CrossFit Kids

Yesterday I was the guest speaker of a masters degree summer physical education class at ASU. The topic of discussion was CrossFit and kids. The question or should I say the thesis was that CrossFit teaches all students of all ages functional movement, performed with high intensity and that are constantly varied. FMxHIxCV=CF. How about this… Force x Distance/ Time = Power = Results. Pretty boring stuff I know. That’s why I took a model. One of my CF Kids “Firebreathers” ya this kid can spit it with the big boys. Zach my 8 year old stud helped me teach exercises to adults. He was amazing! Performing all of the demos correctly, introducing himself and giving a brief biography and even telling a joke. Zach thank you for your help and for learning at such a young age the importance of exercise, nutrition and overall good, fun, health.

Mentally Challenging= Physically rewarding

CrossFit makes you better at what you do! Period! Police officers, school teachers, grandmas and students. This program changes who you are through mentally challenging work. When you expect the unexpected you are ready for anything…
That’s why today’s W.O.D has a unexpected element to it…

"Raise your game"

Congratulations and thank you to each and every one of you that made my dream of opening CrossFit Scottsdale on Tuesday.
The motto of this story is “Raise your game” and thats just what we have done. When we opened in October of 08′ we had about 8 students coming to 10 classes a week and I was the only coach. 9 months later we have 60 students, 24 classes a week and 4 coaches.

We had 46 people show up on opening day and train. It was so busy that someone joked we needed a bigger space. It was so amazing that two students approached me after about getting there lev 1 CrossFit certs, 3 students came for 2 a days (2 classes in one day), 1 coach tell me he was quitting his career to become a full time coach and so many emails about how amazing of a job we did on the building of our “box”.

With so many of you playing intracate parts in building this place. I have to give an extra special thanks to a few that we could not have done it without. My wife Najla for believing in me. Even when I had my doubts. To my children Kanon and Camille who havent seen their daddy in 2 weeks. I cant wait till Sunday. To Minni me, Coach Bryon, AKA “El Guapo” AKA every second counts you have raised the bar and pushed me to new levels. Finally to Coach Tiffany. You have changed more in a year than you know… physically, mentally and professionally. Your commitment to excellence is unparalleled and it shows not only in the way you train but in the ways you have changed.

Congratulations to Jeff Zuhl for becoming nominated as our June Athlete of the month. Since enrolling in our School in March Jeff has seen significant gains in his strength and stamina. During his 1st baseline he was unable to complete 1 full push up and struggled with 10 from his knees, he can now complete 10+ and finish his baseline in under 7:30 minutes at the intermediate level. Jeff is always early to class, works hard and gives a 100% every time he competes. Thank you Jeff for never giving up. Your dedication to changing your life shows us all that hard work pays off.
