Travis Harkey is the owner of CrossFit North Atlanta in Georgia. Join him and his crew as they discuss moving their box into a larger facility—their first move since opening four years ago.

“We are basically at capacity,” Harkey says. “If everybody came to the workout they were enrolled in, we’d have a problem.”

CrossFit North Atlanta is just one of five different affiliates in a three-mile radius, but they make it work.

“Our new potential customers or prospect clients are shopping, which is cool,” he says. “It means they’re informed and they’re looking for the right culture and the right, you know, leadership and the right … overall methodologies and the space—you name it.”

CrossFit North Atlanta’s new facility boasts an open warehouse space, high ceilings and bay doors. The coaches say they started the process of finding a new home over three months before settling on the new facility. Harkey explains how they found the new location and ultimately picked it.

Totally agree with Yannick Dagenais. I would love to see more videos of the move and any renovations you did to the space.
Please tell me this is part 1 of a series.

this is good stuff - I agree it would be great to see the documentary from new space to opening day.
being the owner of a small garage gym I like to see where this could go. i'm also an atl affiliate.
so good to see some ATL in the journal lately.
