CrossFit Rockaway Beach storms back


IMG_2354Rockaway’s fitness community was glad to see CROM Martial Training reopen this month. Now situated in the historic Wave building at 88-08 Rockaway Beach Boulevard, the facility has expanded to include a full CrossFit WOD schedule.

Owned by the North American Muy Thai champion Chris Romulo and his wife Sarah, the new CrossFit Rockaway Beach offers a diverse schedule of CrossFit WODs, Muy Thai, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. There are classes for kids, teens, and ladies.

CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program with roots in military and civilian defense training. The WODs (or, Workout of the Day for the uninitiated) feature constantly varied, high intensity functional movements, which change daily in order to keep athletes challenged. CrossFit gyms have exploded in popularity in recent years as an alternative to more traditional gyms. While it can be intimidating, all of the WODs can be scaled, and participants of all ages are invited to give it a try.

Chris and Sarah’s reopening last week was warmly received by the community, under the banner of “We Stormed Back!” While they are presently up and running in the Wave building, they are expecting to move to a larger space in the neighborhood later this year. Stay tuned for more details, and drop in for a workout!
