About CrossFit NYC
The oldest and largest CrossFit affiliate in New York.
CrossFit NYC was the first CrossFit affiliate in New York City and is now one of the five oldest CrossFit affiliates in the world (2005). We have supervised more CrossFit workouts than anyone else.
Our classes include scaling and substitution options that allow beginners as well as those who are older, less advanced, or recovering from injuries to proceed safely.
Those who are new to CrossFit start with two hours of private training with an experienced coach, included in a one-month (no further obligation) First-Month CrossFit membership.
If you’re wondering whether CrossFit NYC is right for you, just ask yourself whether you want to improve your fitness (regardless of where you are starting from)? If your answer is yes, then we want you as a member, and we will work hard with you to accomplish your goals.
