The fleet of experienced instructors tailors their personal training sessions to suit the needs and goals of guests, keeping cardio and strength training challenging but always interesting. Their group fitness classes do the same. For instance, Hardbody Boot Camp uses nonstop interval training with minimal equipment, while Bangin’ Booty 101 classes—named for the first course offered at Harvard University in 1636—target specific muscle groups with free weights and body resistance. The instructors lead their sessions within a cavernous gym that sports a full-wall abstract mural.

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.
