Magnus demonstrated the importance of good technique and speed in the use of barbells, which are a crucial component of the CrossFit program.  During the demonstration, Magnus lifted over 500 pounds and benched over 400 pounds; he also lifted reporter Joanne Schnurr from CTV, as can be seen in the video.

Magnus praised the school’s program and told the students to listen carefully to teacher Brian Dickie, whom he praised for his knowledge and enthusiasm.   He related travelling all over the world and never having seen a program like the one at CPHS.
