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.

Whatcha doin' this weekend?


Saturday classes - 9, 10, 11 am
We're not strictly enforcing class levels just yet, so join us for any of the three classes to make up a WOD you missed this week.

Food as Fuel - Saturday at noon

Join Chef Richard from Pre-Made Paleo as he shares some samples and some cooking tips. Then Jasmine and Lis will get into some Q&A and tips on how to eat better, look better and feel better!

Free WOD at Lululemon Howell Mill - Sunday at 10
Lululemon, the Canadian activewear company (and maker of every pair of shorts Lis owns), is opening a location right down the street and they invited CFM to be a part of opening weekend! Join us Sunday for a free WOD at 10 am.

HOOVERBALL at Piedmont Park - Sunday at 11:30
Last week was OFF THE CHAIN. Join us at the Piedmont Park sand volleyball courts to play Hooverball again this week at 11:30am.

What is Hooverball, you ask? Here's some more info, but all you REALLY need to know is it's an awesome game with lots of laughs and SO MUCH FUN! Come play on Sunday and see for yourself.

6am class was HOPPIN' yesterday with James, Lynn, Kenley, Anna, and (not pictured) Rocky.

Workout of the Day

A. 10 minutes gymnastics skill work
Your coach will give you some ideas...options include ring work (l-sits, dips, holds, muscle ups, iron cross, levers), handstand work (holds, wall climbs/walks, HSPU, HSPU negatives), pull up work (flex arm holds, negatives, strict), rope climbs, etc
B. Death by 10 Meters:
Start with one 10 m Run.
Increase by one 10m run, every minute on the minute until you run out of time to complete all reps.

So the first minute is 1-10 M sprint. The second minute is 2-10 M sprints, the third is 3-10 M sprints and so on until you can’t complete X number of sprints in 1 minute. Your score is the number of rounds you successfully complete in one minute.

I saw you drinking beer at Summerfest

...so when you ask me where your ab muscles are, my answer is: under all that liquid gluten.
Okay, okay, I'm not saying you can never drink (or eat a cupcake, or have Mexican) again.
But if you have goals to get leaner, feel, look and/or perform better, you'll need to enjoy those indulgences a little less often.

So how can you eat better and still live your life?

Join us Saturday at noon for some snacks courtesy of Pre-Made Paleo as we answer the following questions:
What are some easy paleo recipes?
What do I eat for breakfast?
How do I stick to paleo when I'm traveling/entertaining clients/at a party?
What are some paleo-friendly restaurants in Atlanta?
How much protein should I be eating?
What should I do about post-workout nutrition?

IF YOU'RE ATTENDING, AND WANT SOME FEEDBACK ON YOUR NUTRITION: keep a food log for the next two to three days OF EVERYTHING YOU PUT IN YOUR MOUTH, and we'll discuss them on Saturday. Yes, even Lis and Jasmine will be sharing what they ate this week. If you're food log-shy... or lazy... no worries... join us anyway.
