Vegas Strong WOD – October 1, 2018


Work Out of the Day


“Vegas Strong”

In teams of 2, for time:

91 Power snatches, 75/55lbs (buy in)

10 rounds-
200m Run (together)
-1 Rope climb (or 10 T2B)
17 Thrusters, 75/55lb

58 synchronized burpees over the bar (cash out)


On October 1, 2017 a terrorist opened fire, from the Mandalay Bay, on civilians attending the Route 91 Festival here in Las Vegas, NV.  This workout is in honor of those attending the concert, all the first responders and other hero’s that saved so many lives, and the way our whole city banded together in support that night.  The 91 power snatches is for the name of the event and because everyone was having a great time with their hands up at the concert.  The middle of the workout represents the date that we will never forget, 10/1/2017.  There are 58 burpees, 1 for each victim that had their life taken that horrible night.  The synchronized burpees at the end represent everyone getting down to take cover when they heard gunfire, and then getting back up to get away.  Rope climbs and running represent the survivors running and climbing to safety.  And the thrusters symbolize helping others get over walls, fences, and other obstacles to escape the danger.  This is a team workout because there was so much teamwork and heroism shown that night by so many.  Camp Rhino, CrossFit Apollo, CrossFit Max Effort, and SinCity CrossFit came together to create this workout, and we invite the whole CrossFit community to come together and commemorate this tragic event.  Las Vegas will never be the same, but we will continue to grow stronger together, and we will forever be Vegas Strong!

July 22, 2018 – David Vanbuskirk Hero WOD Fundraiser

At our gym we regularly do hero workouts to honor those crossfitters in the military, firefighters, and police officers who were killed in the line of duty. On Sunday July 22 will be hosting a special Hero workout for one of our friends, David VanBuskirk. He was a member at SinCity CrossFit South and he loved CrossFit. He liked every kind of workout, and was always the nicest most humble guy at the gym. David was a true Hero; serving our community, going on hundreds of rescue missions, and giving the ultimate sacrifice doing what he loved, saving lives.

Officer David Vanbuskirk died July 22, 2013, during a nighttime air rescue mission in Las Vegas, NV. The DVB crossfit hero workout was created in honor of Dave. This year four gyms in the valley will host the event to raise funds for the non profit Friends of Air Support and Search and Rescue. The funds raised will assist full time officers in attending national and international symposiums and conventions that often go unpaid by the department. These seminars are invaluable in networking with other professionals in the business who are sharing information on accidents and lessons learned. Safety standards and techniques are ever changing in the industry and the rescue community benefits greatly when learning from others’ experience.

This year marks the 5th anniversary of our tragic loss. There will be a limited amount of participation entries for the 9AM start time, however several gyms have expressed interest in doing other start times. Please inquire with your selected gym for further information. The entry is $30 per person and includes an event t-shirt. The ability to donate or purchase t-shirts only is also available. Thank you to all the gyms and Las Vegas community for supporting the LVMPD SAR family!

November 27, 2017 – FAll Fit Challenge Results!

Once again, we had so many amazing results in this year’s Fall Fit Challenge!  It was only 5 weeks this time, and during Halloween, so it just makes these results even more impressive!  First I would like to give some shout outs to some of our members who didn’t win, but still had great results.  

First off, here is an update on our spring fit challenge winner –  When Bryan Adams won in April he weighed 200lb, 41inch waist, 24%bf.  He didn’t improve the most in the last 5 weeks but he has been improving all year and we are super proud of his progress.  He is now at 180lbs, 38inches, and 17%bf!  This right here is the whole reason why we do these challenges, so that ya’ll can develop healthy long-term eating habits.

-Also, Coach Alex started the challenge 2 weeks late, but he was able to lose 11lbs and 7% body fat!

-Amy K did great this time as well, losing 7lbs, 2%bf, and 3 inches off her waist!

-Anna lost 8lbs, 1 inch, and 4%bf!  

-Erika lost 8lbs as well and 2.5 inches off her waist!

-Samantha lost 8lbs, 1.5 inches, and 3%bf and had massive improvements on her wods!

-Brooke lost 4lbs, 2.5 inches, 3%bf, and gained 3lbs of muscle!

-Kaylee lost 8lbs and 2.5 inches off her waist!

-Haley lost 4lbs, 2 inches, and 3% body fat!

These next few people did great, but did not complete enough workouts to win the challenge.

-Chris J lost an incredible 16lbs, 2.5 inches, and 5% body fat.

-Rena lost 8lbs, 1 inch, 5%bf, and gained 2lbs of muscle!  

-Melissa lost 8lbs, 1 inch, 4.5%bf, and gained 2.8lbs of muscle!

-Tommy lost 13lbs, 2 inches, and 4% body fat, all while recovering from shoulder surgery and working out with 1 arm!

And here are those that were super close to winning –

-Travis G lost 4lbs, 1 inch, and 3% bf.  He also gained 2lbs of muscle and improved his fran time to 3:30 and his Elizabeth time under 8 minutes!

-Rhonda lost 3% body fat and gained 5lbs of muscle!  She was a PR machine, improving her 3rm front squat, snatch, and clean n jerk and she got faster and more reps on 7 out of the 9 workouts!

-Our 3rd place male lost 7lbs, 3inches, 4%bf, and gained 4lbs of muscle!  He also improved on every single workout he did!  Great job Travis W!  

-The ladies were so close because they all killed it!  Our 3rd place lady lost 5lbs, 1.25 inches, 5.4%bf, and gained 2.8lbs of muscle!  Her 3rm front squat went up 10lbs as well as her snatch.  She also improved on every workout, and has really stepped it up competing in many local competitions.  Our 3rd place lady is Michelle!  

-The 2nd place guy was not overweight at all which makes his results even more impressive.  He lost 1lb, went from 8%bf down to 6%, and his muscle mass went up from 191.3 to 194.7!  He gained 10lbs on his 3rm fs, 15lbs on his snatch, and 22lbs on his clean n jerk.  He also knocked 30 seconds of his Fran and a minute off his Elizabeth.  This shows that if you eat right, you can gain muscle and improve your cardio and strength with CrossFit.  2nd place goes to Sean Turner.  

-The 2nd place lady lost 7.8lbs, 2.5 inches off her waist, lost 5.1%bf, and gained 1lb of muscle.  She got stronger on all the lifts and she improved her cardio by 2:24 on the long chipper workout.  Her Fran went from 6:45 to 5:14, and she improved her max rep handstand pushups from 30 to 53 reps!  Our #2 for the ladies is Cici!  

-The top guy did great at the spring fit challenge and he maintained his body comp to begin this challenge.  He lost 5.3lbs, 4% body fat, and gained 3.3lbs of muscle mass!  His clean and jerk went up 10lbs and his 3rm front squat went up 20lbs!  He improved his Fran time by 1:42 and he got 4 minutes faster on the long chipper workout!  His cardio has gone through the roof and he has just signed up for his first CrosssFit competition.  The winner is Erik Kessler!

-And our winning lady was just as impressive.  She said she really liked the Foodie Fit Meals and they were a big part in her doing so well.  She lost 9lbs, 1.5 inches, gained 2.5lbs of muscle, and lost an amazing 6.7% body fat in just 5 weeks!  She also improved on every workout and says she is in the best shape of her life at 53!  The Fall Fit Challenge winner is Gigi Burns!

2017 Police and Fire Games Results

The 2017 Police and Fire Games SinCity Fit Challenge have come and gone!  It was such an exciting event and we hope all the competitors, spectators, vendors, and voulunteers had a great time!  We had over 100 athletes complete 6 scored events all in under 8 hours!  I think the event gets better each year because of our awesome community.  And the level of competiton goes up every year as well.  The overall mens winner, Ryon Anderson; all around badass and super nice guy, told me that his first exposure to CrossFit was at our box at the 2012 Police and Fire Games.  He was in town from Virginia to compete at the Police and Fire Games boxing tournament.  He won gold and came down to our box to watch his friend compete at CrossFit.  He said he was so impressed by the events, the athletes, and the community that he wanted to start crossfitting right away.  That year the clean n jerk ladder ended with a 255lb bar, and this year the snatch ladder ended with a 275lb bar!  Now he is 35 and he was the fittest man in NV this past weekend.  This kind of story is so awesome to me and is why I love putting on great competitions and competing myself so much.  All you athletes that competed should be proud of yourselves because you have helped inspire and motivate someone watching to start crossfitting, or competing, or to just become the fittest version of themselves.  

I have so many people to thank that made this event possible:  

-my wife Sheena for putting together the goody bags and running the front desk all while taking care of baby Lincoln
-Krista for promoting the event on social media and getting all the judges together  
-Bobbie for helping me do all the behind the scenes stuff and doing a great job managing the athletes and judges
-Lance and his crew for making sure all the equipment was there for every heat on time
-Jarett for keeping a watchful eye on all the reps with me as head judge (and I know he will be back on the podium next year)  
-Veronica for being so quick and accurate with the scoring and Bjorn for developing the leaderboard
-thanks to Candace for videoing every single event, in a hot ass box, while pregnant, and streaming them live on fb
-Ray for taking sweet pics all day long so the athletes can have some memories to share with friends (all pics coming soon)
-Rand for getting all the police officers and fireman to come down and for holding it down on the mic
-DJ Andy Gil for making sure the box was bumpin all day long,
-Zert for donating the vests, Condor Outdoor, SFH, and Live sore for all the awesome prizes that were donated
-LJ for helping move bleachers and equipment  
-Thanks to TJ at South SinCity CrossFit Mike Springer at CF Henderson for letting us borrow equipment so that we could run big heats.  

Most importantly thank you so much to all the volunteers.  Thanks to Jolain, Nikki, Rhonda and others who helped with all kinds of stuff from cleaning to scoring to helping at front desk.   And last but not least, thanks to our badass team of judges that were out there counting reps and no repping all day long.  Amy G, Dorottya, Wendy, Christina A, Lisa F, Dani, Jen P, Samantha, Jessica C, Lynette, Meagan A, Jeseca R, Jen G, Kansas, Yasmin, Tommy, Thomas, Eric K, Cody, Justin S, Ross S, Ken, Tim W, Travis G, Dan G, Tim H, Scott O, Bryan A, Renee, and Will, we could not have done this event without you all.  Judging is not easy, especially with so many different movments and different kinds of workouts, but you all did a great job.  I hope you all had fun and would like to judge again in the future, and I know some of you were motivated to step up and compete next time!

Here is a recap of all the winners in each division – (all the leaderboards can be seen on our mainpage at sincitycrossfit.com)

Scaled – I am really proud of Maryann, PJ, Shanna, Charlene, Cici, Kaylee, Julie, and Michelle for competing, some of them for their first time, and giving their best.  Maryann Prd her 800m run with a vest, PJ got her first handstand pushups, and Cici Prd her snatch at 105lbs!  Julie made it to the final workout and Michelle finsihed 5th place overall.  It’s great to have so many competitive ladies at our box!  The scaled division was a lot of fun to watch.  Jessica Fraser (SCCF) was 2nd in the hspu workout and 3rd in the vest workouts and finished 3rd place overall!  Heather Presgrove (SCCF) just missed 1st place by 1 point!  She won 3 events including the deadlift workout and completed the final wod in just 2 minutes and 7 seconds!  And the overall winner in the scaled division was Kara Andrade (CF Double Down) she had the fastest 800m run and the most reps on the sandbag wod.  On the men’s side 
Blake Orenshaw, Jon Perry, Mike Sim, Daniel Mona, Eric Anderson, Danny Bell, and Kyle Carter worked hard on every event.  Sim won event 3 and was the only scaled guy to snatch the all 10 bars.  Kyle made it to the final workout and he came in 3rd on the snatch ladder.  Winning the vest workout and the handstand pushups and placing 3rd overall was Bret Fraser (SCCF)!  And Dean Renholm (SCCF) was consistent on every workout and it got him to the podium in 2nd place.  And the winner of the scaled division once again is Kris Rosana (CF Double Down).

 

Masters –  Anna Smith placed 4th place overall and finished out the day strong with a 2nd place in the final wod!   3rd place goes to Kelly Reid (SCCF) who was super consistent all day long and had two 2nd place finsihes.  In 2nd place was Rosa King (Henderson PD) who won the sandbag wod and had the fastest run.   But Kim Springer (CF Henderson) was just too good.  She won 4 workout and never finished lower than 3rd in any event!    Jeff and Brent both did great placing 10th and 12th in the mens division.  Shout out to Bruce Stacy (SCCF) for placing top 5 in every event and finishing 3rd overall!   Moacir (Brazilian Federal PD) was 2nd place and he came all the way form Brazil to compete.  Finally, John Schleifer (Outcast CF) won 1st place, and was one of the only athletes all day to finsih event 1, and the final wod only took him 91 seconds! 

RXd – Props to Frankie Gomez, Chris Ackley, and Matt Padilla for stepping up and taking on the challenge of the Rx division.  Chris and Matt were battling eachother all day and Matt just edged him out ny 2 points to get 9th place overall.  Tony had 3 top 5 finishes and got 8th overall in his first individual CrossFit comp.  Derrick also had a good day with a 2nd place on the hspu wod and 3rd place on the run, finshing 4th overall.  3rd place goes to Justin Field (Las Vegas Fire) with his best placing on the final wod in 3min flat.  Marcos Rivera (CF Max Effort) had three 1st place finishes, which would have been enough to win most comps, but it landed him in the number 2 spot.  Our overall fittest male came all the way from West Virgina and he won the vest workout and the deadlit workout, and he was top 5 in every event.  Congratualtions to Ryon Anderson (W Virginia St Trooper), the fittest police officer and overall winnner this year.  

The ladies Rx division was a close battle all day long.  I want to give a shout out to Reahana Senk for finishing 4th place overall and just missing the podium.  She got stronger physically and mentally as the day went on, and she finished top 5 in the last 3 workouts with a win in the hspu event.  Our 3rd place lady was very consistent and was 4th in the snatch event, even though she was the smallest athlete.  She also won the 1st event and the last event.  Great job Nikole Shrigley (CF Max Effort).  The battle for 1st place was super close all day long.  Brittany Hogeman (SCCF) beat Sarah Viets (SCCF) on the run by 1 second, and then Sarah won event 2 and they were tied up.  Then Sarah won the deadlift wod and was the only woman to snatch all 10 bars on the snatch ladder, and Brittany was right behind in 2nd place on both.  Brittany then took event 5 by 2 spots over Sarah, which means they were tied for 1st going into the final event.  The lead kept switching back and forth on that workout all the way through the muscle ups and at the end it was 1 muscle up that seperated the two and it was Sarah coming squeaking out the victory.  They are both fierce competitors and it’s going to be fun to see them battle all year long heading into next years open and regionals.  They showed great sportsmanship and are great examples for our members to look up to.  Great job ladies!

I would like to thank all of our sponsors once again:  Aaron Mauldin at Zert, Condor Outdoor, Live Sore, Jessica at Freeman Carpet Service, Drip Drs, Fitaid, Stronger Faster Healthier, Lyft Rx, Star Nursery, and Sting Alarm. 

Lastly, I hope everyone had a great time whether you competed, volunteered, or came to watch and cheer on your friends.  Please give us any feedback whether it is postive or negative.  We want to make our events bigger and better every year.  We love bringing together the Vegas CrossFit community, improving the level of fitness, and forging freindships that will last forever.

Why do you go to SCCF?  For a couple reasons; The workouts are pretty damn hard and I enjoy pushing myself. It’s also very refreshing being around good/ positive people. I enjoy seeing the SCCF members cheering others on, giving tips on form/ coaching and just talking and hanging out after a workout.

Who is your favorite trainer?  I don’t have a favorite… Each has their own way of training and they all know way more about CrossFit/Diet/ Exercise than I do, so I like what each trainer has to offer.

Biggest achievement since you started/ what you are most proud of?  Just being in overall better shape.

What are your fitness goals for this year?  Go to SCCF on the days that the workout implement’s movement’s I can’t do or I’m not good at. I want to work on my form for movements like overhead squat, snatch, cleans and jerks. Getting stronger is a big priority.

 

Athlete Spotlight – Tommy

Name: Tommy Delgado
Age: 36
Occupation:    teacher/Student
Single/married/family?     Married, w/ two girls 5 and 1.
Where are you from?      Born in Colombia, raised in the South Bay (Torrance, Redondo, Hermosa)
Favorite activity outside of CrossFit?    Playing basketball, running, spending time with my girls…
Favorite workout music?      I make my own playlist on Spotify… Hip hop, some house, and country
Do you follow paleo or zone diet?     Currently I am doing Zone but I’ve done Paleo also.  Seen my best results with the Zone diet.
Do you you, or did you play any sports?    Played a little football and basketball in high school.  But now I just play ball recreationally
How long have you been crossfitting?     First time I signed up was in May of 2012… Wasnt in the gym consistently at the beginning, but always found my way back. Was not a big a crossfit believer when I first started, but my wife (Michelle Delgado) kept me interested.  She’s the reason I’ve stuck with it for so long.
How many times a week do you crossfit?   I use to be at main at least 4 to 5 times a week in the past, but since our schedules have gotten busier and since I tore my rotator cuff I try to get in at least 2 to 3 days a week.
Why did you start training at SCCF?  My wife started in October of 2011 and she kept pushing me to go and I saw how hard she worked and the results she got.  Once I tried it I enjoyed the workouts and the competitiveness.  But once I started I was hooked… I did metcon for a long time and then decided to make the move to WOD’s, and im glad I did.
Favorite movement?  before I tore my rotator cuff it was power cleans and kipping pull-ups… when I was able to get kipping pull ups for the first time I was pumped it was a great feeling.  Now, id say deadlifts and anything running related and rope climbs since in the last few months I’ve been able to start doing them. (HUGE moment for me, all credit goes Jarret!) Lol.
Why do you go to SCCF?  Ever since I started going to SCCF I feel like I’ve seen the best results from working out.  I enjoy competing against myself and pushing my limits. And it’s pretty cool that their is such family oriented environment. The coaches are great and they motivate and push you to maximize your potential.
Who is your favorite trainer?  Hmmm… My favorite when I started was TJ, but he’s at South now.  But honestly everyone is awesome and has your best interest in mind.  Every single one of the has taught me something that Ive used to get stronger and in better shape.
What is something people would be surprised to know about you?  Previous to being a student and teacher I was in law enforcement.  Still love the profession to this day, but just not for me anymore.
How has crossfit improved your life?  Where do I start.  Being that out of high school I was 300 lbs + Ive always had to battle genetics and myself when it came to managing my weight.  When I started at SCCF i was about 250 lbs, and today I’m 195 and still grinding to get stronger and in better shape.  Crossfit keeps me motivated to improve my quality of life and through SCCF I’ve learn to eat better and healthier which subsequently has improved my health and life.  What you put into your body is SO IMPORTANT and over time crossfit has taught me to be smarter about my diet.
What or who inspires you the most?   At the risk of sounding cheesy, id say my wife and my two little ones.  My wife is a lifer when it comes SCCF she’s made so many improvements physically and strength wise over the years, all I’m trying to do is keep up, lol.  She’s at the 5 am class religiously and if she’s traveling for work she’s finding a box wherever she is looking to get her workout in before she hits her work day.  And when I say my girls, they motivate to stay healthy, live healthy and get stronger so I can see them grow up and not miss any important moments in their lives.  Ive had family pass away from strokes that were weight related and I always swore that wouldn’t be me.  Im glad that Ive finally found something that enjoy doing that keeps me motivated and working out.
Biggest achievement since you started/ what you are most proud of?  Id say being able to lose over 50 pounds and being able to keep it off.  Its been a bumpy road specially after my shoulder injury.  I stayed away for 6 months in fear of getting hurt again, but once I got back in with the help of all the trainers I’ve been able to re gain all the momentum I lost while I was away. Oh, and coming in 2nd in one of the challenges was also a big deal for me! Lol.
What are your fitness goals for this year?   To continue to get stronger even while my shoulder is injured, and after I have surgery to get even stronger.  And to keep pushing myself to my limits while still listening to my body so I don’t hurt myself again (my injury was a product of me not listening to my body). And to have a six pack by November because I made a bet with some friends that I CANNOT LOSE!!!! Ahahaha.
