Izzy Levy Izzy Levy is a Level 2 CrossFit Coach, Personal Trainer and Certified Nutritionist. A CrossFit enthusiast, Izzy brings passion, spirit and discipline to ICE NYC.  His introduction to CrossFit was a humbling experience.

They drive him to succeed and condition him to elevate beyond the status quo. They are a never ending obsession. They always evolve into a new and exciting form. Izzy loves life & he loves people. He is compassionate and strives to motivate others.

Allison Zerkle Making cool stuff happen + member love Community and connecting with people is at the core of what Allison loves. After moving to New York and hoping to find a CrossFit community that compared to her gym family in Columbus, she found ICE and quickly realized that this place would be her second home in the city. With a background in yoga and coaching hockey, Allison finds great importance in both functional movement and using her workouts as a moving meditation of sorts. You can find her at ICE UES plotting our next awesome community event, slinging smoothies, picking up heavy things and putting them down. When shes not at the gym you will most likely catch her at the beach or in the water listening to some tunes.

Amanda Smith Member Experience Amanda is a CrossFit/People/Puppy enthusiast. As a Colorado native, a fit life has always been the best life for her. As an ex volleyball and softball player, she's always had the tiniest bit of competitive edge as well. After moving to New York, however, she discovered the world of picking up heavy things, but beyond that, she discovered the best darn people she could've hoped to have on her team in the CrossFit community. That was just about two years ago, and she's never been happier. Stop on by and say "hi" to the new gal...especially if you've got a furry friend!

Jackie Kantor Member Experiance Fitness is something that has always been a part of Jackie's life.  From a young age Jackie was playing soccer, softball and gymnastics (hence her total gracefulness... NOT) which taught her to love competition.  Before starting Crossfit Jackie was an active runner. Her personal trainer at the time got her hooked on 5K races where she was constantly trying beat her time with each race.  Jackie also has 2 half marathons under her belt and plans to continue to keep challenging herself as a runner. Knowing she would fall in love with the competitiveness and athleticism, a friend introduced Jackie to Crossfit... and was she right! After her first on ramp class she was hooked!! Jackie works a corporate job during the week and on the weekend she loves pushing herself and others at ICE TriBeCa to achieve what they think is impossible.
