Feeling a little guilty about all the stuffing you ate on Thanksgiving? Feel like you’re cooped up inside the house during the holiday winter months? Get outside and kill two birds with one stone- HIKE! Our friends over at Yelp have created a list of great hikes to take in the Valley. The list includes hikes like Pinnacle Peak, Camelback, and McDowel Sonoran Reserve. Check out the link HERE and start planning a holiday hike with the family!

The Only Bear You’ll Ever Want to Challenge


What’s heavy, scary, and might make you scream? A bear… complex! Today we are working on a barbell complex, or a series of barbell movements done in succession without rest. Check out the video to get familiar with the complex before class! Be sure to note the sequence itself, the variations that can be done with the sequence, and the points at which it may be useful to take your hands off the bar to reset your grip. We can BEAR-ly wait to get started!

You Vs. You: Believe in Yourself and Keep Moving Forward


We love competition at SICFIT Scottsdale. It motivates and inspires us to work harder, keep pushing, and to never ever quit. Sometimes, though, we get caught up in who is faster, who is stronger, and who is more skillful than us. It’s easy to point fingers at the people who we want to beat. Don’t let that happen to you. The only person that finger should be pointed at is yourself. Keep striving for more than you were capable of yesterday. Track of your progress in your SICess journal. Most importantly, don’t be a sore loser when your performance doesn’t meet your expectations. Being a successful athlete requires you to own both your good AND not-so-good performances. Get back in the gym and show the old you who’s boss.

EXPAND in 2016


Stop being lied to. Resolutions are for suckers. Goals are a joke.

To get what you truly want in 2016, you must expand

So Long, Soda! (A Message to Our Lil’ Beasts)

As parents and mentors of Lil’ Beasts, we are up against a lot when it comes to teaching them about nutrition and healthy habits. With billions of dollars spent fast food, soda, and junk food advertising a year, its no wonder that getting our kiddos to trade the potato chips for carrot sticks and soda pop for coconut water can be so difficult!

Don’t worry, though; SICFIT Scottsdale has got your back! Sit your Lil’ Beast down in front of this cartoon and watch it together. Laugh with them at all the silly things the characters do and then help them to understand the real message behind the clip. Ask them questions to help them relate the message to their own lives and experiences. Bring these Lil’ Beast characters to life in your home and let them be your sidekicks in teaching your Beast and Beastette how to make healthy choices!

Happy Thanksgiving from SICFIT Scottsdale!



From all of us at SICFIT Scottsdale, we wish you a very happy Thanksgiving. The gym is closed for the holiday, so spend the day re-fueling with some treats and giving thanks to all of those in your life who have shaped who you are today. 

Thanksgiving Dessert in the Desert!


We all love ending our Thanksgiving dinner with a slice of pumpkin pie. The trouble is when your “one slice” turns into two, then three, then four; before you know it, you’ve eaten an entire pie! This Pumpkin Pie Tartlet recipe from the AZ Foothills Magazine makes the perfect sized personal pumpkin pie dessert. Indulge without the bulge!

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pie Tartlets
 Serves Approximately 15 Tartlets


• Pie Crust:
1.5 cups Almond Flour
1 Egg
2 tablespoons Butter, unsalted

• Pie Filling:
1 can (15 oz) Pumpkin Puree
½ can Coconut Milk, unsweetened
½ cup Honey
2 Eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
½ teaspoon Ginger, ground
¼ teaspoon Cloves, ground
½ teaspoon Sea Salt


• Pie Crust:
Preheat oven to 350 °F. Add all ingredients to a food processor or blender until a smooth dough forms. Spritz muffin pan with non-stick olive oil spray or use muffin liners. Press approximately 1 tablespoon of dough into each cup and press to evenly fill the bottom.

• Pie Filling:
Add all ingredients to a medium sized bowl and mix using a hand mixer until smooth. Or add all ingredients to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Divide filling amongst muffin cups. Bake approximately 10-15 minutes or until center is set. Allow to cool at least 10 minutes before removing from pan.
