CrossFit NYC / The Black Box Hiring Full-Time Coaches

While CrossFit NYC is already one of the largest CrossFit gyms in the United States, we continue to grow quickly, driven by happy members' word-of-mouth. As a result, we're now looking to hire several more full-time coaches over the first half of next year.

Thus far, we've hired and promoted entirely from our own membership. Now, however, we're expanding our search to the CrossFit community at large. We think a job at CFNYC is both a great career opportunity, and a chance to impact the lives and athletic performance of a large number of people.

We treat our coaches as professionals; it is our goal to enable all of our full-time coaches to earn $100,000 or more per year. We pay our coaches a base starting salary of $40,000+ per year (plus health insurance) to coach 20 hours of classes for us. Coaches are then free to do private training, and may use our facility at no charge - coaches keep 100% of their personal training revenue. With that arrangement, we believe strong coaches should be able to earn $100,000-120,000 a year, without working more than 40 hours a week.

Applicants are required to have a CrossFit Level 1 Certification, a strong background in CrossFit and related fields (whether through degree, certification, or real-world coaching experience) and a well-endorsed track record of coaching CrossFit in a group context.

To apply for a position, please send your resume, three references, and a short cover letter explaining why you're the obvious choice for the job, to We will respond within 7 days. If it appears you may be a fit, our next step is an interview, followed by our oberving you actually coaching an evening of classes at CrossFit NYC.

We hope to bring on a new coach as soon as January 1st. However, if you're interested but unavailable until a later date, please also consider applying; as mentioned above, we will be hiring throughout the year, and would be happy to hold a future slot for you if you're a great fit.

If you have additional questions beyond the information here, feel free to email us at We look forward to hearing from you!
