LAX CrossFit on Alexa!


Get Some Alexa!

A while back I posted about an Alexa Game I created – a fan tribute to one of the first computer adventure games ever made: Zork! Well since then, I’ve been busy working on more fun ways for people to interact with their Alexa enabled devices (Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Fire TV, Fire Tablets). You can check out all my creations here, but this post is about an Alexa Skill I made for all you LAXers out there. That’s right – LAX CrossFit is now an Alexa Skill!

What To Say To Alexa

“Alexa, enable L A X CrossFit”

Once it’s enabled, here are some things you can say:

  • “Alexa, start L A X CrossFit”
  • “Alexa, ask L A X CrossFit what’s the workout today”

Once the skill is active, you can say things like:

  • “Events”, “What’s going on at the gym”, “What is happening at L A X”, “What events are coming up”
  • “What is the WOD”, “What’s the workout today”, “WOD”, “What’s today’s workout”
  • “What’s the schedule of classes”, “Is there a CrossFit 101 class today”, “Is there a Kids class today”
  • “Where is L A X CrossFit”
  • “Home WOD”, “I want a workout I can do at home”
  • “Glossary”, “What is some L A X jargon”, “Tell me some CrossFit jargon”
