As the oldest and largest CrossFit gym in New York City, we’re able to provide an unmatched depth and breadth of programming – nearly 400 classes each week.
Please note that the schedule below is for members who have already completed our pre-requisite Elements Workshop. If you’re new to CrossFit NYC, consider taking a free intro class, then sign up for Elements.
Descriptions of the class types are below the schedule. You can also download a PDF schedule for printing or offline reference.
Elements Classes: Elements is a repeating series of six classes that provides a crash-course on the basics of CrossFit. You’ll practice perfect form on the movements that make up our workouts, learn how to scale movements appropriately to your own level, and start ramping up your fitness with a CrossFit workout at the end of each class. Members are welcome to repeat Elements classes as many times as they’d like, until they feel ready to head into our regular Beginner WODs.
Beginner WODs: Seven days per week, we also offer WOD classes tailored specifically to members who have recently graduated from Elements. We know that taking on a new challenge (like CrossFit) can be intimidating, so our beginner classes help ease people in. These classes use lighter weights, scaled versions of some of the more difficult movements, and include more time reviewing the basics of safe and efficient technique. More broadly, these classes serve as a friendly transition from Elements to the regular WOD.
Experienced WODs: After a first year of CrossFit, members typically feel like they’ve mastered the basics, and are looking for more nuanced instruction, as well as a more competitive workout environment. Our Experienced WODs allow members to go head-to-head without scaling weights and workouts (“as RX’ed”), and help members continue to make real gains in their strength, metabolic capacity and CrossFit skills.
Competition WODS: CrossFit isn’t just a great way to work out; it’s also a sport, in and of itself. (Each year, you can watch the Reebok CrossFit Games on ESPN, which crowns the fittest man and woman in the world, with a million dollar prize purse.) Our team allows athletes with an interest in serious CrossFit competition to hone the finer points of their game (whether Olympic weightlifting, powerlifting, or gymnastics), and to move heavier weights at higher intensities, head to head with other similarly skilled athletes. Our team is open by audition with the supervising coach, Avery Wittkamp.
CrossFit Endurance: CrossFit WODs alone are sufficient to bring athletes to such a high level of fitness that a number of our members have run marathons, for example, with no additional running training outside the WOD. For serious endurance athletes (in sports like running, cycling, swimming and rowing), however, supplementing WODs with specific training helps members go faster, further, with less work, and with less working out. Our CrossFit Endurance classes also focus on improving running or rowing technique, to help you become a more biomechanically efficient athlete.
Active Recovery: This class is designed to be done on a Rest Day or to complement a WOD. You’ll be guided through a combination of stretching, self-myofascial release techniques, and core strengthening to improve your range of motion and increase overall strength and stability by Coach Dustin, a former member of the National Canadian Men’s Gymnastics Team who also has experience in Pilates.
The class will teach members a variety of useful stretches and mobilizations so they can develop their own DIY Active Recovery routine. These movements are meant to be restorative and will not be a substitute for a WOD.
Open Gym: Open Gym is run like any other class in terms of pre-registration and attendance policy. The coach on duty ensures that the space remains organized and safe during the class. Members review their training plan for the day with the instructor on duty. The coach will be there to offer instruction and tips to the members, however they will not lead members through a structured warm up or WOD. The instructor will have final say on any workout they deem unsafe or logistically not feasible during the class session. Any of our members are welcome to sign up for Open Gym classes once they have completed Elements, though we generally recommend it as an option for our more experienced members.
Events: CrossFit classes tend to build new friendships fast, so we also plan a slew of events, to give our members the chance socialize with new friends both inside and outside the gym. Whether a fundraiser workout competition, a rock-climbing trip upstate, or a night of drinks at a nearby bar, we hold events throughout the month that let or members put their fitness to use, or rest and recover, in a way that’s social and fun. Keep an eye on the Upcoming Events for updates on trips and social events!
