Failing to Plan, is Planning to Fail

Hey Everyone!
Most of you know me as Ashley, one of the newest CrossFit Scottsdale Students.  I have known Luke and Najla for a little over two years now but  I just joined CrossFit Scottsdale about two months ago.  So what took me so long? Well, obtaining the commitment, dedication, and most importantly PLANNING was the key to my sucess for being here today. Just like Coach says it “Failing to Plan, is Planning to Fail”  could not be more true for me. In order for me to stay successful on my new CrossFit lifestyle, I plan out my weeks and classes for a month ahead of time. I treat my gym session as if it was a scheduled client meeting…you wouldn’t be late to, or miss an important meeting, right?  I write it down in pen in my planner and I am proud to say, I have not missed a scheduled CrossFit session. I am also working the Paleo Diet and I’m feeling better than ever with this lifestyle change, all because of planning ahead for it! I also use the Success Journal the coaches give you religiously, writing down every workout, meal, and all of the water I drink…this leaves no room for error and taking responsibility for everything you do. So go ahead, book your sessions online for the entire month, write them down, plug them into your blackberry, but make that commitment, treat it like a very important meeting, and you will be surprised on how committed you will stay to the program.
Good luck, and happy planning.

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.
