Bring in the New Year with a workout at Athletic Lab
2011 is hours away. We’ve got a sick workout planned for tomorrow. Start off the New Year right with an awesome workout at Athletic Lab. We’re open for our regularly scheduled 11am CrossFit and Scholastic classes. Stop in and see if you’re up for our New Year’s challenge.

Athletic Lab and Cary CrossFit morning sessions cancelled
Due to the inclement weather, all morning training sessions at Athletic Lab will be cancelled tomorrow (12/27/10). We will have a 6pm Open Gym for anyone who would like to train. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Connect to the Community
One of the things that sets Athletic Lab apart from fitness or sport performance facilities is our community. Everyone knows everyone’s name and recognizes that there’s a shared common commitment to training to achieve your goals. To foster this sense of community, we have several avenues for clients to connect with each other. If you’re on one of these social networks and haven’t already, join your local peers in these online communities:
- @mikeyoung on twitter for great health and fitness tips from the owner of Athletic Lab
- @athleticlab on twitter for our blog feed, special deals, schedule changes and the latest Athletic Lab news
- @carycrossfit on twitter for Cary CrossFit blog postings as well as the workout of the day
- Athletic Lab on Facebook for pictures from the latest workouts, news from the blog, schedule changes and opportunities to connect to friends from the Lab
- Athletic Lab on Linked In for connecting to staff and making business connections
The effects of training are dose dependent. If you commit yourself to train hard and train smart you will get better. This is something we try to stress at Athletic Lab because unlike many in our industry, we REALLY TRULY CARE that you achieve your goals. And we realize this isn’t possible unless a commitment is made on your part. We don’t want to take your money and never see you again. In fact, we NEED to see you twice a week to guarantee results and at least once a week to maintain what you’ve already learned and developed. When we see clients regularly, we can plan training more effectively, ensure that all physical capacities necessary for top-level performance are trained, and make steps forward in development (as opposed to always taking one step forward and one step back) because training can be progressive rather than helter-skelter. We take personal pride in your improvement and want to see you get better and achieve your goals. We know that when you get better it helps us because you become a walking billboard for our services. And we’d rather there weren’t slow, out-of-shape, weak people running around saying they train at Athletic Lab when really they just come once a month. We’re committed to your progress. Show up, bring some effort and we’ll do the rest.

Train Where the Pros Train

We have over 40 professional or Olympic development athletes training at Athletic Lab in sports ranging from Soccer to Skeleton. Several travel from across the country to do so. There isn’t another training center in the Triangle that can boast as many top flight athletes as Athletic Lab. These athletes choose Athletic Lab for the facility and the coaching. Follow the leaders. Train at Athletic Lab.
