Brick walls, Olympic rings suspended from chains, and gigantic tires are the only decorations that CrossFit Smithtown needs. Part of the no-frills CrossFit movement, the gym welcomes guests of all fitness levels to participate in its workouts, which change each day to continually challenge the body. Coaches lead their students through exercises that typically require either barbells or body weight—burpees, pull-ups, squats, and box jumps are but a few examples. And though the routines are meant to be intense, they are also scalable, meaning that beginners and advanced pupils can work out side by side in the same class. This sort of diversity is common, as the propelling force behind all classes is a strong sense of community.
Concrete Knuckles it about more than just bolstering physiques.

Clients have access to instructors who are certified fitness trainers and amateur MMA champions.
At CrossFit Centereach, members won't spend countless hours on a treadmill parked in front of flat screens.
