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.

Don't I come here to check out?
During yesterday's shuttle runs I told Geoff and Alison they had to calculate their interval times during their rest break.
They joked with me about having to do math during the WOD.
"Don't I come here to check out?" asked Geoff.
The answer is no. Maybe in your globo gym day you put on your headphones, hopped on the treadmill or elliptical, and stared at the TVs, tuning out as the minutes passed until your cardio was done.
At CrossFit Midtown, you're here to learn and improve as an athlete. So don't plan on "checking out" while you're here. YES, we want you to leave work/stress/family life/etc at the door, but you do need to focus.
Be present. Focus on the skills we're working on that day, and devote this time to improving your health and fitness. And keep up the great work!
