It only took CrossFit NYC seven years to become an overnight success. We were the 16th affiliate, starting as an informal workout club in Central Park. When the weather turned cold, we subleased space in a globo gym, only to get kicked out months later due to our boisterous WODs. So, we found another globo gym. And then were kicked out of that one, too. After getting tossed from six gyms, we gave in and signed a first lease of our own in 2007.
