What our athletes have to say about us!

  • So this has been my box for about a year and a half. Pros: great community, and the coaches put a large amount of focus on form and development, to prevent injury and doing things right.  I've seen lots of poor / dangerous / neglecting versions at boxes across the country.  Also, it's an extremely inclusive environment, agnostic of ability. Cons: like every other box in nyc, you can't drop weights!

  • “I was a globo gym rat for a while until I … gave it shot. That was more than half a year ago and now I can say this is the best decision I have ever made.

    At CFER, you would feel more like working out with a bunch of friends in a garage. The atmosphere is almost the opposite of intimidating. All the people here and coaches here are extremely friendly and helpful and just ordinary people that you would grab a drink after class with… I am much stronger now after half a year (and counting) of crossfit. I look forward to my gym time every day.”

  • “I had a great experience… it made me love Crossfit…

    The coaches are nice attentive and patient. The culture is great- everybody supports each other, nobody looks down on you. I was a beginner so that was very important to me…

    Overall thank you Eric & Melissa for the great experience! Thanks to you I am now a crossfitter!  :)”

  • On a good week I make it to class 4-5 days a week. I’ve been a member of CFER for over 2 .5 years. I’ve gotten considerably stronger and have been getting a lot of comments on how slim I look. The coaches all give great feedback and make class fun! There is a great, supportive tribe of cross fitters at this gym! I order a few meals a week from Kettlebell Kitchen, which is delivered fresh to the gym twice a week. The owners are always around and are passionate about their gym; they regularly take and teach class and always pop in to be available for questions.
