Since 2014 CrossFit Kingsboro has built a bridge that connects Clinton Hills, Prospect Heights, Crown Heights, and Bedford Stuyvesant. Our goal is to bring community based fitness to the area. We believe that fitness goals can be easily achieved and maintained within the framework of a community. Our programming is strength based and intended to be inclusive to all clients regardless of current physical ability. Our workouts and programming templates are constantly varied to prevent stagnation and boredom in fitness goals.


CrossFit Kingsboro is one of the largest CrossFit facilities within the 5 boroughs of New York City. We have a total of 4,000 square feet split between three rooms. We also have 4 showers complete with towel service, hair dryers soap etc and 2 bathrooms. On top if it all we're also neat freaks and pride ourselves on the cleanliness and organization of our facilities.



Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and women things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.”

Coaching Staff

"Each person holds so much power within themselves that needs to be let out. Sometimes they just need a little nudge, a little direction, a little support, a little coaching, and the greatest things can happen.

Zachariah hodge

Zach was a very active child, exhibited through his involvement on a swim team throughout middle school, and basketball & soccer in high school. Additionally, he played several intramural sports in college. Unfortunately, those activities were derailed when he tore his meniscus playing basketball. After about a year of physical therapy, Zach started running to get himself back into shape. After a decline rapid decline in weight from 10k races, he saw a commercial about CrossFit and decided to "give it a try."

Like most of us Zach's first couple of months were very humbling. He only went in twice a week and definitely cherry picked his workouts. With time he grew to respect, admire, value and love the strength and conditioning program known as CrossFit. It has made me him a better human being, a better trainer, and definitely harder to kill. Zach is an active CrossFit competitor and continues to perform in competitions all over the country.

He enjoys Crossfit for the competitive aspect - he has participated in numerous competitions in the tri state area and was a teamathlete in the 2009 Crossfit games for Crossfit South Brooklyn.  What he loves most about CrossFit, though, is the long term health benefits that it elicits.

He believes that fitness and fun go hand in hand and loves to share that message with anyone who will listen. He is a gifted musician with an encyclopedic knowledge of music history. Definitely the person to talk to about your favorite obscure band.

Ashlyn Allen 

As a child Ashlyn was extremely active in all sports as a young child. She tried a piece of every pie from gymnastics to basketball with her longest stint in soccer. After a move to a different state in middle school she never go back in to sports but her athletic interest never left. It took some time to rekindle that flame, however. In high school she could barely run a mile.  In college she started focusing on gaining control of my fitness and creating my own workouts. She found CrossFit after my mom (at the time extremely overweight) invited her to go to a class with her. She was sore for weeks, but inevitably hooked.  As her character began to morph in college and she found her passions she decided to further her education in Public Health. She has a passion for eliminating health disparities, increasing access to food security, and understanding social determinants of health. All of this led to her desire to help people become the best versions of themselves from the inside out.

CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program that delivers fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Combat, survival, sports, and life reward this kind of fitness. 

The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect fitness application for any committed individual, regardless of experience. We scale load and intensity so our programs can be used for elderly individuals with heart disease or cage fighters one month out from televised bouts.
