ABOUT US

CrossFit Midtown is Atlanta's School of Elite Fitness. If you’ve spent the past several years at the typical gym you’re in for a genuine treat. Say goodbye to the machines. Say goodbye to the monotonous routines.

Each day at CrossFit Midtown is a new adventure. A new challenge. A new chance to get to know your community, and to get to know yourself.

Check out all the new stuff at CFM!


Did you see the JOD (joke of the day) board up front? That's right, ladies and gentlemen, in addition to life-changing health and fitness, CrossFit Midtown now ALSO brings you daily laughter. You're welcome. If you hate to laugh, there's also a motivational QuOD (quote of the day) on the board. So you can be uplifted after you giggle.
And oh, did you notice we also knocked a wall down? Later this week the new pull up rig will be installed, and showers are still on the way too. We're getting awesomer!

Free community WOD this Sunday

Let's get together to break a sweat for the free August Community WOD at lululemon howell mill on Sunday at 10am. We're heading to brunch afterward at Urban Pl8. I hope to see lots of CFMers there!

Party over heeeeeere

A wise man once said, "Birds of a feather flock together." So it should be no surprise that so many AWESOME people with August birthdays have flocked to CrossFit Midtown. Let's get together to celebrate this weekend by breaking a sweat for the free August Community WOD at lululemon howell mill on Sunday at 10am, then heading to brunch afterward at Urban Pl8. I hope to see lots of CFMers there!

Hooverball cancelled this weekend

Whole Life Challenge

I know, I know...you're tired of hearing about the Whole Life Challenge and how you should totally get into the game. You're all, "Goodness gracious, I already play pretty close to these rules... why do I need to pay for a Challenge?" or "I know I'm not going to be perfect, so why even play?"
Or, my personal favorite, "I don't want to be excommunicated just because I don't participate."
To be clear, there will be no excommunication.. there WILL BE a lot of people around the gym getting healthier, improving at WODs/lifts, leaning out/bulking up, and just developing better life habits in general. Soooo, if you feel excluded, it's only because MORE THAN 30 of your CFM-mates are already in the game.

I know eight weeks is a big commitment. You don't have to be a hermit. We'll plan group outings that have nothing to do with non-WLC-approved foods/activities. I'm talking hiking, rock climbing, gun range, trampolining, roller derby... etc...

Just take it day by day and create a better life for yourself. Still on the fence? Check out this testimonial...

Email us or come to the Pre-Challenge Huddle if you have more questions. Don't let self-doubt leave you out of the game...You can do it.

Mark your calendars for upcoming WLC cahoots:
Saturday, September 8 at noon- WLC Pre-Challenge Huddle
Friday, September 14- WLC Eve Not-Paleo Potluck
Saturday, September 15- WLC Prelims
Friday, October 12- Paleo Potluck
Saturday, November 10- WLC Finals, Awards Ceremony and Finals Party
