Is CrossFit for everyone?
The beauty of CrossFit is that workouts can be scaled to fit each individual’s fitness level. Whether you are a beginning or advanced athlete, CrossFit can effectively improve your fitness. Technical instruction is critical to ensure athletes perform movements safely and efficiently, and that is where CrossFit Terminus sets itself apart from many other CrossFit facilities. Technical instruction is our expertise.
There are a lot of CrossFit gyms in the Atlanta area. What differentiates CrossFit Terminus?
This is a hard question to answer. Every gym is unique and has its own personality (for lack of a better word). At Terminus we are serious about training, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously. We are sticklers for technique and passionate about technical instruction, but if you come in with an open mind and are ready to commit to continuous improvement, we promise you will see results.
We can say without a doubt that one of our strengths is the quality of coaching you will receive when you become a member of our community. Our coaching staff has helped both casual exercisers and competitive athletes improve their lives through fitness. But don’t take our word for it — browse through some of the stories our members have to tell about their Terminus experience.
The best way to find out if Terminus is what you are looking for is to arrange a visit. Our Saturday classes (8:30, 9:30 and 10:30 AM) are particularly good for getting to know us and experience what Terminus is all about. We love to meet new people, so feel free to contact us to setup a visit!

How do I become a member of CrossFit Terminus?
At Crossfit Terminus, we have an intentional structure of on-boarding to give you long lasting results, a supportive community, and something to look forward to on a daily basis. Whether you are trying out Crossfit for the first time, or are an old hand at functional fitness, we have an onboarding process for you.
New to Crossfit:
Many of those who walk through our doors are experiencing Crossfit for the first time. It can be overwhelming to see rowers, pull-up bars, rings, and barbells being used by a class, all with music blaring and coaches shouting encouragement. With that in mind, we have created a personalized process to ease you into things.
Your first class will include having your own individual coach leading you through the experience. You will join a larger class of 5-15 people, and workout with and alongside them. The group will have a head coach leading them in the workout. You will have your own personal coach to answer any questions, correct form, and explain terms and cues.
After your first class, you will have 10 personalized sessions with a coach to learn the foundational movements. These 10 sessions will be split between one-on-one work, and additional experiences with inside class. Throughout the whole process you will have your dedicated coach assigned to you.
Following the 10 sessions, you will have a consultation with your trainer to discuss if you are ready to hop into regular class without a dedicated coach to help you. From there you will either sign up for additional sessions, or become a member of the gym.
Please contact us to get started.
Every Crossfit gym is different. Coaching styles, programming, equipment, culture, and community are all different. With that in mind, we like to create an experience where you can get a true feel for the Terminus experience before you sign up. We also like to make sure that the experience and knowledge needed to succeed in our program is present.
With that intention, experienced Crossfitters looking to join our gym will schedule a free trial class with a trainer. They will jump into a group class of 5-15 and have a dedicated staff member attached to them while the head coach leads the class. After your first experience, the coach will discuss whether any personal sessions are needed before moving into class.
Please contact us to get started.
