Last Friday these 8 brave men completed the 2 hour SealFit class at CrossFit Scottsdale. It took almost 45 minutes to get these guys working as a team. Then partner “Cindy” 10x rounds each of 5 pullups/10 pushups/15 squats while the Teammate holds at the bottom of a squat “It pays to be a winner” filled the air from Guest CrossFit Coach and Staff Sergeant Christian Nichols a great friend of mine from Luke Air Force Base. After a short hydration break the boys were asked to grab a medicine ball #20 and get it overhead, then I asked a simple question… Who is the strongest one here? Within 3 seconds Brandon “Slo Mo” Nee yelped out “I am sir” I then asked… Who is the smartest one here? Once again Nee answered “I am sir”. We had found our leader and he was ready for what was next. It was a med ball run to Starbucks on the 101 a few miles down the road that took just under the 15 minute cap. Upon arrival we hydrated with coffee for the coaches and water for the unit a SealFit class standard. Then the final Evolution was given to get back in under 10 minutes together as a team. 3.2.1 GO they took off in a single file line through the Walmart parking lot and we followed behind. They turned the corner off of Brotherus at the start of minute 9 and sprinted through the street to finish at 9:41.
For the last 20 minutes two time Hell Week graduate, current bad ass and Coach Jen D fired away for someone to get the 5 count burpees right and when nobody answered she sent them back out for a run up the road. After a few more exercises we ended class with all 8 guys stepping forward and crossing the line to show they were committing to the SealFit program.
The SealFit class is from 0500-0700 every Friday for 8 weeks then a 2 week break. It counts as 2 classes and you must wear your black classic CrossFit Scottsdale ts/tanks. Anyone and everyone is welcome to drop in or give it a try as long as you carry a white band or have completed Hell Week I or II. Only those who complete 8 classes in a row will graduate with honor. This class will test the limits of your physical capabilities while pushing you past anything you ever thought was possible mentally.
