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.

 WORKOUT OF THE DAY

FRI 05.03.13 CrossFit Total!

By | Quarterly Progress Checks, WOD | No Comments

Quarterly Progress Checks wrap up...

Be sure to retest your Baseline by Sunday. We're also starting a new strength cycle next week, so it's important to learn your maxes so you'll have numbers to work from beginning next week. We'll be lifting based on a percentage of your max, so get those maxes done this week!
Tomorrow is a make-up day and Sunday is Open Gym 12n-2p so use these chances to get in and make up a benchmark you missed this week.

Retest your Baseline (if you haven't already)!

For time:
500m row
40 squats
30 abmat situps
20 hand-release push ups
10 pull ups

Workout of the Day

CrossFit Total:
Find your 1 rep max (in order) of:
Back squat
Strict press
Deadlift

Add the three numbers together for your CrossFit Total score!

And coming tomorrow...

Make-up Day
Choose a benchmark you missed earlier this week to make it up. Top priorities to retest are Baseline, CrossFit Total & Olympic Total. Good luck!


05.02.13 Raise your game!

Step your game up

A year ago, CrossFit Midtown was about to officially open for business. The past year has been the toughest and most educational one of my life. So many challenges and opportunities and amazing people have entered my life. So as our first anniversary nears, of course I've spent a lot of time reflecting on how far CFM has already come in such a short time.
But I'm also committed to continue making it better and better. Our community - YOU GUYS - coming in to the gym day after day - busting your butts for PRs, sweating out every last rep, working to improve each day - constantly inspires the CFM team to work harder for you and provide even better coaching, programming, accountability, and community events!
If you're around the box today, you'll meet my dear friend Jen, who I had the great fortune to meet over a year ago. Now-CFM student Carlos introduced me to The BIZ a year and half ago when I was working at another gym. He knew of the BIZ through his old box, CrossFit Los Angeles. Carlos encouraged me to apply to become a BIZ intern back in November 2011. I later joined their team and still work for them as a featured blogger.
Since working with the BIZ, I've been introduced to an amazing community of CrossFit affiliate owners who inspire and push each other to raise our game regularly. The better businesses we run, the more lives we can improve through CrossFit.
The BIZ community is a lot like the community in a CrossFit gym. Just like my colleagues encourage me to do better every day & month & year, I encourage you to do the same.
Continue working hard in the gym. Be proud of your progress and keep raising your game. You are all an inspiration to me, to your coaches and to your classmates.
What inspires you on a daily basis? How will you raise your game this month? Please share your thoughts in the comments...

Why Row?

by Uran
As most of you probably know, I lead the rowing class on Wednesdays at 7 PM. I’ve seen a subset of the CFM family in my class and heard plenty of interest expressed, but for those of you who haven't tried it yet, you may be wondering why you should use one of your weekly classes on “just rowing”.
Most of you don’t plan on jumping in an eight boat and rowing down the Chattahoochee any time soon, but if you’ve been in the CrossFit space for a little while, you’ve probably noticed that rowing on the erg comes up a fair amount in the programming. And for good reason. It’s a full-body, low-impact workout that uses large muscle groups over a long range of motion. It is both metabolically challenging and mentally demanding. And finally, correct form on the rower is a great development tool for your Oly lifting technique as the primary drivers for the rowing stroke are the legs and opening of the hips.
Don’t let your power and potential be wasted by improper technique! Come check out the class, and see how you can improve your rowing form. I review technique drills before every workout, so you will get a sense of where you currently stand and learn some things to practice any time you see rowing pop up in the regular programming.
