Bruce Gordon — You Will Be Missed

Bruce Gordon — You Will Be Missed

I found out today that an ex member of CrossFit Lions has recently passed away. His home gym CrossFit Reebok 306 has programmed a workout for tomorrow in his honor.

Bruce and his wife Chris were members at Lions for a year about 4 years ago (ish). They came to Vancouver for Bruce career and were such a pleasure to have in the gym. He was a killer dude. Super fit and jacked for his age. Ex Iron man who loved to bike long distances.


Bruce was diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer at the age of 54. He is survived by his wife Chris and his kids James and Jill.

If you come to workout at Lions tomorrow I hope you take the time to do this workout. It means a lot to me.

“The Bruce”
In memory of Bruce Gordon who passed on 09/29/2017 at the age of 54.

Wearing a 20lbs vest (if possible) perform the following:

54 calories on the rower
29 push ups
17 squats
9 push press at 135/95lbs

*for larger classes we will also use the bike, ski erg and 800m run will be a substitute for the 54 calories.

** Coaches can chose their warm up and accessory exercises for after, time permitting.
*** Coaches please take a group class photo for all those who performed the workout and send it to me.
