No! CrossFit has an open business model – they are not a franchise. This means individual CrossFit boxes operate under their own philosophy and offer their own atmospheres; each owner and each staff is completely different. We are the only gym in the area that has multiple career coaches whose sole job is to make sure they are the best coach they can be. Recently big name gym’s have taken to offering “CrossFit” classes, often taught by uncertified or inexperienced trainers to try to cash in on CrossFit’s growing reputation. Hamilton’s Alchemy CrossFit has been around since 2009 and is one of Canada’s earliest CrossFit boxes. We operate on three core values; inclusive, excellence, and fun! Come on in for a free trial to see what effect an awesome community has on your training!

Membership Terms:
Alchemy CrossFit offers a variety of memberships to work with your schedules and budgets. We offer 2 classes per week (Bronze), 3 days per week (Silver), and unlimited (Gold) memberships. All of our memberships are available on a month to month basis or a 12 month commitment (paid monthly). We also offer 10 class and 20 class passes.

Upgrading your membership:
We understand that things change; work or school can get crazy, or you can set new fitness and life goals that demand more training time. We make it easy to change your membership to suit your schedule. All you have to do to adjust your membership is talk to one of the coaches.

Cancellations:
Unlike most in the fitness industry we are not in the business locking you in. We also don’t charge “Initiation”, “Start-Up”, “Gym Improvement”, or “Hold” fees. If you sign up for 12 months there is NO cancellation fee for 3 months. This is your grace period to make sure you love us. After that the cancellation is $50 for life no matter how much time is left on your contract. This way signing up for the 12 months that you expect to stay for is totally risk free.

Billing:
We ask for a void check or a per-authorized debit form to simplify the monthly billing for your account. We do not currently accept credit or debit cards.

We’re proud of you for even asking. Nutrition can spur you on to the heights of greatness or can be your Achilles heel. Alchemy CrossFit offers nutritional counselling for free to our members. Any fitness program worth their weight should do the same.

We provide comprehensive nutritional guidance for all our members. As much as we would love it, the gym alone won’t get you to your extraordinary – The old adage “You can’t out train bad nutrition” is very true. So we’ll help you get the most out of your training by getting the most out of your eating. Whether your goal is weight loss, weight gain, or anything in between we can work with you to adjust your nutrition to help you reach your goal quickly and safely. We provide feedback, meal plans, and shopping lists free of charge with our Silver and Gold memberships.

We understand that people are busy. We want to treat our members the way we would like to be treated. Our memberships allow you to attend whichever classes and class times interest you. You can come on Monday and Wednesday afternoon one week, and Tuesday and Thursday morning the next. You can take CrossFit classes, KettleBell Classes, Boxing or Kickboxing, Stretching and mobility, or Olympic weightlifting. If there is a class that you’re interested in, you can try it out!

No. While CrossFit is our most popular class we do offer the Hamilton Ontario region the following services: Powerlifting, Olympic Weightlifting, Boxing Classes, CrossFit Endurance, One on One Coaching Personal Training, Group Training Classes, Team Training, and Corporate Health and Fitness.
