Paul Roberts is the head coach of for our Fitness Classes. In a recent interview, Paul provided the following comments about Sand and Steel’s Upcoming Fitness classes which have been closed during the COVID-19 VA lockdown.

WP: Since classes have been closed due to the COVID-19 Lockdown… how have you been spending your time?

Paul: I have been “obsessed” with building SSF a better personal training and fitness classes from day 1, and that has not changed. We all know the economy will struggle from so many businesses being closed. SSF made the hard decision to reduce client prices on group classes by 50%. That’s a massive price cut, and to make it happen we had to improve existing processes, reduce unnecessary luxuries, and really focus our efforts on what is important to our members:

  1. Quality of programming,
  2. Quality of coaching,
  3. Quality of equipment, and a
  4. Safe, judgment-free environment.

WP: How do you plan to implement those goals?

Paul: When classes we reopen, Sand & Steel’s classes will focus on three classes:

  1. Strong: a Strength Training class utilizing powerlifting and Olympic lifting,
  2. Fit: a Conditioning class utilizing CrossFit & TRX, and
  3. Stretch: a Mobility class utilizing Beyond Stretch and Yoga.

With just 3 classes, we will be able to reduce our prices by 50%, offer more class times, and lock-in our programming focus on three things we do best: Strength Training, Conditioning, and Mobility.

WP: Which Class are You Most Looking Forward to Coaching?

Paul: Which class is my favorite?  To me, conditioning is a necessary evil. If you want to look good, conditioning is a must. So I put extra programming attention to making conditioning fun. Mobility, that’s the glue that keeps us safe from injury. It’s the most challenging to coach, but reaps some of the best rewards. But when I think of going to the gym, my mind goes directly to the barbell. At the end of the day, I want to be strong. I want to coach people that want to be strong.  So it’s has to be Strong.

WP: We heard you turned 40 this year?  Any personal goals you have for your own fitness?

Paul: This year, my 40th year, I am working on two things: I want my six-pack back and to hit the 1000 club (combined one rep max of bench, squat and deadlift.)  So that’s who I am programming for — people that want to be strong and look sexy – simple as that. If you are willing to put in the work to be strong and look sexy as hell, then I look forward to seeing you in my next class. While our competitors can offer disco lights and eucalyptus towels, we focus our attention on improving coaching quality, buying the best equipment we can, and building the best strength training programming available.

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.

Booking Policy

We have one Booking Policy. It applies to all sessions including: Personal Training, Classes, and Open Gym.

  • Sessions may be booked 6 hours to 2 weeks in advance.  You can call the gym if you need to book within 6 hours.

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.

You must cancel your sessions as soon as you think you might be getting sick. Cancellations for sickness must be sent [email protected] . Phone calls, texts, emails to other addresses, won’t be accepted. If you do get sick, please cancel all your booked sessions for the week. Please don’t hold your session times and wait to the last minute to cancel your sessions.

Cancellation Example. You have a morning session scheduled, and you wake up sick. You email us at 5:30AM telling us you are sick. Will you lose the session? Yes. We have already spent the time preparing for your session. If you think you might be getting sick (we all know that feeling… minor sore throat, energy level dipping down, mild headache, etc.), cancel by 9pm the night before. You won’t lose the session. If the next morning you suddenly feel better, email us and we’ll rebook your session.

Coaches are paid only for sessions that are attended or late canceled. When you cancel early, you give another client a chance to book, and the coaches will not lose paid hours. Please don’t worry about not being able to to find session later in the week – Dawn or Paul will be happy to find additional times to help you get booked.

Wipe Down all Surfaces that you touch. Barbells, plates, dumbbells, benches, etc. We have plenty of gym wipes. Wipe Down Exercise Mats. Do not step on exercise mats with shoes or sneakers on.

    If you like working in groups, working with a team that knows what there doing, working with other members to help you with encouragement as you work together through the work outs this is the pack for you. My first experience was awesome when I finally started with the starter group class pack but now I can’t stop buying more group class packs. It’s like having a workout family to help push me, make sure I’m safe but help me achieve the goals I have set for myself for the betterment of my life. I look forward to continuing with these classes.
