Our Approach

We support our members in their pursuit of health and fitness in a supportive environment. Beginner, or advanced. Our programming is constantly varied with a focus on strength and conditioning. Each class begins with mobility and warm up. Followed by strength portion and then we finish with up metabolic conditioning. We want you to prepare you for any competition, sport, or whatever life throws at you.

Why HGX?

Our priority is supporting you to meet your potential. The HGX team has 40+ years of coaching experience across different disciplines. We want to share it with you. CrossFit may begin in the gym, but that's not where it ends. You'll learn new things about yourself, make different life choices, approach challenges with confidence and develop new friendships. You'll understand movement and what your body is capable of and apply that to your daily life.

Sara Marston Coach

Sara has been a busy-body since she was a wee lass. Both parents were, and still are, very active and encouraged Sara to participate in lots of sports. She played basketball, fast-pitch softball, golf, volleyball, dance, competed in archery and was even a cheerleader. In December of 1999, Sara enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps. She served for four years and was honorably discharged at the rank of Sergeant. Upon discharge, Sara attended massage therapy school, which piqued her interest in musculoskeletal anatomy, Physiology, and Kinesiology. In 2007, Sara transferred to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to finish her Bachelor’s in Chemistry. While Sara still considers chemistry a very important field, she decided to pursue a career that she was more passionate about, wine. After five years in the wine business in North Carolina Sara moved to the Bay Area to continue selling fine wine and spirits to restaurants and boutique retail shops in the Peninsula.

Before being introduced to CrossFit by a dear friend, Sara practiced yoga for five years. She struggled to maintain a regular exercise regimen of yoga and occasional running. After her first class at CrossFit Local in Chapel Hill, NC in December 2010 she was hooked. Initially, Sara was allured by the constantly varied, functional, and scalable aspects of CrossFit workouts, but the community is what has sustained her presence. Sara has been a CrossFit Level 1 trainer since June 2012. She is ecstatic to have the fortune of sharing her love for the healthy lifestyle that CrossFit fosters with newcomers and seasoned athletes alike.
