December Athlete of the month.

I learned about CrossFit through a friend who was already working out with Luke.  She invited me to join her for a couple classes to see how I liked it.  I was hooked from the get go!  I hadn’t realized how mundane my workout routine had become.  Sure we did a different bodypart every day but it was still the same from week to week.  It’s been 4 months since I started CrossFit and I haven’t repeated a WOD yet.  Luke really mixes it up and it’s never the same thing.  The classes are small which is nice.  It’s a team environment and we all want to see the other succeed.  The best part is the results I’ve seen.  I feel like I have made significant gains in my core strength.  My legs and arms have never been this toned and I have never felt better!

#52 Merry Christmas

Aloha and Melikalikimaka,
from all of us at CrossFit Scottsdale. We wish you and your family a very happy, healthy holiday. May 2009 be your best year yet. Here is your Christmas day W.O.D. Get the whole family up and out for this No Equipment needed workout.

Pack up the stroller, get the leash and head outside. Walk, hike, bike or run for 30 minutes. Then do 1 push up. Stand up turn around and do 2 push ups. Stand up turn around and do 3 push ups. All the way to 20. Lunge in place for 5 min alternating legs. Try to drink a glass of water before and  after each plate of food you eat. This will help flush your system and trick your body into feeling full. After you are done training take a nap and enjoy your day with the ones you love.

“Just move baby” 


  • Calories – Dancing can burn as many calories as walking, swimming or riding a bicycle. During a half-hour of dancing you can burn between 200 and 400 calories.
  • Cardiovascular Conditioning – Regular exercise can lead to a slower heart rate, lower blood pressure and improved cholesterol profile.
  • Strong Bones – The Lateral movements of many dances strengthens you weight bearing bones (tibia, fibula and femur) and can help prevent or slow loss of bone mass (osteoporosis).
  • Rehabilitation- If you’re recovering from heart or knee surgery, movement may be part of your rehabilitation. Dancing is a positive alternative to aerobic dancing or jogging.
  • Sociability – Dancing contains a social component that solitary fitness endeavors don’t. It gives you an opportunity to develop strong social ties which contribute to self-esteem and a positive outlook on life.
