Olympic Weightlifting Gym with Competition Plates?

Currently lifting at Fortis Fitness and Tidal Crossfit Danforth.

Neither gym uses color-coded competition plates for the most part, Fortis uses Eleiko rubber kg bumper plates, reminiscent of the Rogue Wide Lb Bumpers, and Tidal mainly uses lb bumpers, with a small subset of Kanama kg bumpers that I've never used.

Neither place has platforms that are standard.

Any other recommendations nearby? Probably don't want to go to UofT as parking is annoying and I hear it gets crowded.

King's Highway CrossFit in Etobicoke has colour coded competition plates.
They have lbs for CrossFit and kgs plates for their weightlifting section.

check their instagram and maybe give them a call to see if that's what you're looking for.

How does a RFder afford a crossfit membership is the question...
Why do you require comp plates for every day training?

You don't have to be broke to use RFD lol.

Maybe he Oly lifts. Most gyms won't allow it unless they have a platform.

I oly lift.

Where I am know, the wider rubber plates make lifting a certain weight easier than the same weight with narrower competition plates, due to more whip effect of the bar.
