Awesome job so far CrossFit Scottsdale! What results have you seen so far?

 These totals do not include week 4 and if you are not listed I don’t have your numbers.  Make sure you points are up on the tracking sheets in the gym to be included in next week’s leaderboard.  There are 2 weeks left to collect points.  Every point counts so let’s step it up! 

Finals are May 22nd.  You will need to come to either the  9am or 1oam WOD and the challenge measurement finals at 11:30am.   

Post results to comments.

WOD rules: 
Teams of 4
Only 2 people can be competing at a time

 “If you are going to doubt something, doubt your limits.” ~Don Ward.


 If you cannot be there in body, at least be there in spirit!  Follow all of the action at the Southwest CrossFit Regional Championships held at the University of California in Irvine live on the first-ever webcast. They will be streaming coverage all day on Saturday and Sunday with six cameras, three full time announcers, and at least four guest announcers at You will be able to watch some of the top individuals in the country including our own Brian “BK” Kunitzer, Jeff “Sarge” Brennan, and Erica “EP” Picard.  Don’t forget of course the team competition where CrossFit Scottsdale is going to kill the competition! The road to the CrossFit Games in July gets a little shorter and a whole lot steeper. Cheer on all of the competitors from CrossFit Scottsdale and get close to real time updates through our Facebook Fan page, For those of you who will be unable to watch the competition live, they will be creating archives of each hour’s footage for download on demand. Enjoy!! And…Go CrossFit Scottsdale. We will be having our own “live” webcast viewing here at CrossFit Scottsdale on Saturday from 9am-3pm.  Come and do the 9am or 10am WOD, go to Food as Fuel at 11:30pm and watch as all our hard work gets tested in the best of competitions!

Probably one of my favorite quotes and very appropriate for this point in the Paleo Challenge.  We are over the half way point and if you’ve been “trying” to do paleo up to this point you probably aren’t where you want to be.  Its time to stop “trying” and just do it! 

If you want to make sure you are on the right track, make an appointment to get your body fat tested with Dr. Bosch.  Then depending on where you are at see a coach so we can make some adjustments before the finals.  Dr. Bosch has offered the midpoint testing at $20 so take advantage of it. Visit for her contact information.  Results at the 4 week point will be posted on Saturday!

Let’s all be on track for the last two weeks!!

Why do you CrossFit? – I crossfit for the intense work outs and the constant push to give it everything I’ve got.   The workouts are short, sweet and torturous.  For some reason, I’m addicted to pushing my body to the max to claim the coveted prize to rule a random woman to which we call Fran, Karen, etc.

Why do you CrossFit?  I CrossFit because it is the total mind body experience. I am getting older yet am in better overall shape than ever, and know that in the future, I will be stronger and faster than today. I consistently look better naked. I feel healthier, have more energy and am more alive than ever before. I love the community and the positive spirit of crossfit. Oh, and I am addicted.
