A judge ruled that the trendy gym was too noisy

Residents of the Steiner Building, a luxury condo building in Chelsea, have convinced a judge to boot CrossFit — their alleged noisy neighbor.

The Manhattan judge is shutting down the Chelsea CrossFit after gym-goers were accused of constantly hoisting heavy free weights into the air and letting them smash to the floor late into the evening, according to the New York Post.

“Residents of the condominium have a right to enjoy their apartments in relative peace,” Justice Joan Kenney wrote in her ruling.

Residents of the building, located at 257 West 17th Street first sued the CrossFit facility, called Brick, back in 2013.

“On numerous occasions my family and I have been woken up by the noises and vibrations emanating” from Brick, says Catherine Havenmeyer, who lives in a third-floor unit. “My family and I hear these sounds starting at 6 a.m. most days and then sporadically throughout the day.”

Havenmeyer added that she wouldn’t have bought the condo — where a two-bedroom unit recently sold for $3.4 million — if she knew a gym was moving in down stairs. [NYP]Christopher Cameron
