The CrossFit Port Credit Story

About CrossFit PortCredit

From the Founders

If you’ve ever browsed the internet looking for workout advice, you know how difficult it is to identify programs that work. Even experienced gym-goers get caught up in workouts that promise massive gains in six weeks or less.

That’s why our gym is so valuable for so many people. Instead of doing the research yourself, we’ve done that part of the work for you. All you need to do is show up and give each workout your all.

Some people get their motivation from slow and steady improvement, while others thrive on competition. No matter what your style, we offer a space where you can see results more quickly than other gym routines, as long as you put in the hard work.

What sets CrossFit apart from other workouts and gyms is that we believe in combining strength with endurance for maximum performance. We want you to get strong and capable and see the difference functional strength can make in your life.

Our Management Team

Jen Callahan Patel

Fitness has always been a priority for Jen.  In 2016, she discovered CrossFit at a time when she wanted to kickstart her fitness journey as a new mom, ultimately joining the gym when her second daughter was 6 months old.  She started slow with two classes a week and like many members fell in love and built up from there.  In 2020, at the height of COVID, Jen and her co-owners purchased CFPC from the original owners who were moving back out East and were going to close the gym.  Due to the gym and the community becoming so important to her physical and mental health, Jen knew immediately she wanted to keep CFPC open.  The gym continues to be one of her favourite places and it is her motivation to provide a space in the community that brings them health and connection.  Jen is proud of the special community at CFPC and is not surprised when people comment on the positive energy at the gym.  Jen reflection how the community is diverse, inclusive and caring.  As well as an owner, Jen is a worker in the healthcare industry and a mom of 2 daughters.  Jen is frequently seen at the gym throughout the week when it fits with her family’s busy schedule!

Nitin Patel

Nitin, Jen’s husband, similarly started Crossfit in 2016.  Inspired by the community, Nitin loves providing a space for new members, some of whom previously lived sedentary lives, experience the transformative power of functional training.  Nitin’s favourite part of the community is the camaraderie.  He loves meeting people of all walks of life who quickly shift from gym friends to life long friends outside of the gym. O utside of the gym Nitin is a fixed income portfolio manager and busy dad keeping up with his wife and 2 daughters.  Nitin is currently enjoying the journey being a gym owner/ member and is a privilege to get to know at the gym!
