WELCOME TO GIRLS GONE RX CANADA!
As athletes, we have to be prepared for the unknown and unknowable.
Girls Gone Rx Canada helps women work through their strengths and their weaknesses by creating team events that encourage getting out of your comfort zone while having fun and raising awareness for a great cause.
Teams of three women participate in four team workouts. You can all be from different gyms and you don’t have to be affiliated or a seasoned competitor, you just need to be badass and ready to sweat. Wear your most ridiculous matching outfits (make sure you incorporate some pink) and come up with a clever team name. The goal is to HAVE FUN. Oh, and did we mention there are prizes?!

Compete for a Cure! Our all-women competition encourages fun and fitness while raising awareness for The Canadian Cancer Society.
HOW IT ALL STARTED
Girls Gone Rx started with the idea of getting women together to benefit a great cause. The objective was to do something that showcased women’s strengths and weaknesses, because those are the two most important parts of battling something like cancer. You have to learn to be strong even when you’re feeling weak, but sometimes you also have to be willing to be weak and allow your team to support you. This team building event helps women learn to fight through obstacles and overcome them while learning to be strong, confident and fearless.
The first competition was in 2012 and was hosted at CrossFit Eminence, the gym of Girls Gone Rx founder, Lindsey Marcelli. In 2014, it was decided to take it global with events all across the US, Canada, and the UK and we are working on broadening our range even further for 2017!
Every Canadian Girls Gone Rx event raises money for our chosen charity, The Canadian Cancer Society. Everyone involved in the events, from judges to volunteers to vendors and athletes, are committed to the cause. This is not just another competition – it’s an energy-fueled event built on a shared belief in supporting something greater than ourselves.
WHAT DOES THE COMPETITION LOOK LIKE?
Girls Gone Rx Canada is an all-female competition made up of three person teams. Girls Gone Rx Canada is a platform for women to team up and compete together; even those who have never competed. When you get women together, it is all about empowering each other and supporting each other. Each event and each workout is designed for women to come together and overcome something they perhaps didn’t think was possible.
