The FirePower Story
FirePower is the life story of George and Andrea Savard and their twins Samuel and Charly. It was born from our vision to reconnect families through sport and our desire to have our family simply be together. The twins were 6 months old when George had an idea to start a gym of our own. Between bottles, diapers, George’s shifts at the fire department and Andrea’s corporate marketing job, plans got underway. Initial training began inside a high school in Cambridge, Ontario in 2005 as a recreation boxing gym. Within 2 years, Team FirePower had grown into it’s own facility, added a competitive boxing division, and had sent Andrea to the Canadian National Championships following a Provincial title.
Using George’s training experience from his pro football days, Team FirePower combined boxing, Olympic lifting and training into their FirePower Hockey program, leading elite OHL and NHL athletes to top fitness testing results. This division gained success from training the entire Kitchener Rangers team, to Chris Gratton, Rich Peverly, Scott Walker, and more, and has been directly involved in many young athletes drafted to the NHL since 2006.
In 2008, we opened FirePower CrossFit in Milton, Ontario. At the time, it was the largest CrossFit Affiliate in Canada and one of the largest in North America. Through the help of some early adopters and our dedicated training staff we all began spreading the word and the excitement of CrossFit to the town of Milton. With a staff of over 15 people, they are almost all still here today. Passionate about fitness, family and the CrossFit philosophy…chasing virtuosity.
FirePower Kids came to life in 2009. Striving to have families workout together and share a passion for fitness, the kids CrossFit and boxing program brought kids off their ipods and game boys while parents worked out, and started new conversations at the dinner table. Five years later we have seen kids growing up CrossFit, eating healthy, learning the basics of movement for whatever sport they want to play, and for some, finding that CrossFit has become their sport!
In September 2011, FirePower entered into an exciting partnership with Reebok to continue our quest for bringing a whole new culture of health fitness to Milton & beyond! We are extremely proud to be part of a growing international CrossFit Family. George and Andrea were invited to represent Canada on the Global Affiliate Board through Reebok International with other RCF affiliates from Korea, Spain, Panama, France, Dubai, and the USA.
