What’s happening at SICFIT Scottsdale this April 2015?
Wether you want to get off of the couch, look better naked or compete in your first race there is no better place than SICFIT Scottsdale especially right now! April is here and it has already sprung with temperatures getting up into the high 80’s and even a few days reaching above 90 degrees. So let’s get outside while we can! Starting this Saturday at 6am and repeating each and every weekend we will be leading a group up Pinnacle Peak. As an avid outdoorsman and master of thrill seeking fitness P.P.P or Pinnacle Peak Parkway for long have become a staple of my Strength in Conditioning and a weekly part of my my life. This 2.2 mile loop is perfect for everyone looking to get outside and get in shape before we spend the summer indoors.
With challenging vertical climbs and stairs on both the start and turn around points, this trail is for all ages and levels. The hike takes somewhere between 40 minutes and 2 hours. Bill Ditman holds the over and back course record in just over 30 minutes flat and when we walk it with the kids the course can take almost 2 hours. The path is very well manicured with a restroom at the base along with water and a volunteer post.
On Easter Sunday we will be meeting at base camp at 8am sharp to walk or run and enjoy a beautiful morning outside as a fitness community. Please bring closed toe shoes and a bottle of water. Wear a hat and sunglasses and put on your sunscreen.
The following weekend Saturday April 11th classes will be moved to North Site Park and are free for everyone including 8am Endurance, 9am all levels, 10am yoga and all kids and teens at 11am. SICFIT Scottsdale is the host facility for the USAW United States of America Weightlifting Sports Performance certification and will be doing continuing education for coaches.
April 13th through the 18th is “GUEST DAYS” so be sure to bring a friend, family member, neighbor, colleague or anyone who might need a LIFEstyle change and upgrade in FITness. We will have a leaderboard for the most guests brought in that week and the winner will receive some SICFIT swag and a private training lesson with one of our Coaches.
April 17th join our Gymnastics squad and receive 2 hours of in depth coaching and instruction on movements like the hand stand, muscle up and kipping pull up. The cost of this seminar is $25 and will be from 6:30pm-8:30 pm on a Friday evening. All levels and ages are welcome.
April 23rd It’s time for our signature Level II test the “Red” band. Show up and don’t quit as a participant, judge or volunteer. As always our level testing is a valuable piece of our training philosophy and gives students an opportunity to test themselves and against their peers. The show starts at 7pm be ready and warmed up by 6:45pm.
April 25th Please join our family in our annual tradition of attending “Pat’s Run” from Sun Devil stadium. This event brings joy and tears to my eyes in a way that I have never experienced before. My first Pat’s Run came in 2009 with both of my kids being pushed in our double stroller. The next year I carried Camille who was 3 years old at the time the entire 4.2 mile loop on my shoulders. A year later I decided to carry an #80 sandbag on my back and last year my son Kanon who was 7 ran the entire race in 42 minutes, makin me one proud Poppa and Coach. This is one of those events you won’t want to miss or wish you had remembered. We will carpool directly from SICFIT Scottsdale at 5:30 am or find your own way down and meet up at Coral 10 minute mile dressed in your brightest SICFIT gear.
Recipe of the month:
This is one of my all time favorite breakfast recipes that I just made for dinner last night. The kids will flip out and you don’t have to feel guilty about a single ingredient.
2 ripe bananas
2 eggs whole
2 table spoons almond butter smooth
1/8 cup almond flower add more for thicker consistency
Mush all ingredients up with a fork until you see no more lumps.
Medium griddle or frying pan.
Light coconut oil spray.
*Add fresh berries, macadamia nuts, pecans or almond slivers. Light honey or real syrup. *We love to toss some light coconut milk over the top of everything.
Cook up some protein and slice some fruit and you have what I like to call the “Birthday Breakfast” so good you would ask for it on your special day.
