Personal Stories from Boulder’s CrossFit Sanitas Members

sam reid crossfit sanitasThis gym and community have been the absolute highlight of our time in Colorado so far. We travel for work so we’ve been to multiple Crossfit boxes across the US. Of the 12 gyms we’ve tried, nothing comes close to Sanitas. EVERY ONE of the coaches is top notch – they take their role seriously, they demo every move, they explain the goal of each exercise, they provide tons of personalized guidance, they focus of great form and safety first, they know everyone’s names, and they always find ways to make the workouts fun. They have one or more daycare options every day and our two girls (4 and 2 years old) now look forward to Crossfit almost as much as going to the park or pool.

barb keller crossfit sanitasJust wanted to let you know that it’s working! Last weekend while skiing Mary Jane’s mogul runs all day, I was able to double the distance I could go before stopping to huff-puff-rest-rest. To be able to do Needle’s Eye with only one rest is a great thing at age 57!

amanda paulson crossfit sanitasI’ve been going to Sanitas for almost three years now, and can’t say enough good things about it. The coaches are top-notch, stay focused on form and doing movements correctly, and encourage members to push themselves past limits in a safe and supportive environment. And to top it off, the gym itself is beautiful, and the amenities like childcare, locker rooms, and the plunge pool are great perks. Going to this gym regularly has helped me get in the best shape I’ve been in in years, and made me better able to enjoy all the hiking/skiing/biking and other outdoor activities that are why most of us love Colorado.

I’ve been to other CrossFit gyms in the past and Sanitas has offered a more supportive community with attentive, informative coaches. Never have I felt I couldn’t do a workout – options for scaling are always available. I’ve been at Sanitas about 6 months now and it’s brought my training to the next level… I mean, I’m doing the CF Open this Year! Sanitas has opened many doors and I’d recommend it to anyone interested.

michelle crystal crossfit sanitasThe fact that I had never done crossfit and was grossly out of shape simply didn’t matter to the team of expert coaches. They treat everyone as an individual, they listen, advise, follow up and encourage you every step of the way.

In 8 months I have lost 40lbs, gone down at least 2 sizes (maybe 3 due to previous size denial) lost body fat and participated 100% in a 30 day Clean Eating competition. I have never done nor wanted to do a “diet” and now I can’t wait until the next one in January.

Boulder CrossFit Sanitas reviews billSanitas is unique. Instructors are knowable. Members are consistent with very low attrition. The owners understand the importance of the customer, and by the enthusiastic atmosphere and approach to classes the employees are treated right. Sanitas is a fun place to workout and hangout.

crossfit sanitas testimonial boulderCrossfit Sanitas is the best workout EVER! I have been religiously WODing for 2 years with the Sanitas crew – the coaches are focused, creative and patient. The workouts are varied and the community is amazingly supportive. People of all ages (I’m 50) and sizes work out together and cheer each other on…always striving for their PRs.

— Kara M. CrossFit Sanitas Member since Jan. 2013


liati huff crossfit sanitasPhenomenal coaches, supportive community and lots of specialty classes in addition to the main WODs. The programming is challenging yet accessible, so any athlete at any level can reach their goals. I’ve been going a little more than a year, and I can honestly say that it’s one of the best parts of my day!!

— Liati H. CrossFit Sanitas Member since Nov. 2014


melody markel crossfit sanitasThose at Crossfit Sanitas have been awesome at cheering me on and having me feel welcome, even though I haven’t been able to participate in the WODs (Workout Of the Day) due to an injury. I used to not push myself very hard when going to the gym. That shifted when I came to Sanitas. It became both fun and encouraging to go my hardest while working out. A huge THANK YOU to CrossFit Sanitas for supporting me through this. I’m loving being a part of this community!

crossfit sanitas adam rothbergI travel frequently for work and have visited at least 10-15 different CrossFit facilities across the country, even a few internationally. I can say, hands down, that CrossFit Sanitas ranks at the top of my list. The facility itself is clean, spacious, and up-to-date. The community is warm, welcoming, and serious about getting fit. What makes Sanitas superior to the majority of other boxes, however, are the programming and the staff. WODs are always varied and comprehensive. Every coach at Sanitas is extremely well trained; each is tuned in and very attentive to the individual needs of every athlete. Five stars for CrossFit Sanitas!

noah sussman crossfit sanitasI walked in an out of shape but determined athlete and the coaching staff has helped me improve my skill level and fitness level to levels beyond my wildest dreams. I have been to a half dozen other gyms in Colorado and elsewhere, and without even factoring in the facility itself the coaching at Sanitas is second to none. They assure safety with every workout. Classes have a good coach to athlete ratio and feedback is plentiful. The daily WODS are always unique and build on each other. The strength, olympic lifting, and mobility classes all provide additional avenues to get more out of your gym membership.

By far the best part of CrossFit Sanitas is the coaching staff. The staff are enthusiastic about sharing CrossFit with athletes and are very approachable outside of class.

Boulder CrossFit Sanitas reviewsThe first day of BaseCamp was so hard. It was the worst day of my life and the best day of my life. I remember crying after my first class in the parking lot. No more excuses, I was going to start taking care of myself.

Since I started at CrossFit Sanitas, I’ve lost 40 lbs. I can run, the chronic pain in my knees is gone and my cough is gone. Now I know what it feels like to be healthy and it feels really good…I don’t want to lose that feeling.

Boulder CrossFit Sanitas reviews jayAfter 6 months of a primarily Crossfit-centric workout regimen, I was able to reduce my 56 mile bike split by over 20 minutes.  But that pales in comparison to the results I’ve seen in overall health, strength and fitness since starting Crossfit, thanks in large part to the heavy focus on healthy eating in Crossfit in general and at Crossfit Sanitas specifically.  None of that would be possible, though, without the amazingly supportive and close-knit community that has evolved at Crossfit Sanitas and keeps people coming back.

Boulder CrossFit Sanitas reviews suziNo other gym has what Sanitas offers. This is a true community. You are greeted at the door every time you walk in and you feel like you’re part of something. We all encourage each other to be better. There’s no other place like CrossFit Sanitas. I am celebrating my one-year anniversary at CrossFit Sanitas this month. Joining Sanitas has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. It’s life changing. This place is special.

Boulder CrossFit Sanitas reviews kristinCrossFit is the fountain of youth! I was concerned about losing strength and fitness as I aged; however, I am stronger than ever and my overall fitness level at age 46 continues to improve thanks to Sanitas. I can’t remember ever having so much fun in the gym!

— Kristin B., CrossFit Sanitas Member since Jan. 2013


Crossfit Sanitas is a phenomenal place. The coaches are fantastic, the atmosphere is welcoming and supportive to all fitness levels, and the community is strong. Crossfit Sanitas offers a holistic approach to fitness and longevity, which means a lot to me. I love continuous improvement and accomplishing PRs, while also building my health and fitness for the long term. Workouts are always a highlight of my day – everything in my life is better with Crossfit Sanitas!

— Anne K., CrossFit Sanitas Member since July 2015


I love working out here. The coaching is superb: I always feel challenged and supported at the same time, and safety is their first priority. The community is so fun and supportive: I always feel encouraged to be the best version of myself and have fun doing so! I never considered myself an athlete before coming in here, and now it’s an important part of my life. I’d encourage anyone considering CrossFit to get in to Sanitas ASAP.

— Susan T., CrossFit Sanitas Member since April 2013


A Crossfit box is only as good as its coaches, and Crossfit Sanitas has the best in the business. Focused, friendly, supportive, and deeply knowledgable. And the whole vibe of the place, the community of members and the staff, is super-friendly. Not intimidating. We work hard and push ourselves and each other, but we have a good time doing it. As happy to see the success of the other people in our class as we are seeing our own. It’s that kind of culture.

— Chad W., CrossFit Sanitas Member since July 2015


Great crossfit gym and community. The coaches put safety first and make sure your form is right to prevent injury, which is not the reputation crossfit gets sometimes. The facility is the best I’ve ever been to, and like many other reviewers, I travel a lot and drop in at other locations while on the road and was a member at another crossfit in Mississippi prior to moving here. Classes can be big compared to other experiences I’ve had but there’s plenty of space and they staff up accordingly, making sure there are multiple coaches if needed for a class. Also, the owners continuously reinvest in new equipment and the facility. You can come here and get fit and be motivated to come back tomorrow, or you can go all the way and take part in the parties and clean-eating challenges and competitions and really be a part of the community – Sanitas provides it all!

— Jeff Mac S., CrossFit Sanitas Member since Nov. 2014


These guys know their stuff! Great coaches – Dwight and the gang really cater to everyone’s needs and abilities and make it funnnn. I’ve been 8 months now, and don’t want to stop because I feel great and energized!
