About CrossFit NYC

The oldest and largest CrossFit affiliate in New York.

Our story

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.

Our Professional Coaches

Brian DeGennaro

Senior coach at CrossFit NYC and the head coach for our Barbell programs, a role I have been performing part time starting in 2008 and full time since 2012 after graduating Syracuse University with a BS in Exercise Science. During that time I was a personal trainer at the fitness center, interned within the Syracuse S&C department, and briefly for 3 months at California Strength in 2011. I began my journey as an athlete in 2003 training in gymnastics, competed in high school track & field, trained in CrossFit and general weight training, and from 2008 onward competed in weightlifting. I have competed at numerous local and national events, earning some national medals along the way. I have trained many athletes to medal at local competitions, qualify for national level events, earn Master National medals, and set state Master records.
