When Sandra Augustin started training for her second Tri-Fitness competition, she needed a change of pace. She began working out outdoors, jogging along the beach, lunging through parks, and scaling the flag poles at local elementary schools.
She drew a crowd. Friends and passersby started joining in, inspired by her enthusiasm and charisma, and soon a regular Sunday group formed, dubbing themselves S.A.S.S. (Sandra Augustin's Sacramento Sisters). The unexpected support group transformed her training into a motivating, communal experience that Sandra wanted to extend the community. Thus, her gym was born.
Today, Sandra keeps that same spirit alive in group fitness classes and personal-training sessions. She makes use of body-weight resistance exercises, cycles, and cardio-intensified yoga—a style she designed herself—to help her clients sculpt their bodies and rehabilitate their energy levels. She continues to compete internationally in fitness competitions, and organizes a local Hero Challenge obstacle course, an event that pits civilians against the tests used to train police officers, firefighters, and batmen.
