Thank you CrossFit Kids: David, Lauren, Savanna and Kanon.

Team CrossFit Scottsdale

I am pleased to announce the final results for the AZ/SD CrossFit Games Sectionals from this weekends event in San Diego, Ca. We will be sending 3 athletes to Orange County May 8th-9th
for the Southwest Regional. Jeff  “Sarge” Brennan (11th), Brian “B.K Kunitzner (14th)
Erica “E.P” Picard (19th)

This weekend would not have been successful without our team of students who showed thier support by yelling and screaming for all of our athletes. Thank you Coach Tiffany, Jill, Sara, Mo, Carolina, Katie, Angie, Lindsey, Erin, Dani and Brett who was the team photographer and did an amazing job shooting us all. My wife Najla was the Team reporter who stayed online to bring you up to date info, scores and results through Facebook. A special shout out to Dr. Jeff  “Jaz” Zuhl who sponsored our athletes with $500 which allowed us to purchase Paleo snack packs for the competitors all weekend. We had more competitors and more fans than any other CrossFit School and it showed when we cheered on our Team.

My “Purple Heart” award goes out to “Skip” Divelbiss who competed in his very 1st CrossFit competition. Finished all 3 wods unscaled and placed higher than a few avid CrossFitter’s I know. He showed me that pride and perseverance will succeed over attitude and ego all day. Skip you are a SOLDIER and I will go to WAR with you anyday.

"The Best Fish Oil I Have Tasted…


I have searched long and hard for a fish oil supplement that not only has a great ratio of EPA and DHA (the good stuff and the reason you take fish oil in the first place) but that tastes good too.  The search has ended for the moment with Omega Maine from Stronger Faster Healthier.

Independent tests prove StrongerFasterHealthier has the best Omega-3 oils available in North America – without a prescription.

Omega-3 is a natural anti-inflammatory agent.  Chronic inflammation is connected to an array of diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, heart failure, cancer, etc.  The importance of taking the correct dosage of Omega-3 oils cannot be overstated. 

In short, our Omega-3 oils have: 

  • Zero after fish burp, zero fish taste
  • The correct dosage and potency strength to ensure maximum health benefits- you would need to take 6-30 capsules of a competitor’s product to get our same dosage
  • Super fast absorption: Omega liquid oil formulation optimizes absorption efficiency and allows omega-3 fats to compete with the omega-6 bad fats.

JUST 2tsp of Omega Maine = 3.5 grams (1825EPA/1675DHA)  Which makes taking the appropriate dose a lot easier to swallow!
