The original vision for Power Athletics was birthed in a tiny garage gym in 2008. Jonathan was a Police Officer training people out of his garage gym until April of 2010. In April of 2010 Jonathan was shot in the line of duty and this turn of events eventually led Jonathan to follow the call he felt to help others with health and wellness. In February of 2011 Jonathan resigned the police department and in March 2011 the doors of CrossFit North Alpharetta opened for business. It is one of the original affiliates in the area and was one of the first 4 CrossFit gyms from Old Milton Parkway all the way north to Dahlonega.

In 2016 CrossFit North Alpharetta became Power Athletics home of CrossFit 30004 as our program offerings and client base grew.

If you are just starting out, our 6 week challenge program is an excellent launching pad to prime your body and mind for the work and achievements ahead with a community of like minded individuals, or opt for our one on one foundations training if you prefer a one on one approach.

Jonathan EdwardsOwner, Head Coach

A CrossFit athlete since 2007, certified CrossFit trainer since 2008 and a former Police Officer, Jonathan uses the CrossFit methodology to stay in performing shape.

Several years into his law enforcement career, Jonathan sustained a gunshot wound in the line of duty. After the injury doctors advised him that it would be 6 months before he could even walk, Jonathan’s excellent physical condition and mental fortitude had him back at his job within 2 months. He credits CrossFit as one of the reasons for for his unusually quick recovery. Due to his experiences with the effectiveness of this training method that prepares people for life and the unexpected, Jonathan chose to resign his position with the police department to open CrossFit 30004. Today, he dedicates his life to helping others achieve their personal health and fitness goals, fitness they never imagined possible, and in general preparing people for the challenges of daily life. In Jonathan’s words: The calling in my life is about moving my athletes toward being the best they can be in mind, body, and spirit.
