CHRIS KURZ - Owner of Dynafit, Listowel

Chris Kurz (Kurzy) has been passionate about fitness since he joined Dynafit at the age of 14. After being a dedicated member for 15 years, his dedication to Dynafit led him to purchase and become the sole owner of the fitness facility. Chris has spent 20 years of his life helping others any way he can through fitness.

To date, he has participated in 3 ultra-marathons raising over $50,000 for Cystic Fibrosis Canada and performed three acts of strength in his Zamboni pull, car carry and pot of gold yoke events at Paddyfest raising over $43,000 for the Listowel Memorial Hospital, and $21,000 for the Salvation Army. Additionally, Chris is involved in multiple other charities in his daily life, including the Listowel Kinsmen Club and Listowel Legion. Chris has proven that his passion for supporting others has no limits. His gym is as supporting and welcoming as he is. His overwhelming kindness and great spirit create a welcoming atmosphere at Dynafit. 

When the Listowel Legionnaires folded in 2015, Kurzy saw an opportunity to once again support his community and realize a dream of owning a sports franchise. The Legionnaires are not only back and entertaining the area's baseball fans, but they are supporting the local Legion Branch, the kids of Listowel Minor Baseball, all the while making upgrades to the legendary John Bell South ballpark.
