NYC’s latest CrossFit gym gets Chelsea-fied

October 10, 2013 01:45PM

Wellness and fitness center Brick New York is bringing an unusually amenity-rich CrossFit gym to 257 West 17th Street.

CrossFit, typically a sparse affair that foregoes machines and sets up shop in industrial garages, will be a far more luxe affair in Brick’s Chelsea locale. Towels, showers and air conditioning will be on offer, enabling devotees to head home or back to work after a sweaty workout.

“It fits Manhattan,” Will Lanier, a coach and general manager at Brick, told DNAinfo. “We’ve got everything you need in terms of going to work — from soap to shampoo to blow-dryers.” [DNAinfo]Julie Strickland
