HAPPY ANIMAL WARM-UP FRIDAY!

We wish you all a fabulous weekend. For everyone enjoying Music Midtown, be safe & have fun! We should totally play some Animal or Dog Days or Monkey Wrench in class today… name those artists.

Hooverball, free WOD & yoga in the park!

As usual, we’re playing hooverball this Sunday on the Piedmont Park sand volleyball courts at 10am. Come out to play. It’s easy to learn and a great time!!
Next Sunday, we’re moving our monthly community WOD from lululemon howell mill to the park. Meet at the sand volleyball courts at 10am for a warm-up and free WOD (open to the public, suitable for all fitness/skill levels) followed by our weekly Hooverball game.
THEN, Sunday night at 5:30, let’s head back to Piedmont Park to join our friends at lululemon howell mill for 10th & Flow, a huge donation-based yoga event at Piedmont Park, raising funds for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta’s Strong4Life… an organization fighting childhood obesity.

Yoga is also coming to CFM, Wednesdays at 1:15pm

CrossFitters need yoga. We can all benefit from being more mobile, mindful and having better body control. That’s why we’re psyched to announce that CrossFit Midtown will be adding yoga classes to our regular schedule. Eventually, we aim to offer four classes a week at various times, but we’re starting with one.
When: Wednesdays at 1:15pm beginning next week on 9/26 (by the end of the year we plan to regularly offer other yoga classes including week night and weekend options)
Where: In the box
Who can attend?: All CFM students are welcome to attend. This will count as one of your regular weekly classes, so you will check in as usual. Guests are also welcome to join the class for a $20 drop-in fee.
Who’s teaching?:Beth was the first student to register at CrossFit Midtown! Aside from being #1, she’s also a talented yoga instructor, so I am thrilled to add her class to the CFM schedule!

Jump Rope Seminar at CFM on Oct 20th

Molly Metz, world jump-rope champion (yes, apparently they have competitions for that stuff!) and viral video legend (see her video of 10-minutes non-stop double unders below), is coming to CFM on Saturday, October 20 for a jump-rope workshop from 9 to 11 am. You’ll be a double under pro after she’s done with you. Cost is $45. Register here.
