Will Rajbar - Owner
Will’s background as a top level competitive athlete led him to seek a degree from the University of Western Ontario in Health Sciences and Kinesiology and he graduated in 2012 as a Doctor of Chiropractic. Throughout his academic career, Will has worked with and learned from some of the top human movement scientists, and rehabilitation experts. As a personal trainer, Will has worked with a range of clients from Corporate VP’s, clients with prosthetic limbs and many top level athletes.
Will first heard about CrossFit from his training partner Chris Pacheco. At the time he already did many CrossFit movements, however he was left in the dust when he and Chris competed in a workout that sounded easy (FRAN). It was clear that his limitations had been exposed so he immediately started practicing CrossFit and hasn’t looked back since.
After a significant fracture/dislocation (Fibula/Ankle) and multiple surgeries over the course of a year, Will found that he could adapt elements of gymnastics used in CrossFit combined with advanced rehabilitation to bring himself back to top level strength and conditioning within months. Since his injury, Will’s specialized in combining CrossFit with rehabilitation for an unbeatable active recovery process. For Will, CrossFit is not just his profession, it’s his lifestyle.
