioning or any combination of those and I saw very consistent and steady improvements during my time at Ramsay. If your looking to get into Olympic weightlifting RCR also has a barbell club which is fantastic. I spent the majority of my last year with RCR working on Olympic lifting with coach Geoff. He also led me through my first weightlifting competition which was a blast. The barbell club has to be one of the funnest group I've ever had the pleasure to train with and I've made some great friends through the club. If I had one final thing to say about RCR I would say that most people walk through the doors hoping to get fit but the reason most people stick around is because of the community, I made a lot of great friends during my time at RCR and had some great experience as a result of my time there.

Everything you want in a crossfit box, huge space, showers, great coaches, great community, annnnd they have saunas. Nuff said
Last year, a girlfriend asked if I was going to sign up for the Crossfit Games which is where a WOD (workout of the day) is released on each Thursday starting February 27 for 5 weeks up until March 27 where you are ranked with athletes that have signed up worldwide. I was unaffiliated and looking for a box to do the WODs at. My gf had already been at Ramsay for a couple months so I decided to go to Ramsay. When I signed up for a month membership, I had no intention of being committed; I just wanted to complete the WODs at a box.. I even specifically told the front desk "I'm not committing, just wanna come for the month". I got a tour of the facility, saw all the amazing equipment and space and felt completely welcomed. To be honest, at first I was intimidated because I was surrounded by a lot of fit people but don't let change your mind. There is all different shapes and sizes, take note that everyone has the ability to do crossfit, it's up to you if you want to learn more and progress. The coaches are amazing - they are technical and very accommodating, they understand that not everyone is at the same physical level. Every class is mixed with beginners to advanced athletes. If you are a beginner, coaches will give you some modification to an exercise but if you've been crossfitting for a while, they have a great eye and will give you tips so you can immediately improve on the movements. Each class is an hour long. At the beginning of the sessions, everybody does a warm-up and stretches together. Some days there is a strength exercise for the first 20-25 minutes of the class and then there is always a WOD shortly after. Other days, there can be a chipper which is between 5 to 10 movements designed to push your metabolic condition. WODs can range from under 5 minutes to over 45 minutes and in between. Don't be scared! You go at your own pace. You can either go ALL OUT or just take it easy. It's all up to you. Don't worry if you are the last person to finish, we are all there for you cheering you on! Sure people are watching but we only want the best for you. We know you are hurting but we all hurt together! No pain, no gain! ;) Not only does Ramsay have regular Crossfit classes but there is an On Ramp program for athletes just getting into Crossfit, Personal training for those athletes that want that one on one, Olympic lifting on Mon, Tue, & Thursdays for athletes that want to improve on their lifts and focus on technique, Gymnastics once a week for those who want to work on their physical strength and flexibility and Crossfit kids classes for that fun fitness environment for the little ones. Can't forget about the infrared sauna in each of the change rooms. A great post WOD recovery to relieve those sore muscles and get rid of those toxins! Reebok Crossfit Ramsay is my home away from home and I've never been happier with my decision to join this wonderful family. I feel stronger, healthier and happier than ever before. Lifelong friendships and personal fitness goals are bound to happen at RCR. Come see what this talk is all about - the first class is free, just give RCR a call or sign up on their website reebokcrossfitramsay.com…!Hope to see you there! :) More...
Dropped in during Stampede weekend. This place is a CrossFit Mecca! Incredible space, very hospitable staff and members and very well designed and laid out. Highly recommend it if you are looking for a great gym outside of downtown Calgary. More...
I've been twice now and I like it.At first, the lack of mirrors really through me off. How was I supposed to check my form? The second time I went back, I attended the Basics class and it was great. They started with low weight to help me "feel" my form and then built up from there.What I like about it:- A great range of equipment,- energetic classmates and instructors,- it's half way between my place and my boyfriends so it's convenient for both of us- there's parking and I don't have to pay to park there- I like that workouts get switched up daily and I feel like I'll be fitter and stronger two weeks from now.What I don't like about it:- I still sort of want the mirrors but this is a big no=no in cross fit- it was a tiny bit intimidating at first but I think that's the case with every new gym I've ever tried. Seriously. I just need to get over that. More...
