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.

Congratulations Adam Takacs

Huge Congratulations to Fortis member and Canadian UItra-Marathon Champion, Adam Takacs on his recent race!


“I just wanted to share some of my recent success from the Pinhoti 100 mile race in Alabama. We ran from Heflin to Sylacauga through the Talladega National forest and traversed extremely technical terrain with some very fast runnable sections. Over the 100 miles we accumulated enough elevation gain that matched Mount Everest, and had a net loss of 500 feet which made the pounding on the quads extreme! I placed 2nd with a time of 18:48:49.

Thanks Fortis for contributing to my success!”

Fortis Fitness BBQ

Our gym was honored this weekend with strength legend visitors including:

Ed Coan, Matt Wenning, Charles Poliquin, Paul Carter and Ken Kinaken.  All here for a 3 day seminar, the only one to take place in North America.

So…..we threw a barbecue!  In our world of strength and performance, and on this particular weekend, this was likely the best place to be in the entire world.

Great thanks to all of these guys for visiting, the seminar attendees and all of our fine members.  Much appreciated!

Fortis Fitness Jumping Contest and Pot Luck
October 24, 2015

“Huge thank you to our kind members who brought such fantastic dishes to our Pot Luck and Jumping Contest last Friday evening.  There was nothing left and everyone who ate raved about how they loved your food!”

“Jasmin Cull took first with Kyle DeGannes in second place, followed by Royce Rabanal.  Really you all won since you can jump the hell out of the rest of us anyway!  Jasmin performed a truly spectacular 65 inch running jump to cap off a very impressive evening of athleticism.” ​​​
