I recently joined this gym in February after moving to the area and having been a member of a gym were I use to live. All of the members were very friendly, and all of the coaches were welcoming and extremely knowledgeable. Shortly after joining, the gym changed ownership and the new owner made new and improved updates (new jump ropes and more time clocks). I’m very happy to be a member here, and I would definitely recommend this gym to anyone in the area. It is an intimate space with classes that fill up, but that is just a testament to the great coaching and intensity of the classes!! I’m looking forward to continuing working out here and improving my abilities!
I joined CrossFit Jersey City back in March having no previous CrossFit or weightlifting experience and with no idea what to expect. At that time, I was just running a few times a week but was getting bored with it and not getting any faster. Simply put, my goal was to add CrossFit to my routine in order to lose weight, get stronger and become faster. Today I continue to work on and achieve those goals— I’m losing weight, all my weightlifting has increased and have taken almost 40 minutes off my marathon time PR. It is to the credit of the coaches, ownership and members that make this such a great community
My best friend and I visited during our vacation and took a class with Janine. She and Russ could not have been more welcoming and awesome. The workout was challenging and scalable, the facility was clean and well-equipped, and in short we could not have been more happy to find this place.
I’m not really the reviewing type but CFJC makes me feel emotions I never thought I’d have for a gym.
If you’re new to the area or just looking for a gym to join, you NEED to check this place out.
I’ve never been the kind of person who’s disciplined enough to train in a gym alone, so I’m usually drawn to studio classes and personal trainers to help me stay active. However, I gotta say, even after visiting a ton of fancy studios via classpass, CFJC is truly the best. This place has one of the most welcoming communities ever. You won’t experience any kind of clique-ish or scene-like vibe and everyone is always so supportive and eager to see you succeed.
As for the coaches, I have nothing but amazing things to say. All of the coaches are genuinely invested in each member’s fitness goals and they’ll coordinate with each other to make sure you’re on track to achieve them. They’re all incredibly knowledgeable so you know you’re in good hands and won’t get injured.
As for the classes, there are scaling options for all of the WODs, so you’re sure to feel challenged no matter your skill level. Before each workout, the coaches will review the movements and give you pro-tips on how to survive the WOD so you’re never entering any exercise blindly. In addition to the regular crossfit classes, there are plenty of class times and class types to work on your technique.
Also, their late cancellation/no show fee is probably the most reasonable one that I’ve seen — it’s $5 and all of the money collected is donated to a charity called Barbells for Boobs. If you do a quick google search, you can see how much money they’ve raised for the cause.
I’m sad to be leaving this place but I strongly encourage anyone who’s looking for something new to check out CFJC. You won’t be disappointed.
An extremely welcoming and friendly bunch of regulars. All levels of ability are absolutely included with scaled and modified options for every workout.
The coaches are extremely attentive during every WOD and they give excellent technical tips and instruction for all movements at the beginning of each class.
Well worth trusting these folks for all your activity needs!
I have been training at CFJC for the past 2 months now and love it.
As an avid gym goer of 20+years I would often find myself going through similar workouts time and time again, not really making the progress I wanted, and usually ended up investing in private training sessions to address these issues. Expensive!
The small classes they run at CFJC ensure that you get great attention from their training staff. Every day is a new workout so you never get bored, you constantly learn new skills, and there are all levels of athlete to work with or against during classes.
I’ve been going to CFJC for about 2.5 years – basically since the day they opened. The community at CFJC is stellar – your classmates will cheer you on through every workout and celebrate with you afterwards. Classes are kept small so each athlete can receive individual attention from the coaches. Because the gym is small, the owners are able to cater to the requests of their athletes and have done a wonderful job of providing what people want.
In addition to standard CrossFit classes, the gym offers a weightlifting club, focusing on the Olympic lifts (snatch and clean-and-jerk) and a running club. If you’re looking for a tight-knit community of athletes who will help you push to reach your goals, CFJC is the place!
