Finally, we finish with some extra core and flexibility work before sending you off to take on the rest of your day. You'll be recharged and ready to go!
Who Designed This Program?
Short Circuit was designed by Coaches David and Brett combining their cumulative 20+ years of experience in the fitness industry. Their goal was to design a community based functional fitness class that anyone could hop into and get a safe and effective workout without getting into some of the more complex technical movements we typically see in CrossFit style group classes.
Brett has been coaching CrossFit, large boot camps classes, TRX classes, and working one on one with clients for the last 8 years in Boston, Seattle, and Brooklyn. He has worked with people at different skill levels from 14-73 years old and loves the challenge of finding movements that can work for everybody.
David has been in the fitness industry for over 12 years and has owned CrossFit South Brooklyn since 2007. His client base ranges from 3 to 80 years old and has worked with thousands of people helping them reach their fitness goals. He loves bringing his experience and passion for teaching movement to every single person willing to take the first step into the gym.
Schedule & Location
Short Circuit classes meet at CrossFit South Brooklyn (597 Degraw Street between 3rd and 4th Avenues) located in the heart of Gowanus. We have served the local fitness community for nearly 10 years, growing from grassroots park-based workouts to our current location, which has two spaces with a total footprint of over 11,000 square feet. In addition to our spacious facility, we also have brand new locker rooms with showers, towel service, and bath products available for your convenience.

We're hoping to expand this program to earlier mornings, evenings and weekends. Sign up here and you'll be the first to know about these new offerings!
Are there any prerequisites for Short Circuit?
No, Short Circuit can be scaled for any fitness level, and is extremely welcoming of all levels. We are here to help everyone achieve their goals, one drop of sweat at a time! No experience is required to take a Short Circuit class. Just show up and get fit!
What if I can't do something?
Every movement we teach and perform will have a variety of scaling options, so you’ll be challenged whether you’re flying through a set of 10 Push-Ups or still working on your first one. Our seasoned coaches can modify your workouts specifically for your abilities all while motivating you to do your best and to go a little further, faster, longer than you thought possible.
Is Short Circuit a CrossFit class?
While some movements will be familiar, Short Circuit does not include barbell training or higher-skilled calisthenics (like Kipping Pull-Ups or Handstand Push-Ups). You will get a a kick-ass workout, though, and as with our other specialty offerings like Active Recovery, Anti-Gravity, Pilates, and Yoga for Athletes, it's up to you to decide how Short Circuit might fit into your overall training. That's why members with CrossFit Group class memberships can use their existing memberships to attend any of these classes!
