CrossFit Scottsdale Connections- Presented by Jon Kaufman of Zog Media

June Meeting is sponsored by Jon Kaufman of  Zog Media, Inc.

So….you come to CrossFit Scottsdale weekly, completing an extensive workout for an hour full of push-ups, pull-ups and squats, and you workout alongside several fellow CrossFitters on a regular basis, and you still don’t know anything about their profession, worse, they don’t know what you do. Well, lets fix that.

  CrossFit Scottsdale Connections will be holding their second meeting Tuesday, June 15th from 12pm-1pm.  This months networking meeting will be held at Zog Media 18835 N. Thompson Peak Pkwy Scottsdale, AZ 85255 and hosted by CrossFit Scottsdale Connections member Jon Kauffman.   

The event will rotate to a local CrossFitter’s place of business monthly on the third Tuesday of the month from noon-1pm. The first Connections event you attend is free, come check it out. Lunch will be provided.   Please email to let us know if you would like to sign up and/or if you will be attending this months meeting.

Journaling Success

Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable… Every step toward the goal… requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.
 – Martin Luther King Jr.

Version 2.0 of our Success Journals are now available in the gym and thru our Online Store. We spent a lot of time revising the journal and adding content based on our student suggestions and our own experience. We could not be happier with how Version 2.0 turned out. We now have all of the Girl WOds, Hero WODs, and Benchmark WODs listed in the front of the journal. The revision we are most excited about is that the daily WOD log and nutrition log are now on the same page. This means no flipping between sections and no excuses for not logging your nutrition! Get one from a coach today and start journaling your way to elite fitness.

“Flex” Those Muscles

The intense hero WOD’s programmed this week and the resulting soreness I know we are all feeling serves as a perfect backdrop for bringing up every CrossFitter’s favorite tenant, flexibility.   The CrossFit Journal Article by Roger Harrell, Stretching and Flexibility, points out that flexibility does not come with strength training but that in fact strength training without stretching can lead to a dramatic reduction in flexibility.  Taken to the extreme (aka CrossFit hero WODs) lack of flexibility can actually result in the loss of high-performance function (think overhead squats).  So basically intense training without proper stretching as a counter balance will lead to a deterioration in performance.

So what do you as a CrossFitter need to do?…Commit to stretching daily if not multiple times daily.  Even a couple of daily but short 10-15 minute stretching sessions will lead to increased gains in flexibility and ultimately gains in performance.  As a CrossFitter you need to stretch everything but additional attention should be paid to the shoulders, core and hips.  Our CrossFit Scottsdale Yoga classes are designed to pay special attention to the areas and will give you ideas for stretches that you can easily incorporate into a daily routine.   Classes are offered Wednesdays at 6pm and Fridays at 4:30pm conveniently before the new strength class.   So come flex your muscles as often as you can.

Guess who's more flexible...
