Fitness Therapy


Programming for Friday, July 5, 2013

As members of CrossFit Scottsdale, we get to experience the power of achieving something that at first seems impossible on a daily basis.  Can you imagine what this does to a person’s outlook, to their confidence, to even their self-image after a few months of consistent training? How about after a few years? At CrossFit Scottsdale we train more than just physical bodies. We train the whole person to move beyond limitation, doubt, fear, and weakness, and to get used to success, determination, and strength.  See ya at the gym today for a little fitness therapy!

Half Way into 2013, Are You on Track with Your Goals?


Programming for Monday, July 1, 2013

As we reach the half way mark into year 2013 I invite all of you to take a step back and appreciate the progress you have made on your journey to health, fitness, and overall wellbeing. Perhaps some of us began this self-project as a New Years resolution. Kudos to you for sticking with it — now give your self a pat on the back for how far you have come.  Maybe others of us still have fitness goals and accomplishments we have not met yet. Well, this year has many more training days to come to be sure, but lets also recognize how every day that we show up is a day of progress, even if it doesn’t always feel like one. Regardless of what mile-marker you are at on this highway of health, the half-way mark of 2013 is a great time to take mental note of your progress, and set your sights on where you want to be at the year’s end.  Let’s get to work people!

Lift Heavy Saturday!


Programming for Saturday, June 28, 2013

Time to load up the barbells and throw some heavy weight around my friends! Moving any load from a stationary position on the ground all the way up to your shoulder is no easy task.  But at CrossFit Scottsdale we are trained to maximize our body’s internal power to move explosively, efficiently, and effectively.  Whether you are new to Olympic Lifting, or are a seasoned veteran, there is always a new cue to hone in on and a bad habit to break.  Let’s get to it folks!  It’s Lift Heavy Saturday!
