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 11.30.12 Go Dawgs

By | WOD | 2 Comments

Send November out with a BANG!

As my mentor says, don't limp into December and don't limp into 2013! Make the most of today and then let's kick December's B-double-O-T-Y.

Bring-a-Friend Days

Do you have a friend or family member who is dying to try CrossFit but needs a little push? Well in two weeks, they'll get that chance! We're hosting our first Bring-A-Friend days December 13, 14, & 15. So that Thurs, Fri & Sat, you're welcome to bring a friend with you to any class. These classes won't be capped and your class limits don't apply that week IF YOU BRING A FRIEND (so you can earn a few extra visits that week if you bring a friend along to your Thurs, Fri and/or Sat class).
We do ask that you be the host/hostess for your friend that day, so a) you have to join them for the class they attend and b) you can only bring one friend per class. Got two friends who want to visit on Thursday? Well then you get to do TWO CLASSES & TWO WODS that day!

What else is coming up?

TODAY is your last day to donate food to the Atlanta Community Food Bank. We've already filled one barrel and are trying to fill the last one... Bring some non-perishable food items and you get to assign a burpee per item to the coach of your choice!
ORRRRRRR, you can donate to the CFM food drive online. Click here to donate to the CFM Virtual Food Drive, and the CFM coach (or intern! ;)) of your choice will do a burpee...NO MAKE THAT FIVE BURPEES ...for every dollar donated!!!
SUNDAY we're playing touch football in the park at 11am. Meet us at the Piedmont Park active oval to play... all skill levels are welcome!

WED 11.28.12 The Sayers of Nay

The Sayers of Nay

by Coach Jeremy
For those of you making big life changes with CrossFit and the Paleo diet, reinvention is hard--not just for you but for those around you. You’ll hear, “You’re doing what?”... “You’re eating how?”... “That’s not good for you!”... and so on.
So why are people so resistant to your transformation? You’re the one putting in work. They’re not waking up early to hit the gym before work, or turning down the company-sponsored bagel breakfast. You are. You’re putting in work, and a lot of it, which can create mixed emotions for those around you.
Part of the resistance you see is from people genuinely concerned with your well-being. But the overwhelmingly salient reason people resist your reinvention is fear--fear of losing you. Look at cultures and family. The underpinnings of these structures lie in language and food, and you just changed both.
You’re pumped about doing Fran and your heavy snatch and your grass-fed, lettuce-wrapped burger. Who ARE you?
So, how should you deal with this? The easy way is just to stop. Quit CrossFitting. Eat the Standard American Diet.
But nothing worthwhile is ever easy. Reassure loved ones that you are still inherently you. CrossFit won’t change your political ideology or your religious beliefs. It will, however, make you a stronger, healthier and happier person.
You can only spend so much energy pleasing everyone. Just be yourself, and with time friends will accept these new ‘strange ways’ as part of you... just one of those things that makes you more lovable and quirky.
