Same weight, same bar entire time. It is okay to set it down, although the workout is for time so set it down sparingly.

This weekend was one of the single most significant weekends of my life. As I look back on it now, it couldn’t of been better. On Friday we commemorated the “Heroes of September 11th” by honoring those who lost their lives and the ones fighting for freedom in our country today. We had over 135 people participate in 4 classes. In heats of two we divided the students in half and had the 2nd round student count rounds for the 1st. The W.O.D was an “AMRAP” as many rounds as possible in 20 minutes. 9 burpees/11 pull ups/21 KB swings. Both winners Coach Erica with 7 RX and Chris LaLanne RX finished with 9 rounds.
At the 10am class I watched one of the most emotional events I have ever witnessed since 2001. The General of Luke Air Force Base re-enlisting a soldier by swearing him in. There were children and grandparents, babies and a 76 year old newbee who showed off by doing 14 pull ups. Friends, family and significant others who had never experienced CrossFit before. Some of our own students arrived at 5am to help and stayed till 1pm to watch, cheer and even take a 2nd class *B.K
Saturday night we turned CFS into a night club with a dj, fashion show, bartender and Baseline challenge. When we hit max capacity at 7:30 we knew it was gonna be a party CrossFit Scottsdale style. For those of you that missed it, check out this video by Maribel LaLanne of LaLanne Fitness.
There are so many people I want to thank but it all starts with you, my students. If it was not for you none of this would be possible. Lets continue to change the way we look at health and fitness and keep this amazing community we have created growing.
