Boulder is an amazing city surrounded by thousands of acres of recreational open space, conservation easements, and nature preserves, making it a dream for any athlete or outdoor enthusiast… it also happens to be a place of extraordinary CrossFit.
There may not be a ton of boxes in the area but it’s been said that quality is more important than quantity, Boulder solidifies that statement.
Two of the top boxes being CrossFit Roots and CrossFit Sanitas.
CrossFit Roots opened almost 9 years ago in a 1-car garage, is now housed in a 10,000 square foot training facility, and is Boulder’s oldest CrossFit gym.
They’re the only female-owned and operated CrossFit gym in Boulder – whose owner also teaches group classes. They have the highest collection of CrossFit Level-3 and Level-4 certified CrossFit coaches of any affiliate in the world, with seven Certified CrossFit Trainers (CF-L3) and two Certified CrossFit Coaches (CF-L4). There are roughly 55 CrossFit Level-4 coaches in the world, they have two of them.
They cap classes at 12 athletes per class to deliver on their belief that above all else, their athletes deserve world-class coaching. You just can’t deliver on a high level of coaching interaction with a 24 person class, not even with two coaches.
CrossFit Sanitas started in Boulder in 2013 and centered around a front desk with full-time staff dedicated purely to that position.
This allowed new athletes, intimidated athletes, drop-ins, and experienced athletes new to town to not only be supported while in class; but also booking an acupuncture session, dealing with membership questions or just needing to calm their nerves about starting this thing called CrossFit
At CrossFit Sanitas it’s all about the support of our athletes and having a good time — they have supervised childcare 7 days/week, a cold plunge pool, 6 fully stocked showers, a functional medicine doctor and PT on staff, and they give all new athletes a free body composition test, goal-setting meeting, and a Functional Movement Screen.
Boulder CrossFit offers CrossFit Classes, Yoga, Mobility Clinics, Nutrition Seminars, CrossFit for Teen Girls, Olympic Weightlifting, Competition WOD’s, Personal Training and more!
Close to Valmont City Park and the Boulder Creek Path, they are able to take advantage of the Boulder weather for workouts outside of the gym or in their 4,500 sf state of the art facility.
