To welcome Lindsay, CrossFit Sanitas is offering introductory, 90-minute acupuncture sessions that includes a full assessment, photographic Posture Screen analysis and rock taping for $75 (regularly $105). The posture screen will tell you things like if your head is leaning two inches forward, it now weighs 45lbs instead of 12lbs and now the muscles in your neck have to work “xx”% harder to maintain balance.

“It was merely two sessions, and there was never any return of the shoulder burn and constant ache. To think I had been so very much delayed in addressing it.” — Jason

“I feel like I have new knees again! I will never go back to feeling the way I used to!” — Jude

“I went to see Lindsay once and then signed up for 10 sessions. It is amazing what acupuncture can do.” — Korrine

“After several years of jaw pain I experienced complete relief in my jaw with Lindsay.  I’ve also found great relief in other areas I didn’t even know acupuncture would help…lifelong allergy/asthma problems, emotional roller coaster issues, sleep, and anxiety.  At first I was a bit anxious about acupuncture and the needles, but felt I was out of options in the medical world…and how much could it hurt, really?!?! Now, I absolutely LOVE going to acupuncture. Lindsay is a great listener, very skilled at what she does and a great partner in fine-tuning my health.”

Sanitas Iron Man

Cheer on Boulder’s CrossFit Sanitas Iron Men!


That’s right. They’re not too bulky to race! Jay Kalinski and James Powlan will be tackling the full-length Boulder IronMan on August 3rd. They’ve been catering their CrossFit training to enable their bodies to not just endure, but to stay strong and efficient throughout the events. They don’t just have a great engine, they have a solid chasis built to support it. And they aren’t the first Sanitas athlete to take on the IronMan; Caitlin Carrigain finished her first-ever triathlon, a full-length IronMan, in Austin Texas back in May. What does a full-length IronMan consist of?

  • 2.4 mile swim
  • 112 bike ride
  • 26.2 mile run (yes, that is a Marathon)

Come out and support these badasses! Meet up with other Sanitas athletes at Mile-10 of the run, right by the starting line near Arapahoe and 13th. Lululemon will also be there and they’ll have a cheer booth set up so let’s get out there! And be sure to look out for your fellow member, Craig Heisner at the Newton Running Company near the finish line; maybe you’ll score some free stuff!

Here’s some info from IronMan on the best spectating spots:

Swim Start Viewing – All spectators will be required to ride the shuttles with the athletes from Boulder High School. This will be free for everyone and will begin running at 4:00 AM from the Boulder High School to the Boulder Reservoir and back until 10:00 AM.

Bike Course Viewing – with this course being a single loop course it will be a large area for the athletes to cover. Consider going to see your athlete as they pass under I-25 the second time southeast of Erie. This would be at the intersection of Co Rd 6 and Co rd 7. You can easily access this point by traveling up Arapahoe from the Boulder High School and will provide you with a straight forward return. If not this option use the High School as your viewing area for the day.

Boulder Iron Man Run courseRun Course Viewing – The course is on the Boulder Creek Trail and will have many runners on it at any given time. We ask that you do not attempt to ride your bike along the trail to see your athlete. Use surface streets to view our athlete. This will help the racers have as much space as possible and not have to worry about bikes weaving in and out.

Finish Line Viewing – The finish line is just off of the Pearl Street Mall and will be ideal for waiting out your athlete to finish. Enjoy the street entertainers as well as all the great food along the Pearl Street Mall. Come back for the last hour and bring in the final finisher with us. Its going to be a big party!

CrossFit Sanitas Ranked Top 5 CrossFit Gyms by SHAPE

Boulder’s CrossFit Sanitas Named #4 CrossFit in the Country by Shape Magazine


Screen Shot 2014-07-28 at 10.34.14 AMThat’s right! About a month ago, SHAPE magazine called out to its readers to tell them about the best CrossFit gym — recognizing CrossFit locations around the country with stellar coaching, excellent facilities, an emphasis on safety, and, of course, an incredibly fit clientele (that’s YOU!)

How did they find the top CrossFit gyms? Athletes would cast their vote while answering questions about all things inside the gym including coach qualifications, women’s initiatives, new member training and safety guidelines, success stories, and of course, about the community. Special thanks to Emily Lanigan for posting the original article from SHAPE requesting votes!

Thanks to the coaches and members for making this happen! In the end, YOU are what makes this box the best CrossFit gym in the country.

And don’t forget, we’ll be having Sanitas Field Day at North Boulder Park September 6th so bring your families and let’s grill, eat watermelon, play some games and celebrate this community together!

From the article:

“When I told my friends that I had started CrossFit, I realized that CrossFit had a reputation that was intimidating,” says owner Melissa Roza. “I wanted a place where women and men of all ages, shapes, and experience levels would feel welcome.” CrossFit Sanitas is located in 10,000 square feet of Boulder’s busiest retail center. There’s on-site childcare seven days a week, locker rooms with showers, and multiple specialty classes including Olympic lifting, teen, mobility, strength, and endurance. But what really makes this facility different is that it has a cold plunge pool and massage therapists on staff.
