Welcome To Wildfire CrossFit

Welcome to Wildfire CrossFit Phoenix, AZ! CrossFit is a fitness program like no other. It develops all ten areas of physical fitness using functional movements that are constantly varied and performed at high intensity. What does that mean for you? We combine weight lifting, cardiovascular endurance, body weight movements, and flexibility to offer a professionally coached program that produces results, never gets boring, and creates a strong community of people who work together to improve their lives through fitness.  Whether you’re looking to start your first fitness program, or are a seasoned athlete looking to improve performance, Wildfire CrossFit in Phoenix is for you. 

What's Happening at Wildfire Crossfit

  • The Endurance Hike is a great way to start your Saturday!
    The Endurance Hike is a great way to start your Saturday!

    One of the programs that we are excited about at WildFire Crossfit is the endurance program. Every Saturday morning at 6:30 am we alternate between the PVCC Track and one of the Mountain trails in the area. Tomorrow we will be meeting at 6:30 am at Squaw Peak which is one of the best hikes in the Valley.

    The philosophy of “Constantly Varied” exercises performed at high intensity is one of the reason why CrossFit works so well. In our CrossFit classes throughout the week, we hit on every area of physical fitness. From the warm up, through the strength, and into the workout of the day, we work pretty much every muscle in your body every single day. As well as this works, if your goal is to become an elite athlete, you need to add additional training into your workout regimen. Strength, Endurance, Technique Work…these are all great additions and will help you keep it fresh and keep moving in the right direction.

    The Hike is a great way to build your endurance. Many professional athletes use hill work, sprints, and stairs as a training method to improve. The hike really combines these methods and because of the terrain it is also a great way to increase your agility, coordination, and balance. As you build your cardiovascular endurance through the hikes and sprint work on Saturdays you will also notice an improvement in your power and stamina. Ultimately, it is a great overall addition to your fitness program. Plus, it is a beautiful way to start your Saturday as the views from most of the local area mountain trails, including Squaw Peak, are spectacular.

    Don’t wait! Meet up with other members of the WildFire Crossfit Community tomorrow for a great start to your Saturday and a great addition to your fitness program!

  • 2014 Reebok CrossFit Games this weekend
    2014 Reebok CrossFit Games this weekend

    This week a bunch of the members of the Wildfire CrossFit Community are heading to California for the Super Bowl of the sport of CrossFit. The 2014 Reebok CrossFit Games will be held in Carson, CA on Friday, July 25th until Sunday, July 27th. This event is the culmination of a journey that started back in March with the CrossFit Games Open Competition. Approximately 50 men, 50 women, and 30 Teams will battle it out through several different workouts to win the title of “Fittest on Earth”.

    The beauty of this event is that it takes more than just proficiency in one or two areas of physical fitness to win. These athletes must be skilled in all ten areas of physical fitness to really make a run at the title. The workouts are grueling. Each day these athletes will have 2-3 different WODs that will test their limits. In fact, these athletes need to be at the top of their game (and everyone elses) to really have a shot. As many of the best in the world saw in the Regional workouts, held in June, a bad showing in any one event could eliminate them from the title contention.

    Rich Froning has won the CrossFit Games for the past three years. He is going to need to repeat his outstanding performances from previous years and then some to hold onto his title against a stacked field of competitors. Annie Thorisdottir, a two time CrossFit Games Champion, is back at it after an absence last year due to an injury. It is going to be a great competition to watch.

    You can catch all of the action at games.crossfit.com where you will be able to watch these events live starting Friday morning. We will be posting updates and pictures on the WildFire CrossFit Facebook page. You do not want to miss the action. While some of our coaches are going to be in California we are excited that we will still have a full schedule of classes while we are away including and endurance hike at Squaw Peak on Saturday morning at 6:30 am, our FREE Open to the public class at 9 am, Olympic Lifting at 10:30 am and Open Gym on Sunday from 11 am till 1 pm. Get into WildFire CrossFit over the CrossFit Games weekend to get your own great workout in and get updates on the competition.

  • The Hang Position
    The Hang Position

    The Hang Position

    Training the Hang position is beneficial for technical proficiency of 2nd pull (back into the hips and “power position”) before the 3rd pull (vertical extension and fast transition under the bar). Training lifts from the hang can also show where an athlete is weak and having problems as well as training the athlete’s speed, forcing their body under the bar.

    Here are some key points to keep in mind regarding the Hang snatch:

    1)      The bar is positioned above the knees of the lifter, and the shoulders are angled well-over the bar as if the athlete is “protecting” the bar with their stomach.

    2)      The athlete’s shins must be vertical, and knees pulled back and out of the way of the bar path. Even though the knees are out of the way, they never become fully straightened out.

    3)      The combined weight of the bar and the lifter should be seated over the heels of the lifter, NOT the mid-foot, nor toes.

     Remaining patient with this specific positional lift is vital to a successful lift from the hang.

    Here are some cues that many renowned coaches use to mentally cue their lifters:

    • “Being Patient”
    • “Stay over the bar”
    • “Don’t leave the bar naked”
    •  “Keep your shoulders in front on the bar”

  • Forging the Future of Fitness at WildFire CrossFit
    Forging the Future of Fitness at WildFire CrossFit

    Last week at WildFire CrossFit, we hosted our first and very successful WildFire CrossFit Kids Summer Camp! We averaged twelve kids each day ages 5-12 where they learned an assortment of skills, stretches, and the importance of nutrition. So many PR's happened during the week as many conquered wall climbs for the first time, and flipped tires, and kicked themselves upside down for handstands. They learned to work together as a team and encourage one another in relay and partner WODs. We started off with baseline, worked in Annie, added in Mini Murph, threw in a “Roxanne”, “Fran”, “Sally” trifecta and with smiles on their faces, they always asked “What’s next, Coach?”.  I could not be more proud of a group of kids. It was sheer joy to see the looks on their faces as they gave their all each day. I know each child ended camp knowing he or she is capable of achieving anything through confidence and dedication.

    Thank you to all the coaches that assisted with camp. From squat and Olympic lift sessions, breaking down and moving the wall, and taking photos, you help make this an exciting week!   A huge thank you to parents for investing in your child’s fitness and health and allowing me to coach these young athletes. They are the next generation of CrossFit and I’m so grateful to be able to provide a program that will help them grow physically and mentally with your help! Lastly, thank you to our campers for giving 110% effort each and every day! I hope you had just as much fun as I did.

    We are already receiving questions and feedback regarding Summer Camp for 2015 and plans are already in the works for multiple weeks!  Stay tuned for more details, but I promise you will not want to miss! Until then, continue to join us for our WildFire CrossFit Kids class every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturdays and stay in contact with us through our Facebook page.

    3-2-1 CROSSFIT KIDS!

    -Coach Renee

    Coach Renee did an outstanding job of running the CrossFit Kids Summer Camp just as she does Coaching the Kids program throughout the year. You can tell how passionate she is about helping kids see success in fitness. These kids were truly inspiring and we are excited about the growth of our CrossFit Kids program. At WildFire CrossFit we offer classes every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. The Advanced Kids (around 10 and up) meet at 4:30pm on Tuesday and Thursday and the younger kids (starting at around 5) meet at 5:30 pm. Just like the adults we give the kids a free week of unlimited training to get an opportunity to experience what CrossFit can do for them. Plus, the classes during the week meet at the same time as the adults so parents can work out at the same time their kids do. We would love to have you and your kids see how WildFire CrossFit is such a family friendly and fun community so come on in TODAY!

  • Equipment Isn't Always Necessary
    Equipment Isn't Always Necessary

    At WildFire CrossFit we offer 9 classes each day and are open from the time the first class starts at 5:30 am until the last class ends at 8:30 pm. When we do not have classes going on, the gym is open for your use. During Open Gym athletes have the opportunity to work on strength, skills, and other workouts. While you are always going to get the best results by coming to class, we want our athletes to have every opportunity to get stronger, faster, and all around better. The reason WildFire CrossFit works so well is because athletes work together, getting the coaching the need to stay on track and be accountable to a program. Even with a very full schedule including classes and open gym on the weekends, between family, work, and vacations, there are times when it can be tough to get into the gym. That is when it may be necessary to include some at home or No Equipment Necessary workouts into your training regimen.

    No Equipment Necessary Workouts are workouts developed from body weight exercises. Exercises such as sit ups, push ups, air squats, and burpees are just a few that can be used in these workouts. At WildFire, we have a list of No Equipment Necessary Workouts that you can take with you when you travel or just have for those times when you just can’t make it into the gym. Most of them are developed for a small space such as a hotel room or a living room. If you have some equipment at your disposal, such as a hotel fitness center, you can add in other exercises such as dumbbell push press, pull ups, or even Olympic Lifting depending on the available equipment.

    The point is that there is not excuse. There is always a way to keep training. As coaches, we are also here to help you continue that training. We would be happy to put together some programming that will allow you to stay on point. The key is to hold yourself accountable by logging your time/score just like you would in the gym. In addition, in the very near future we will be putting some videos on our Facebook page and our website which explain some of these different workouts, the exercises you need to perform, and the proper way to perform them safely, efficiently, and effectively. There is always a way to keep it going, and as WildFire CrossFit grows we will add more classes and programs so you have more opportunities. Take the time to make it work for you both in the gym and out and your results will be amazing. This is the way to stay at the top of your game, stay in shape, and take another steo towards elite fitness.
