Today is CFM's 7th birthday!

Thanks to the entire CFM community for training with us over the years.
Whether you joined recently, or back in May 14th of 2012 when we opened the doors, THANK YOU for building the CFM community.
We've enjoyed coaching you, PR-ing with you, grinding through tough WODs together and just helping Midtown Atlanta become a fitter community.

There's a lot of CrossFit action happening throughout our Anniversary weekend, and we hope you can join us for some of the fun starting Thursday with our Bring-A-Friend Day and Candlelight Yoga! This Saturday we'll be here at CFM for our Annual Kessel Run WOD in the morning and then the 7th Anniversary party from 1-5 pm with some food catered by the wonderful Marlow's Tavern, cold drinks, all your friends, fun games, and some good times.
