Last night was different. It wasn’t just another evening at the gym or another level test on the schedule. It felt like the early days at SICFIT Scottsdale the “Original Functional Fitness in Scottsdale”. It had the feeling of community, competition and excitement. It was a packed house with friends, relatives, members and ambassadors. The gym mascots were in attendance including Kanon “Boi wonder” Kayyem and “Bond” Davis the boxer. At the end of the night three athletes stood tall and SICcessfully passed the “Red band” Level II test. Congratulations to my long time neighbor, friend and veteran Deric Andre. You have not only come a long way but maintained that way and even improved upon it. To the two ladies in attendance who have been crushing the new SPORT classes and proved it by handling all three parts of the test with confidence and courage.
To the boys who missed passing by a few pull ups, squats or burpees. Thank you for believing in the process. Remember “If it were easy everyone would do it.” You have all put in the work, time and effort and I promise you if you can fill in some of the holes, patch up some chinks in the armor and continue to progress week after week passing is in your future.
As always the attendance of judges, volunteers and ambassadors makes our SICFIT signature Level testing so magical. Judy literally started crying after Deric completed all 10 overhead squats unbroken! Are you kidding me? Try and find that kind of compassion, authenticity and pure love for another human at your local gym. Thank you to all my heroes! I love you with all my heart…. #getfitordie
