Sure, CrossFit Syracuse has the trappings of most exercise facilities to be found in Central New York.

So, what gives? Why is CrossFit, according to Forbes contributor Patrick Rishe, “one of the fastest growing sports in America which only looks to build upon the financial and popular successes it has achieved in just one short year?”

“The workouts are killer, the coaching is extremely important and the scalability makes CrossFit a universal opportunity,” said CrossFit Syracuse co-owner Ellen Spicer.

“But, in my opinion, the most ‘special’ way that CrossFit is different is the profound sense of community and camaraderie that exists within the walls of a CrossFit box. The support, friendship and inspiration that you get from the community empowers you to be your very best.”
