CrossFit Games Open – Friday Night Lights: Week 3

Friday Night Lights: 2011 CrossFit Games Qualifiers

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.

On the 4th day of Christmas CrossFit Scottsdale gave to me…

500 row +300 run (big lap)
4th day of Christmas
10 burpees + 25 situps +50 oh squats + 25 push ups

Spend the next 15 minutes working on all 4 movements

Wall ball + Toes to bar (if you cannot do a strict pull up scale to knees to bows on your back)



















Our two newest female RX Firebreathers Elizabeth and Michelle. Both competed for the
1st time on Team CrossFit Scottsdale this weekend at 7,000 ft elevation at the 3rd annual
Arizona Affiliate’s in Flagstaff. Congratulations to all 9 athletes who made the drive through
4 feet of snow and sub 10 degree temperatures. “Get comfortable with uncomfortable”

“Proud to be”

I am proud to be so many things on this amazing 18th day of November in 2012. For our 4th year in a row we participated in the CrossFit Fury Fundraiser. An annual charity event and “Old School” fitness throw down in the parking lots and streets of Goodyear. I am proud to be affiliated with the owner and head Coach Peter Egyed and his entire crew. You sir have “raised your game” again and I look forward to many more showdowns in your gym.
I’m proud to have watched 1st time competitors Angelica and Joe go at it with some extremely challenging movements and skills they have never attempted like sledge hammer into plates and rope climbs. Since joining our competition team 6 months ago they have reached a new level of fitness and we are saddened to say goodbye to Angelica who is moving to the “OC” to further her career. “Thank you for your hard work and dedication”.
I am proud to see Riff and Nate push each other forward and progress each week. Klubo for unlocking more and more potential and Nicole Miller for showing up right when we needed you. Welcome to Team CrossFit Scottsdale! I am so proud to have been Jenn Deez partner and witnessed her P.R (personal record) after P.R when the pressures high and the weights ( #115 thruster 2x) are even higher. I am proud to be part of Team over “34” and would go to battle with you “anytime, anyplace”.
I am proud to bleed “black and yellow” Team CrossFit Scottsdale pride was everywhere and the SICFIT swag was seen through the crowds of CrossFit Affiliates from all over the state. I am so so proud of Team Mel/Meghan for winning the women’s division and for Mel winning 2 competitions in a row. For a full time Engineer and part, sometimes no time CrossFitter you are Golden!!!

I am the most proud to be father of a 6.1 year old FREAK and PHENOM Kanon Kayyem who called his dads bluff of attempting to do 100 burpees in 10 minutes for $100. I know, I know bribery should not be rewarded but this was the afternoon entertainment and he really wanted to prove to me and the team he could do it. He actually completes 121 reps and received a $1 over per burpee. “If you watch the entire video he gets called for about 10 “NO REPS” for not touching his chest to the deck and still fights hard to the finish. I am proud to be a FIT family and know that my kids are growing up, attending these amazing fitness competitions surrounded by amazing people.
I am proud to be your fearless leader and wish that all of our students at CrossFit Scottsdale

A Tradition of Excellence… CrossFit Scottsdale Competition Team

If you were one of the athletes who came to our competitors meeting last night, THANK YOU for showing up and supporting the team with your presence! We had the pleasure of starting our team meeting with advice from two of CrossFit’s most decorated athletes and CrossFit Games veterans Chris Spealer and Zach Forrest. For those of you who couldn’t make it, we’ve summarized the plan for our Team for the 2012-2013 season below. Hope you decide to become a part of it. See a Coach or sign up at the gym to get in on the action.

1. Our Team this year will include ANYONE motivated to compete and that want’s to take part.

2. Team’s Objective: To create an environment that fosters excellence, virtuosity, and teamwork in a way that inspires elite fitness, sets goals and fosters community. (oh yeah… and to have fun!)

3. Being on the team means you are committed to taking your training to the next level, and to participating with our community that is committed to the same. One time a month team CFS “outing” (meeting on location for a workout, participating in local athletic events, specific skill training as a Team, small group/partner training).

4. Two considerations in being on the team: 1. Being responsible for and respectful of your own training, 2. Being responsible and respectful to your teammates.

5. Competitor team training options are: M,W,F 4:30pm (Games Class), Tues-Thurs 11am-2pm (Lab hours), Sat afternoon TBD. This is  separate programming and in addition to your regular scheduled CrossFit classes.

6. The team’s Coaches include – Luke Kayyem, Najla Kayyem, Mel Einbinder,  Josh Wagner

7. Three Phases of the Year
a) Phase 1 – Aug – Dec: This will be the time for you to determine your goats, design your training plan, and get together with your team for small group training, and fun events. You will be responsible for determining your PRs and best efforts in a list of skills and workouts. Assignment by our Team Coaches into small training groups/partnerships based on review of your training ‘goats and training schedules.

Our first official meeting and training session will be a two day fitness assessment. We will be testing on September  8th from 12-3pm and September 9th from 9am-12pm.

This phase will culminate with The SICest of the SOUTHWEST Competition on October 20th at the Phoenix Convention Center. Please plan to participate on a 4 man team or to compete as an individual. Register at

b) Phase 2 – Jan – March: The 12-14 athletes that we choose (based on workout numbers, PRs, and performance/rankings at  local competitions) will become our CF Games Open Team. These athletes will be meeting for workouts outside of normal classes and will be getting much more hands-on coaching.  The ENTIRE team will continue to meet for events and training around the Phoenix area. This phase culminates in ALL team members participating in the CrossFit Games Open.

c) Phase 3 – March -July: When we qualify a team (or two) for Regionals, we will narrow the talent pool down to 8 – and these athletes will train rigorously for Regionals with the goal to make it to the CrossFit Games in July. The rest of the team continues to meet for events and training and supports the 8 who have been chosen to represent CFS.

8. We reserve the right to be wrong… in other words, this is the plan based on what we know now. As the Team develops over the year, we reserve the right to modify, change, or adjust things. In other, other words, “Lets be flexible, people!” Look for some surprises thrown in there as well!

9. If you think you’re someone that is excited, enthusiastic, committed, responsible, and wants to take their training to the next level, with an awesome group of committed athletes, we’d love to have you. The cost is $100 for the year… and with that you’ll get one Team Jersey,  2 days of assessment and testing scheduled for September 8-9 and competitor programming.
