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

TUES 03.04.13 CrossFit Open starts tomorrow!

By | CrossFit Games, WOD | 14 Comments

CrossFit Open starts tomorrow!

The first workout will be unveiled at 8pm tomorrow night. We'll be doing the WODs as a TEAM, Saturdays at 12noon. But in the event you're out of town or can't make it one Saturday, you have a few options:
1) Email Lis to schedule a make-up time (options are Thurs night at 8p, Fri morning at 7a, or Sunday during Open Gym, 12-2).
2) Visit another box to do the Open WOD. Most other CrossFit gyms will also be hosting the Open WODs and can validate your score.

So what are you waiting for? If you have questions, post them in the comments. You have until Sunday to join the competition and complete the first workout. Join the fun!

We're also making a team shirt (see below), so let us know in the comments if you want one. We'll place the order Wednesday. They're $25 or $20 for Open competitors.

Raise your game!

I'm lucky to be involved with a mentoring & accountability group (the BIZ) of CrossFit affiliate owners who support, challenge & inspire each other regularly to step our games up with a goal of helping more people improve their lives with CrossFit.
Three times a year, we get together for BIZ workshops and this past weekend's gathering was in Dallas, Texas. I had a great weekend of hanging with good friends and learning how to develop the CrossFit Midtown staff into a stronger team of individuals better equipped to help YOU, our students.
I hope you all have similarly inspiring groups of people in your lives who push you every day to raise your game.
YOU: the CFM students... are very inspiring to me. So is our staff at CFM.
So I want to take this chance to thank everyone on our team who helps CFM run on a day-to-day basis. I never guessed that 9 1/2 months into running CFM, I'd be able to take back-to-back weekends away from the gym to attend a dear friend's wedding and then the BIZ seminar.
Big thanks to our coaches, yoga teachers, staff, Instructor Training Program members & interns: Dan, Dyer, Beka, Cassie, Walter, Don, Amy, Uran, Beth, Monica, Alicia, Tirzah, Lindsay, Jon DLP, Erin, Matt, Levy... YOU ROCK!
Keep up the great work gang... let's make this an awesome March!

03.01.13 Minimalist March

March challenge: cut down the clutter

This month, I challenge you to cut down on stuff... clutter... junk. Whether it be virtual clutter in the form of an overflowing email inbox, or just cleaning out your closet, let's cut down on clutter in our lives. You'd be surprised what peace of mind it gives you to simplify your life. I just sorted/deleted/archived and have almost conquered my email inbox (100 more in the archives to sort) and the past week has been much more productive because of it.
See if you can get rid of something every day this month. What will you tackle first?

Bring-a-Friend Days next week

Every quarter, we invite your friends to join us for three special days of workouts planned specially to give everyone of every fitness level a great workout. It's a chance for your friends to see what the CrossFit fuss is all about!
Next Thursday, Friday & Saturday (3/7-3/9), we're ready to host 20 students per class (14 CFM students & 6 guests). Please help spread the word!
Guests can reserve a space in class by emailing FRIENDS@crossfitmidtown.com. We'll email back to confirm which class they can join.
Along with kicking off our first CrossFit Open ever, with WOD 13.1 next Saturday at noon, AND the Olympic Lifting seminar next Sunday, it's bound to be an amazing weekend. Don't miss it!

CROSSFIT OPEN ATHLETE COUNT: 22!
