Not every gym features a sprawling indoor sandpit, a SURFSET FITNESS surf board fitness program, and a Movestrong functional training system that looks like a suped-up jungle gym—and that's the way Sandpit Fitness likes it. The family-owned fitness center features all those things plus palm trees and its own tiki bar to complete the island theme. Their group fitness classes take advantage of the studio's unique equipment for a novel, fun, and effective workout.
The Bar Method is a single full-body workout—but in a way, it seems more like four workouts. The class—which takes place at the ballet barre and on mats—blends
interval training, toning isometrics, dance conditioning, and elements of physical therapy. Participants improve posture and work all the major muscle groups at the West Plaza or Leawood locations. The Bar Method also transforms physiques—flattening abs, toning arms, and slimming thighs. For added convenience, workout participants can sign up their kids for childcare at the studio's kids room while they attend class.

Experienced fighters lead kickboxing sessions for students of all levels, teaching proper jab form, while hardcore classes efface musculoskeletal torpors by employing weights and medicine balls to make muscles burn with satisfaction, like an insult uttered from the lips of a sarcastic fire swallower. Clients can also find their inner hardbodies during boot camp sessions. Group workouts take place throughout the day, including early mornings and lunch hours, and fitness students can discover temporal directions via the gym’s summer and fall-spring schedules.
