The spirit of a Crossfit room : an example at Crossfit Virtuosity (New-York)

The first thing you will notice when you walk into CrossFit Virtuosity.  There are no shoes allowed.  Our training is more like that at a dojo, gymnastics gym or yoga studio.  Our training space is sacred and we try to keep it clean.  The next thing you will notice is that there is very little equipment.  We train our bodies as naturally as we can with as little equipment as we can.  The magic is in the movements not in the machines.  At CrossFit Virtuosity, our emphasis is on space – space to move, to jump, to lift, to balance, to climb, to tumble, or in other words, train as an athlete, unencumbered by equipment, people and/or other “stuff” in the way.
