CrossFit Sand & Steel is an amazing gym with some of the best coaches and trainers! I've had the opportunity to work with four of the coaches and each one of them is phenomenal! I chose the CrossFit Sand & Steel personal training program to help me get back into shape after an injury and the coaches quickly became part of my recovery plan. They're all incredibly knowledgeable, motivating, and really invested in their clients. I'm now stronger, faster, and more mobile because of them. I truly wish I had started at sooner! Less

There are lots of CrossFit Gyms in the Northern Virginia area. What makes Sand and Steel stand out above others is the coaching and care they provide to the members. They just don't throw you in to workouts and expect you to figure things out. Instead, Paul, Dawn, and the rest of the coaching staff take their time to make sure you scale appropriately. The coaches make sure you work on mobility and nutrition, along with your workout. In my case, I have had a series of prior injuries, and moreover, I had consistent cramping and dehydration problems during workouts. No matter what supplements I took or how much water I drank, I would get light-headed, and my muscles would cramp. In short, my body simply refused to hold water. For years, I thought there was something medically wrong with me. Paul recommended a great supplement as a pre-workout, and then the cramping was gone. Like Magic. Now, my conditioning, strength, and overall performance greatly improved. So, like I said before... coaching makes a huge difference. This gym comes highly recommended. Less

I joined Sand and Steel about a year ago and I’m very happy with the gym and progress I’ve made so far! The classes are very organized and the coaches are highly trained. Paul and Dawn provide a variety of classes such as regular CrossFit class, competitors, run club, yoga etc. They even run specialty courses throughout the year such as Olympic weightlifting and gymnastics to fine tune those complex movements to enhance performance. I’ve improved my fitness in all areas including strength, endurance, mobility, and high intensity cardio. I go multiple times a week and my husband saw how much fun I was having, so he decided to join too! Less

Excellent, highly recommend. I do personal training-coaches are extremely knowledgeable, focusing on form and appropriate scaling while making things challenging. Very nice space and very clean. I haven't done Crossfit classes but bet, since it's in their name, they're excellent too. Nutrition & mobility labs also offered. It took me a while to get back to the gym and I'm happy to have chosen here--Get yourself to Sand & Steel! Less

There is no shortage of CrossFit gyms in NoVA but Sand & Steel Fitness strikes the perfect balance of exceedingly knowledgeable coaches, thoughtful programming, an enthusiastically welcoming community, and the cleanest gym you'll ever walk into. The exercise equipment and pro shop gear/supplements are all top of the line - you can tell that a lot of time is invested into making sure that S&S is outfitted with the high quality fitness products you need to reach your goals. Group classes are intentionally small so coaches consistently provide the feedback necessary to promote progress and prevent injury. In conjunction with the workouts, Nutrition and Mobility coaching create the perfect antidote for the desk life that plagues many of us in the DMV area. Sand & Steel meets everyone where they are, making it easy to just show up and do the work. Paul and Dawn maintain a strong culture of safety, standards, and support so, no matter what class or session you're in, you will get top tier instruction, modifications, and motivation from day one.
