Open Workout 13.4

Programming for Thursday, March 28, 2013


As we enter week four of this global fitness fitness competition, let us resolve ourselves to think only of the movement at hand.  We will think not of the time on the clock, the rep or round our neighbor has accomplished, or of the fatigue we feel in our bodies.  For these thoughts are but mere impediments to our moving on to that next rep, and filling that seven minutes with our whole self — both mentally and physically.  There may be hundreds of thousands of people performing this same workout, but the real competition happens inside.  Lets bring it!

Come experience how the heat of competition can push your performance to the next level, and finish off the Open Workouts with a personal best!



Fitness is a State of Mind


Programming For Wednesday, March 27, 2013

Fitness is  more than sweat, muscle, and speed.  It is more than weights, rowers, and rigs.  Fitness is also more than your coach, your partner, and even your body.  Fitness is rather a state of mind — focused towards excellence, and resilient throughout any challenge.

How fit are you?

Setting and Meeting Goals One Snatch at a Time


Programming for Tuesday, March 26, 2013

The goals we set and gains we make in our physical fitness translate directly into our personal lives.  Fitness requires dedication, integrity, self-acceptance, and openness to support and direction.  While we train our physical bodies at the gym, we are also training our psychologies to apply these qualities in other areas of our lives that are just as important to us.

CrossFit Scottsdale wants to help you take your physical-to-personal transformations to the next level by inviting you to our Goal Setting Seminar, next Thursday from 7 to 8:30pm.  At this seminar, business coach and President of EVŌC, Troy Henson, will show us that we always, and without fail have the capacity to meet out goals — the only variables that gets in our way is lack of focus and inconsistency in working towards what we truly want.  Troy will coach us through how to set goals that will facilitate our focus and inspire our consistency so that our goals become our reality!

As for today… CrossFit Scottsdale decrees that all of our athletes’ goal is to complete 30 snatches for time.  Let’s stay focused and be consistent!
