Hamlet claimed that the alterations did little to solve the problem. Though the Long Beach Police Department issued CrossFit several noise violations in April, Wicks said that the gym does not violate any zoning or other laws.
“Each side, during this trial, put up sounds experts,” he said, “and [Hamlet’s] sound expert admitted at trial that it didn’t exceed the noise code ordinance of Long Beach.”
Pastuch said he is hopeful that the lawsuit will ultimately be dismissed. “I felt like I was able to tell [the judge] our story,” he said. “I wish we never had to go to the trial — it was costly and our name got dragged through the mud in multiple publications, and we felt like we didn’t deserve that because we’re doing everything we could to better the community.”
