Ali and I would really like to thank CFCJ Sean for welcoming us as drop ins into his box from Australia, and coach Sharon for being a personable and motivating presence. We both felt like we really got what we came for in a professional and friendly environment. Thankyou too to Allie and Julian for wod-ing out with us, it was really nice to meet you two. Lastly, we would highly recommend this place to drop ins and anyone looking to join a fitness community.
I've never pushed myself harder and had so much fun doing it!
Amazing coaches, diverse workouts that push you to the limit each time, encouragement from the whole team, and no BS! I've previously struggled to find a community as close as this one. The classes are addicting, people! You won't get a nice butt by sitting on it 🙂
I've procrastinated writing this review, because I didn't want to admit that my time at CFCJ was over. This is where I began my crossfit journey. From the beginning, everybody there was super friendly and helpful. The on-ramp sessions where you learn the fundamentals on lifting and technique were essential. Every coach there, is knowledgeable, skilled and genuinely care about each individual and making sure they do things correct without injury. They push you(hard), but never in a mean or derogatory manner. Every member there encourages you with positivity. Never once did I feel bad for not being able to keep up or did anybody snark or throw shade. The camaraderie is big here. People welcome you into the fold quickly(I miss the "ZOO" crew terribly). I am currently at a new box, the workouts are killer, and the coaches are great also. But the CFCJ vibe and family is something I will miss forever! Sean, Ian, Chris, Jeff, Heather and anybody that I am forgetting, You guys have something VERY SPECIAL there! Keep doing what you are doing and thank you for every bit of it! Ok I'm done now, and a little teary eyed... Lol
My second time @ CrossFit Concrete Jungle! It was incredible the first time, and was even more amazing the second time!! How can something that great get even better? Two words: Sean Wright!! This man and his staff have a unique & special thing going on @ CFCJ! If you haven't taken any classes, please do! "Challenge" is a word thrown around in fitness that often leads to disappointment as it totally falls short of the hype. Sean & Co. deliver the goods and then some! Truly impressive...& I can't wait for next week's class!! Thanks Sean!
Ok so I LOVVVEE this place. If I lived here this would be my home ! Thanks for the Ass Kicking. See you next time in NYC. Update Oct 5 -8,2016. Still a5 STAR visit. Outstanding ass kicking. Thank you Sean Wright. You're enthusiasm is contagious !!!
Have you ever wanted to lift weights and not know how to or where to start? Ever thought of having a "gym" family? Well...here's the place where not only will you know what to do and improve but, you'll have great team of members supporting and chanting for you! I walked in these doors not knowing what I signed up too and I am so happy I took a chance and put my fears to the side and challenged my body both physically and mentally. I really love this place and I mean it. The coaches are experienced, supportive and encouraging. Serge is the reason why I am still a member! He makes it worthy and believes in you and that is the driving fuel you'll need.
Amazing team of coaches and athletes, great quality programming and access to a variety of training programs (CrossFit, Olympic weightlifting, Strength). Flexible hours and a very welcoming environment, I've been to many other gyms and have not seen this level of charisma and support from everyone. Highly recommended.
Favorite workout in all of NYC. I go through ClassPass as I like to vary my workouts but anytime you want a challenge, go here. Harder than Barry's and on par with tone house. Sean is a big reason why I love going. Amazing instructor. Great motivator and great diversity of workout time after time.
