This week is jam-packed with exciting events. On Friday February 25, we kick off the 2022 CrossFit Open. The Open is your chance to get a real taste of CrossFit and see how you measure up against everyone in the US. Then on Saturday February 26, we are working together to reconfigure the gym to make Sand & Steel better than ever in our Gym Reconfiguration Meeting. Afterward, Member Sean Dunphy is hosting a board game night after we’ve completed updates. Then on February 27, Mike Hoard and Coach Paul are leading a special beginner friendly trail run at Sand & Steel. So clear your schedule for this weekend, and join Sand & Steel for a weekend of fitness, health, and friendship.
Note, we have a special CrossFit class time for Saturday (class starts at 11AM). Coach Paul is privately coaching veterans from the Wounded Warrior Project at 10AM.

We are ordering some new equipment for our CrossFit Class and our upcoming Powerlifting & Mobility Class. But we need your help to prepare the gym so that we will have a place to install it. Basically, we need to move some equipment around in the gym to free up some space. We have specialized equipment to make moving the gear easier, but we’ll still need a few people to move everything safely.
We’ll be providing sandwiches and snacks for everyone during the event so you can keep your strength up! More information
