CrossFit NYC is possibly the largest CrossFit affiliate in the world. We may also have the greatest number of LBGTQ CrossFitters. The two largest LBGTQ CrossFit groups both have their roots at CrossFit NYC.
All of this is a direct consequence of the fact CrossFit NYC is completely aligned with the ideals of CrossFit. Those ideals are simple: CrossFit welcomes into its community anyone and everyone willing to do the work. Nothing in the CrossFit fitness standards has to do with race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or anything else not directly related to maximizing our member’s fitness. We focus on one thing: improving the fitness of our members.
Our first tee shirt (2007) summed it up in one word: RESPECT.
