Unit 2 CrossFit class is a strength and conditioning program that combines weightlifting, sprinting, gymnastics, powerlifting, kettlebell training, plyometrics, rowing, and medicine ball training. We use CrossFit methodologies combined with the strength and conditioning techniques used for combat athletes. The readers of Creative Loafing voted Unit 2 CrossFit the best CrossFit gym in Atlanta.
What sets us apart from other CrossFit gyms is that all of our memberships include unlimited access to kickboxing classes, our full gym during normal business hours, and discounted martial arts classes.
We welcome people of all fitness levels to join our classes. Our instructors change the daily workouts to fit the needs of each member. We understand that many of the movements in the Workout of the Day (WOD) can seem daunting at first. That’s why we offer a bi-weekly skills program that focuses just on the program fundamentals. We highly recommend this class to our new members as well as seasoned CrossFitters working to strengthen their weaknesses.
