Heal, Evolve, and Lead

Welcome to H.E.A.L. where our passion is making our community healthier one person at a time.


H.E.A.L. (Heal, Evolve, and Lead) was conceived at the start of the pandemic by Sarah Galambos and Ben Cohen as a way to create community connection and collaboration. Sarah and Ben first met in the Leadership Sandy Springs class of 2019. There they learned the importance of community leadership and they embody that philosophy through H.E.A.L.


H.E.A.L. is a network of health conscious people and businesses working together to create community connection and collaboration through Free Community Fitness in Sandy Springs. Small- to medium-sized businesses are showcased as vendors at each event to increase their visibility and connection with the citizens of Sandy Springs.  The Fall, Winter and Summer fitness series serve to create a fun place for the community to gather and experience free fitness classes led by top trainers in the area.

Mission and Vision

Bring a robust schedule of Free Community Fitness to Sandy Springs Parks and green spaces. Add value and health to our Sandy Springs community through free fitness/wellness classes.
