What sets us apart from other gyms in our area is that we focus on making sure that you are fully prepared and ready for our group classes. We are focused on lifelong functional fitness for our clients…not just throwing you into a class environment without a knowledge of the movements and proper technique. Our group classes are for our members that have obtained a proficiency in functional movements and a good baseline of fitness.
We have spent many years studying, learning and experimenting with ways to get people fit in a safe and effective manner. We have learned how to get people motivated and to keep them injury-free so they can be fit for life, not just for a quick fix.
We strongly believe in the research that Greg Glassman, the founder of CrossFit, shared with the fitness community several years back in the CrossFit Journal article “What is Fitness?”. He prescribed a formula of constantly varied, functional movements, at high intensity. We follow this formula that has been proven across high-level professional athletes as well as those simply seeking to be a more fit version of themselves.
This philosophy that Glassman began teaching has been shown to be effective in prescription, however we have seen it work best in a one-on-one environment. The functional movements that Glassman refers to are effective, yet challenging and complex. For this reason we require our athletes to show both proper mechanics and consistency in these movements prior to adding intensity. These movements are taught best under the watchful eye and the skill set of a great coach. Putting you into a group class without personalized coaching both makes you uncomfortable but more importantly puts you at high risk of injury.
We have learned over the years that a higher coach to athlete ratio provides a better learning experience but also a safer environment. It allows the athletes to learn better movement patterns and as a by product yields a healthier community of people.
At Sanctify you will start out in a safe one-on-one environment with your coach who will know you personally and guide you each step along the way. Once you are able to show mechanics and consistency at a high level of intensity, then we will move you into group classes.
All of this to say, we want you to be the healthiest you have ever been for life.
