Here at CrossFit Atlanta, we’re proud to provide free consultations to anyone interested in starting their fitness journey with us.

Lets face it finding a program thats speaks to you and your goals is hard and sticking with one is even more difficult. How many times have you started something and not even a few weeks later life gets in the way and you never go back?

That’s why we want to bring you in for a free 1-on-1 assessment. We want to know more about you, your life, why you want to get fit and where we fit into the picture, we want to know what we can do to hold you accountable and how we can develop a plan of action to ensure you get fit for good this time!

You’re probably thinking; I’m not in shape enough for this yet and I don’t know anyone at CrossFit Atlanta and I’m really nervous to just walk in the door! Don’t worry about a thing, because you’ll find that at CrossFit Atlanta we maintain a lighthearted and welcoming atmosphere that caters to regular people just like you! So much so that a ton of our members just hang around all day calling MadLab School of Fitness their second or even third home!

Sign up for a complementary assessment, because just walking in the door is the biggest hurdle to your success!


Meet Your Coach For Life

Introduction to Your New Coach for life

Lets face it, you’re destined to fail if you don’t have someone in your corner backing you up every step of the day. Big box gyms bank on you never using your membership, but we want to see you here each and every week making continued progress toward your personalized goals.

This is where your coach for life comes in and saves the day! You’ll meet this person during your assessment and your coach for life will work with you to understand exactly what motivates you and how you can work together to ensure you keep coming back and continue to achieve incredible progress.

If you fall off track expect a call from your coach asking where you’ve been and encouraging you to get back in the doors. Simply starting and falling off track then never coming back just doesn’t happen at CrossFit Atlanta. We are 100% committed to your success and well being!


Step 2: The Fundamentals Course

CrossFit is hard in several respects. First, the mechanics of the movements must be mastered, then you will be asked to push yourself because high intensity exercise is proven to elicit quicker and much more profound positive results in every aspect of fitness than low intensity exercise. Second, all exercise movements, including the ones we use, have potential to cause injury if done from incorrect posture or with incorrect technique. We have been around longer than any CrossFit gym in Georgia and we have tried every imaginable method of getting new folks ready for group classes, and years ago we discovered that nothing works as well and as safely as personal training. Therefore, we don’t allow folks into group workouts until they are ready.   Fast tracking you into group workouts before you’re ready is definitely cheaper, but it’s also a recipe for confusion, disappointment, and injury.  Personal training will teach you what you need to know to get the best experience in groups, and establishes a relationship with your coach that can help you solve problems that come up in groups.  Getting ready for groups is rarely a matter of cardio fitness, more often there is a need to learn new and unfamiliar movements, and to get consistent at doing them correctly.  And we often find mobility/flexibilty restrictions which need to be fixed in order to allow correct posture and correct movement. The formula is (1) first learn correct movement technique, (2) next become consistent with correct movement, (3) then and only then add intensity.

Our Fundamentals Course normally consists at least 10 sessions. Pricing is $750 for 10 sessions of 1 on 1, or $600 per person for 10 sessions of 1 on 2 (you supply your training partner). We won’t release you to group training until you are ready. If you require more than 10 sessions, additional sessions will be priced at the same per session rate. If you need less, the price will be adjusted pro rata.  Each personal training session lasts about 1 hour. The sessions are by appointment and can accommodate almost any schedule. Each session will introduce new movements and review movements from previous sessions. Each session will have a workout, stretching, and cool down. The first session is free.

Step3: Group Class

STEP 3: Group Classes

Sign Up Now to Get Started

GroupNewOnce you’re competent in the movements or have learned the progressions and scaling options for the movements and have reached the graduation benchmarks, you are ready to begin group classes!

During group classes, you’ll make new friends and push yourself as you sweat it out with like-minded individuals.  And some days we simply practice movement skills. You’ll reach new physical and emotional levels you didn’t think were possible,  and you will find yourself with a support network that will help you stay on the path to greater health and happiness.

During group classes, you will have an on-the-floor coach, but your Fundamentals coach will also be your on-going coach for as long as you remain a member, and that coach is always available to answer questions, hold you accountable, even give you a refresher private training class if needed.

Skills Evaluation

Sign Up Now to Get Started

Sometimes we allow people to skip some or all of the Fundamentals Course. These are folks who are already proficient in the Olympic lifts: Snatch and Clean & Jerk, in body weight gymnastic stuff like pull-ups, dips, push-ups, handstands, etc, have a reasonable base of cardio-respiratory endurance, and who have no mobility/flexibility restrictions that need correction. Many D1 college and high school athletic programs provide exposure to cut-down variations of the Olympic lifts: Power Cleans and Power Snatches. We teach the full versions: Squat Clean & Jerk, and Squat Snatch, just like you see at the Olympic Games. Our experience is that many great athletes with exposure to the baby versions of the O-lifts have not been taught correctly. Unfortunately, we’ve also found that people coming from other CrossFit gyms are not always ready for our group sessions without going through some one on one training. So, no one gets a pass straight into the group sessions without an evaluation.

This is a free 1 on 1 session lasting approximately one hour. To schedule an appointment for a Skill Evaluation, please fill out the form to the right, and add a comment to say you want the Skill Evaluation.
