About Us

Founded in 2009 (one of the oldest in NYC), CrossFit Metropolis is a small-group training facility located on the ground floor at 156 East 100th Street (just off Lexington Ave.) on the Upper East Side in Manhattan.  We follow the training methodologies of CrossFit and focus on basic gymnastics, powerlifting, Olympic weightlifting and metabolic conditioning.  We are a tight-knit community of dedicated, hard-working, “everyday” folks in pursuit of innovative, effective and fun ways to achieve fitness.

CrossFitters come from all walks of life but tend to have the following in common:
–  They are curious and enjoy learning new things.
–  They push themselves to ever greater accomplishments.
–  They are humble.

If this sounds like your type of crowd, then come join us.  Check out the Getting Started tab for details.  You can register for a free Trial class here:
*Come by for our free Trial Session, Saturday at 12:30PM. *

Our goal is simple: to facilitate a world class CrossFit experience and build a safe and enjoyable community of kind, hard working souls.
