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.

It takes a village

The CrossFit Midtown community is growing. And as our student body and programs expand, so does our need for a strong team.
I'm so proud to announce, as we build that team, that Beka was promoted this month to Assistant Operations Manager at CFM!
If you train in the mornings, you know Beka well already as she coaches the early birds four days a week. She's also added a few noon classes to her coaching schedule, as well as some intro sessions. Beka will also be helping with some event planning, accountability & nutrition coaching, and she'll be taking the CFM reins while I'm on vacation next month (Amen :)).
Beka came to us from another local CrossFit gym, with some CrossFit & boot camp coaching experience. She heard about our Instructor Training Program (ITP) last fall & contacted me to learn more. We met a few times, and soon she was active in ITP, then coaching classes, & now she helps run the program along with Cassie!
Along with Cassie & Carlos, Beka also recently attended Carl Paoli's Freestyle Connection Movement Seminar. We'll share more of her tips from that workshop on the blog next week.
Congrats on your new role Beka, and thanks for all you do!
As always, let any of your CFM coaches know how we can help improve your training & quest for better health & fitness.

Best. Summer. Ever.

As I laid at the pool Sunday until almost 8pm with FULL SUN, it hit me that summer is here. All the good - pool & lake time, sunshine, afternoons at the park... and the bad - thunderstorms, mosquitoes, muggy days (and nights!) are here to stay for the next few months.
At CFM, we've got lots in store for you: the Helen Challenge, another CFM Happy Hour each month, Quarterly Progress checks in July, another Food as Fuel session in August, some fun with our neighbors Fab'rik & Big Peach Running Co and more Olympic Lifting awesomeness with Cheryl Haworth.
I'm personally looking forward to seeing everyone's progress with the Helen Challenge. I'm also gonna finish settling into my new apartment, take a few weeks vacation next month (part work - USAPL Nationals, the CrossFit Games & a BIZ seminar... and part play - visiting my family & hitting the beach!), and celebrate my birthday in August!
What are your plans for summer? What's important to you between now and Labor Day? Let us know what's important to you this season. Post in the comments. How will you make this your best summer ever?

Congrats to Big Dan F & his wife Nancy on the birth of their BIG 10# BOY, John Jackson, born 6.24.13!
