Fortis Fitness BBQ

Thanks to all of our wonderful members for attending our Gym Barbecue on September 8th and also to Ninette, Daniel and all who helped us out.  Special thanks to the Meating On Queen and the awesome Plaza Family for the artisan, sausages made with farm fresh, natural ingredients including only pastured meats.

We love these guys and they work extremely hard to bring naturally raised foods to our neighborhood at a truly reasonable price: https://www.facebook.com/MEATing-on-Queen-142260052471316/?hc_ref=SEARCH&fref=nf

The bison was from our friends over at Second Wind Elk Farm, courtesy of their Mississauga outlet store – Black Angus Meats and Game: https://www.blackangusmeat.com/

Huge thanks also to our Buddy, Alex at our neighbor, Cinq Foods for catering, barbecuing, and running this event:
We hope everyone had a good time and we will try to do this again soon!

Congratulations Jonathan Rodney and coach Anton Skripalev

Every day, here at Fortis Fitness our members and competitive athletes alike astound us with dramatic improvements and achievements – from world class Ultra Marathoners to the strength events and all sports in between.

21 year old Jonathan Rodney is just one of the latest.

Huge congratulations for his epic performance at his VERY FIRST power-lifting meet – “Fall at Forge”, in Toronto back on November 16, 2016.

At a body weight of 255 lbs. and competing as a Junior, Raw Classic, in this CPF event he achieved a 575 pound back squat, 365 pound bench, and 700 POUND DEAD-LIFT!  This kid has been training for only 18 months.

That is a 1638 total with a Wilks score of 431.  Good for 4 Raw, Junior CPF records.

Congratulations also to coach, Anton Skripalev (left) who came to us from Russia and trains Power and Olympic lifters and Arm Wrestlers and who shares in this awesome achievement.
