The Industrial Athlete Championship Series is designed to test your heart, strength, endurance and overall mental toughness – it is NOT a hyper-technical CrossFit only event!  We welcome all athletes who want to test themselves against the unknown.  We will provide events with challenges you have never prepared for.  There is no perfect way to train for this as you won’t know what the competition involves until at least 4 days prior to the event.  For more information on the rules and the event itself, please visit the About Us and Event pages.

This is your chance to veer outside of your comfort zone and in the process, help bring some comfort to a little girl who needs our help. Please take the time to watch Savannah’s Story and understand the money raised during this event will go directly to the purchase of a service dog for her and her family.  A little sweat and discomfort – all for a good cause.

Thank you,

At 16 months old, Savannah was diagnosed with Juvenile (type 1) Diabetes. On diagnosis, Savannah’s blood sugar was 1319! Just to let you know how grave her situation was, blood sugars over 800 are enough to take the life of a grown man. BUT, Savannah is our miracle child; she is a survivor. Over the last year, Savannah has tolerated 200 shots and 3000 finger pricks. In the eight years since her diagnosis Savannah has endured over 23,000 finger pricks and 7,500 insulin injections. Savannah is an Angel and takes 99% of these shots without even shedding a tear! She is one tough cookie that continues to bless our family with her strength and resilience!

We are trying to get a service dog for Savannah to help alert us before Savannah’s blood sugars get dangerously low. It’s our goal to avoid the heart and kidney disease, blindness, amputation, and early death that is a reality for many people with juvenile diabetes.

Our family is deeply grateful to you for helping us reach our goal of raising $7,000 to cover the cost of a service dog.

Good luck to future Navyman Logan Smith as he departs CrossFit Scottsdale and begans boot camp in the U.S Navy

When I walked through the doors of CrossFit Scottsdale in July of 2011, I didn’t have the slightest idea of what I was getting myself into. If you would have asked me before that day if I was ready go into the military, I would have said yes with one hundred percent confidence. It wasn’t until I came in and met Coach Luke and Coach JennD that I got a very rude awakening, not only were my physical standards below average, not being able to complete more than one pull up, but my mental strength and confidence were nowhere near the place needed to get a chance to prove myself in the Navy’s Special Warfare.
Since that day, Luke has taken me under his wing, and has been one of the largest impacts in my life. Allowing me to become a Jedi at CrossFit Scottsdale which has taught me how to think for myself and how to do things I never would have done on my own. Anything from cutting carpet for an office, to driving to Texas and loading up a truck with so much stuff that it seemed impossible, to learning how to surf. I have learned to adapt to any situation that will ever be thrown my way, I have become Level 1 CrossFit certified Coach and have learned how to take charge of 20+ people at once. Now I can honestly say that I am as ready as I could ever be to enter the most intense training of my life. I am a better person 18 months later in every sense, I am more confident, stronger, faster, closer with my family, and I never would have thought that coming in to a gym that I found on the internet would have changed my life so much. This entire experience has been a blessing and I am beyond thankful for the people I now have in my life.
