2011-01-112387
Closed again Thursday morning. 

All our morning trainers, including Mike K., Brent W., and Dan M. are still trapped in their neighborhoods.  No snow melt today, so conditions Thursday morning will be as bad as they were Wednesday morning.  Temperatures are expected to get very slightly above freezing Thursday, so perhaps we can resume normal morning operations on Friday.

News Update: Regular Hours resume tomorrow morning at 6 AM with the fabulous Mike K.

What do you think of the naked butt pictures at crossfit.com Wednesday?

The 2011 CrossFit Games: July 29-31 at the Home Depot Center with a $1 Million total purse and $250K first prize thanks to Reebok.

    Still stuck at my house. Did the row/push-up AMRAP Wednesday night (have a concept II at the house): 6 rounds + 250m of rowing.

    Personally, I was not offended by the “mooning” HQ photo at all. I thought it was hilarious and its just glutes…… Definitely a surprise(knowing majority of CF community ideology/beliefs…..) but still gave me a good laugh. I do understand some of the negative comments but only agree to a small extend. I am not Big Brother and I don’t have the right to censor opinions/speech. Now, if the photo violates HQ website policy then we have a problem. The question here should be …. Did the photo violate any policy?
    I just have a suggestion …. everyone should have a tan before taking the photo … pale glutes scares me….. LOL …. You can NEVER please everyone. I know this first hand because I am in the show business!
    Cheers y’all and watch out for those pesky icy surface!!

    Taking semi-nude pictures of people in order to promote attention? Why, that’s the most original thing I think I have ever seen.

    This is a complete fail on Crossfit’s part in regards to equal opportunity. Clearly there should’ve been more women. I’m not mad, just dissapointed. Frankly, I expected more out of Crossfit. Next time, full frontal nudity WOD of double-unders, KTE, and box-jumps.

    YEAH finally equal opportunity sexual harassment !!!! It’s so nice to see more MAN butt than girl butt- ( although that chick has a killer ass) …but I agree with Alan – while I am not personally offended – there are others that may be .. and CrossFit is expanding- so they may want to use discretion on these types of things .. Perhaps they could have put a censored one up with BARS and then a click thru for the “UNCENSORED” version. the pic still would have been funny and a lot of people would have been less offended

    i love the fact, that as crossfit is growing, that it serves notice that it will not become a homogonized, careful not to offend, corporate, dull organization. i don’t think this was the intention but all the people who are offended should take note that their offense probably won’t (and shouldn’t in my opinion) change a thing. you don’t have the right to not be offended

    Lots of people that were offended kept mentioning “the children.” Personally, I am sick of these overprotective helicopter parents that are trying to shield their children from everything in life. It’s a butt. We all have one. It’s a funny picture and I don’t see what the big deal is. If you want a corporate, cookie cutter gym website, go join LA Fitness or something similar.

    Anyone know how the roads from 10th/14th to the gym (Howell Mill and/or Huff, Chattahoochee) are?
    Is it still recommended that if you do not “need” to drive, one should not?

    I agree.
    F children! I can’t stand those little things. They’re so pure and obnoxious.

    I agree with Steph and Ryan. its butts! Everything offends someone, somewhere. I see this pic and see a handful of people intending to be funny. The humor is not intended to be crude, offensive, or anything other than innocent. Anyone that takes offense to this is looking to see the worst in what is a harmless picture. As for children, how is a bare butt or even full frontal nudity offensive for a child? Children dont interpret a naked human form in any sort of sexually offensive, or inappropriate way unless an “offended” adult relates it to them in such a way. If this were pornographic in nature, then it would cease to be innocent and then I could understand people getting offended.
    I had no concept of racism or racial prejudice until I learned about it in school…
    I think the message in this ad is far worse than any message that might be interpreted from bare asses on a pullup bar http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=496Kp_AUdRs
    On a lighter note, I will be in tomorrow for regular morning an lunch hours! Hope to see everyone in the am if you can safely make it

    I will be there for lunch workout. Let’s hope I-20 is all cleared. There was a massive jam heading west bound — not pretty at all.
    You will be proud of me today. I created a METCON for myself — 250m row/ 10,9,8,7….1 45# OHS alternate with 1,2,3,4…10 Burpees/ 250m row. Completed time 9:40. I could have gone heavier but you know I am a sand bagger…. seriously, thinking of my lousy OHS form for now.
    I am tackling my weak skills… new year’s resolutions baby!
    Pale butts scares me ……. makes me curl up in a ball and cry…..

    I live right off 10th St and drove to the gym Tuesday and yesterday with no problems whatsoever (if you don’t count the shitty Atlanta drivers, but those are around even when there’s no snow)
