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.

 WORKOUT OF THE DAY

05.30.13 Be a great training partner!

By | Bring a Friend Days, Rowing, WOD | No Comments

Are you a good training partner?

Have you ever thought about what kind of energy you bring to your CrossFit class? Are you friendly & positive or grumpy & negative? Have you ever considered that the attitude you bring to class could bring your classmates down?
I never thought about it myself until I read an article in the Performance Menu a little over a year ago. I was training for the CrossFit Games competition season with a group of eight other girls at CFNA, and we found ourselves over-trained and grumpy. Our lives had been turned upside down by the training volume of preparing for competition, and some of us wondered if it was worth the sacrifice. We found ourselves commiserating and complaining about our coach, our achy muscles, our non-existent social lives, etc.
The article I read encouraged athletes to consider what kind of energy you bring to a training session. It inspired me to turn my attitude around rather than contribute to the dark cloud of perma-PMS which had recently settled over our women's team training sessions.
I write about this now because I'm constantly impressed with the cheerful, hard-working crew we typically have at CFM. Many days, I find myself stressed out while doing office work, only to be reinvigorated when your smiling faces walk into the box.
But on a few rare occasions, I hear some CLASS GRUMPS bringing the energy down.
PLEASE! Come to the box to blow off steam. This is great stress relief!
BUT PLEASE! Do your best to leave those outside problems at the door. Channel all the positive energy you've got into making this the best hour of your day. Work hard, and pat yourself on the back for getting to the gym at all today. Be a great training partner. Respect your classmates' right to learn and work in a positive environment. Don't bring the CFMojo down!
