Over 15 years of fitness excellence and community service.

Web-DumbbellExercises-.325Coach Lane initially brought Physiques Personal Training to Amelia Island from Arizona in 1995. Over the years, it has operated within the Amelia Wellness Center, the Omni Plantation, and in the City parks of Fernandina Beach, FL. In 2006, Physiques changed names to become CrossFit Amelia Island, and for 9 years, operated under the CrossFit banner. In 2011, with the introduction of new philosophies, our name and culture began to shift slightly into Sandbox Athletics—powered by CrossFit. As exercise science continued to advance, our Coaches continued to soak up the intelligence. Pursuit of learning moved forward and in 2014, we could not hold back our customers and athletes, so Sandbox Athletics was born as its own entity.


Today, at “the box,” Sandbox Athletics boasts 6 Coaches who are all Nationally Certified by major organizations. These are not “2 hour internet tests” and all carry with them very distinct credentials. We hold Certifications with:


  • NSCA (National Strength and Conditioning Association)
  • USA Weightlifting
  • USA Track and Field
  • CrossFit, Inc.
  • American Red Cross

Poor form in the gym is caused by insufficient yelling.
