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.

Grand Opening Day - Saturday, June 16th:

Fran Challenge Prelims during AM classes
Party time - 5-8 pm in the box
Members, mark your calendars now as YOU GUYS are the guests of honor at our Grand Opening Celebration. If you're not already a FAN of CrossFit Midtown on Facebook, please become one so we can keep you in the loop!

Have you read the gym rules? If not, please check them out now. At least two were violated last week!

Reminders: Put the toilet seat down AND if you're contagious, DON'T COME TO THE BOX!


05.19.12 – PYROBAR

By | Uncategorized | No Comments


A. 3RM Back Squat

B. PYROBAR - Your shoulders will be on FI-YA!
CFM's first original benchmark WOD, named for the amazing building blocks of our box:
3 Rounds:
3 wall climbs
6 handstand push ups
9 toes to bar
12 pull ups

CELEBRITY SIGHTING! That vampire from Twilight (James) coaching that famous photographer (Carlos) to new squat clean and C&J PRs!


Every Sunday for the past few weeks, we meet at the park for a FREE WOD, open to the public (and suitable for all activity levels). This is your chance to exercise in the great outdoors, drag that friend along who doesn't understand CrossFit, and play outside with your new CFM friends.
Come on out Sunday at 10 am, and stay to play HOOVERBALL afterward at 11. This week we'll meet by the sand volleyball courts in the Piedmont Park active oval. Come for the WOD and stay for HooverBall, or pick one or the other. Either way, we'd love to see you there!
The closest parking is on the streets off Piedmont, west of the park (13th, 12th, 11th) or in the parking deck off Monroe. BUT YOU SHOULD REALLY JUST JOG OR RIDE A BIKE THERE! Check the CFM FB page for an update if there's inclement weather.

A. Gymnastics Skill Work - 10 minutes
Pick a skill you need practice on - rope climb footwork, muscle ups, ring holds, L-sits, handstands, handstand walks, kipping pull-ups - and work on it for 10 minutes. If you're not sure, ask your coach and he/she will help you choose.

B. 15 min AMRAP
10 walking lunges (10 ea leg)
10 kettlebell swings 53/35
20 double unders
If you feel beaten down from this week of training, take this WOD at about 70-80%. Easy pace, never gassed, short breaks between movements and rounds. If you feel good, go for it.
Rx+ - each movement UB. Don't move on until you do the reps unbroken.

BROMANCE! That's Dan on the left and Drew Vabulas/Vabs on the right. Yes, his name rhymes with FABULOUS. Awesome, right?


It's the end of your first ever week of CrossFit for some of you - your first week back to regular training for others. So how are you feeling? Are you feeling strong? Energized? Excited about making progress? Or are you super sore? Achy? Irritable? Worn down?

If you say yes to more of the latter than the former choices, you need to take better care of yourself outside the box.

We can help you while you're here, but the other 23 hours of the day are equally important. Make sure you get plenty of sleep (in a DARK room...even light from the alarm clock can disturb your sleep), limit your stress, drink plenty of water, take fish oil, AND EAT WELL - start making the transition to paleo - get the CRAP out of your diet! Limit alcohol, sugar, grains, legumes and dairy.

Need help with paleo? Jasmine and Lis are teaching a FOOD AS FUEL class on Sat, June 9 from noon-1:30. It's free to members and we'll answer all your questions and share some great tactics for making the paleo lifestyle sustainable for you. Email info@crossfitmidtown.com to reserve your spot.
