The Power of Team Workouts


Programming for Saturday, May 18, 2013

There is something strangely powerful about a team workout.  At CrossFit Scottsdale, we are well-acquainted with struggling through a workout, only to find the strength to finish within the cheers an encouragement from our coaches and peers.  But in a team workout, a whole new element is added when others are relying on us to give it our all. In a team workout, we know that the fate of the team rests on our shoulders, and it is up to us to rise to the occasion for the good of all.  In such a scenario we are able to dig to new depths and achieve feats greater than we ever thought possible, all thanks to the people working out along side of us.

Make Saturday Morning Delicious! Paleo Pancake Recipe.

Are you hungry? Do Saturday mornings mean a big breakfast for you and your family? If the answer is yes, (and even if its no) check out this YUMMY Paleo Pancake recipe!


6 eggs (room temperature)4 tbsp organic raw honey
2 tsp organic vanilla extract
1/2 c unsweetened vanilla almond milk*
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp Himalayan pink sea salt
2/3 c organic coconut flour
1/3 c tapioca flour
1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp cinnamon
1/3 c water
coconut oil/ghee/grass-fed butter
optional: 1/3 c chopped nuts of choice

*substitute regular almond milk or coconut milk


Beat eggs in a large mixing bowl. Add the remaining wet ingredients {except the water}. In a separate bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. Slowly stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Once mixed, let the batter sit for about 10 minutes to allow the coconut flour time to thicken. Add the water to the batter and stir to incorporate. Depending on desired consistency and how long you let the batter sit, you may want to add a little more water than called for in the recipe. Add 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil, ghee or grass-fed butter to a pan and place over medium heat. Using a large spoon, add batter to the pan to form pancakes. Pan-fry until each side is golden brown {3 to 5 minutes each side}. Repeat with remaining batter, adding more coconut oil/ghee/grass-fed butter to the pan for each batch. Serves 5.

Topping Suggestions:

Chopped berries, nuts, nut butter, raw honey, molasses, maple syrup

{Special Choice}:

Empty bag of frozen berries into a small saucepan and place over medium-low heat while cooking pancakes. Use a spoon to break up the fruit occasionally as it heats and melts. Eventually, this will make a warm, chunky fruit “sauce”. Spread almond butter onto the pancakes and top with a large spoonful of warm fruit sauce to make one heck of a peanut-butter-and-jelly pancake-wich. Mmmm.
