CROM Martial Arts Will Call Wave Home
CROM Martial Training and CrossFit Rockaway Beach is set to have its grand reopening August 3rd, in its new location, The Wave Building at 88-08 Rockaway Beach Boulevard. After being closed for nine months due to Hurricane Sandy. CROM the only Mixed Martial Arts and CrossFit facility on the entire Rockaway peninsula, is ready to get back to business.
CROM MT, owned and operated by former Muay Thai champion and Coach Chris Romulo and his wife Sarah Romulo, offers a variety of class instruction. Offerings include but are not limited to Muay Thai, boxing, No Gi Brazilian jujitsu, and CrossFit workouts.
While CROM offers high level fight-prep training, the facility is also a full service gym focusing on all members no matter the level, in a friendly community and family driven environment.
CROM’s mission is to help members meet their goals in a fun and unconventional fashion that can assist in losing weight, getting in superior shape, learning Muay Thai boxing and various arts for the first time. CROM has a well-rounded martial arts training program, dedicated instructors, inventive training equipment, self-defense seminars as well as specific programs for kids, teens, and women.
CROM's newest offering, CrossFit, is aimed to increase endurance, strength, power, flexibility, coordination, and overall athleticism.
There is a Workout of the Day (WOD) that is always different from the workout done the previous day to provide variation, keep members interested in coming back, and therefore create results. Chris has been involved with CrossFit for some time now, using its methods and movements to get in fighting shape over the latter part of his 16 year professional/amateur Muay Thai career.
He will work alongside the highly regarded Strength and Conditioning coach Brian Donnelly, formerly of Aviator Sports. Donnelly is a 15-year veteran NYPD and Port Authority officer with an impressive coaching background working with UFC fighters and everyday fitness enthusiasts, alike.
The new facility in The Wave Building will boast close to 3000 square feet of top level CrossFit and Boxing and Martial Arts equipment. The CrossFit inventory will consist of equipment such as kettlebells, climbing rigs, gymnastic rings and ropes, and power-lifting boxes.
The CROM MT and CrossFit Rockaway Beach grand opening is slated for August 3rd, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Visitors will have the opportunity to try free 10- minute workouts to get a taste of what CrossFit is all about. There will also be Martial Arts demonstrations, contests and t-shirt and equipment giveaways.
