CrossFit Level 1, CrossFit Coaches Prep
Having had a not-so-great experience dropping in to another NYC CrossFit gym a few years before, I have been insanely skeptical of the gyms in Manhattan. Some overcharge you, some program workouts that aren't that great, and some are just straight rude. In any case, my experience at 5th was absolutely none of that. Coaches Bobby and Lauren were insanely nice to me, made sure I had all of things I needed for the workout (even replaced some plates for me mid-workout that had cracked!), and were patient in showing me some of their warm up drills. I can't recommend dropping in here enough, my only regret was that I didn't come in more!
