Jacob has truly found his calling with sports massage. He loves working on athletes and comes from a background focused on endurance athletes, including several professional triathletes. He has knowledge that extends well beyond just massage as he truly tries to get to the root of the problem with Integrated Positional Therapy (similar to some of the things that Stacey Thomas works on).
He is originally from the east coast and is an avid runner, backpacker and yogi…and is excited to add CrossFitter to that list. Beyond Deep Tissue/Trigger Point therapies and other common massage modalities, Jacob is also trained in Thai Massage and Reflexology. He also has a strong background in physiology and kinesiology.
Some of the coaches and staff have had work done from Jacob and can’t stop raving about the progress they’ve made after just one session.
Jacob is available:
- Sundays from 8am – 12pm
- Mondays from 8am – 2pm
- Wednesdays from 10am – 2pm
- Thursdays from 8am – 2pm

Here is a great conversation between Chris Kresser and Neely Quinn specifically for women about what causes excess weight gain, and how you can drop the pounds you don’t need — in a healthy way. Over the last year, Chris Kresser and Neely Quinn have both made it to CrossFit Sanitas to educate our members and community on nutrition and what it takes to solve our diet dilemmas.

Topics covered include:
- The biggest struggles with weight loss seen among Kresser’s female patients.
- The most common weight loss challenges heard from Kresser’s female readers.
- The smartest, healthiest ways to overcome those struggles and challenges.
- The reason why personalizing your diet, finding your own ‘Paleo code’ is especially important for women.
- How pregnancy and breastfeeding affect weight gain, blood sugar, and insulin levels.
- Guidelines for how much extra food a woman needs to be eating during pregnancy.
- How much weight a woman “should” gain during pregnancy and how long it “should” take to lose it again.
- What foods to eat and avoid during breastfeeding to help with getting back to optimal body composition.
Coaches Beau and Michael made an appearance at WODtoberfest, a CrossFit competition held at CrossFit Salvo, over the weekend. They put a combined total of 600 pounds over head in a 1rm shoulder to overhead, came in 1st place in 3 out of 4 events, and by the end of the day, that’s all they need to give them a 1st place finish overall amongst over 20 teams!
Great work, coaches! Practice what you preach!
