CrossFit Hoboken

8/21/2008:

With CrossFit opening up in downtown Hoboken a couple months ago, I finally got around to adding them to the directory!

Read all about it, and check out the Hoboken411 video below. Welcome to Hoboken, CrossFit!

What is CrossFit?

crossfit-hoboken-squat.jpgCrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide.

Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist.

The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.

The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. Our terrorist hunters, skiers, mountain bike riders and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.

Thousands of athletes worldwide have followed our workouts posted daily on this site and distinguished themselves in combat, the streets, the ring, stadiums, gyms and homes.

We also publish the CrossFit Journal, designed to support the CrossFit community detailing the theory, techniques, and practice d by our coaches in our gym, in essence bringing your garage or gym into ours, making you a part of the CrossFit family.

Description: High intensity workout program combining the best of strength training, aerobics and endurance. Suitable for all ages, shapes and forms.

    Basically they took the P90 X workout and rolled with it.

    At least the rates are a good deal cheaper than the ones in NYC.
    I’m a huge fan of crossfit, and crossfit hoboken. They’re great guys there. If you try it once you’ll see why people get obsessed with it.

    Ok been going to the Classes for about a month and can honestly say there is no workout ever that challenges you more on a day to day basis. So happy with the club that I feel the need to write this.

    I looked up the P90 X workout and think that may be the dumbest thing ever. It simply mindless circuit training.
    Anyway just wanted to post my results after one month.

    I had 2 bad knees and could only do 1 pullup the day I walked in. After my short stay I can do 6 pullups and my knees feel good for the first time in years. I could never pay so little to a doctor for the same results.

    The price may seem steep at first but it’s not like the big gyms. You get personal training on a daily basis. The coaches (who are excellent at what they do) make sure that you are doing everything correctly and safely. Personal training in most clubs can cost over 1000 for 20 sessions. And the results are better and much more enjoyable because you do everything with a group. You will make friends at CFH. I maybe met 2 people in the long years I belonged to NYSC.
    Anyway I love this place and would pay twice as much if they asked me to.

    Ok, everyone that reads this wil have to understand my bias towards CrossFit Hoboken. Prior to joining I had a stiff shoulder and 2 bad knees. On my first day, the workout lasted about 10 minutes and I was wiped out. Could only do 1 pullup at the time. Today, less than 2 months later I can do 7 pullups and my knees don’t hurt at all anymore. If I went to a doctor and told him my ailments he would give me tylenol and charge me for the advice. Probably much more than a membership to CrossfitHoboken.

    The prices do at first seem steep. But CrossFit is not like Club H. You don’t walk into CrossFit and workout on your own. Its not a health club. Its a working Gym. You are being trained by professionals the entire time. If you were to go to NYSC and ask for 20 sessions a month of personal training, you’d probably pay in the 1000’s and not see much improvement. These trainers do much more than move the pin up and down for you. On top of that, they’re really great guys and they keep the workout fun and exciting. I suggest everyone who wants to improve their lives tries at least the introductory class. It’s free after all and you can see if its for you. Once again, I feel like this post was the least I could do for the people who literally took years off my life in such a short period of time.

    Yeah these guys (Craig and Eddie ) at CrossFit Hoboken are so not on the doomed list.Your fitness is doomed if you don’t invest some time and money to improve it.

    I’ve done crossfit for some time now and I gotta say it’s the only program that really works. Im not talking about a program for only fit and experienced people. This thing will take your weak, your old, your overweight , your injured, what have you and turn them into strong, solid, healthy and finely tuned machines.

    But definitely check Crossfit Hoboken out for yourself. I believe their free classes are priced sanely enough.

    Great video.

    I’ve done P90X and I’ve done Crossfit. There’s no comparison. Crossfit is the better program. Prices are a little more than other gyms but you get constant one on one. Check it out for yourself.

    It’s actually pretty amazing to see how much Crossfit has picked up across the nation. Take some time and check out what it really is before you post something as silly as this comment. Cost-wise, this is an INCREDIBLE deal for what you’re getting. Not to mention all the things money can’t buy you access to (eg. interpersonal stuff).

    Crossfit is also not to be compared with something like Empire Fitness. Its a totally different kind of thing. Check it out before you doom it so quickly.

    this gym is great. and for the personal attention you get well worth the cost. its all class based. you can’t go and work out on your own. you show up to one of their classes (4 held every day) and they review the workout, the proper form, set parameters for which you can measure yourself (as many reps as possible in 20 minutes, or how fast to do a certain amount of reps, etc, etc) and they time and/or count your score for you. they have a blog style website where you post your results and when a workout is done before they give you the link to the past workout so you can monitor your progress. i just started there but am not only impressed by the crossfit program itself but even more so with the 2 owners. super nice guys. always trying to bend over backward for their members. if you show up late they always find a way to get you in, they open on a lot of holidays and add mid-day classes on days when people typically have off, they give tons of advice on nutrition and stuff you can do at home. and they definitely use positive encouragement over negative without ever letting you “cheat”. exactly as it should be. for new members they also give a month of specialized training to get you started with confidence so you’re not lost when you’re mixed in the group. if you’re thinking of it, just google it and check out reviews and stuff, and if you think its worth it, try for a month and measure your results. i’ll say the biggest seller for me is that this setup with these guys motivates me to workout more than i was able to motivate myself when i was at nysc and i get a better workout in a shorter amount of time. i know it sounds like i work for them but i’m just so impressed i wanted to drop my comments here. the only negative thing about it is its small so when more than 10 people show up it gets tough to organize, but so far they’ve always found a way to get everyone in.
