Hydrostatic Body Composition testing is Mon, July 30

For everyone who wants to "lose weight," LISTEN UP. Your scale weight means NOTHING. As you get into CrossFit, your body composition will begin to change as you lose fat and gain muscle. These changes aren't always reflected on the scale, so we're bringing in the Mobile Hydrostatic Body Composition unit to give you a good measuring point. Every two to three months, we'll schedule another testing day so you can track your progress.
What should I expect? This big truck will come park behind the gym. You'll enter the truck, check in with Bali, and use the changing room to change into a swimsuit. Then you'll be weighed. There's a large bathtub on-board the truck, which you will dunk yourself in three times as the computer takes a reading of your body composition. Then you'll dry off and Bali will give you a printed report and discuss your results with you.
How do I sign up? Email Sam to schedule your appointment or sign up in the gym. Appointments take 10 minutes. We have availability every 10 minutes from 4pm until 7pm. The test is $30. You can pay with your CC on file, cash or check (payable to CrossFit Midtown). More info about hydrostatic body composition testing.

FRANDAY THE 13TH! Athlete Profile – Crystal Kadakia

By | Uncategorized | 7 Comments

Crystal building those pipes. She's developing great arm muscles since starting CrossFit!

Athlete Profile - Crystal Kadakia


Hometown: Austin, TX
Age: 25
Occupation: Career Indulgence Coaching Company Owner, Training Manager at Procter and Gamble
When did you first start CrossFitting?: April 2012
Favorite WOD/Least Favorite WOD: don't know yet
Three words to describe you: Driven, Straightforward, Always Growing
Tell us about your sports & fitness background: I've always done fitness things that are more fun than fitness - indoor rock climbing, shooting around a basketball, canoeing/kayaking, hiking, salsa dancing. This is the first time I'm making a regular commitment to working out.
How did you first get exposed to CrossFit? Take us back to your first WOD... what was it, and how did it feel? I contact Lis, on recommendation by my chiropractor, Dr. Cohen, as someone who could help me get back my strength and understood past medical issues. I've had a lot of wrist pain and fatigue - Lis was my personal trainer for the first 2 months and now I have switched to the group classes. My first WOD I can't quite recall it, but I remember feeling like it was easy in the moment, but later I was definitely sore! That's when I knew I'd found a good workout.
What sort of changes have you seen in your body, health and fitness since starting CF (before/after)? My arms actually have muscle on them! My calves have grown as well. The other great benefit is that I feel like I have more energy and I'm more conscious about what I eat.
What sort of changes in your life have you experienced out of taking on something like CrossFit that were totally unexpected? Liking the people I work out with - I didn't realize what a community experience CrossFit is. Additionally, the nutrition advice I've gotten is really great and tailored to what I specifically need.
Please share with us any favorite CrossFit / CFM moments: Doing The Wobble at the CFM grand opening party. That was great.
Any advice for people just getting started? Don't be afraid to say you need to modify a workout. Everyone at CrossFit is focused on getting what they need for themselves - you don't have to compete with others and you can grow at your own pace.
What are your hobbies, interests and/or talents outside of CrossFit? Lots - entrepreneurship, coaching, learning new skills, reading, writing, all the stuff I had mentioned earlier in terms of the outdoors, billiards, music.

HOOVERBALL is a GO for Sunday!


Although Hooverb-All-Stars Lis, Carlos and Fred will all be in LA at the CrossFit Games, SUNDAY HOOVERBALL MUST GO ON! Our beloved Ninjon has stepped in as captain for the week. He'll be there ready to play on Sunday at 10 am. Meet him at the Piedmont Park sand volleyball courts. Be there!
