At CrossFit Scottsdale, we are well-aquainted with work-outs like the one on the agenda for today — where push as hard as you can to finish as fast as you can is the name of the game.  Many of us can look in the mirror or check in with our heath-stats to find evidence of the effectiveness of this type of workout — we are stronger, fitter, healthier, and happier.

But how many of us have tried to find these same results in a workout of a different kind? One that is much slower, more sustained, controlled, but just as difficult? How many of us are willing to challenge ourselves to find complex movement within stillness, to find strength within gracefulness, and to align ourselves with the balance between effort and ease?

If this type of challenge strikes a cord within you, then our newly offered Yoga classes are calling your name.  Classes are offered Tuesdays at 7pm and Wednesdays at 9:30am  and are a part of your CrossFit Scottsdale membership. Come check it out and see for yourself the power you can cultivate using only your body, your breath, and your mind.
