CF Solace 3Hard-core CrossFitters are going to groan collectively as they read this, but I can’t not say this right away. CrossFit Solace has flat irons.

Yes, the city’s newest home for snatches and soreness commiserating, which officially opened the last week of October, comes equipped with both a special sprung floor that can absorb dropping barbell vibrations and locker room design and amenities like hair-styling devices worthy of a spa.

It’s a untested combination on the New York City fitness landscape and is sure to set them apart from the get-go. We stopped by the mega-space to bring you this sneak peek inside. (And do our hair.) —Lisa Elaine Held
