Hey Guys - so I just registered for the Whiskey Row 1/2 Marathon in Prescott on October 9, 2021. I created a group called "Chuckwalla Runners" at registration so that if any other Chuckwalla peeps are thinking about it, we could have a team! You can use this link to register:

The more, the merrier!
Upgraded the kiosk for Chuckwalla Fitness to our new model.
Did you know was one of our first gyms we partnered with? It was almost a year ago we launched with chuckwalla!

Being an early adopter, they have helped us make solutions for their business and customers.

Thank you .

Also check out the Scratch Culinary app on our platform. They are also an early adopter and long standing AmpedPro partner.

I dont know about you, but this being quarantined thing has got me snacking all the time! Just like my friend here who loves to snack!๐Ÿ˜

Raising your โค rate increases those feel good hormones and changes your state of mind. Maybe your gym is closed. Go for a walk. Do body weight exercises (squats, pushups, jumprope). Let me know if you need ideas! I'll be posting more on this later.โฃ

Open 2022 in the books! Great job on 22.3 athletes!!!!


: Dan Gradows
Dan has been a member with us since 2019, and we figured it was a good time to check in again and re-introduce him! If you're up for a challenge, try to beat him in our annual chili contest!

Here is his story-
"Hi, my name is Dan Gradows. I recently became married to another Chuckwallian athlete, Amy Tunis, in November of last year. We have a blended family with four kids, ages 11,13,15,16; each with very different personalities, talents, and athletic abilities. For the most part my hobbies center around Crossfit and lifting, with a lean towards lifting due to the slight distaste for running (caused by old age and trauma). I have also just recently started an HR Analytics blog with fellow Chuckwalla friend and colleague Bryce Butzine. I work for various companies as an HR Data and Analytics Strategist.

I have been with Chuckwalla for what feels like forever, both for me and for John, but officially just over three years. I have been an athlete for my entire life and have been on and off again with Crossfit for 12 years total. I joined Chuckwalla when my then girlfriend started attending classes and I felt it necessary to follow her and show of my aerobic skills.

Outside of watching some truly awesome athletes and furnishing my closet with most of my attire, I would say the impact has been the relationships with others. Getting to know the community and witnessing members push themselves to their last breath. Chuckwalla has taught me that you must always โ€œHookgripโ€ the grocery bags, that thereโ€™s a way to say anything in Hawaiian Pidgin (โ€œBrah, Chuckwalla choke good timesโ€) and that nothing in life is as bad as only being able to train on the assault bike.

For me, [fitness applies to life] because it is all about understanding that I can be more than I was yesterday. That we each get dealt hands as we go through life that are not always the kindest (socially, professionally, mentally, and physically) but if we apply ourselves and reach for the โ€œwhat ifsโ€ in life, we will often surprise ourselves about how far we can go.

I remember this quote a few weeks back when talking about my late father. When I asked him how he managed his own business and all the pressures that came with that during the most difficult times imaginable. He just said, โ€œSometimes you just have to do itโ€.

I have three pieces of advice: 1) Mobility, Mobility Mobility โ€“ Make sure you take the time to stretch each day and if you do not know how, talk to the coaches or some cool PTโ€™s Meghan and Dillion. 2) Be humble and open to โ€œthe pain of getting back into itโ€. Most of us will not be going to the Crossfit games, and because of that, remember that you are here to compete against you and you alone. 3) You do not have to do everything the first day, month, year or ever and you will still be successful."


Itโ€™s not about perfection. Itโ€™s about doing your bestโ€ฆwith what you have that dayโ€ฆevery single day. Itโ€™s in that effort that great things grow.


The is really quite special. Yes itโ€™s a competition, a test. But take some of the pressure off. Itโ€™s also a fun workout. A celebration of fitness. A coming together of a GLOBAL community! So have fun with it too!

โ€œI'd encourage you to take a step back and appreciate just
how cool and special it is that there is a globally coordinated fitness test that's participated in by the most
diverse group of humans (that I am aware of) that have ever shared events & a leader board together.โ€

is ready for you!

Programmed in all classes Friday. Remember there is a version for everyone so come get a good workout!


CrossFit Open workouts are here! Watch the live announcement today, Thurs 2/24, at 12pm PT! Then register & join a class tomorrow (Friday) to get your workout in.

Did we mention there are several options for each workout, making it easy to find a place where you can be challenged yet not discouraged over the course of the three weeks? Here are some of the divisions you can choose from:

Foundations - Just started CrossFit or maybe this is your first Open? The foundations workouts are a great place to start.

Scaled - Not quite ready to tackle the workouts as written? No problem. The scaled division offers classic scaling options for many of CrossFitโ€™s common gymnastics movements and includes lighter loading.

Rxโ€™d - Do the workouts as written. This is the most challenging option, yet many individuals have moved from scaled to Rxโ€™d as they progress from year to year.

Age Groups - There are nine age group divisions offering Rx'd and scaled versions of the workouts for teenage athletes aged 14-17 as well as masters athletes ages 35+.

The Open is for everyone, and it serves athletes in a variety of ways. For most, the CrossFit Games season is complete after three weeks of the Open and is a standalone yearly endeavor. For others, the Open serves as the first qualifying round for additional competition.

A setback does not erase your progress.

Setbacks (or even just changes in pace, progress, intensity) are inevitable. But when they do happen it is important to remember that they donโ€™t erase all the progress youโ€™ve previously made!

If you expect occasional setbacks, you canโ€™t use them as a reason to quit.

Use them to learn from, push through, and get back on path as soon as possible.

: Taya Adams

Here is her story:

"Hey everyone my name is Taya (pronounced Tay-uh) and I am originally from California, but I have been living in Phoenix since I was 10 (so a long long looong time :D). I went to the University of Arizona and got a bachelors in chemistry, and now I work at a pharmaceutical company that manufactures breast cancer medication. Working for a company that manufactures breast cancer medication is super rewarding, and I am happy that my work is helping people.

Besides working I really enjoy hiking, and I would definitely recommend going to Fossil Creek in Strawberry, AZ. It has an amazing waterfall and swimming hole that is really refreshing after a long summer hike. I also enjoy road biking, and crazy enough last September I biked from Walla Walla, WA to Missoula, MT to fundraise for cancer research. It was one of the most challenging things that I have done, but also the most rewarding (not sure if anyone noticed but my picture on Wodify is me finishing my first day of riding over 70 miles, I was SO happy!).

Once I finished training for my bike ride I wanted to continue working out and being active, and thatโ€™s when I found Chuckwalla. I had originally begun doing crossfit before the pandemic, but once the pandemic hit I didnโ€™t have much motivation. Chuckwalla has definitely changed my mentality, and I have been having such a great time learning Crossfit lifts again and building up my endurance. I hope to get a chance to meet everyone and workout together sometime.

Thank you for welcoming me! ๐Ÿ˜Š"


Fitness and health habits aren't just for the stages where we have "enough time,โ€ โ€œenough energy,โ€ โ€œenough motivation.โ€

Health and fitness are the tools we use to allow us to live fully in every stage.

They are habits that become a part of our daily lives to enrich each stage and remind us what's important - what we are capable of. They remind us of our strength.

What stage are you in? How are your habits improving?

PS: You can maintain healthy habits at any stage, even if the habits look a little different based on the demands of that stage. DM if you want to work with our coaches to help you manage healthy habits in the stage youโ€™re in!

Our Story Is Your Story

CrossFit is a functional fitness strength and conditioning program that will make you strong in any scenario of life . There's no more need to worry about if you'll be able to help that friend move, or wonder if you'll be fit enough to play with your grandkids someday. CrossFit is the ultimate training program that allows you to be the best version of yourself, for life. Our CrossFit program is geared to help you be the strongest, fittest, and most confident person you can be. You've got to give it a try to truly experience what it's all about. We promise you won't regret it.

If youโ€™re feeling a little uncertain โ€“ donโ€™t worry, youโ€™re not alone. Most people have a totally wrong impression of what high-intensity exercise is all about.

Our trained coaches know how to scale movements to fit your abilities.

You just have to show up and give it your best!
