Level Testing to Improve Human Performance




I first created the Level Test in 2009 to give a few members my self included a way to repeatedly take a fitness test and see exactly where they stand. It’s become a staple here at SICFIT Scottsdale and a program affiliated at gyms around the world. I hope you enjoy and as always share your score with us or let us know what part you missed or had a challenging time with. I would love to give you some helpful tips and training tools. If you are local and a member we will see you Thursday night at 7pm.

Luke Kayyem

At SICFIT Scottsdale we advocate the importance of quality over quantity. For example, the quality of your reps vs. the number of reps completed; the quality of your WOD (Workout of the Day) vs. the top time on the white board; a few quality workouts during the week vs. a half hearted WOD everyday of the week.

The reason we teach quality is because everything that we do in SICFIT as well as in life is built upon foundation. We must be proficient in one area before moving on to the next. This is where the quality of our reps will help determine the quality of our WOD which in turn determines the quality of our improvements.

SICFIT Scottsdale Level Testing plays an important role for both new members just beginning a workout program and elite competitors as well. First of all, level testing allows us to set a goal and strive for it. We find that focusing on a goal and the steps required to reach it is far more effective then working out aimlessly. Secondly, level testing allows us to set a foundation.

Level Testing allows us to strive for something, work hard for it, hear our names cheered on by coaches and peers, stand on top of the podium to collect our new bands and to wear our Level band with pride, showing off how far we have come to achieve our goals. Because in the end SICFIT is about where we end up, not where we begin.

Level I – White Band
Level II – RED Band
Level III – Camouflage Band

Life is an obstacle now get up and over it


“Life is an obstacle now get over it” have you ever looked at all the tasks, projects, deadlines and struggles of your daily life? Wondering how on Earth am I ever going to get done with and over these challenges.

Does every moment of your deal feel like your tracking through mud and that each time you successfully accomplish something a hundred more come screaming at you?

This is how I felt for years until I found OCR or Obstacle Course Racing and now I look at everything in my life as a race and each individual struggle a different obstacle that I must complete.

Today’s Strength In Conditioning at SICFIT Scottsdale reflects just that! The struggle is real  and if you don’t prepare for it and eventually embrace it you will get kicked on your ASS.

All of the exercises and movements below take up no space or use very much equipment and everything can be scaled to your own appropriate level of fitness.

If you are a beginner start with 10 seconds of each piece then slowly over time and consistency add a longer duration.

Still looking for the perfect Valentines Day gift for your loved one? Search no more!

We have just the thing for the person who wants to get over obstacles. Now put down the chocolate, return the Bear and stop making coupons for massages and breakfast in bed.
