Whole Life Challenge Registration!


You are about to embark on an incredible journey.

The Whole Life Challenge is an opportunity to take action on things in your life a little (or a lot) differently than you ever have before. You’ll be challenged to make daily choices in the food you eat and the way you spend your time outside of the gym that will have a tremendous impact on your health and fitness.

The Challenge isn’t about trying to compete, win, or get it perfect. It’s a practice in making small, personal, incremental changes in your daily life that stick… for days, weeks, months and years to come. You will watch the small actions you learn to take in the WLC turn into long-term habits, and result in your life actually being different.

The Challenge starts on September 7th and ends on November 1st

For the entry fee you’ll get access to the website where you’ll log your Whole Life Challenge score each day, get coaching, and interact with the CrossFit Scottsdale community and the more then ten thousand of other people playing around the world. A mere $49 dollars will get you entered (don’t forget our team code for $5 off  WLCRYGYYdJtK). If you want to accelerate your results take advantage of the TACTICAL package for $89 and attend the Advanced Nutrition Tactics seminar on becoming a FAT burning machine.

And it’s not just about workouts and diet. It’s a fun, social, community game that will have you interacting with the people that matter most to you around building a consistently healthy lifestyle for everyone that goes beyond the 8 weeks of the game.

And like many of our challenges, there will be great prizes at the end, like up to $200 CASH!!

Heart Pumping Yoga

Do you think yoga is just stretching and sitting around singing songs??

Come try yoga at CrossFit Scottsdale and you will see that yoga is in fact a workout. It challenges your body in a very different way than CrossFit. It is an Ashtanga based vinyasa flow class that is specifically designed to build heat and keep your heart rate up with a series of demanding standing poses, twists and inversions held for long periods. The breathing used is deep inhaling and exhaling through the nose to keep the body’s internal heat up. Using this breath fluidly and calmly through the nose can improve your cardiovascular health. You can burn a lot of calories during a class and feel refreshed, detoxified and cleansed after your practice.

Yoga classes at CrossFit Scottsdale are every Tuesday evening at 7pm and Wednesday morning at 9:30am.

The Link Between Health and Sleep


Programming for Friday, August 2, 2013

Think being fit is all about nutrition and exercise? Think again! Consistently getting enough sleep is just as important to your health as what you do in the gym, and what you put in your body.  Lack of sleep has not only been linked impaired reaction times, concentration, and problem solving abilities, but too few Zs is also related to risk of heart attack, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, and psychological dysfunction. Too many sleepless nights might even make it harder for you to stick to your nutrition plan, as the peptides in the brain that stimulate and control hunger and satiety become irregular with poor sleep. So do yourself a favor this weekend and catch up on your rest if you have been neglecting yourself. Then, resolve to make sleep a priority throughout the week, even when you are busy!
