I highly recommend CrossFit Sanitas! The coaches make the experience a positive one for everybody.
"I thought I knew my way around a weight room, but this is a whole new experience. I love the fact that everybody knows who I am and they want me to keep moving forward with my fitness. Three months into CrossFit and I haven’t had a single injury, and I attribute that to the fact that not a single coach has ever told me that the amount of weight I’m lifting is too light or the speed at which I am doing things is too slow. They have allowed me to increase my fitness level with constant coaching and enthusiasm. 90 days and I still haven’t done the same workout twice. I highly recommend CrossFit Sanitas! The coaches make the experience a positive one for everybody."
I feel stronger, my clothes fit better and I remain excited every day!
"I find CrossFit to be a perfect fit for someone like myself who may be described as ‘motivationally challenged’. All one has to do is walk through the front door and the enthusiasm of the group and the trainers sweeps you along. The staff at CFS has been great as well – extremely supportive, helpful and enthusiastic. Everyone makes a point of getting to know you, your skills and capabilities and takes time to ensure that you are doing the exercises correctly and getting the most out of your workouts. I feel stronger, my clothes fit better and I remain excited every day!" -Townsend Devereaux
Working out with a dedicated group makes working out fun.
"I’ve been a member of other gyms in Boulder and I have competed in full contact sports at a high level for many years. I have also participated in many forms of yoga…so I am probably a typical Boulderite. I enjoy CrossFit Sanitas because you feel you belong no matter what size, fitness shape or skill level. I love the diversity of the class…in the 5:30a, we are professionlas, mothers, students…and we’re all participating for different reasons. I also love the sense of team. Working out with a dedicated group makes working out fun. I am an extremely disciplined person, but having teammates is so valuable in staying with the program."
I’m getting better, stronger and sexier, and at my age, that’s an amazing feeling.
"After a huge emotional trauma, I gained nearly 50lbs. I started going to 24 Hour Fitness and yoga 5x/week. I was working hard, but I wasn’t really seeing results and I was starting to get discouraged. I always thought CrossFit was too expensive, but I wanted to give it a try. My body responded faster than I could have possibly expected and I immediately saw the value. During the Clean Eating Challenge in April, I lost 4% body fat in one month. I’m getting better, stronger and sexier, and at my age, that’s an amazing feeling." -Eric Crowley, Solar
My running has also improved with CrossFit – I ran my last 10k in 40:35…6 minutes better than my previous personal best!
"Before CrossFit, I worked out at the gym, ran, and did yoga. I was pretty fit, but I couldn’t seem to lose weight. I was also pretty bored with my workout routines. After my first CrossFit session, I knew I had found it! CrossFit has not only changed the way I look, but it’s changed the way I look at my body. The CrossFit culture celebrates strength and health, which is so different. I’m 35, the fittest I’ve ever been and constantly getting stronger, faster and better. My running has also improved with CrossFit – I ran my last 10k in 40:35…6 minutes better than my previous personal best!! My favorite thing about CrossFit Sanitas is the community. Everyone is friendly, there are a lot of social activities, fun challenges and camaraderie. If you’re looking for a place to push yourself and change your body…CrossFit Sanitas is the place!" -Jaime Almond, Marketing
CrossFit is the fountain of youth! I finally feel that after all these years!
"I thought I would just do the introductory month to satisfy my New Year’s resolution; after all, I was happy with my local health club, right? After 28 years of trying many types of exercise classes, I thought I was in decent shape. CrossFit has dispelled those thoughts and taken me to a whole new level of fitness which I didn’t think was possible at my age. I have seen significant improvements in my strength, endurance, mobility, cardiovascular fitness and even gymnastics skills, both inside and outside of the gym. By coming 3x/week and incorporating some of the nutritional information I have learned at CFS, I have lost a significant amount of body fat and gained muscle all over. I was not expecting these dramatic results at age 46, but it was possible with CrossFit. CrossFit is the fountain of youth! I finally feel that after all these years!"
I’m stronger than I’ve ever been, and I believe in my ability to do things I never thought I could do before.
"My son had turned one and I was ready to lose that last 15lbs. and get back into shape. CrossFit was the perfect place to make that happen. I know I’m going to get a workout that will kick my butt in one hour or less, so I can fit it into my busy working mom schedule. I lost the 15lbs in the first 3 months and then some! I’m actually below my pre-prego weight. Best of all, I’m stronger than I’ve ever been, and I believe in my ability to do things I never thought I could do before. When I joined I was afraid to jump on a 6″ box and the idea of a handstand push-up made me burst out laughing. Six months later, I can do 30″ box jumps and 5 handstand push-ups in a row. I even got my 71 year old father to do BaseCamp with me which led to better mobility, core strength and coordination." -Leslie Goldman
In just 2 1/2 months I’ve made tremendous gains.
"I got motivated to try CrossFit after seeing the amazing transformation that my sister and brother in-law experienced from doing CrossFit in Cincinnati. I started BaseCamp at CrossFit Sanitas as soon as I got back. From the start, CFS was a great experience. I started seeing results immediately and the instructors were quick to identify issues I had and provide techniques to start improving. I’m a pretty big guy with significant mobility issues; and in just 2 1/2 months I’ve made tremendous gains. I’ve always struggled with the monotony of regular workouts; and that’s one of the greatest aspects of CrossFit…the workouts are always different. So it truly never gets boring."
The staff at CrossFit Sanitas was friendly without putting any pressure on me.
"Since turning 30, I had been trying all kinds of different exercise and sports to find ‘my thing’, but nothing ever stuck. This year I wanted to try something to push myself without getting bored. Right away, the staff at CrossFit Sanitas was friendly without putting any pressure on me. Workouts were varied enough to keep me challenged and could be modified, so I never felt left behind or ashamed. As a single working parent, it’s not always easy or convenient to exercise, but it’s important to show my 10-year old daughter what it means to be active and healthy. And I’m having fun too. Through events, the blog and their coaching, I’m becoming stronger physically, tougher mentally, and a little bit wiser about what true fitness means." -Melanie Sidwell, CU Adminstration
I could barely do a pull up when I started, now I do 30 with ease as a warm up.
"I absolutely love so many things about CrossFit: all I have to do is show up (someone else has thought about what I will be doing), the workouts are highly demanding but can be scaled for anyone at any skill level, and the workouts are always different, so you’re never bored. I always feels different vs. “dumbbell curl Mondays”. CrossFit Sanitas in particular has amazing coaches and staff with friendly yet motivating attitudes, as well as an amazing amount of knowledge and experience. In the last 7-8 months I’ve made huge gains in strength, as well as endurance. I could barely do a pull up when I started, now I do 30 with ease as a warm up. I’ve also seen a huge change in my physical appearance, not to mention the level of confidence I carry day in-day out. I don’t envision any scenario in which I would go back to a regular gym and I came to that conclusion after only a week at CrossFit Sanitas. I knew it was for me." -Kevin Rasor, Biochemist
