Who we are.
WHY MOVEMENT IN SAND?
- SAND took 4x Olympian Reid Priddy completely off of his normal daily amount of 1600 mg ibuprofen and gained him 5 pounds of lean muscle mass.
- More lean muscle? Less joint pain?
- Sand will both support your body and challenge your body!
TEAM was the very reason 4x Olympian Reid Priddy went to four Olympics.
- It took me being outside the context of team to realize how powerful team is when it comes to consistency and motivation.
- Don’t we always go further in the context of a team?
- There’s a proverb that says:
- “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
- Our community is a community that wants to go far.
Founder | Owner
I'm compelled to push perceived boundaries and inspire collaboration so that we all reach our max potential together. Having a group on mission as a team: that is the power of sport. If we can provide that for people with 40 hour work weeks, that's our goal.

The biggest thing that drives me is the chance to see a transformation happen and the joy that comes from it. As a player, it was my favorite thing to understand a new concept, see the benefit of it, then drive it home until I became good at it. Seeing those moments in the people I coach is the reason I do it because I know how awesome that feeling is (of improving) and it is what drove me every day to improve (and still does) in my own career.

Culture and Team
My why is based on the belief that no mission should ever be done alone. That’s why I am compelled to build up healthier leaders that lead healthy teams, so that no mission is ever done alone.
