"This luxury all-inclusive Rosewood resort recently partnered with ICE NYC, a Manhattan-based CrossFit and HIIT studio, to offer a "Crossfit on the Beach" program. Come during these specially designated weeks, and you can focus on getting enough exercise—warming up on the docks, working out by the ocean, and joining nutrition discussions—when you're not at the spa or sunning by the pool."
It’s Pride Month (!), and we couldn't go through June without doing something to celebrate this month of love. ICE NYC is partnering with OUTWOD to host events at BOTH GYMS on Saturday June 24th at 11:30am! It will be a big team WOD-based event. OUTWOD has grown into the largest national initiative for bringing together LGBTQ athletes and their allies to sweat together in a safe, inclusive group fitness environment and to raise funds for local LGBTQ charitable organizations. We interviewed Will Lanier, the founder of OUTWOD to get the backstory of this amazing organization.
First off, how the heck are you feeling now that Regionals is over?
I feel really good. It's been really nice to turn down the intensity and take some time off to chill. This was my third year competing as an individual and I walked away on Sunday the best I've ever been mentally; it was really cool to be able to see that growth. I still have gaps that I need to keep working on but I'm really excited to get back to work.
ICE NYC at Jumby Bay offers guests an upscale training experience with intuitive instruction. From warm-ups on the dock, to a "WOD" on the beach and burpees or pushups in the sand, guests have access to a wealth of fitness knowledge including training that is functional, intuitive, and easy to take home.
ICE NYC and Kettlebells 4 Autism have teamed up for a partner fundraiser and workout on April 29th at ICE NYC 59th Street. So we sat down with ICE NYC member and Cat Cervone for an insider scoop. For tips and information about upcoming events, how to get involved in KettleBells For Autism, and how KB4A started, read on.
Kettlebells 4 Autism was formed with the intention of using kettlebell training and sport as a platform to raise awareness about autism, and to raise funds for not-for-profit organizations supporting autism research and treatment. The organization, launched in February of 2013 has raised over $150,000 since its conception, so it’s clear that their method of combining autism awareness and sweating is helping them reach their goals.
However, whether you’re CrossFit convinced, CrossFit still on the fence, or CrossFit clueless (but intrigued), that doesn’t mean that walking through the doors of a box is not scary; trying any new fitness class or regime can be intimidating. To help ease some of those first-CrossFit-class nerves, I asked 8 of the ICE NYC CrossFit coaches for the ONE piece of advice they have for someone preparing for their first CrossFit class.
We have something for everyone: from interviews with Games athletes to individual stories of triumph and tribulation, from Whole30 recipes to nutrition and fitness tips, from exploration incentives to deep historical dives. So drop that bar-bell for a second, hop off the rower, and find a deeper connection with all things ICE.
