Let the 12 Days of Christmas Begin!


Welcome to day one of the SICFIT Scottsdale 12 days of Christmas! Just like in the classic song, each day brings new gifts for us to enjoy — but the SICFIT version doesn’t include any turtle doves or pear trees. No, the gifts in our version of the 12 days of Christmas are gifts of fitness! Each day we will add a new physical task to complete, in addition to all the tasks dished out previously. On the 12th day, Christmas, we will all meet at Northsight Park at noon to complete the workout in its entirety! What better way to celebrate the holiday of giving than by giving yourself, your family, and your friends the gift of fitness! All are welcome and the event is free!

Living Life to the SICEST


Strength in Conditioning for Thursday, December 12, 2013

What motivates you to show up at SICFIT Scottsdale day after day? Is it for the pure joy of getting your butt kicked? Maybe it gives you a fresh boost of confidence and an adrenaline rush? Perhaps getting your daily dose of strength in conditioning empowers you to live your life to the fullest?

SICFITTER since 2008, 70 year old Bill Gold would likely agree with the last statement. He recently shared his story about how SICFIT has helped him get the most out of the things he enjoys, like on his recent hunting excursion.

“I enjoyed a great hunt in the Yukon this October.  I hunted for moose, caribou, and wolf.  I went with a friend of mine, Wayne Greene. At Watson Lake, we flew in a float plane 45 minutes into the wilderness and landed on a lake called Meeting Lake.  We met our guides and our horses there.  The next morning we packed up the horses and rode 21 miles from the lake and into the wilderness and arrived at a small Trapper’s Cabin.  Each morning we were up at 5am and saddled up after breakfast and rode out to hunt.  We didn’t return until after dark. The hunt was one of the best I have ever been on and thanks to SICFIT  I was able to get along and enjoy it. Thank you.”

Keep living your passions and let SICFIT help you make the most of them!

Lunges, Lunges, and more Lunges!


Strength in Conditioning for Wednesday, December 11, 2013

Anything for just 400 meters can’t be too bad… right? Wrong! Not for today’s WOW anyway. And don’t be fooled by the the single task on the agenda. Sometimes the simpler the workout seems on paper, the more trying it is in practice. Make the commitment to yourself before you take even your first lunge to keep a positive outlook no matter how taxing each step becomes. In this workout especially, the only way to finish is by taking one step at a time.

Paleo Pickings from SICFIT Scottsdale


Strength in Conditioning for Tuesday, December 10, 2013

The paleo diet is about more than simply avoiding certain kinds of foods. It is about knowing where the food we decide to eat comes from, and eating in a way that not only sustains our body but sustains the earth as well. Sometimes this task is easier said than done, as our modern day super markets do not always make known the source of their fare. When in doubt, takepart.com (the outreach website associated with the documentary, Food Inc) suggests reaching for a cut of lamb. The article states that lamb is more likely to have been treated humanely than poultry or beef and to have been raised using sustainable farming practices. Of course, our best option is still the one that is most informed and closest to home, so get to know your local farmers and never have to face market mystery meat again!

A Beautiful Day to Lift Heavy


Strength in Conditioning for Monday, December 9, 2013

During an Olympic Lift, it can seem like all time stands still. We take a breath and mentally prepare as we step our feet beneath the bar. As we tighten our core in preparation we commit ourselves to the effort required for success. Then as we reach down and grip the barbell all becomes silent. Our minds are intently focused on the the impending dance between position, power, and timing — all which must be executed with the most refined precision. In the very next instant we find the bar resting in its final destination above our head, as if by zero and great effort of our own all at the same time.

Team SICFITness!


Strength in Conditioning for Saturday, December 7, 2013

There is power in numbers in just about every activity. This is especially true when it comes to our workout. We tend to dig a littler deeper, hold on for that extra rep, and maintain a more positive attitude when we are held accountable by a teammate. Let’s allow our teammate to inspire our highest potential today, and let’s do the same for them!
