"When Desbrisay & Smith Architects designed I.C.E., a Crossfit gym, they wanted it to evoke Manhattan architecture. As a result, clean lines and brass details hide the robust acoustic and technical systems needed to buffer the sound of the weight rooms in a multi-use building".

While they certainly recommend balance, moderation, and at least some variety, the fitness coaches at ICE NYC all have their own “personal superfood”, you know, that food they reach for almost daily for the purposes of nutrition, convenience, and habit. As an added bonus, their go-to’s are also delicious and easy, they’d have to be for someone living fitness to want to eat them so often. Find out what our coaches are eating on the reg and consider adding them into your own food rotation:
While serious athletes have been reaping the benefits of interval training workouts for years, HIIT- alternating periods of short, intense anaerobic exercise with less intense recovery periods- has recently become all the rage in the fitness industry. Since we opened in February of 2016, ICE NYC has offered our version of a HIIT class, called HAIL. Our HAIL class truly embodies our movement philosophy that our bodies are designed to move fluidly by helping our athletes run faster, move quicker, lift heavier, and live more balanced.
While increasing the efficiency of your workout is definitely a major benefit of our HAIL, especially for those athletes trying to do it all, the benefits to your body and mind go way beyond saving time.
What can people expect from your class?
You can expect to leave exhausted and sweaty but also proud and motivated. I really aim to make the environment fun. Nothing pleases me more than to see someone smiling while they bust their ass to make that change.
Meet April members of the month: Jeff Risman, Kendrick Tom, and Allison Schneiderman.
ICE NYC at Jumby Bay offers guests an upscale training experience with intuitive instruction.

As an instructor, I love that I can tell a story through my music selection in class. The genre doesn’t matter, but the instruments, beats, and lyrics come together to create a soulful experience. I play hip-hop, techno, dance music, old school Motown, Spanish music, instrumental, rock, and songs that don’t neatly fit into one genre. If I hear a song, and it moves or takes me somewhere, I will figure out a way to include it into my class playlist.
