The 2013 lawsuit claims the sound of free weights and barbells crashing to the ground starts as early as 6 a.m. and continues throughout the day.

One third-floor resident tells the newspaper her family is often woken up by sounds and vibrations from the gym.
A CrossFit gym in South Park Slope, Brooklyn, drew similar complaints in 2013 from neighbors who said those who work out there are just too loud.
As 1010 WINS’ Holli Haerr reported, one of the CrossFit 718 gym’s neighbors near Fifth Avenue and 22nd Street in Brooklyn said there is a lot of yelling and grunting going on when people work out, and that is not all.
“The walls – they feel like they’re doing demo; the walls shaking,” one neighbor said.MORE NEWS: Sorokin, Nelson Lead Islanders To Win Over Coyotes
