CrossFit classes are fun, effective, and very much about building a positive network of friends that will motivate you to improve your overall health and fitness. CrossFit Gyms (in Alexandria Virginia, Arlington VA, Fairfax VA, Washington DC, etc.) are known for their amazing community. But what does community mean? Your community is your friendships with other members and your relationship with your coaches. Unlike big box gyms, your membership is important to the functioning of the gym as a whole. If you miss a workout, your friends will ask you where you are. If you miss a week of training, don’t surprised if a coach calls you. As a CrossFit member, you are part of a community trying to better themselves. Workout of the Day The workout of the day is continuously published. View our WOD page to see tomorrow’s workout.

Pricing Thoughts on CrossFit Costs CrossFit is more expensive than gyms like Gold’s gym or Planet Fitness, because you have more space as a member (barbells take up more space per person than treadmills). CrossFit gyms also have train and pay their instructors. CrossFit gyms have to pay rents that costs $5,000-$15,000 per month. Buildout costs are generally $100,000-$200,000, which are generally financed. Long story short, CrossFit gyms charge more, because they cost more to operate. And while you might think that $200/month is a lot for a gym, most group fitness classes (like Orange Theory, F45, CorePower Yoga) charge similar prices. With CrossFit, you are getting a time-proven system followed by more than 16,000 gyms. CrossFit is a proven system and its only getting better What is CrossFit? CrossFit is a culture of teamwork and community. CrossFit provides the standard of safe and effective movement. CrossFit’s specialty courses and certifications provide the Gold Standard for certifications in the fitness industry. “CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide. CrossFit is a program that delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing.” 1 “The needs of our Olympic athletes and grandparents differ by degree, not kind.” That is to say, everyone needs to perform an intelligently selected variety of functional movements at a level of intensity appropriate for that individual. Everyone needs to eat food that sustains, rather than harms, the body. This is the pursuit of fitness, and the ability to maintain that fitness throughout your life is a defining measure of health.” 2 Why Join our CrossFit Classes in Alexandria VA? We believe in following CrossFit’s powerful “main site” programming because it works. With CrossFit’s constantly varied, high-intensity functional movements, CrossFit’s method of training provides a unique opportunity to truly improve fitness. With our extensive knowledge and experience in personal training, mobility, and fitness classes, we are able to provide a safe and consistent CrossFit class experience. The Sand & Steel CrossFit Gym in Alexandria VA Sand and Steel CrossFit in Alexandria VA has everything from barbells, TRX Suspension Trainers, Powerlifting cages, Olympic lifting platforms, and rowing machines. Sand & Steel Fitness’s gym provides Personal Training customized to the individual member, open gym for its members, CrossFit classes, TRX classes, Yoga, Powerlifting Classes, Olympic Lifting Classes, and Mobility Classes. Will I Get in Better Shape Doing CrossFit? Yes. Whereas other forms of fitness are designed for a specific purpose (run further, improve boxing ability, dance better, etc.) the purpose of doing CrossFit is to get in better shape. CrossFit in Alexandria VA, Washington DC, etc is about improving your fitness. Indeed CrossFit calls itself the sport of fitness. So yes, if you want to improve your fitness across multiple domains, CrossFit should be your first choice. Will I Look Better from Doing CrossFit in Alexandria VA? CrossFit builds great bodies. You just need to take a look at a regionals competition or a CrossFit games competition to see that. CrossFitters aren’t overly muscular bodybuilders — they have more of the lean, muscular look. The kind of body you are proud to show in a bikini. If want to look toned, shredded, or cut, CrossFit is great for that. Will I lose Weight Doing CrossFit? Yes … but CrossFit’s main purpose isn’t weight loss. You will lose weight naturally through building a community of people that eat better and workout harder. Will you become more active in general, because you will make friends that are more active? Yes. Will you burn a ton of calories in each workout (WOD)? Yes. So yeah, you’ll lose weight doing CrossFit, but CrossFit is about improving overall fitness. Decreasing bodyfat is a byproduct of that process. Can Beginners do CrossFit? Yes. Different CrossFit Boxes (in Alexandria VA and other towns in Northern Virginia), use different methods for teaching new students. At Sand & Steel CrossFit, we have two paths to help you progress from a beginner CrossFitter to an intermediate CrossFitter. CrossFit Beginner’s Class: in our beginner’s class where we focus on teaching the 9 Fundamental Movements of CrossFit. Your workouts will include more than these 9 movements, but we limit the technical movements to these nine movements when you are first starting. Mastering these movements takes practice. You’ll become proficient in these movements quickly. These fundamental movements are super important exercises that build strength and reinforce good body positioning. Personal Training: if you prefer to train in private sessions with a coach, we also offer personal training. Clients that have attended at least 32 sessions are automatically qualified to join our intermediate CrossFit classes. Truth be told, intermediate level CrossFit classes aren’t better than beginner classes. They just involve more complex skills. What is a CrossFit class like?

Cancellation requests received after 8PM EST will be processed the next business day. Timing Your Cancellation Properly. If you are on a membership with a limited number of sessions (e.g. Personal Training 4 or Combo 8), you will want to wait until you attend your last session and then submit this form once you attend the class. Your membership will automatically renew at 10PM if you do not cancel it beforehand. Early Membership Renewal. Our booking software is configured such that your membership will automatically renew at the earlier of: at 10PM on the day you use your last session or at the scheduled time period (e.g. one week, four weeks, or one month, etc. as the case may be) So if you use your combo 8 membership in only 20 days, your membership will renew on day 21. If you only use 7 of your 8 “combo 8” sessions, your membership will renew in one month. Keep in mind that unused sessions do not rollover. You can cancel a membership at any time and for any reason. Cancellations are immediate. You cannot cancel a membership for a future date or after a certain number of sessions are used. If you have any unused sessions, you will lose them.

Cancellation requests received after 8PM EST will be processed the next business day. 8) Accidental Renewal / Refunds Although we have explained how our autorenewal process works, on occasion, some members forget the above information and request a refund after their membership has renewed. If you request a refund after your renewal has been processed, you’ll be presented with an option to apply 100% of the renewal amount as a store credit (which doesn’t expire and can be used to purchase a future membership) or receive a refund minus a 20 % administration fee to cover the accounting, administrative, and credit card transaction fees involved with your return. Processing membership returns is very time consuming and expensive, which is why most gyms don’t offer refunds for any reason whatsoever. 9) Late Cancellation Form & Policy If you would need to cancel your reservation within the time window, please review our Late Cancellation Policy and fill out the requisite late cancellation form. 10) Late Reservation Form & Policy If you would like to reserve within the time window, please review our Late Reservation Policy and fill out the requisite late cancellation form. 11) SSF Standard Sick Policy 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. 12) Time Extensions We allow members to request an extension of time on Personal Training 5 Pack and Personal Training Pack 10 only. Requests for extension of time for other membership types will not be honored.
