Level 2 Test “Orange Band”

Do you have your Level 1 White Band? Are you ready to step up and challenge yourself even more? If so, come out for your Level 2 Orange Band this Thursday, May 30th at 7pm. Even if you aren’t ready for the Orange Band, come out to CrossFit Scottsdale and cheer on your friends!

Level II Test Flyer

At CrossFit Scottsdale we advocate the importance of quality over quantity. For example, the quality of your reps vs. the number of reps completed; the quality of your WOD (Workout of the Day) vs. the top time on the white board; a few quality workouts during the week vs. a half hearted WOD everyday of the week.

The reason we teach quality is because everything that we do in CrossFit as well as in life is built upon foundation. We must be proficient in one area before moving on to the next. This is where the quality of our reps will help determine the quality of our WOD which in turn determines the quality of our improvements.

Who’s Ready For The Orange Band?
