Sarah and Ben Sands


Their first date was a hike along the Potomac River in Washington, DC. Their second was a run through the Lincoln, Jefferson and Roosevelt memorials. Needless to say, fitness has been a part of their relationship from the very beginning.

Sarah and Ben moved to Daniel Island from Washington, DC in the spring of 2014 and choose the island in large part because of its fitness “culture” (hence, the name of the studio).

Sarah and Ben care deeply about helping talented men and women live rich, fulfilling, high-impact lives. In addition to Fit Culture, Sarah and Ben also own Dance Trance DC – a dance fitness company based in Washington, DC, and Sands Leadership – an executive coaching and leadership development company). Their most important “startup” though? Their 18-month old son, Jack!
