Eyes on the Prize of Wellness


Programming for Monday, August 19, 2013

Wellness is not something that you either have or you don’t. Rather, it is something that we must commit to ourselves from moment to moment. In this sense, wellness is nothing more than the result of a series of decisions: A decision to eat the food that will fuel our bodies rather than weigh us down; a decision to be a conductor of our own energy by being active rather than letting it become stagnant and stale; a decision to have a long term focus upon our lives and doing the things now that will makes us feel better later. Wellness is a process. Let us honor the ups and down, successes and failures, and always keep our gaze afixed to the prize of a well, happy, and productive life.

Rest Rx


Programming for Friday, August 15, 2013

The notion that needing to rest is an indication of weakness couldn’t be further from the truth. Rest allows our bodies to refuel themselves, to build itself back up, and to come back stronger than before. Experience the power of rest in today’s workout and consider how is resting for just one minute reboosts your energy, imagine what resting from consecutive days of training can do. Rest is not the weak, but rather for those who want to experience their body’s full potential.

SICFIT Team Spirit


Programming for Thursday, August 15, 2013

Working out as a team is an unparalleled experience. Suddenly, the effort you put into each pull, press, push, and squat matters to not just you, but to your teammate as well. Suddenly, we become personally and emotionally invested in the experience of another person — their successes and failures are your successes and failures. Suddenly, your daily workout becomes more than a source to build physical strength and endurance, it becomes a source that builds and fosters human communal spirit.

WOW! Is it Already Wednesday?


Programming for Wednesday, August 14, 2013

This weekly test of fitness will have you jumping for joy… once it’s over that is! With three minutes on the clock, and at the call of “3, 2, 1, GO!” you will have one task, and one task alone — box jumps! While this task may be simple, the execution will be no less difficult than even the most complex conditioning regimens. There will be a bit of strategy involved too, as your score is your number of reps multiplied by the hight of the box you select. Choose wisely and let’s get to jumping!


Mobility work + plyometrics
Box jump technique
Bench press 10, 8, 6, 4, 2
15x Sit ups after each set above
3 Minute max box jump/step ups
Score =  reps x height

Stretch of the Week

Trying to find more range of motion in the shoulder? A tight Latissimus Dorsi might be the problem area to target. Try these mobilizing stretches on for size this week and then experiment with the results!


When Life Gets you Down… Deadlift it Back Up!


The Deadlift. Such a simple concept. All it is, is picking something up off the ground. However, when executed exceptionally well — with proper technique, efficient energy transfer, and with an attitude of unbroken determination — the deadlift becomes an act of empowerment, enabling you pick up any obstacle that should lie on the ground before you obstructing your path.  Lift on brothers and sisters in fitness!

Never too old to be empowered by a heavy deadlift!

Rock on Rock Tape!

We just keep coming out with the coolest and most functional products for you at CrossFit Scottsdale. We presented you with RipFix that will help heal those annoying rips we get every now and then, and now we have Rock Tape.

RockTape is a special kind of tape known as kinesiology tape. First used by acupuncturists and chiropractors in Japan, today kinesiology tape is used by practitioners throughout the world to treat injuries and improve sports performance.

While the use of kinesiology is often associated with athletes such as Serena Williams, Kerri Walsh and Lance Armstrong, the reality is that RockTape is effective for the treatment of a wide variety of problems, not just sports injuries.

Rock Tape can be used for:

• Achilles tendonitis
• Plantar fasciitis
• Jumpers knee (PFS)
• ACL/MCL issues
• Rotator cuff
• Groin and hamstring pulls
• Lower back issues
• Shin splints
• Tennis and golf elbow
• Pain associated with pregnancy
• Postural correction

When applied properly, Rocktape can help athletes improve form and decrease fatigue through better blood flow. These are the two most critical aspects of increasing performance in almost any sport.
