Team CrossFit Scottsdale competed in the Mad Mud Run yesterday. Jogging, crawling, jumping and diving in dirt and mud over and under obstacles. We had a great time and completed the race in under 45 minutes. Thank you for coming out and showing your support for the greatest workout in Scottsdale. We will be holding our 1st challenge December 20th @11am. A 5K run (3.11 miles) that will start and end at the edge on wellness. So start training and tell all your friends about it. This is a family style event bring the kids and dog. Snacks and drinks will be included.
When I started working with Luke I had no idea what CrossFit meant or what it offered. All I know was that after spending the last few years hunched behind a computer monitor I was in the worst shape of my life, and it was time for a change. When my sister mentioned she was really enjoying working out with Luke, I though ‘What the heck…’ and decided to give it a try.
Several months and many workouts later, I can honestly say that it has been one of the best decisions I’ve made in a long time. The variety in the workouts and the constantly changing challenges keep them interesting and enjoyable, but they are never so hard that working out is discouraging. Luke does a great job coaching and motivating, to maximize the benefit of each exercise while keeping everything safe by making sure your form is always good and the load is always appropriate. The workouts are intensive, but always possible to do with a little motivation. For me, that’s meant going from not being able to do so much a single full push up to Athlete of the Month!
If you have been following our program the last month you will notice an increase in running. That’s for several reasons. 1st of all the weather is absolutely wonderful here in Scottsdale and pounding the pavement goes back to two a days training for football. 2nd we are training for www.madmudrun.com this Saturday at MacDonald’s Ranch 26540 N Scottsdale Rd | Scottsdale, AZ 85255. This race is a 4 mile obstacle course through the mud, dirt and desert. Come show your support at 8am this Saturday. Good luck Mandy, Kate, Evan, Erica and Luke. We will be wearing Camo and Black CrossFit and “We are in it to win it”
