CrossFit has become just as well known for its grueling tire-lifting regimens as it has for the bare-bones “boxes” where the workouts typically take place. Brick New York, which opened last summer in Chelsea, is decidedly un-garagelike in its ambience—a glossy 13,000 square feet spread over two floors, with amenities galore. That’s not to say that Hulks-in-training won’t find the hard-core intervals typical of a CrossFit curriculum (from $32 per class); it’s just that, afterward, you can restore yourself with a trip to the locker-room sauna or a drink from the smoothie bar. Hourlong yoga classes to relieve throbbing muscles are offered, too.
