Atlanta's School Of Elite Fitness


CrossFit Midtown is building a healthier Midtown, one student at a time.



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.

Whole Life Challenge check-in

I set an alarm on my phone, but I was coaching an intro when it went off Saturday and quickly turned it off. WHOOPS! What's been the toughest part for you? Post in the comments and let us know.

An Ode to CrossFit

-by Instructor Training Program member Courtney
Gone are the hours of elliptisizing,
and my days as a treadmill track star.
I've traded in those nautilus machines
for a box, bumpers, and an Olympic bar.

Gone are the pretty pedis and French manicures
replaced by hardened calluses, chalk, and hand rips.
I've gone down a cup size and moved up a bust size,
from thousands of pullups, pushups and dips.

I belong to a place where anything is possible
and we never say never.
I may not be as young as I once was,
but damn, my snatch is looking better than ever.

Strong is beautiful
and being "a beast" is the best.
Not blowing our WOD
is our daily test.

We eat like cavemen:
no grains, no sugar, no junk.
At first this Whole Life Challenge
had me all in a funk!

My muscle mass is going up.
My body fat is going down.
I push so hard,
I've even met our mascot, Pukie the Clown.

The husband admits
he's not as strong as his wife.
There's no going back now:
CrossFitter for life!

Our Instructor Training Program members, pictured above, are going through a Goals Coaching class this Sunday night. What are your October goals?

Workout of the Day

A. Back Squat: 3x3, rest 3min
B. 3 rounds for time:
10 Box Jumps 30/24
100 double unders or 300 jump rope singles
1000m row or 800m run
