Make your Weaknesses Your Strengths

  • Not a good runner? Neither was I, but I started a trail running class anyway.
  • Have the flexibility of a tin man? So did I, but I started practicing yoga so I would improve.
  • Unhappy with the way you look? So was I, but I committed to the Weight Loss Challenge.
  • Suck at muscle-ups, double unders, etc.? Signup for the Iron Star Games, and we will work on them together.

Scared to try CrossFit? Ten years ago, so was I.

CrossFit is a lifestyle characterized by safe, effective exercise and sound nutrition. CrossFit can be used to accomplish any goal, from improved health to weight loss to better performance. The program works for everyone — people who are just starting out and people who have trained for years.
WHY DOES CROSSFIT WORK?

Scaling is the system we use for adjusting the workout difficulty to your level.  All classes feature warmups, instruction, customization and scaling for Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced Athletes (Rx).
DO I NEED TO BE IN SHAPE TO START CROSSFIT?
No. CrossFit is the program that will get you in shape. No matter what your current fitness level is, you can start CrossFit. As you become fitter, workouts will become more challenging. Every workout is designed to help you succeed, improve your fitness, and move you toward your goals.
WHY IS THE COMMUNITY SO IMPORTANT?

Weight Loss Journeys

Congratulations to all of member success stories in our 2022 Weight Loss Challenge. I hope to see Janel, Anthony, Elga, Katie, Laura, and Sean back for our 2023 competition.

If I can do it, you can too. – Coach Paul

Janel D.

Introducing your 2022 Weight Loss Champion Janel. Watch as she discusses some of the real life challenges associated with her weight loss journey (16 pounds in 77 days.) She shares her lessons learned from the process, and gives tips to future competitors.

Plus we catch up with Laura, our second place finisher, who finally reveals the secret sauce behind her stunning 21 pound weight loss.

Elga O.

My Weight Loss Journey: I hit my minimum goal of reaching 160 lbs on day 48. But I almost immediately bounced back up to the low-mid 160s and stayed there for a few weeks. I suspect my scale may have been malfunctioning on that dip. But if you take a look at my graph, you can see that, despite severe ups-and-downs along the way, I’m continuing on a pretty consistent downward trajectory. This week I’ve consistently dipped back into the 150’s, with top weights in the very low 160’s. I am confident that, by the end of the 90 days, I will be squarely and entirely in the 150’s (note that my 90 days ends on December 3rd, and the official finale is on my Day 77).

Katie M.

My Results: I lost 17 Inches, and I did it despite numerous setbacks. You can too!

My Weight Loss Journey: My journey has challenges and that’s OK.  Life has challenges. In the past 77 days I dealt with: 5 days of planned vacation, 7 days on the couch injured, 7 days on crutches, a big Italian wedding, a cortisone shot, 1 Midwestern funeral with lots of casseroles (main ingredient: Campbell’s cream soup).

My Advice: Life happens, shit happens, people get married, and people get buried. Classes get canceled, classes continue and things seldom go according to plan. This is life and you need adaptable to everything life throws at you. There is no perfect time to lose weight … the time is now.

At Sand & Steel: I have tried new things, learned new things, and relearned old things. I have eaten spinach salads and wedding cakes, grilled chicken and vegetables and funeral casseroles. I am exploring the boundaries of a realistic and sustainable healthy lifestyle. I’m learning what works for me, where I fit in, what I can do, and what else I can do to stay young and move young.

It’s amazing, scary, and humbling. I’m not trying to do anything perfectly; I’m looking for a way to live a healthier life so I can continue to play.

Crossfit and nutrition are vehicles in this curious adventure. The nutrition challenge is all of that and a part of that. It is not the end, just as it was not the beginning.

-Katie

Laura I.

I started my weight loss journey on August 6 of this year, and since I started not only have, I felt better about my performance and CrossFit and running have improved so much. I am running faster (8:30 per mile while running on pavement) and I am that much closer to completing my first pull-up! By the first day of the weight loss challenge at Sand and Steel I already lost 10 pounds. I overcame my challenges with eating in moderation, especially sweets. If I have a stressful day at work how do I keep myself from binge eating ice cream? Well, some days I would replace it with plain yogurt (topped with a teaspoon of honey), or I would eat a cookie but only one! Once I figured this out my weight loss plan started to work and I am feeling the best ever!

-Laura

Anthony M.

My Weight Loss Journey I came into the challenge with some strongly held preconceptions about weight loss and nutrition. But with the help of the Nutrition Lab and Coach Paul’s guidance, I came to understand where I was wrong or skewed in my thinking. More importantly, I realized that no matter how educated you are on nutrition and fitness, without a disciplined regiment and structured plan (and maybe some competitive motivation), bad habits and social/environmental temptations quickly derail your progress and make you think you “hit a wall.”

Strictly discussing weight loss, I started at 175.8lbs on 1 September (photo 1) and was able to drop 10lbs to 165.8 by 21 October (7 weeks) (photo 2). After that, I was derailed by some planned and unplanned factors, namely an injury and a 2-week visit by family from abroad that included trips to NYC, Philly and Miami, and some indulging in things like alcohol, extra calories, carbs, refined sugars, and processed foods & very little sleep. Despite all those NO-NOs, the foundational knowledge and discipline the WLC had instilled in me kept from going too far off the rails (gained 3-4lbs) and getting right back into the groove when I got back home and my injury healed up. I have 2 weeks left to hit my 90 days, and even with the above set backs, I believe I can still hit my goal weight of 160lbs by the end!

-Anthony

Sean D.

My Weight Loss Journey: I started my weight loss journey in early September, learning and relearning many of the lessons I have learned from Sand and Steel’s nutrition program. My goal was to march towards 15 % body fat, while growing muscle mass. I am down a net total of 16 pounds while gaining over a pound in muscle. Sand and Steel gave me the tools needed to enjoy 2 small family vacations to their fullest and bounce right back, all without getting discouraged. I am no stranger to working on weight loss, but through solid education and a great community, finally I feel I am able to accomplish this while feeling confident in the results and making food that tastes great!

    Classes are well tailored to all whether you are starting out or have been going to a gym for quite some time. Will definitely be coming back to take some of the CoreFit classes.

    Classes are really excellent for beginners. I am brand new to CrossFit but Jose and Dawn have done a great job with helping learn deadlifts and cleans. Highly recommended.

    Cindy

    I came to Sand and Steel CrossFit because I wanted to learn how to do some of the advanced gymnastics exercises like handstand walks and muscle-ups. Paul gave me really amazing progressions and I can even do jumping muscle-ups now. This is an excellent CrossFit gym if you want to get better at CrossFit gymnastics exercises.
