History of the Strongman Classic

As with many things, what began as a small idea has grown into a big deal. Fitness Inc.’s Strongman Classic, held annually during the Spirit of the Rockies Festival every June, started in 2004 with a fleeting idea and a lot of heart… then in 2005 came the help of two strong men. Grant McReynolds and Cory Gillespie were competitors in other Strongman events across the country and internationally. They responded to the need for official judges for Cranbrook’s event and in doing so, shared their knowledge. Today, the Strongman Classic is a cornerstone of the Spirit of the Rockies Festival, with competitors and spectators alike enjoying the day while taking part in an exciting show. The Strongman Classic is also a fundraiser, always in support of Cranbrook’s chapter of the BCSPCA; major sponsors like Trickle Creek Golf Resort, Mountain Spirit Resort, St. Eugene, Bridge Interiors, Lawn Barbers and Canyon Raft Company are huge contributors to the event, donating the raffle prizes. Between the support of these local businesses and the community, Fitness Inc. has been overjoyed to donate more than $32,000 to the BCSPCA in the last nine years. “Today, the Strongman Classic is a cornerstone of the Spirit of the Rockies Festival, with competitors and spectators alike enjoying the day while taking part in an exciting show. Major sponsors like Selkirk Beverages, the local distributor of Pepsi, Resolute Strength Wear, Smitty’s Cranbrook, Optimistic Enterprises, Steele Lizzy Coatings – EK BC and Salvador Ready Mix are huge contributors to the event.”
