  • What is Intensity? How Do I Use It?
    What is Intensity? How Do I Use It?

    By: Coach Jason Sanders

    The dictionary defines intensity as 1. the quality or condition of being intense. 2. Great energy, strength, concentration, passion, etc…. as of activity thought or feeling. We witnessed great examples of intensity in the CrossFit Games particularly Rich Froning on the last day of the event.  His focus was laser sharp, his was determined, he was intense. Froning was mentally ready and physically prepared to earn his fourth consecutive title at the games. These amazing top level athletes do not simply show up intense at competitions they use intensity in all aspects of their training. As an athlete you will reach your goals faster, get stronger, you will become quicker, hit more PR’s and destroy more WOD’s if you approach every workout with intensity.

    Great time and effort goes into our programming to make it constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity. The design of class itself moves athletes from relatively low intensity in the warm up to higher in the strength/skill and highest intensity during the WOD. The physical intensity is provided for you in our programming it is up to each individual athlete to bring your own mental intensity to each workout. Intensity needs to begin in the warm-up. The warm-up is the perfect time to focus your mind on class and on paying close attention to the proper mechanics and standards of the movements. Do not simply go through the motions, be intense and focused on your movements use this time to really improve your form.  As the strength begins use the first couple sets to focus on form for that particular movement. I personally do it every set and I use a detailed mental checklist from start to finish. For example for the squat it starts with step under the bar, place it on my back and grip it evenly, take a step back, keep my weight in my heels, push my hips back and down, get below parallel, push through my heels, keep my knees over my toes, keep my chest high, squeeze my glutes, reach full extension, repeat, and safely rack the bar. I focus on each rep with this intensity. As I get closer to the last set or PR attempts I take time to mentally visualize myself performing the lift successfully several times. This means I’m taking time for myself to become intensely focused on one thing I’m blocking out all distractions and even my friends at the gym. I will remain intensely focused on this one event until the rep is completed. Now we come to the highest intensity in the WOD. I guarantee you that your mind will push your body much farther than it thinks it can go. This is the time to be the most intense in class. When that buzzer sounds complete mental and physical intensity is mandatory. There is no room in your head for life’s other responsibilities, worry, doubt, fear, or hesitation.  Take a couple moments before the buzzer to settle your mind and become the most intense you’ve been all day. Set a goal before the WOD, pick an athlete whose times are close to yours and make it your mission to be faster than they are. Your intensity will be tested as you become tired and you will maintain it because you know your mind will push your body places it thought it would never go. You will destroy this WOD! Push yourselves, have fun, be intense, release your inner Froning and you will surpass your goals.

  • 2014 Reebok CrossFit Games
    2014 Reebok CrossFit Games

    This weekend almost 20 members from the WildFire CrossFit Community went to Carson, CA to watch the 2014 Reebok CrossFit Games. Over 40 Men & 40 Women from all over the world competed in 13 events over 4 days to win the title of “Fittest on Earth”. In addition to the individual competition, over 40 teams of 6 athletes (3 Men & 3 Women) worked together for a chance to win the Affiliate Cup. These athletes went through everything from an ocean swim, running, and rowing to Olympic lifting, gymnastics skills, and pure strength work for an extremely challenging competition. The competition hit on several different time domains as the workouts lasted anywhere from under a minute to over 30 minutes. This was one of the most exciting CrossFit Games competitions to date and we were thrilled to be able to see it in person.


    Rich Froning had to come from behind to win his 4th straight CrossFit Games title by dominating on Saturday night and Sunday. Camille Leblanc-Bazinet won her 1st title by showing what consistency was all about. She only won 1 event but she averaged just under 8th place over all 13 workouts. Finally, CrossFit Invictus won the Affiliate Cup by showing what teamwork and mental toughness was all about. There were many other outstanding performances including


    Overall the best part about the competition came down to what many of us love most about CrossFit...COMMUNITY! Fans cheered on their favorites to win and cheered louder for athletes who were struggling to finish. This is the only sport in the world where the athletes go cheer on their fellow competitors to finish their event. My favorite moment of the entire competition was during the Friday night event. Neal Maddox took off his gloves and gave them to another athlete who had ripped his hands and was struggling to finish. This is just one of many instances of sportsmanship and comradery that are unparalleled in the sport world.


    All in all it was an amazing weekend and I was thrilled to be able to share it with some of the people who mean the most to me. It was a demonstration of hard work and perseverance and the evolutions of this event and the sport of CrossFit has been staggering. As the popularity of CrossFit increases, everyone from the athletes who’s goal is to stand on the podium at the CrossFit Game to the person who just want to improve their lives through fitness and nutrition, will have something to drive them. Every step of the way the Wildfire Crossfit Community will be there to help show people how they can go BEYOND JUST FITNESS!

  • 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!
