Our Vision: To inspire fitness of body and mind on a continual and evolving basis. 


"Best coaches around no question about it. Incredible atmosphere and even better people. My favorite hours of the week are spent here."

"I would highly recommend this location to anyone looking to improve their health and fitness. Both owners are super cool, available to answer any questions, and down to earth. Samantha is truly passionate about helping others and she's an unreal coach full of knowledge. Most importantly, it's nice to workout in a friendly setting where everyone is willing to help each other out"

To shape our future, we always pay tribute to our past. Dynamo Academy started as a small venture between two world-class powerlifters acquiring CrossFit Ottawa (now CrossFit O-Town) in 2013 and opening a powerlifting gym concurrently, named Dynamo Barbell. The history of  these two entities has produced world-champion powerlifters as well as both team and individual CrossFit Regional competitors.

The incorporation of Dynamo Academy in November 2016 has further synergized our services and will allow us to optimize various fitness programs and opportunities for our clients. We welcome all of you to join us on our journey of self-improvement. Regardless of where you are in life or fitness, remember the 3D aspect of existence:


  • Discipline: Stay focused and self-disciplined about your sleep, your nutrition and your fitness.


  • Devotion: Instill a sense of purpose in achieving your goals in life.


  • Dichotomy: Fitness, like life, relies on strict management of opposing forces. Strive to maintain balance.

Lift Something and Learn Something Every Day, 

Jay, Pete and Sam
