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

Retest your Baseline this week!

We're doing this a little differently from past quarters. You choose the day to retest your Baseline, but if you're in the gym this week, YOU MUST RETEST IT! Do it as a warm up any of the days you come in, or do the Baseline as your workout, instead of the regular WOD, or wait until the weekend and retest it on Saturday or during Open Gym on Sunday.

Dunk Truck comes TOMORROW:

Get your body composition tested! Price is $30. Register here.

Goal-setting workshop on Saturday

Join Lis Saturday from 12n-1p to do some goal-setting for the next month, quarter, and/or even the next 1, 5 & 10 years!

Here's some inspiration for today's Olympic Total...

Quarterly Progress Checks

It's time once again to retest several workouts and check our progress over the last three months. Here's what's up this week:
1) Retest your Baseline WOD - we're doing this a little differently from past quarters. You choose the day to retest your Baseline, but if you're in the gym this week, YOU MUST RETEST IT! Do it as a warm up any of the days you come in, or do the Baseline as your workout, instead of the regular WOD, or wait until the weekend and retest it on Saturday or during Open Gym on Sunday.
2) Post your PRs! If you achieve a new Personal Record this week, PLEASE add it to the PR board in the gym AND tell your coach so we can STAR it on the board. This is important data for us to review as we plan the programming for the future.
3) Get your body composition tested. The Dunk Truck will be here Wednesday. This is a great way to track your progress. Body composition is much more important than body weight alone. I weigh the same now as when I started CrossFit, but have lost about 5% body fat and gained muscle. It's $30. Register here.
4) Enjoy the journey! Reflect on the last quarter, set goals for the next quarter, and be proud of how far you've come. We'll do 10 minutes of goal-setting & reflection in the beginning of class on M, T & W. If you'd like to spend some more time setting some goals, writing action steps and deciding how to CRUSH the next quarter, join Lis on Saturday from 12 to 1 for a Goal-Setting Workshop.

Dunk Truck next week!

The Dunk Truck will be here on Wednesday night, to test body composition. You'll wear a swimsuit and get dunked into a giant bathtub (treated for sanitation/up to health code standards), then given your body weight and composition results. A report will be emailed to you. We'll be bringing the Dunk Truck back every quarter to measure our progress!
Schedule your appointment here

Open Gym is Sunday from 12n til 2p.

Spend the rainy weekend in the box! Come kick off Quarterly Progress Check week by getting your Baseline retested and hit one of next week's benchmarks!
