Quick History of CrossFit Atlanta:

History

CrossFit Atlanta is the oldest CrossFit affiliate in Georgia, and for almost 2 years we were the only one. We began with Saturday afternoon meet ups in the fall of 2005 in the backyard of Dan MacDougald. At that time very few people had even heard of CrossFit.

Early Days At The Shed

In January, 2006 we took a “Field of Dreams” plunge and opened up in a small warehouse space (1400 sq feet) on Watkins Street, where we remained until November, 2008.

In 2008 we moved into a 5,000 square foot facility on Chattahoochee Ave, shown below.

We outgrew that space and in 2013 we moved a short distance to our current 10,000 sq. ft. facility at Permalume Place, just off Chattachoochee Ave. CrossFit in the metro Atlanta area has grown from our one gym to over 150 CrossFit Affiliate gyms at last count, many of which were started with our help, and we remain committed, as always, to spreading the reach of what we believe is the best general fitness program in existence.
