$0.00 Your First Class is Free

A strength class that shapes your butt and chisels your stomach. Featuring the hip thruster and accessories for the hips and core, Butts and Guts not only makes you functionally strong, it makes you look Instagram fit

The Butts and Guts Class

Butts and Guts is a strength class that shapes your butt and leans out your stomach.  Butts and Guts is an original program built by Dawn Anderson.  In designing the Butts and Guts class, Dawn draws from the conjugate powerlifting system, the works of Bret Contreras, and Muscle Activation Techniques.

Central in its design is the maintenance and restoration of proper hip and lower back stability.  A true Exercise-is-Medicine based class, Butts and Guts reduces unnecessary stress on your knees and loading on your back caused by poor body mechanics.

Class Overview

Butts and Guts builds a foundation of strength for all activities you might want to do.  Whether you share Dawn’s passion for powerlifting, or you just want to run better with fewer injuries, Butts and Guts is a safe and highly effective class.

What about my Arms?  Butts and Guts incorporates a wide variety of pushing exercises (e.g. burpees, presses, etc.) and pulling exercises (bent over row, curls, dumbbell cleans, etc.)

Scaling Butts & Guts. Paul and Dawn design the Butts and Guts class so that is accessible to beginners and challenging to advanced athletes.

In-Person Training: our Butts & Guts class is available as part of our personal training program.  It is one on one and highly customized to the individual member.

    Mitchell Scott

    I like the “Butt & Guts” class because it focuses so heavily on the lower body and core. When I joined Sand & Steel 2 months ago, my core, glutes and quads were areas I wanted to strengthen, especially my core! I also love the fact I’m completely exhausted when the class is over.

      Thank you for the review Mitchell. I’ve added 100 rewards points to your account for sharing your thoughts with us on the class. Appreciate it very much. -Paul

    “Butts and Guts” is a great class because it focuses on two primary areas I have been wanting to strengthen, specifically the core because a strong core is needed for every movement in crossfit! I also really enjoy that we do similar movements every week like the hip thrusters and I can see myself improving and getting stronger.

    • Paul Roberts

      Thank you for sharing your feedback. I agree those are some of the key elements of the class.

    The “butts and guts” class kicks my butt. I appreciate the heavy emphasis on lower body and the amount of volume one is pushed to do in the class. I’ve seen gains in every aspect of my lower body after only a month or two of taking this class consistently. Highly recommend!

    • Paul Roberts

      Volume and simplicity are key elements of this class. Thanks for the feedback.

    Personally, legs and core is my fav workout of all time. I’d chose those workouts every time, all the time, if it wouldn’t leave the rest of my body so unbalanced and weak.
    I thoroughly enjoy each class that S&S offers. However, I love the specific focus that the “Butts & Guts” class offers. For me, the glutes are the hardest to target without recruiting the other muscles to “help”. In more the more dynamic/compound CrossFit movements, it’s harder for me to properly target/engage the glutes/core. B&G solves that problem. The class also offers more ways challenge them than I could ever come up with on my own; I never get bored. 😀 Since starting the class, there is a noticeable improvement in my strength and physique. I definitely recommend taking this class.

Policies When You Are Sick: To protect all clients and trainers, we won’t train you if you have visible symptoms of being sick. It doesn’t matter whether you are contagious or not. Exception: you have symptoms and a Dr.’s note that says you are not contagious. It’s impossible to sterilize every surface you might touch. Because we have a responsibility to our other clients, we will turn you away if you come to the gym sick or display any symptoms of being sick. You might say, “I’m not sick… it’s just allergies.” If it’s just allergies, take some Claritin and you won’t have any symptoms. Symptoms = no workout.

4) Checking In

Checking in: you are required to check in with your personal trainer, through the app, or online at our member connect portal. While coaches may remind you, it is ultimately your responsibility to check in. If you do not check in, the session will be counted as a no-show, even if you were in fact present.  It doesn’t matter if you sign the COVID-19 log either.  If you do not check-in, you will be assigned a no-show fee.

For the sake of any ambiguity, you should only check in to a session that you actually attend.  From time to time we encounter a member that tries to bypass our check in policy by checking into a session that they do not actually attend.  The first time this happens you’ll be issued a warning.  The second time, you’ll be charged a $50 false check-in fee.  Do not attempt to frustrate our check-in policy by checking into sessions that you did not attend.
