CrossFit SOBRO (South Bronx) is The Original Bronx Box – the first to bring CrossFit to the Bronx community. We were established in 2013 on the 4th floor of an old loft space in the Crotona Park section of The Bronx. We quickly flourished and, with our current Port Morris location, are proud to be making our own contribution to the revitalization of the South Bronx.
Our members are rich in their diversity, hailing from all parts of the Boogie Down as well as the outer boroughs, and bringing with them a unique swagger and a wide range of fitness goals. It is because of them that we are so passionate about improving health and fitness in this community, where it’s still more common to see a fried chicken joint than a vegetable stand.
At CFSBx, we follow a traditional CrossFit model. That means we are not your typical gym. We don’t have machines. We don’t have TVs or mirrors in which to primp. We have barbells, kettle-bells, and medicine balls. We have a pull-up rig and jump ropes; and we run around the block, not on a treadmill.
Not only do we run, drop heavy weights, and perform gymnastics movements here, but we cheer. We support each other’s fitness goals and always root for the last person standing – no matter what. This camaraderie that develops when people face challenges together is a key component of what makes our program truly effective and special. We are a community; we are #SOBROSTRONG; and we are proud of it.

All new students begin with our Foundations series of 6 classes, which introduces you to the fundamental movements that we use in CrossFit. Each class builds upon the previous ones to get you comfortable with the movements, with the coach's corrections of form, and with the class environment.
While CrossFit is based on the idea of sport and comraderie, we do understand that some people may prefer individualized attention, so we do offer personal training options as well.
All of our coaches are certified as CrossFit Level 1 Trainers, and three of them have attained the Level 2 certification. Each has his or her own specialty interests as well, whether that be weightlifting or gymnastics or endurance.
Our Head Coach, Roberto Murichi, is a former Marine with more than 15 years of personal training experience!
Absolutely! All pricing information is available through our website at crossfitsobro.com, as it does change periodically.
CrossFit is for everyone. Because of the functional exercises on which CrossFit is built, it is naturally scaleable for people of all ages and fitness levels, regardless of experience. We simply adjust the load and intensity of the movements to suit the individual. We get you better at the movements you do every day – standing up, sitting down, lifting boxes, carrying groceries, and the list goes on.
