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.

 WORKOUT OF THE DAY

ANIMAL WARM-UP FRIDAY! 03.22.13

By | WOD | One Comment

Regular classes at 9 10 & 11 + OPEN WOD at noon Saturday!

Come cheer on Team CFM in Open WOD 13.3!
***Note: this is not Open Gym when anyone can come try out the Open WOD. Heats are open to Team CFM competitors, registered in the Open, and Open competitor drop-ins from other boxes who need their performance to be scored/verified.

Chuice & Stronger Faster Healthier

Did you know CFM carries some great products we can order regularly for you?
On the 1st & 15th of each month, we place a Stronger Faster Healthier order. They are our trusted post-workout protein and fish oil partner. The whey protein comes from grass-fed cows, is minimally processed and very clean!
EVERYONE should be getting protein into your system within 45 minutes of a workout to aid in recovery and strength gains.
We offer Pure Whey, Recovery (whey plus added branched chain amino acids, creatine, glucosamine & chondroitin) & Fortified (for adding muscle mass/weight gain) in Natural, Vanilla & Chocolate flavors.
FISH OIL is another supplement I recommend for everyone to take regularly. A high-quality fish oil supplement, high in EPA & DHA fatty acids, is important to help with inflammation caused by workouts, poor diet, stress, sickness, injury, poor sleep, etc, etc. The SFH fish oil is highly concentrated (so you can take less!) and comes in five flavors: chocolate, vanilla, mint, tangerin and lemon. Email us to place a one-time, or a standing order for your fish oil or protein.
CHUICEThe great people from Chuice will be back soon with another round of samples. If you didn't get to try this stuff, it is delicious and ... um... interesting. It's basically "soup in a bottle"/chewy juice filled with lots of fruits & veggies. Let us know if you'd like to order red or green Chuice, in the 16oz or 1/2 gallon size. We can place orders Monday-Thursday for next-day delivery.
As with all Pro Shop purchases, we can just charge your card on file.

WED 03.20.13 Da Neighborhood

It’s A Beautiful Day In the Neighborhood

by Uran
Today marks the would-be birthday of one of my heroes: Mister Fred Rogers. It’s been ten years since we lost this man who brought joy to so many children through his 33-year run on television, and it’s easy to forget the lessons we were taught as kids in his Neighborhood. Life gets busy, and as we get older, we tend to become increasingly hard on ourselves and each other. But it's when we're struggling for success and fighting to stay on top of our game that are the most crucial times to remember his messages of love, respect, gratitude, and hope.
So today, I hope you’ll join me in remembering this man who dedicated his life to giving children the tools to be better people...The man who found positivity in everything and chose to look at the world in a very real, but still very hopeful, way. Take a moment to remember the lessons he taught you. Tell someone you love them. Thank the people who have made you who you are. Remember that you’re special.
And if you’re interested in learning more about Mister Rogers, I encourage you to take a look at this wonderful tribute to his life. Warning: You’ll feel warm and fuzzy afterward, and you might find he still has plenty of lessons to teach you. 🙂

Yoga today at noon with Beth
