LIFE, FITness, Sport


Programming for Wednesday, June 19, 2013

The road to health, fitness, and happiness is unique for everyone. It starts and ends in different places, and has various places to visit along the way.  Maybe some of us are just returning to the gym after a long hiatus or are just beginning to work out for the first time to change our LIFE for the better. Others of us may have been active for a while but are still looking to get stronger, slim down, and just improve our FITness as a whole. Others may eat, breathe, sleep, and bleed the SPORT of fitness, and would die to score.  No place on this road to optimal well-being is any better or worse than the next.  They are simply different, but equally honorable and commendable.

Jump Rope-A-Thon Practice


Programming for Tuesday, June 18, 2013

Its time to brush up on our jump roping skills so we can be well prepared for the 5th Annual CrossFit Scottsdale Jump Rope-a-Thon!  In today’s warmup we will see how many jumps you can do in 10 minutes.  But on the 25th and 26th of this month we will put you to the test for 45 minutes!

Can You Touch Your Toes?


Stretching is not just something that our muscles need after a workout.  Rather, stretching is something that is required to allow our muscles to reach their full potential.  Do ever feel tension getting your elbows up in the front rack position?  What about those shoulders in overhead positions?  And those hips… every athlete could always use some more mobility in their hips! For these exact reasons, CrossFit Scottsdale is is hosting the Flexibility RX Workshop,today at 1:00pm with Kevin Kula.  If you want to see incredible gains in your workouts, take advantage of this opportunity and join us for a workshop that help you put your old PRs to shame!

AMRAP = Fitness Karma


Programming for Friday, June 14, 2013

The beauty of AMRAP (As Many Rounds As Possible) workouts is that they truly capture the essence of the saying, “you get out what you put in.”  Call it fitness karma, if you will.  The energy you put forth during today’s workout is the only thing that is going increase the number you get to write on the board when you are finished.  It is the only thing that is going to progress you further down your road to health and wellness.  And it is most definitely the only thing that will give you that feeling of satisfaction as you pack up your things and walk out of the gym doors.  You can do anything for seven minutes.  Do yourself a favor and make those seven minutes the most grueling yet rewarding seven minutes of your life!

Kayyem Signature Series Part 2: Double Unders

Ah, the elusive double under. That one skill that seems to pop up in workouts several times a week. It’s the skill of getting that jump rope to go under your feet twice in one jump. You hear your coaches say things like “faster wrists”, “jump higher”, “no donkey kicks”…but what does that all really mean? If you are still working on stringing your double unders together, making them smoother or just finally getting your first one, then this clinic is for YOU!

Join coach Luke Kayyem for part 2 of his Kayyem Signature Series on June 20th at 7pm as he goes over the double under. Become a master of the jump rope and get comfortable in your skill. This is a FREE skill clinic! If you are planning on attending, please sign up at the gym.

Ready, Set, Rest!


Programming for Thursday, June 13, 2013


Workouts with rapid work-rest ratios challenge us to put forth maximum effort because we know that our time is limited to rack up our reps.  The much needed and well deserved rest between each bout of high speed work is just enough time to recover so our output remains consistent throughout the working.  In today’s conditioning segment, do not just challenge yourself to work as hard as you can, but challenge yourself to rest as hard as you can as well!
