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.

October showers...

WE! HAVE! SHOWERS! Two of them, to be exact. We're still in the process of decorating the new bathrooms (don't be too blinded by the very white walls!) but they are fully functional and ready to use for your post-WOD rinse off! Please remember to bring your own towel and toiletries.

So fresh and so clean. Clean.

Glow Stick WOD

Join the 8pm class tonight for a Halloween WOD in the dark with GLOOOOOOW STICKS! This class will not be capped and guests of CFM students are welcome if they RSVP by emailing us... other visitors can also attend if they RSVP and pay the $25 drop-in fee.

Hoodies are in!

Just in time for the chilly weather, our CFM hoodies are here. If you pre-ordered, pick yours up off the counter under the pro shop shelves. If you didn't get your order in, you can still snag one for $45... we ordered a few extra in each size (S, M, L, XL) and can place another order if demand is high. On that note, we'll remind you...
How the Pro Shop works...
1. Pick out your item
2. Grab the clipboard hanging by the pro shop (or on top of the water cooler) and fill out your info: name, item (including size, variety, etc...for example: "XL yoda Tshirt" NOT just "tshirt") and how you'd like to pay (CC on file, cash or check... clip your check or cash behind the order sheet on the clipboard).
3. Enjoy your new purchase. Boom. That was easy.

Throughout November, we'll be collecting non-perishable food items for the Atlanta Food Bank. Please donate a few cans of grub to the cause. Let's fill these barrels and feed the HONGRY.

Showing Up

by Instructor Training Program member Urán
Are you ever intimidated by the WOD when you see the blog posted? Have you ever taken one look at the words “handstand push up”, “pistols” or “rope climbs” and decided to take an impromptu rest day? Or maybe your last WOD left you feeling a little defeated and hesitant to come back in again. If you ever feel this way, you're not alone.
It’s no surprise that CrossFit is challenging. It's designed to be tough and to test you, both mentally and physically. And for most of us, that’s what draws us to it in the first place. But if you find yourself getting caught up wondering how you're going to make it through a particular workout, or talking yourself out of coming in that day, I ask you to just show up. Just walk into the gym, and you’ll be amazed at what you can do.
NOTHING in CrossFit Midtown’s programming is designed to exclude anyone. From the true beginner to the most advanced athlete, there are ways to modify everything to either make it easier or more difficult. And that’s the beauty of it. Challenge yourself on an individual level, but still have the motivation of doing the workout in a group setting. Remember that we’re in this together, so come in and sweat with us!
