The studio at CrossFit Sonoma County pulses with high-intensity workout\
\ routines. Led by coaches Sarah Pierce\
\ and Dan Schmieding, who both compete in national CrossFit events and hold\
\ multiple CrossFit certifications, students undergo varied exercises from the scheduled\
\ Workout of the Day. Sarah and Dan circumnavigate the floor, guiding movements,\
\ ensuring safety, and gingerly removing any unnoticed "Kick Me" signs pinned\
\ to T-shirts. \nCombining weightlifting, gymnastics, and track-and-field techniques,\
\ CrossFit aims to build resilience, strength, and versatility, equipping students\
\ with the stamina for athletic and everyday activities. Instructors scale each\
\ workout up or down to accommodate individual levels of fitness or exercisers recovering\
\ from restrictive injuries. Encompassing more than 3,000 square feet, CrossFit\
\ Sonoma County’s gym—nicknamed “the playground”—houses atypical equipment such\
\ as pommel horses, suspended rings, tires, sledgehammers, and weight sleds to facilitate\
\ each patron’s fitness goals."
