Joseph Cosenza - OWNER

Joe ‘Marble’ Cosenza has been in the fitness industry for almost 10 years and is the owner of CrossFit Dark Athletics as well as Marble Weightlifting. Joe began weightlifting in 2008 and quickly knew the difficulty of the sport. For a brief period he transitioned to CrossFit from 2010-2013, but went back to weightlifting and began training at a small weightlifting gym in South Brooklyn and from there kept increasing knowledge until he was able to open CrossFit Dark Athletics with his partner, Matt Lebovits in 2016.

Joe’s passion is for competitive weightlifting. The program was always a staple at CrossFit Dark Athletics and has since evolved into it’s own Gym and facility! Joe is constantly improving his education and has been growing the Marble Weightlifting community and team since inception.
