We’ve been in the game since 2007 and in that time have been a pillar of safe, fun, and inclusive fitness. Riding the energy and professionalism that CFSBK owner David Osorio had (up until this year) been putting in as the Director of the Northeast Regionals, you can expect the East Coast Gambit to exceed your expectations. CrossFit South Brooklyn boasts over 12,000 sq/ft of space and is centrally located in the Gowanus section of Brooklyn. We’re easily accessible from the Atlantic/Pacific subway station, the Union Street stop on the R/N line, LIRR’s Atlantic Terminal, and a few minutes from the BQE.
