Unleash Your Inner Champion

Unleash Your Inner Champion


Test You Limits. Then Break Them!

We invite you to take on the 7 week Championship Challenge.

The Lurong Living Championship Challenge was created to accomplish 3 main goals.

First, it is a service to our members to provide a platform to track nutrition, set goals, and be accountable for working out regularly. The Challenge also lets our coaches at CFM focus on doing what we do best: coaching, inspiring, and encouraging our members to reach the next level.

Second, the Challenge offers the opportunity for CrossFitters to compete on the same playing field, no matter their skill level, athletic prowess, or experience. The weighted scoring system balances 3 primary categories: diet, performance, and improvement. You can be confident that all members of our gym will be challenged and be pushed to reach new levels.

The third reason. We participate in the Lurong Living Championship Challenge to unify our community. Not only can all levels of athletes compete together but our gym will be competing against other gyms from across the country. At the same time, you will know that your brothers and sisters are going through the same challenge and lifestyle changes as you.

We are all in this together, and the Challenge and online platform is methodically designed to help us see real, sustainable change in our body, health, and performance!!

Workout To Remember

Workout To Remember

31Heroes WOD Hosted by CrossFit Midtown

This WOD was created specifically to honor the 30 men and one dog that gave their lives for our country on August 6, 2011. It is 31 minutes long—one minute in remembrance of each hero. The rep scheme is 8-6-11—the date of their ultimate sacrifice. Finally, this is a partner WOD. The men who gave their lives were from multiple branches of our military, working together as a team. In the workout you and your team member will constantly be taking the load from each other providing much needed support and relief. We realize that no physical sacrifice made during a workout can come close to the sacrifice our brave heroes made, but we consider this WOD a CrossFitters “moment of silence.” This is how we can honor those that gave all in the name of freedom.

Sign up to participate in the WOD on Saturday, August 6th from 9am-12pm. For more details, to help fund raise, or to donate to the cause click here.
