MOVE Functional Fitness


Home of CrossFit East Decatur


Since opening as CrossFit East Decatur in 2008, we've known that exercise is an integral part of helping someone feel whole.  Exercise and sport are a form of self expression and realization through movement.  Discovering the energy and life inside you can be an exciting and rejuvenating experience.  But exercising isn't just about finding your 1 Rep Max Deadlift, or how fast you run a 5K, or how many pull-ups you can do in a row.  It's about how all of these things combined help you achieve the life that you want to live.  It's  the journey to achieving these feats and what you learned about yourself along the way.  It's the friends, family, and community that come together to support you and your dreams.  MOVE with PURPOSE!


Our workouts are FUN and effective!  The CrossFit prescription includes CONSTANT VARIATION of FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENT performed at INTENSITY.  Our coaches meet you at your level and modify the workouts to help you achieve your specific goals.

  • CONSTANT VARIATION>>  Different every day BUT NOT RANDOM.  All movements and exercises can be adjusted for the individual.
  • FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENTS>>  We use safe, effective and efficient exercises similar to those you use in every day life.
  • HIGH INTENSITY>>  Like our movements, Intensity can be adjusted to challenge the individual and safely improve fitness.


Community is extremely important to humankind.  Without it we would never achieve the seemingly impossible feats that we have throughout the millennia.  Community pushes us, encourages us, applauds our success and consoles our failure.  Community gives us something more to believe in and makes us the best version of ourselves as individuals.  This applies to exercise and training as well.  So why go it alone when you have fitness community willing to help you realize your true potential.  Start training with friends.

CrossFit East Decatur at MOVE Functional Fitness

Established in 2008 as CrossFit East Decatur, MOVE is one of the longest running CrossFit Affiliates in the SouthEast.  

CrossFit is constantly varied functional movement performed at high intensity. Our exercises are all multi-joint movements which require in depth instruction and commitment to reach proficiency:  squats, deadlifts, cleans & jerks, pullups, pushups, jumping rope, and so on. Technique is especially important due to the “high intensity” part of our program. To get the best results from your training, you need to be able to push yourself to your limits without breaking down your form and technique.

The MOVE Workout of the Day is our general prescription for fitness and it's a great way to challenge yourself by feeding off the energy of your classmates.  Your MOVE coach works with you to get the exact exercise you need on a day to day basis.

When you become a member of Move Functional Fitness, you aren’t just joining a gym and buying a workout. You are starting a results oriented fitness program with a top notch coaching staff!
