NEW YORK (AP) - A CrossFit gym located in the first-floor of a New York City condo building must close after upstairs neighbors sued over excessive exercise-induced noise.

The New York Post reports (https://bit.ly/1LvhoEG ) Saturday a Manhattan judge ruled Brick NYC must shut down because residents have a right to “relative peace” in their apartments.

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.

CrossFit offers classes of a military-style mix of weight-lifting, core conditioning and cardio exercises.

Brick NYC has appealed the ruling.

The Post says a two-bedroom apartment in the building recently sold for $3.4 million.

One third-floor resident tells the newspaper her family is often woken up by sounds and vibrations from the gym.
