Rx Challenge Week 2…

Take 10 Firebreathers, 4 WODs, and a little thing called competition and you get the Rx Challenge Week2! Here are the WODs and the standings going into the finals on Saturday at 8am.  Winner will be announced on Saturday and take home the Rx Challenge Trophy.


Shoulders to Overhead 95#/65#
Challengers face head to head with a partner starting with the bar in the rack position.  Judge calls “1” partner one does one rep, the other partner does 1 rep right after partner one is done.  After all participants have finished their one rep the judge calls “2”.  Partner one does 2 reps, partner two does 2 reps right after partner one finishes.  After all participants have finished, the judge calls “3”.  That continues until the rep cannot be completed and the bar comes out of the rack position.  BAR MUST REST IN THE RACK POSITION AND YOU MAY NOT PUT THE BAR DOWN.  Count total reps.

Athlete Of the Month

From a skinny kid to a solid stud. We honor Paul Zetah this month for his attributes as a student in the classroom at CrossFit Scottsdale and for how far he has come the last few years outside the gym.
Headed down the same road alot of us found ourselves drinking and partying his dad Roger had a man to man talk with him and now 3 years later he is the healthiest he has ever been in his life.
Dedicating his life to himself and his family Paul has climbed the ranks from Level I to Level II and will definitely be apart of our Level III exam. Congratulations Paul it is a pleasure pushing you to your limits.

CrossFit Kids Teamwork

Teamwork is an integral part of life and the only way some of us get through a WOD. With the support and comraderie of your fellow crossfitters and teammates you can push yourself harder and perform better.  For our CrossFit Scottsdale Kids, they get introduced to teamwork at an early age.  Not only do they learn to work together but they learn to cheer eachother on and support their teamates too.  Nothing makes me smile more than when our heroes are giving “hi fives”!

"Hell Week"

It’s my Birthday and I’ll cry if you make me? For my “21st” Birthday I partied in Vegas till 4 in the morning. When I turned “26” I celebrated by opening a Night Club and at “30” I celebrated by the Grand Opening of CrossFit Scottsdale. So what does the owner and Coach of a CrossFit want this year? “Hell Week” 5x days of the hardest most physically and mentally challenging training on the planet. SEAL FIT is an integral and functional Mind-Body-Spirit training program developed by former Navy SEAL, competetive athlete and martial artist Mark Divine.  Combining training of the mind, body and spirit in the warrior athlete tradition, SEAL FIT is a full-spectrum functional fitness, mental toughness and self awareness training program.

SEAL FIT is popular with CrossFit and competetive athletes, special ops candidates and any professional who seeks to develop serious mental toughness and fortitude, and learn to operate at peak capacity for long periods of time.  SEAL FIT emphasizes Strength, Stamina, Work Capacity, Endurance and Durability development.  Our primary tools are CrossFit, SEAL-inspired Team and Mental Toughness Training, Austere Tools, Hybrid Programming and the Environment. Here is an example of Seal Fit programming. We will be starting a “Hell Week” style training program in October. 2x workouts a day for 5x days. Participants who accomplish and achieve this honor will be recognized on the Warrior wall of fame and have a limited edition “Hell week” CrossFit Scottsdale t-shirt.
