Your bikini-clad pals won’t stop blabbing about CrossFit, but its intimidating, bare-bones gyms have yet to woo you.
Resistance is futile at the Athletic Club Northeast, where you can now find the ridiculously effective strength and conditioning program alongside high-end amenities like a full-service locker room and cafe.
You can still kick your own ass in a WOD (Workout of the Day) with wall balls, burpees, and kettlebells, but afterward, relax in the sauna or hit the indoor pool for a dip.
Looking for more of a challenge? Stretch your limbs (and limits) during Frogman — amphibious challenges that combine swimming with CrossFit (next session is July 17).
You’ll be lapping the competition in no time.
