  • In the Beginning...
    In the Beginning...

    Two years ago today I was working at another gym barely able to contain myself because I knew what was coming up. We weren’t sure if we would get the keys before the weekend and when Friday came and we got the call I was thrilled. I had seen the space only once before and could not wait to get inside and get to work. I left the gym in Scottsdale early and drove over with Mike to meet up with Tiff and Jenn to check out where we would be spending our foreseeable future. We pulled up around back, unlocked the back door, and in the middle of the place where you have all done so many WODs and shed so much blood sweat and tears was the raw garage space that we now call WildFire CrossFit. We knew there was a lot of work to be done and we were ready to get started.

    We grabbed brooms and dustpans, started unloading supplies and equipment, and got to work. We had equipment (bars, plates, boxes, med balls) but knew it would be a couple weeks before we got the flooring in and the pull up rig up. As we cleaned and unloaded equipment I called Mike Gillis from True Strength to find a time to have him come over to give us an estimate for the pull up rig as Mike called to see when we could get the gym flooring in. It was the first of many late nights getting prepared for the future.

    The next morning things could not have come together more smoothly. Mike pulled in with a truckload of stall mats that he was able get from a horse supply company and we started laying out the gym floor. Mike from True Strength showed up with pieces of a rig to give us an idea of where we would want it and what style of rig we would want. After deciding that the rustic unpainted look fit the space perfectly we started bolting down the rig that Mike brought with him. Instead of two weeks in we had our pull up rig, a gym floor, and all the equipment we needed after the first day.

    With Labor Day Monday we put out the invitation to do the first every workout at WildFire CrossFit and worked through the weekend to get the place ready. On Monday morning we welcomed in 18 of our closest friends and family including Pam & Kelly Foley, James & Amy Olson, and Kevin & Kelly Groff who are still pillars of the WildFire Community today. Since we didn’t have the white boards up yet we wrote the workout on Addie’s easel said 3-2-1-GO! …and the rest is history!

    This Monday will mark the 2nd anniversary of the first ever workout at WildFire CrossFit. We will have a shortened schedule for the Labor Day holiday and classes will be at 7am, 9am, and 12 pm. This will be a great opportunity to invite friends and family to experience WildFire CrossFit and it will be a workout you do not want to miss so join us to celebrate where we have come from and where this amazing Community is today!

    Online Resources and Tuesday Workout

    By: Coach Chris Stasik

    Social media and CrossFit go hand-in-hand.  It is proof of how important and powerful the community aspect of CrossFit is.  One could reasonably wonder if CrossFit would be as successful as it is without social media.  Many of us follow the WildFire website, are active on Facebook, and share our CrossFit pictures and stories with others who are like-minded.  One of my favorite things about social media is reading all the interesting articles people post about CrossFit-related topics.  Based on my own favorite sites and after talking with coaches, here are some of our favorite online resources all in one place. 

    A good place to start is www.crossfit.com.  Follow the link for The CrossFit Journal.  I highly recommend a subscription.  Other good sites, in no particular order:

    General Information about CrossFit and Related Topics:

    http://breakingmuscle.com/

    http://www.boxlifemagazine.com/

    http://www.tabatatimes.com/

    http://rockonefitness.com/  (Full Disclosure: My brother-in-law runs this site, but it is informative and worth visiting)

    Olympic Lifting:

                   http://www.catalystathletics.com/

    Other:

    http://gymnasticswod.com/

    http://www.endurancewod.com/blog

    http://mentalitywod.com/

    The above is an abbreviated list.  There are loads of great sites worthy of your time.  Many of the coaches follow a variety of sites not listed here, so hit them up if you are curious.  Don’t forget to check www.youtube.com if you are looking for an instructional video.  Some of the above sites have an active Facebook presence and it is worthwhile to “follow” them.  I also recommend following www.hookgrip.com on Facebook because they post some great stuff, including a lot of slow-motion Olympic lifts (my favorite!)

  • The Squat is the Foundation...Do it RIGHT!
    The Squat is the Foundation...Do it RIGHT!

    The squat is the foundation of CrossFit and when it come to fitness one of the most important exercises you can do. IF you think about it, we squat many times a day all throughout the day. Every time we sit down and stand up we are performing some version of the squat. When it is applied to fitness, building and strengthening our legs is the foundation of building the rest of the body. If the weight cannot be supported by our legs, it cannot be supported by another area.

    When it comes to strength training there are many different kinds of squats we work through. While the air squat is a great physical activity and something that can develop strength, the back squat, front squat, and overhead squat are exercises that are essential to really develop overall strength. Not to mention, by adding weight to this simple exercise, we will also build strength in our core, upper body, and back.

    When performing these lifts it is important to apply the proper form and technique and hit on the points of performance that make whichever squat you are doing safe, efficient, and effective. From the starting position, the first step is to push the hips back and down so that the weight is centered in our heels. Second, we coach our athletes to get their hip crease below the knee which will take pressure off the knee and strengthen the correct muscles for that exercise. Finally, we stand back up we want to lock out the hips so that our heel, knee, hip, and shoulder are in one straight line. This is referred to as an open hip. In addition to the squat portion we want to be sure that we are keeping our chest up for the front, back, and overhead squats and our elbows up for the front squat.

    When you are performing the squat in the workout, time is usually a factor. As coaches, we always want our athletes to get the best time or result possible on their workout WITHOUT sacrificing the proper form, technique, and the points of performance on ANY exercise. While in competitions there is typically a judge to determine that you are performing the exercise correctly. In the gym we do our best to insure our athletes are completing all of their reps correctly, however, we can’t watch everyone all of the time. This is especially important for the squat. We would rather you take longer or get fewer reps and hit the correct points of performance in each of the exercises we do. In the squat this means getting the hip crease below the knee and standing up to a full locked out position EVERY time no matter what. This will make you better, more efficient, and will help you build the muscles correctly.

    You CAN and SHOULD spend time working on your squat. While the squat seems like one of the simpler exercises we do, we can all improve our form by working on our mobility and flexibility. Take the time to get better by doing things such as foam rolling, using the lacrosse ball, and sitting in the bottom of the squat against the wall with your back flat and feet flat OR holding onto a stationary object and pull your hips towards your hands while keeping your back up straight. These are just a few of many things you can do to improve your squat.

    If you feel you need help on your squat OR that you often do great in the strength and short your range of motion during the workouts, ask a coach for help….that’s what we are here for. Once you really master this exercise and can perform it correctly no matter what the circumstance, you will get stronger, faster, and all around better and that’s what training at WildFire CrossFit is all about!
