Welcome to The Neighborhood Project, home of CrossFit NBHD and Old Town Alexandria’s newest source for group fitness, personalized and sports-specific programming and nutrition counseling. 


We are a community of diverse individuals with a shared commitment to health, wellness and maximizing performance.


Our coaching team has a unique combination of formal education, professional certifications and real-world experience. Our coaches have trained CrossFit Games athletes, fitness newbies and everyone in between, and want each member to achieve their health and wellness goals, whether it be getting a first pull-up, making a sanctional, losing a few pounds or something else entirely.


CrossFit NBHD is committed to excellence.


We look beyond fitness and empower our members to improve their overall wellness in and outside the gym. From daily WODs and personalized programming to nutrition and recovery guidance — our gym is equipped for everyone no matter your goals or where you are in your journey.


We look beyond community and lend our passion and expertise to improve the lives within the NBHD and beyond the walls of our gym. We strive to create an inclusive environment where everyone feels welcomed, motivated, and empowered. Fostering that community is a driving force behind all that we do.



Adam Murphy, CF-L3



With over 13 years in the fitness industry, I have played the part of an athlete, coach, student, and more. This paved the way to providing personalized programming and nutrition to athletes varying in age, experience, and lifestyle. Training and eating right doesn’t have to be complex, which is why my mission is to provide every athlete with the tools and support to reach their goals.
