Athlete of the Month at CrossFit Scottsdale Abhijeet Namjoshi

 Abhijeet Namjoshi lost 21 lbs in 4 months

Hello and thank you for this honor I am a 4 year old graduate student. Love what I am studying, but sitting on my bum all day is a bore. I study Epidemiology (kind of like that movie ‘Outbreak’ except more exciting!!) and public health nutrition. I know all about obesity. The genetics, economics, etc. Ironically, I’ve been overweight since moving to Scottsdale in 1996! It was time to end that once and for all. To see results, one must invest in their health up front. I came to CrossFit Scottsdale Powered by: KAYYEM FITNESS at the end of October 2012 scared out of my mind after hearing about the gym from my dad, who is the Kayyem’s kids’ Pediatrician. I did the baseline and couldn’t move for a few…days. Since then, I crave coming into class and challenging myself. Strength and conditioning has given me the mental and physical toughness to achieve success in both health and school/work. I am more motivated than ever and I can definitely attribute that to being part of this amazing experience. Science is great (I’m a nerd..) and CrossFit Scottsdale makes scientific sense to me which makes it that much better. What I love most about this place is their commitment to community service and community empowerment. Anyone in Public Health will tell you community based initiatives are successful! Thanks to all of the coaches and my fellow classmates, I’ll be fitter than ever in no time. In fact, I’m fitter now than I’ve ever been! Random, but true fact: Arsenal Football Club is better than any team you support :)
