To shape our future, we always pay tribute to our past. Dynamo Academy started as a small venture between two world-class powerlifters acquiring CrossFit Ottawa (now CrossFit O-Town) in 2013 and opening a powelifting gym concurrently, named Dynamo Barbell. The history of these two entities has produced world-champion powerlifters as well as both team and individual CrossFit Regional competitors.
The incorporation of Dynamo Academy in November 2016 has further synergized our services and will allow us to optimize various fitness programs and opportunities for our clients. We welcome all of you to join us on our journey of self-improvement. Regardless of where you are in life or fitness, remember the 3D aspect of existence:
Discipline: Stay focused and self-disciplined about your sleep, your nutrition and your fitness.
Devotion: Instill a sense of purpose in achieving your goals in life.
Dichotomy: Fitness, like life, relies on strict management of opposing forces. Strive to maintain balance.
Never Stop Striving,
Jay, Pete and Sam
