EVERETT WITH MIKKO

EVERETT WITH MIKKO

Everett Sloan, Owner

Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life,” are the wise words of Confucius that Everett has held close to him. Growing up, he was an active individual wielding his father’s concrete-filled Weider weights in his basement growing up.  Once he hit college, he demonstrated a keen interest in bodybuilding and pursued that avenue for a couple of years and it led to a great modeling carrer.  wHen he abandoned bodybuilding and moved on to compete in local power lifting and strongman competitions, but that was short-lived as he didn't like the toll it took on his body. for years after that he trained without real direction or purpose in globo gyms.

In 2005 Everett was involved in a severe motorcycle accident and was told he would not be able to walk again.  Refusing to quit, he started moving around in his wheelchair in the hospital corridors for exercise.  He defied the odds and would soon be back in the gym after finishing up with his physiotherapy.

One of the major challenges that Everett faced was limitation with his body movement.  While relearning movements and finding ways to adapt he turned to the web where he discovered CrossFit.  Starting by incorporating some of the CrossFit methodologies in his workout at the local Globo Gym, it then escalated to turning his garage into a gym where he and several friends trained.  Everett finally bit the bullet in 2010 and joined a box; it was there he had the opportunity to compete in the CrossFit Canada East Regionals, which further inspired him.  From that moment he discovered CrossFit, it has evolved into a passion, one that he has decided to share with his members.
