The CrossFit Games are the ultimate test of fitness. It’s a grueling multi-day competition in which the world’s fittest athletes compete in a variety of workouts. What are the workouts? Each year they change, and the details of them are not announced until a couple days before the event. This means that all year long, the athletes are training for a competition whose format is almost completely a mystery.

SICFIT Scottsdale Athlete of the Month December 2014

“I can guarantee you most of my 50 year old friends can’t say they swing from monkey bars or can do a kipping pull up.”  says Decembers Athlete of the Month at SICFIT Scottsdale Judy Leinweber. A true veteran in the FUNctional FITness world. Judy has improved her overall health and FITness since joining in 2011. Long time family friend and even more seasoned student Deric Andre is the reason why Judy joined SICFIT. “After much hounding I finally decided to take my first class at North-site park, I still remember Coach Jenn D. who is so motivating and inspiring in my head telling me I can do it and not to stop.” When you see Judy in class next week, Give her and Deric a high “5” and say thank you for leading the way! Check out Judy’s interview on how she got started below.

How has training at SICFIT improved your overall health and FITness?

I had been working out with a personal trainer for almost five years prior to joining and never felt the way I do today about fitness. SICFIT has allowed me to progress from life, fitness and now sport. I am challenged emotionally, physically and mentally every class I take at SICFIT Scottsdale.  I truly believe it’s made me a stronger person in all three.

What lessons have you learned about diet and exercise that you can teach your  family?

I honestly am convinced that incorporating fitness and exercise into your daily routine makes a huge difference in a persons life. You don’t have to be a size two or focus on what you weigh, just be happy and healthy. I hope that I have influenced that in my daughter Morgan. Quit the awesome kid if I don’t say so myself!

What made you decide to enter the SICEST of the SOUTHWEST FITness race?

I turn 50 in April of next year. I wanted to do something that I had never done before and step completely out of my box. For me that was the Sicest of the Southwest III. It was a great experience with great people!

SICFIT Scottsdale is the place for me! Thank you to everyone for making it such a family, friendly environment!

The buzz of SICEST of the Southwest III continues to radiate through the veins of SICFIT Scottsdale, and likely will continue to do so for months to come. Though, admittedly, we are a bit biased, but we truly believe that this was the most epic competitive fitness event of the year. If you were not able to get in on the action, or just feel the itch to relive some of the magic, here are some phenomenal videos by Paul Deuchar that will transport you right back to SSWIII!

SICEST of the SOUTHWEST III was the greatest sporting event in the history of Scottsdale.

Dear Sponsors, Volunteers and Judges at the SICEST of the SOUTHWEST III.

Along with my wife Najla, our team and the entire SICFIT crew we would like to take a moment to personally thank you for your participation in the SICEST of the SOUTHWST III. For the first time ever we brought this event outdoors, away from the convention center and into the streets on the blacktop. This is where my first experience with the sport began and where I believe it truthfully belongs. It was a beautiful 70 degrees, slight overcast with short bursts of sunlight breaking through the clouds on what we Arizonans call winter.

With over 250 competitors and somewhere around 700 spectators the back lot at SICFIT Scottsdale was slamming, the D.J was spinning and the athletes were flying. It far surpassed any expectations that we imagined leading up to the event.
As you know putting on a competition of any size is a huge process that takes meticulous hours of organizing, preparation and follow through. We did this with your help and the hard work of our volunteers and judges. We hope that you enjoyed the SICEST as much as we did and that you plan on coming back again next year. If you would like to learn more about the SICEST of the Pacific West II in Maui next summer email me directly at Luke@SICFIT.com.
Thank you and have a happy, healthy, holiday from our family to yours cheers to 2015!
Luke Kayyem
