Fire Recovery Fund for Daisha & Nya

Charity partner workout this Saturday September 18th!

Last weekend there was a massive apartment fire that displaced dozens of families in Southwest Atlanta. Unfortunately, two of our Atlanta leadership club girls were among those who were affected! We’ve been hosting these girls for workouts at Terminus for over a year now, and Daisha (14) and Nya (15) are two of our most consistent attendees. Their families lost everything in the fire!

We would like to do everything we can to help these girls! We will be running a fundraiser workout this Saturday, September 18th in our regular Saturday classes. We encourage you to donate HERE if you would like to help! All donations go directly to Atlanta Leadership Club!

Fred Webb

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, It's our resident superhero! AKA Clark Kent, AKA Fred Webb! He may come off as mild manner by day, but is a true Superman when he hits the gym.

Q: How long have you been going to Terminus? What changes have you seen in yourself (physically or mentally) since joining?
I have been a part of the Terminus community since February 2021. Physically, I notice that I am leaner, yet I am at my strongest. The dynamic combination of functional movements along with weightlifting has completely transformed my outlook on exercising; it is like learning how to walk for the first time. Mentally, there are moments where I can’t believe I am able to do CrossFit; there is no doubt it is building mental fortitude challenging my mind and body. Consequently, when I finish a workout, it’s equally rewarding and mind blowing because of the level of difficulty. Last, I’m just in a better head space when I go to Terminus, exercise gives me peace of mind.

Q: How has your journey at Terminus helped you outside the gym?
In addition to being in great physical shape, spending time in the gym has led to some amazing relationships outside of the gym. Specifically, I’ve been able to have a lot more social support outside the gym which is a tremendous value to me. I feel like I am building community. I’ve also had opportunities to spend time with the Terminus community at weekend events and some night life.

Q: Who inspires you at the gym, and how do they inspire you?
There are a few individuals who inspire me at the gym. Diana Wong. Diana was the first person within the Terminus community I met and advocated for me to join the gym. It all started with a conversation at church. Diana inspires me because she’s got that Mamba mentality during workouts and holds me accountable for showing up to the gym. Michael Layton also motivates me. I can always count on Michael to “show me the ropes.” He’s never too busy to demonstrate the correct form or movement of an exercise, even during a tough workout. Michael also helps me with skill work after class! Finally, Seth Oyler. Seth goes hard in the gym that’s just what he does. In addition, he challenges me to optimize my energy during workouts, so I am working hard and smart. I love that fist bump from him after a good workout.

Q: How would you describe what it’s like to be a part of Terminus?
Family environment. It’s exciting to be a part of the Terminus community; working out with a group of individuals all striving to push their physical and mental limitations and become the best version of themselves. Doing CrossFit at Terminus is a completely new experience for me. I know I’m at the right gym.  Since I began my journey at Terminus everyone has been extremely welcoming and helpful. I feel like Bobby Boucher in the Water Boy “thank you so much for being my friends.”

Q:  Tell us about your first day of class at Terminus.
Thankfully, my first day was truly an introductory class. I remember going to a morning class around 9:15am. I felt like I was in a completely new environment trying to absorb everything. I remember doing deadlifts that day, but I didn’t know the flow of class and how the gym operated. I tried to watch and learn from other gym members there, also observing how to locate and change weight plates. I’m thankful for the help I received that day from members and my coach.

Q: What is something that we may not know about you?
Growing up in San Diego, California I played multiple sports such as football, basketball, and participated in Track and Field. Next, I’ve been creating Hip Hop/Rap music since 2011 and released my first album recently, titled “Clark Kent” available on all major platforms.

Q: What are your top 3 memories or proudest moments in CrossFit?
One of my proudest moments includes learning and doing the Olympic weightlifts. I recently set a personal record for cleans. Next, improving my technique in the kipping pull up. Last, learning how to increase my reps with touch n’ go’s when using the barbell, it’s a game changer!

Q: Moving forward, do you have any short term or long-term goals in the gym?
Moving forward my short-term goal is to continue to improve in the movements, skills, and exercises we do in the gym. I feel I’m in a good place right now where I am making progress; this feeling alone excites me for the future. Long term, it would be incredible to compete at some level. The CrossFit games are extremely inspirational.

Athlete of the MonthAugust

Orianna Casanas & Rafael Villasana

We have so much love for our community, and love to highlight one athlete each month that exemplifies hard work and perseverance. This month we decided to feature one of our power couples!

Q: How long have you been going to Terminus? What changes have you seen in yourself (physically or mentally) since joining?
It’ll be a year at the end of October! When we first joined, we were coming out of the quarantine so our minds and bodies were not in the best shape. Since joining, we are both stronger, fitter, and enjoying the process more than we ever have.

Q: How has your journey at Terminus helped you outside the gym?
Terminus has helped us learn how to tackle our weaknesses with more grace inside and outside the gym while still being proud of our strengths. It has also helped us stay balanced and more focused in everything we love doing outside the gym.

Q: Who inspires you at the gym, and how do they inspire you?
We all know that CrossFit is not an easy thing to do, so to be surrounded by so many people who don’t shy away from doing difficult things and always show up and give it their best effort has been awesome.
But Curtis tho, the guy never stops moving.

Q: How would you describe what it’s like to be a part of Terminus?
Terminus is a community of people who take their fitness seriously but love so much more than just CrossFit. We have met artists, teachers, entrepreneurs, grandparents, parents and their kids, students, athletes, Georgians who are born and raised, and people who have come from all parts of the world. All are kind-hearted, welcoming and people who love to see each other succeed.

Q:  Tell us about your first day of class at Terminus.
We were pretty nervous to get back into CrossFit after not having worked out for months, but we shrugged it off by saying “How bad could it really be? It’s not like it’ll be burpees over the rower or Kalsu or anything like that”… It was burpees over the rower, which actually ended up being really fun! And then a few weeks later it was Kalsu so we skipped that one :)

Q: What is something that we may not know about you?
Rafa: I’m an in vitro baby and could’ve been a triplet
Orianna: I’m a black belt in Kung Fu

Q: What are your top 3 memories or proudest moments in CrossFit?
Rafa: Hitting CaliBear rx with coach Trent for the first time, rx-ing Nate and snatching 100kgs.
Orianna: First bar muscle up post pandemic, failing a power clean twice and Jen Emory pushing me to try again and hitting it for a big PR, and front squatting my old 1RM for 5.

Q: Moving forward, do you have any short term or long term goals in the gym?
Rafa: I want to stay as present as I can and enjoy training as it comes. But I always want to be stronger.
Orianna: Short term goal is butterfly pulls up and long term I’m shooting for a 200lbs clean.

August 2021 Pull-ympics

 

We are excited to announce our newest challenge. This challenge will help everyone improve one simple element that is the key to unlocking not only higher level gymnastics movements, but also your weightlifting as well. No surprise here! It’s your upper body pulling strength that needs some work. This challenge will help focus your attention on developing not only your pulling strength, but your endurance as well!

What are the Pull-ympics???
It’s a commitment!
We have 3 different levels available.
Gold level: Complete 1000 Strict Pull-Ups during the month Of August
(this breaks down to roughly 32 pull-ups a day)
Silver Level: Complete 800 Strict Pull-Ups during the month of August
(this breaks down to roughly 24 pull-ups a day)
Bronze Level: Complete 600 Strict Pull-Ups during the month of August
(this breaks down to roughly 19 pull-ups a day)

But I can’t do a pull-up!?!
This challenge is for you! Strict pull-ups can be done with band assistance! By the end of the month we fully expect that with consistency you will finally grab that major milestone with your very first strict pull-up!

How do I join the challenge? 
Easy. Send your name and level of commitment to [email protected] by August 1, 2021!

What do I get if I join and complete the challenge? 
Primarily you’ll get stronger, better and more fit! No more cherrypicking those pull-up days. But seriously we are offering 3 different small prize packages (one for each level) to incentivize your progress!!!

Anything else I should know?

Yes! Here are the details! Read and reread!

  • You will have 31 days to complete the challenge: Start date is August 1, and the end date is August 31.
  • You must make your commitment by email to Ben no later than 11:59PM on August 1. We will not allow any late entries! Please include your name and level of commitment (Gold, Silver, or Bronze)
  •  Everyone that joins the challenge must keep some type of record or spread sheet. That record should be electronic, and include the date, time, and number of pull-ups completed for each day that you work toward your commitment level goal. We will require an electronic record submitted to Ben at the end of the challenge to claim your prize! We highly recommend keeping a video log via IG, or Facebook to track your progress (although not necessary to redeem your prize).
  • Pull-Ups start from a dead hang and must be strict chin over bar with full range of motion demonstrated throughout movement. See the video for demo! Kipping pull-ups will not be allowed! Bands are allowed!
  • You do not need to complete pull-ups everyday! Rest days are encouraged but realize that you will need to double up for everyday that you miss!
  • If you currently don’t have a strict pull-up, we highly recommend sticking with the bronze level. This will be a much more appropriate volume. Use bands to assist and slowly try to decrease resistance as the challenge goes on. The goal is to grab your first real pull-up by the end of the challenge! Appropriate resistance allows for approx 3-5 reps unbroken (try to avoid making it easy just to get your reps done).
  • The challenge is separate from the daily programming. You can’t count WOD reps toward the monthly total!!!
  • We highly encourage using some type of grip (Victory Grips are the best) to prevent wear and tear on your hands. We also encourage developing a hand and body maintenance routine!
  • Any other questions??? Please send to [email protected]

Chloe Pearse

Chloe's courage, humor, humility, and charity represent the qualities that truly make our community special.

Q: How long have you been going to Terminus? What changes have you seen in yourself (physically or mentally) since joining?
At the start of 2019 I was diagnosed with a blood cancer and it knocked me sideways. Overnight pretty much everything changed for me. I spent 2019 trying to understand what it meant, getting used to the medication that knocked me out and added to my growing fatigue. My ‘ah ha’ moment came this time last year in 2020 when I realized I needed to get active and fit again if this body was going to deal with my illness and get me through the next 30 years or so. I knew of Terminus as I regularly drove past the gym so I contacted Ben and set up an intro lesson.  I have been coming  3-4 times a week almost regularly since then. This is the most committed I’ve ever been to a place and to my health and the changes are noticeable. While I’ll never lift the heaviest, I’m lifting heavier and heavier each time. I’ll never be the fastest but I push myself to finish within time. I’ll never be the most flexible but my squats are pretty deep, and I’ll never like burpees but I do them. Terminus has made me want to get better for myself and that is a new feeling for me.

Q: How has your journey at Terminus helped you outside the gym?
Getting physically stronger means I can now do things I enjoy without getting tired too quickly. I remember the first time I kept up with my husband in unloading 30 bags of mulch. I matched him bag for bag up the driveway. Before Terminus I would not have been able to have moved more than about 4 without having to quit. That was one of my proudest moments, knowing that getting strong meant I could live life. It’s helped me in other ways too, I’m more comfortable in my body, I like the way it is slowly changing shape and showing the world what it can do.

Q: Who inspires you at the gym, and how do they inspire you?
Everyone who turns up regardless of all the other family, work and mental pressures that we all face. The 7am and 8am classes, these are full of fun, kind and talented people (who also bring a slightly world-weary sarcasm with them that I appreciate so much – I’m looking at you Allison and Wyatt). Also let’s not forget the 7.30pm class – Marcie, Sam, Jacquwan who encouraged me when I first started. The coaches, especially the coaches who were once students. I think that says a lot about a place that it inspires people to want to teach and help others be their best.

Q: How would you describe what it’s like to be a part of Terminus?
I am part of a group of people who don’t necessarily take themselves seriously but take their fitness very seriously and that means people are open and friendly and supportive of each other’s goals and are always happy for someone else’s success.

Q:  Tell us about your first day of class at Terminus.
Patrick and squats. Bear in mind I had not exercised in almost 2 years, I was the original ‘couch to cross-fit’ candidate. I couldn’t walk the next day but I remember that I loved the class, Patrick and the others made it so welcoming (and it is scary turning up unfit to Cross-Fit)

Q: What is something that we may not know about you?
I have lived and worked on 4 continents, and I became an American citizen in April

Q: What are your top 3 memories or proudest moments in CrossFit?
Hitting triple digits for a back squat. Shaving 40secs off a 2km row the second time I did it and having enough grip strength to finally be able to hang off the bar

Q: Moving forward, do you have any short term or long term goals in the gym?
Yes lots! Now I can hang from the bar, I want to work on pull ups – it’s the old lack of upper body strength for me. If this time next year I can execute some decent looking pull ups I will be over the moon.

Adam Mincey

Adam is a local Atlanta real estate agent and recent newlywed. Get to know Adam here and give him a fist bump next time you're at the gym. 

Q: How long have you been going to Terminus? What changes have you seen in yourself (physically or mentally) since joining? 

I joined Terminus in October of 2018. Ryan Oubre kept showing up to look at houses suuuper sweaty and jacked after his WOD and he invited me to come workout! It has definitely improved my physique and conditioning. But, the biggest change I have seen in myself is my level of focus. I have been able to train my mind to be more present and do just a little bit more than I think I am capable of doing.

Q: How has your journey at Terminus helped you outside the gym?

Putting yourself through these grueling workouts week in and out definitely creates a strong mental fortitude.

Q: Who inspires you at the gym, and how do they inspire you?

Probably cliché but I would say everyone! Seeing someone who is clearly more fit than you and trying to keep pace with them is super inspiring, or seeing all of the Eastman’s there working out together is amazing and totally family goals!

Q: How would you describe what it’s like to be a part of Terminus?

It’s like going to school again, but maybe like a P.E. class ha! You have a chance to get to know this wonderful community all while also going through super tough workouts together!

Q:  Tell us about your first day of class at Terminus.

Back in 2018 we still had “intro” class.  All I really recall is Patrick was our coach and I was eager to show how in shape and fit I was and that I was ready for the regular class! I was not..

Q: What is something that we may not know about you?

I was in a few local bands here and spent from 2009-2015 playing music all over the country

Q: What are your top 3 memories or proudest moments in CrossFit?

1. Placing in 2nd at last years 10k
2. Getting my first muscle up
3. Meeting my bro Thomas

Q: Moving forward, do you have any short term or long term goals in the gym?

Butterfly pull-ups are my short term and my long term is to do L3 for every workout for a whole year!

Athlete of the MonthApril

The Treumans

For April we are featuring one of the gym's power couples. Get to know Kathryn and Daniel here and give them a fist bump next time you're at the gym.

Q: How long have you been going to Terminus? What changes have you seen in yourself (physically or mentally) since joining?

We’ve been doing CrossFit for a little over 4.5 years and joined Terminus in late December of 2018, so I guess we have been members for about 2 and a half years. Hard to believe really as that time has passed by pretty quickly. We have certainly both gotten physically stronger since joining Terminus, but we are more proud of the improvement to our “engines” and our ability to push through longer/tougher/more mentally challenging workouts. We are still working everyday to improve on the physical elements of our programming where we struggle (see: heavy barbell cycling or anytime I have to put a bar above my head for Daniel and pull-ups/T2B for Kathryn), but we definitely feel like our attitude remains positive and engaged even on days where the movements do not favor our strengths. We definitely had an issue with cherry-picking workouts at our previous gym. Since joining Terminus, the only time we don’t go to the gym is if our schedules do not allow; we do not let the contents of the workout dictate whether we come or not.

Q: How has your journey at Terminus helped you outside the gym?

We both agree that Terminus is an important part of not just our physical health, but our mental health as well. We sleep better, function better at work, and generally feel better because of the time we get to spend at Terminus. As Kathryn likes to say, sweating it out and slinging barbells around at the gym makes me a better person outside of the gym! This pandemic has also been a great reminder of the importance of physical and specifically our cardiovascular health as we get older and deal with an uncertain world. It is good to know that we are doing everything we can to remain healthy and Terminus is a huge part of that.

Q: Who inspires you at the gym, and how do they inspire you?

Kathryn:  For sure my 5amily ladiesssss (this includes Katie Taylor…you PM folks can’t have her, she’s all ours!)…but all of the badass strong AF females that walk in the door daily at Terminus…even all the afternoon/evening gals that I’ve never even met because I don’t workout when the sun’s out :). Y’all come in each day and crush it!

Daniel: I am constantly amazed at the number of people who are crazy enough to wake up at a time where there is still a “4” on the clock in order to make it to the 5am class. It is a remarkable consistent group of people and I admire all of my 5amily for it. In addition, I won’t name any names for fear of leaving someone out, but there are a handful of people that I just love working out with, who know how and when to push me and make sure I get the most out of every training session. I appreciate this more than I can express here.

Q: How would you describe what it’s like to be a part of Terminus?

There are a number of different elements of being a member at Terminus that define the experience for us. First and foremost, we love the community and the people that we workout with each day. They are a huge part of the reason that we are willing to wake up at 4:30 every day to come to the gym. They are inspiring and hardworking, and we have developed some very meaningful friendships with these folks. We appreciate each and every coach at Terminus as we know that we will receive quality instruction and quality feedback that allows us to improve as athletes but also to stay safe and avoid injury. Lastly, we appreciate that the programming at Terminus is always challenging and always pushing us to improve. The high level of intensity from the workouts is both daunting but also exciting to be a part of each day.

Q:  Tell us about your first day of class at Terminus.

We actually have two different “First Days” at Terminus. Before we joined officially, we did a drop in class. It was right around the December holidays so there weren’t too many people there, but we do remember that Sara Hardy greeted us in the parking lot with that big smile and a warm welcome. The workout that day involved running and pull-ups, so it was definitely more in Daniel’s wheelhouse than Kathryn’s. Our first class/workout after we joined the gym was coached by Ben and featured double-unders. Kathryn very distinctly remembers Ben having a significant amount of constructive feedback to discuss with her about her double unders, which of course only made them worse on that day and was a quick introduction to the intensity that Ben can bring to a class.

Q: What is something that we may not know about you?

Kathryn: Fun fact! I’m ambidextrous…I write and eat left-handed…but do most everything else (including using scissors and playing any kind of sportsball) right-handed

Daniel: During college, as a member of the UGA Basketball Band, I was kicked out of multiple games for heckling players and referees.

Joint: We have been together for almost 16 years. We met at UGA, when Daniel was but a young freshman and Kathryn was going into her junior year (yes, Kathryn is older/a cougar).

Q: What are your top 3 memories or proudest moments in CrossFit?

Kathryn

  • Anytime I beat Daniel in a WOD
  • I will 1000000% never forget *ATTEMPTING* to do the hero WOD “TAMA” in the middle of a torrential downpour, with thunder and lightning in the area. Thanks for that one Coach Patrick…
  • Most recently, I am really proud of the effort I gave for the Open WOD 21.2, and seeing the huge amount of improvement I’ve made since this was originally programmed as 17.1, which was my first CrossFit Open.

Daniel

  • Anytime I beat Kathryn in a WOD
  • That time the evening classes correctly placed the weights back onto the wall-holders (Just kidding! This has never actually happened!)
  • Anytime Jeremy has a story to share with the class. See: The hyena story.
  • Bonus Memory: Post Friendsgiving Nickelback leisure walks…Thanks Steve.

Q: Moving forward, do you have any short term or long term goals in the gym?

Kathryn:  Short term, I want to get my right foot back to 100% (or as close as I can get) so that I can get back into my running groove. More long term, I want to continue working on my upper body strength in order to string more pull-ups together and finally getting some freaking kipping T2B!

Daniel: I want to continue to improve on the movements that give me the most trouble, including ring muscle-ups (which I still haven’t figured out), heavy barbell cycling, and overhead squats. Long term, I simply want to stay healthy, avoid injury, and continue to find steady improvement through consistently going to Terminus 5-6 days per week.
