Luke Kayyem of CrossFit Scottsdale "Courage Games" 4th place
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.
Team CrossFit Scottsdale will be at CrossFit Fury for the fourth annual Furious Fundraiser Saturday at 0800. All proceeds will benefit fallen Phoenix police officer Travis Murphy. If you would like to come support your fellow CrossFit Scottsdale students we would love to have you. Competitors, the truck is leaving the gym at 0600. Please be ready to go in your classic black CrossFit Scottsdale gear. Make sure you bring everything you may need– jump rope, tape, shoes, and coolers loaded. GET READY TEAM! Time to have Nothing but a Good Time!
CrossFit Scottsdale will be participating in the national event “Fight Gone Bad”. In the first four editions of the Fight Gone Bad fundraising event, CrossFit Affiliates have raised more than $2 million. In 2009, over 5,200 people participated, raising more than $1.1 million for the charities. In 2010, over $1.5 million was raised! Fight Gone Bad 5 took place at more than 500 CrossFit affiliates throughout the world and benefitted Wounded Warrior Project, LIVESTRONG, and CrossFit Foundation.
We invite you all to come out and give it your all, push yourselves in tribute and for a great cause by participating in the 6th Annual “Fight Gone Bad” at CrossFit Scottsdale. We will be holding the event as a free challenge for our students in true CrossFit Scottsdale form. There will be advanced, intermediate and beginner sign-up sheets in the gym. To donate visit www.fgb6.com. Right now you can do something about it. You can make a difference.

It’s that time of year again! Get ready for the next CrossFit Scottsdale Challenge: Helen with a slight twist because it’s summer in Arizona! Helen is a classic CrossFit Girls workout that is 3 rounds of a 400m run, 21 kettlebell swings, and 12 pull-ups. So instead of melting outdoors, we will be rowing instead in cool, air-conditioned comfort!
