You do not need to get in shape BEFORE signing up for our programs:
IT IS OUR JOB TO GET YOU IN GREAT SHAPE, AND WE LOVE OUR JOB!
Often when people hear “CrossFit” and “BootCamp” they think - “I need to get in decent shape before I could ever do those things!”
At our gym, nothing could be further from the truth. We’ve been helping people of all fitness levels in get in the best shape of their lives for over 20 years. We have the experience and knowledge of what it takes to properly help beginners.
You’ll feel the welcoming environment we’ve created for people who have never worked out before or have had a long layoff from working out. We are different from other gyms. We’ve made it our mission to make all programs accessible to every level of client.
Can we help intermediate and advanced athletes? Of course we can, and we do! These folks need a much different approach to coaching.
We foster an environment that is helpful and encouraging so that no one ever feels intimidated or that they are holding up the group.
Please, do yourself a favor. Come on by and try us. We promise that your experience will be positive. We won’t beat you down to “build you back up again.” Does this mean that it will be easy if you are a beginner... no. But we will scale the workouts to suit your level so you can feel successful every single time you come to class, and you will see amazing results.

Whether you’re bored with your usual workout routine, suffering from a case of gym-phobia, or just looking for a new and different fitness challenge, you’ve come to the right place for the best Atlanta CrossFit gym. CrossFit is designed to provide a great workout for all kinds of people at all fitness levels – from newbies to seasoned athletes. Developed by legendary fitness expert Greg Glassman after years in the coaching business, CrossFit uses a series of basic-yet-effective moves – pushing, pulling, squatting, jumping, lifting, and rowing... – in an endlessly-varied series of combinations. The workouts that we do are scalable to EVERYONE’S individual abilities - even those who have never trained can do CrossFit. If you are a committed individual regardless of your experience, then this is the program for you. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change the program. The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree, but not kind. Military, Police Officers, skiers, cyclist, businessmen, students, grandparents and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.
CrossFit Improves all aspects of fitness
Our short workouts will improve all aspects of your fitness including strength, endurance, stamina, agility, balance, speed, power, flexibility, coordination and accuracy. In short CrossFit is constantly varied, functional movement preformed at a high intensity. What is “constantly varied”? Constantly varied means that it is ever-changing and that nothing is the same. Routine becomes the enemy. We need to strive to have capacity in everything we do and to expose ourselves to things that we don’t like to do. What is a “functional movement”? Functional movements are compound movements, meaning they are multi-joint movements. They are safe, natural, effective, and efficient locomotors of body and external objects. They work our bodies from core to extremity. However, no aspect of functional movement is more important than being able to move large loads over long distances, and to do so quickly. What is “high intensity”? High intensity is defined as a lot of work done over a little bit of time. Intensity is almost always the independent variable and is individually defined. Over time your intensity will increase. Intensity is the variable that will give you results. To learn more about the providers of our Atlanta crossfit gym (AK CrossFit), check out Our Partners.
