What's Happening at Wildfire Crossfit

  • Congratulations to all our Nutrition 4.0 Challengers!!
    Congratulations to all our Nutrition 4.0 Challengers!!

    So what really happens when you take 35 days and really focus on what you are using as fuel for you body? The Ignite Your Life Nutrition Challenge 4.0 came to a close on Saturday and even though the Anniversary Party may have gotten more attention in the last few days it was the Nutrition Challenge finals that should truly get the spotlight!

    The challenge started September 13 with measurements, pictures, plans and a workout. The workout included a 1 Rep Max Deadlift and a CrossFit benchmark "The Chief", which is 3 rounds of a 3 minute AMRAP of 3 power cleans, 6 push ups, and 9 squats. What transpired over the 35 days that followed was absolutely phenomenal!

    Here are some of the things we heard from our challengers:

    "I need to eat more food"
    "I have so much more energy"
    "My skin is clearer"
    "I was able to get off my fibromyalgia medication"
    "My joint pain is gone"
    "I learned to pack healthier food for my kids"

    Oh, and we lost some extra pounds of fat & gained strength too! Together we got rid of 105lbs of fat, and 101 inches! We gained 470# in our Deadlift and increased our Chief reps by 939!!!

    Here are your Nutrition Challenge 4.0 Winners:

    2nd Place - Amanda Rangel

You won a $150 towards a group happy hour and fellow challenger Melanie Nicklin graciously donated custom made WildFire Jamberry nail wraps for the ladies! She also has them for sale at the gym too!

    So what's next? This was just a jumping off point; a 35 day jump start to new ways of thinking about your food intake, eating habits, and lifestyle. Now it's time to keep it going and we are here to help! Stay tuned for some great new programs to keep you on point at WildFire CrossFit!

    For those of you who missed it, you missed out cuz the WildFire CrossFit Anniversary Party was off the hook! We ate, we drank, we danced, we laughed, and we toasted to 2 great years as a fitness community! It really was incredible to celebrate our 2 year anniversary with so many great friends and family. We are lucky to have accomplished a lot in the short time we have been a gym, we could not have done it without every member and coach we have, and we look forward to many, many more!!

    During the party we gave out awards for the Nutrition Challenge as well as the student awards that our athletes and coaches got to vote on. Most of them were very fun awards while others were the culmination of a lot of hard work and perseverance.

    The Best Dressed award could not have been more perfect as Eric Cotecson showed up dressed to thrill and ready to accept his award. AJ Montgomery won the Chalk Monster and in true Chalk Monster fashion, immediately said, “I don’t use that much chalk!” Sean Nejad ran away with the Best Sweat Angel award as athletes only needed to see his picture on the athlete board to give him the nod. The last event sealed the deal for the Best WOD Face as Josh Velez looked like he was going to kill someone and rip the bar in half. The final category, like most things was all about the snatch as Nicole James and Ray Yoro were co-winners of the Best Form category.

    Once the fun awards were completed, we gave out some awards that were very near and dear to our heart. It is the reason we do what we do and to have so many athletes who made these awards so tough to decide really shows how special the WildFire Community really is.

    The Spirit of WildFire award went to Cindy “Tater” Byrne. Tater has been part of the WildFire Community for almost a year and a half. I remember when she first came in to train with a great attitude and hard work ethic. What she does as part of this community goes way beyond the great fitness results she has received. She supports the members of this community by coming to every event and competition she can. She cheers people on, welcome new members in, and last year she even drove the Ragnar Van! She is a perfect example of what this Community is all about and we were thrilled to give her the Spirit of WildFire award!

    The Male and Female Athlete of the Year awards went to two people who exemplify hard work and determination and both the results and physical changes we have seen from both of them have been nothing short of incredible.

    Male Athlete of the Year – He has been a part of WildFire CrossFit since the beginning. He spearheaded the 5:30am class and has been a reason we have gone from 2 days a week to 5 days a week for the express class. He set an amazing example because no matter how busy he s and how much he has going on in his life, he always finds time to train and he puts every ounce of effort into the time that he has! No matter what life has thrown at him he has always displayed a positive attitude and over this last year he has really stepped up as a leader in every aspect of the WildFire Community.

    Female Athletes of the Year – Bri Maynes has been a member of the WildFire Community since June 2013. It is poetic that she was referred by our Spirit award winner, Tater, and they really have evolved together as athletes in this Community. Bri has shown how perseverance, dedication, and hard work can pay off as she continually conquers her goals. After the Hotshots workout last year she promised that this year she would do the pull-ups without a band and she did it! She has taken part in every challenge and compeititon at WildFire and really started to get involved in the greater CrossFit Communities compeititon. At every event you will see her cheer ing her fellow WildFire athlete.

    We are really prod of all 3 of these athletes and can’t wait to see what their future as leaders within the Community!

    Between some of the awards we got to recognize and thank our coaches for all they do every day. The fact is that WildFire CrossFit would not be the place it is today without the hard work and dedication of all of our coaches. They truly care about the success of the athletes and helping them reach their goals and get results. We constantly receive great feedback about their classes and every one of them is passionate and they coach every class as if it is the most important thing they have to do that day. We are SO proud of everything they do and on Saturday we got to Thank them for helping to make WildFire CrossFit such a special place to be. The Coaching Roster at WildFire CrossFit is:

    Coach Laura Carstens

    Coach Damian Walker

    Coach James Olson

    Coach Chris Kern

    Coach Renee York

    Coach Jason Sanders

    Coach Dan Maggio

    Coach Tom Casella

    Coach Matt Buse


    We want to send a very special Thanks to Mark Baldwin from Next Level Signs and Les Manes who came out to photograph the event and help capture the memories of the occasion

    Thanks to EVERYONE who came out to celebrate 2 amazing years! We are so lucky to be able to live our dream every day and we are dedicated to continue to make WildFire CrossFit the most amazing fitness community out there! We know where this community can go and we can’t wait to see what the future has in store. We have only scratched the surface and we look forward to many more celebrations in the years to come and will continue to go Beyond Just Fitness every day!

    Monday, October 20th 2014

    This Thursday, October 23rd at 7:30 pm we will be doing our monthly Skill Clinic Series on the Overhead Squat. The Overhead Squat is to the Snatch as Front Squats are to the Clean. IT get’s you comfortable at getting under the weight and increases your ability to catch more weight overhead while in the bottom of the squat. It is also an exercise that requires core strength and flexibility to maintain the proper position and be able to get your hips below parallel. Join us this Thursday as we go through technique, drills, mobility, and how to increase your strength on this exercise. We will not have our typical 7:30 class on Thursday and we encourage everyone to take advantage of this FREE Skill clinic as it will give you the foundation you need to get stronger in all of your overhead lifts.
