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.

He realized then that his past 15 years of exercising was just his warm-up.  Izzy is obsessed with 3 things; family, CrossFit & music. These are 3 things that he can not live without. 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.

Sabrina Glunt Member Experience Sabrina is a newcomer to New York City but not to fitness! She grew up in Ohio as one of the more overweight students in her class. In 2010 she made a change: she joined a gym, competed in several Kettlebell lifting competitions, and joined her high school’s cross country team. After high school, Sabrina went on to the Ohio State University to major in Health and Rehabilitation Sciences and taught fitness classes (like cycle, bootcamp, and circuit training) at the OSU recreation center. After graduating, she knew she wanted to continue working in the fitness world. Sabrina is very excited to be apart of the ICE family and can’t wait to see where her journey here will take her!

Billy Saunders Jr. Member Experience Billy Saunders Jr. is an Actor. Athlete. Artist. Advocate for Positive Vibes. He is passionate about life and pumped to be a part of ICE NYC’s fit fam. Born and raised in Southern Maryland (GO TERPS!), he fell equally in love with his small town country life as the pulse of a vibrating city around him. Along the way, he stumbled into a CrossFit gym and is hooked for life. CrossFit gives him the ability to join a community, family, and lifestyle bigger than himself and he loves the emotional and physical feats he can accomplish in a single class of likeminded athletes from all walks of life. Outside of the box, Billy is a Swim Instructor, TaeKwonDo Blackbelt, proficient juggler, and has worked professionally as an actor on both stage and screen. Nothing means more to him than sharing stories, creating relationships, and learning more everyday about what it means to be human. The way to Billy’s heart is sailing, a good smoothie, and a smile.  @bsaundsjr
