Membership Overview

For Most CrossFit gyms, open gym is an afterthought.  Something they hope to be able to provide, but aren’t really equipped to do so.  Sand and Steel at Eisenhower is the third gym that Dawn and Paul opened.  We know our Open Gym members — they are powerlifters and CrossFitters.  Many are Military officers, and many have owned or managed a CrossFit box.  We built our gym to provide you with the equipment you want, at the times that are convenient for your schedule.  We have unlimited open gym in the mornings with group classes in the evening.  We have air conditioning, showers, convenient parking, and a keyless entry system.

And as important as all of that is, where Sand and Steel really shines is in safety and cleanliness.  We take the COVID-19 threat seriously and have designed our open gym service to keep you as safe as possible.  To learn more about how Sand and Steel is keep you safe, check out our latest articles on COVID-19.
