    Brooklyn's Strongest

    Who we are & what we do:

    CrossFit Coney Island is the home of Brooklyn’s tightest, results-oriented fitness community.

    We have two main goals: getting you in the best shape of your life and having fun along the way.

    By design, CrossFit is broad, functional, and inclusive -- we take that to the next level. With the support of a community built on mutual respect, you’ll be part of a program that’s tough, dynamic, and never boring (we promise). Our trainers are with you every step of the way to coach, push, and encourage. Together, we’ll run faster, lift heavier, and drive longer. The bottom line? You’ll have to put in the work, but you won’t have to do it alone.

    Even though you will be part of a team and community, we realize every single athlete is an individual. We make it a point to keep each member accountable and on track by helping you identify and understand your individual goals, needs and challenges, then create a plan of action to address them.

    CFCI Kidz!

    CrossFit Kids is meant to be BIG fun for all ages. Broad-Inclusive-General fun. Fun means we provide an active alternative to sedentary pursuits, which means less childhood obesity and all-around better health for our children. Further, the needs of second graders and high-school varsity wrestlers differ by degree and not kind; the program is scalable for any age or experience level and accounts for the varied maturation status one can find in a class full of kids.

    CFCI Strength Barbell Club

    The CFCI Strength Barbell Club (SBBC) is a small group class, where athletes get individualized attention and focus on building strength in the most functional movements: squat, deadlift, bench, and strict press.

    CFCI Weightlifting Barbell Club

    The CFCI Weightlifting Barbell Club (WLBBC) is geared for athletes who are looking to improve their Olympic weightlifting. This program is suitable for all levels of experience but at least 3 months of weightlifting/CrossFit experience is recommended.


    Classes focus on the classic Olympic Weightlifting lifts (snatch, clean& jerk) as well as supplemental movements, complexes, and technique improving drills and general strength.

    Get To Know Our Coaches

    Coach Elie

    Head Coach

    Street art enthusiast. Owner of the world's largest air guitar collection.

    In 2010 (1 year before he knew about CrossFit), Coach Elie suffered a back injury and for about 6 months his left leg was measured at 80% paralyzed. Neurologists told him his left leg would never recover and that he would always have a severe limp and to run again was laughable. Thanks to some determination and luck, Elie fully recovered. Through CrossFit, Elie overcame the pain and paralysis and is now stronger, and more fit, than he was before the injury. Overcoming this dramatic and daunting task inspired Elie to open a gym of his own to give athletes in the community the opportunity to write their own stories of success.


    Before opening CFCI, Elie worked for 8 years as an ABA therapist in a school for children with autism. Elie loves working with these kids so much he still spends his afternoons as the director of the school's after-school program.

    Coach "Selfie" Scott

    Family man and avid selfie-taker, few people ever get the privilege of meeting someone with a heart as big as Scott's; and we're lucky enough to see him everyday at 6a.m.!

    (We used this picture because we're pretty sure it's the only one of Scott that's not a selfie.)

    Coach Ben

    Coach Ben may not be the largest athlete on the floor but whatever he lacks in physical stature he makes up for with heart and dedication. This guy can fight through anything. Try to beat him in a burpee workout, we dare you.

    Coach Delfina

    A Pilates instructor and CrossFit athlete, Delfina’s passion for health and wellness stems from a strong foundation in core work. Her philosophy builds off of the CrossFit motto: Core to Extremity. After graduating from Brooklyn College, Delfina worked closely with physical therapists and always stresses the importance of learning the basics and stabilization before fast and hard movements. Don't be fooled, however, she knows when to crank up the intensity.
