Athlete of the month

“Congratulations Ellen on becoming October’s Athlete of the month.”

 

I have never been recognized for doing anything athletic so being Athlete of the Month at CrossFit was particularly surprising and exciting.  Being a massage therapist, it is important for me to be strong.  I tell my husband that exercise is not an option for me but part of my job.  I have tried several different exercise programs throughout the years but Cross Fit with Luke has been the most effective in the least amount of time.  After just a few weeks, I’ve already started to feel stronger and my endurance has gotten better as well.  My clothes are also starting to fit better (always a plus!).  I really like the small class size which makes it possible for Luke to keep after me about proper form, even when it’s difficult.  He is able to modify any workout to a person’s fitness level and makes you feel good about what you are able to do while working toward harder goals. The other students in class are also very encouraging and supportive which makes things a little nicer if not competitive.  I would highly recommend CrossFit to anyone serious about getting into or maintaining good fitness.

Change your workout…

Not everyone feels great all the time. Some days you just don’t have it. Others your full off energy. Everything from the weather to the Mexican food you had too much of the night before can cause your performance to suffer. Sleep, stress and nutrition are the three most important factors of mood and energy levels. If you just don’t feel like working out today. Try a long walk or stretch for an hour. Don’t give in completely and not workout. “Just change” your program to suit you and how your feeling.

Athlete of the Month

I would like to congratulate Kristin Sido, Soon to be Kristin Johnson for becoming CrossFit Scottsdale’s 1st athlete of the month for September. Kristin has been working hard every day since she started in July. Kristin is getting married on October 11th and we wish her all the best.

“You look fabulous”

 
I decided to look into CrossFit because I was in a rut at my local gym and was looking for a change.  I had lost motivation because I was so bored with my daily workout routines and I really needed to get in shape for my upcoming wedding.  A friend told me about CrossFit, so I thought I’d give it a try.  My friend, Katie, and I took a class with Luke at CrossFit Scottsdale and we both LOVED it!  It was so different from my tedious routines at the gym, and it actually made me look forward to exercising.  I have been taking CrossFit classes with Luke for 4 months now, and we haven’t repeated a workout once.  The workout of the day (WOD) is always different, which makes keeps it fun and exciting.  The workouts are intense, but fun and rewarding.  Luke is an awesome coach and does a great job of encouraging us and inspiring us to continually better ourselves.
