Welcome to Georgia Strength and Classic City CrossFit, the ONLY CrossFit gym in town run by dedicated, full time fitness professionals. Our head coaches have over two and a half decades of full time coaching experience, in addition to a lifetime of training for their profession in the classroom, on the competition floor (CrossFit Games, national USAW lifting meets, collegiate sports), and most importantly, perfecting their craft in various gyms over a span of thousands of hours. Coach Brent has been a full time owner/coach for 17 years, and Coach Ali has been a full time coach/owner for 9 years. Brent and Ali are both Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialists by the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA CSCS). Ali has her Masters Degree in Kinesiology and is a USAW Level 2 coach. Brent is Northeast Georgia’s only CrossFit Level 3 Coach, as well as the only USAW National Coach in the area. They both hold numerous specialty certifications including Precision Nutrition Coach and CrossFit mobility coach. Georgia Strength is also the home of Georgia Barbell Club, the only safesport certified USAW club in town!
When you come to Georgia Strength, you will be coached by the owners and our experienced coaches who underwent hundreds of hours of shadowing prior to acceptance into our ranks.
Each client’s training is expertly tailored to their particular needs based on their age, experience, strength, mobility, and any relevant injuries or issues. We incorporate the latest corrective exercise techniques to improve your neuromuscular efficiency and mobility so you can train safely and feel better, both in and out of the gym. When you train at Georgia Strength, you will get better at everything: strength and endurance, power and mobility, balance, coordination, and agility, all while striving to get outside of your comfort zone where progress is made and confidence is built.
We are located at 1337 West Hancock in downtown Athens and offer several programs including CrossFit, olympic weightlifting for aspiring competitors, an after school kids’ class for sports performance, a low impact Masters class (*CrossFit Lite), and our Moms Who Move specialty class for pre and postnatal moms who want to prepare for (or rebuild safely following) childbirth.
We are always looking to improve and expand our services, and that isn’t possible without honest feedback from our clients. This includes brand new clients and prospects!
