The 1,500 square feet inside CrossFit 192 aren't overflowing with fancy treadmills, TV-equipped ellipticals, or hologram-projecting weight machines. Instead, the certified trainers behind the studio know that kettlebells, free weights, a few rowing machines, and a whole lot of positive support are all that's required to make some dramatic body transformations. Using their ever-changing workout of the day, or WOD, these trainers scale functional fitness routines for any body type and experience level, following dynamic warmups with a unique line-up of high-intensity exercises, such as rowing or squatting.

At Howard Beach CrossFit, coaches Jennie and John put their degrees in exercise science to work prepping groups for every kind of physical activity with the CrossFit system. They ready their charges for everything from sports and work-related activities to daily chores by employing intense daily workouts that use functional movements. These movements include lifting during weight training, jumping on plyometric boxes, and pushing on the push press and combine to strengthen all muscle groups while enhancing speed and agility. Workouts are also scalable, which means that every person, be they a seasoned athlete or someone new to working out, can push themselves to their own edge and progress at their own pace. And to ward off the boredom of repetition, the instructors change the routine each session. One day, participants sprint and push sleds weighted down by plump reindeer, while the next they execute reverse lunges and supine rows. For the uninitiated, their beginner program familiarizes groups with CrossFit’s movements, and for those interested in individualized attention, they offer one-on-one and small group training. Howard Beach CrossFit has also began offering kickboxing classes for those looking for a one-two fitness punch.
