The 7 Sacred Rules at AllStar

At CrossFit AllStar we commit to live the following:

  1. I promise to do my best. My best will vary from day to day, minute to minute. But in that minute I will do my absolute best.
  2. If I can run, I run. If I have to walk, I walk. When I am forced to crawl, I crawl. Then I rest and live to fight another day.
  3. I may struggle, curse and cry but I will never quit.
  4. I will never criticize or beat myself up for what I can't do today. I will just try again tomorrow.
  5. I promise to believe in myself, beginning each workout with the thought that "I can do this!"
  6. I show up to my workouts because I am committed to my health. My commitment to health is an act of self-love.
  7. I acknowledge that my diet is the most important part of my program. The cleaner it is, the better I do.

LABOR DAY SCHEDULE 

CrossFit AllStar LABOR DAY SCHEDULE  
READ so you don't miss out on updates and holiday schedule!


Labor Day Schedule:

8:30 AM will be the ONLY class held on Monday, September 2, Labor Day. 
This will be the ONLY class held on Labor Day! ALL OTHER CLASSES CANCELLED! Enjoy your holiday and get outside for a run, swim, hike, beach, or quality time with friends, family, or yourself:)

We'll be performing the CrossFit Memorial WOD Hotshots 19, a workout programmed in memorial of the 19 firefighters who lost their lives in Prescott fighting fires. 

The workout will NOT be a "bring your friends and family for FREE" style class because we are growing in numbers and i'd like to reserve the gym that day for active members.

Hope to see you Monday! See Hotshots 19 workout below:


IN HONOR OF THE FALLEN HOTSHOTS

"Hotshots 19"

  • Six rounds for time of:
  • 30 Squats
  • 135 pound Power clean, 19 reps
  • 7 Strict Pull-ups
  • Run 400 meters

***We also want to MAHALO UNCLE KIM AND AUNTY DEB for their service in the US Forest Service as Hotshot firefighters!

Open Gym Reminders....if you're NEW to the gym please review!

One of many goals of expanding the gym is to expand on our services to our existing members. Many of you requested more Open Gym time and we’re listening. We’re happy to announce more Open Gym time available during regular CrossFit classes effective immediately. People who will benefit from this new feature could be athletes who follow a competition program and take 2-3 hours to finish their specialized training, athletes with injuries or conditions that want separate time to work on said conditions, athletes who desire to perform strength work in addition to an All Levels CrossFit class, or athletes who’s schedule might accommodate an Open Gym situation better. We are here for you’re needs, in fact your needs were the driving force of the recent gym expansion. However, the following protocol must be followed in order for everyone to get their needs met and to run a happy house!

Open Gym Protocol:

  • If you’d like to use Open Gym during a CF class you will check in with the coaching staff, ask permission, and let them know roughly what you plan on doing with your time. For example you could say, “Coach Kelsey may I use platform #1 for some Back Squats? Then I was thinking of doing some pull ups on the side.”
  • You shall write you name on the results whiteboard under the day and time you train, next to your name write ‘OPEN’ so we can track attendance.
  • Open Gym participants shall give ‘right of way’ to the class that is regularly scheduled at that time. Open Gym participants shall work around and on the side of the existing scheduled class. Again, check in with the coaching staff. 
  • Platform #1 next to the bathroom, will be the default platform for Open Gym participants because it is out of the way for most CF classes. Open Gym participants will workout around the outer perimeter of the gym. Most CF class participants will use the center areas, but again check in with the coaching staff.
  • Quiet and respectful behavior is acceptable from Open Gym participants. Be aware to remain quiet during all times that a coach is teaching or delivering a lesson to their class. You’ll know a coach is ‘teaching’ if the music is off and they are actively engaging their class in a verbal or visual lesson or demo. 
  • Open Gym participants shall clean up after themselves by wiping down equipment with the water spray and microbial Norwex cloths provided, and return gear to respective areas.

We will do our best to offer Open Gym to all athletes during ALL hours of operation. Hours of operation at present include all class times (see www.crossfitallstar.com/schedule) and scheduled Open Gym times. We are often here during non-scheduled class times so keep that in mind. If any coaching staff is here at the box, the box shall be available for Open gym, but again check in with the coaching staff present to make sure it’s OK. The coach will make the final call. My greatest hope is that we are increasing our level of service so that athletes can move beyond what we were doing in the old space. And by offering more Open Gym time, we intend to do just that.

 

With appreciation,

KC Stallsmith

Cheryl Brost Attempts CrossFit Games Master's Qualifier Workouts THIS WEEKEND

Cheryl Brost displays some of her medals with American Gladiator 'Nitro'
OUR VERY OWN CHERYL BROST WILL AGAIN BE ATTEMPTING TO EARN A SPOT TO COMPETE AT THIS YEARS 2019 CROSSFIT GAMES IN MADISON, WISCONSIN!

I was able to ask Cheryl some questions about her goals, her recent comeback from injury, and how her personal life has affected her training this season. Enjoy the interview below taken by KC Stallsmith, owner & coach at CrossFit AllStar questions to Cheryl Brost, CrossFit Games Athlete and Coach. Mahalo for letting us into your world Cheryl! And if you'd like to spectate during her workouts today and through the weekend here's her schedule (subject to change without notice):

FRIDAY 5/3 11:30am (WOD #5, 6min time cap), FRIDAY 5/3 2:45PM (WOD #4, 8 MIN AMRAP WOD)

SATURDAY 5/4 11:00am (WOD #3, 15min time cap), SATURDAY 5/4 3:00pm (WOD #1, 15min cap)

SUNDAY REST DAY UNLESS NEED TO PERFORM WOD #1 IF NOT COMPLETE ON SATURDAY

MONDAY 5/6 12:30PM (WOD#2 KONA DAY AT CF POHAKU)

 

What are your goals this season including during the Open?: My goal this season is to get back to the 2019 CrossFit Games in Madison Wisconsin.  For this first stage in the Open, I just need to make top 200 in order to advance to the Online Age Group Qualifier May 2-6.  A couple things that are different with the online qualifier this year(which she did, she placed 6th in the WORLD) is that only the Top 10 in the World from each age group from the Qualifier will advance to the Games and all 200 of us entering the qualifier will come in on an even slate (your Open placement no longer holds a placemaker in the Qualifier).  In past years, the Top 20 in the world advanced to the Games.  

What have you overcome since last season?: I have had some big hurdles to clear since last season!  I suffered a season ending injury one day after last years Qualifier (while playing soccer), requiring me to have a complete shoulder reconstruction last June and therefore turning down my invite to the 2018 Games.  Unfortunately we also suffered the loss of my oldest brother Rob in August due to a single vehicle motorcycle accident. My shoulder recovery on the right shoulder has gone remarkably!  However about a month ago I strained or possibly have a partial tear to the infraspinatus on my left shoulder.  I have been resting it and giving it all the time I can to heal leading up to the Open.  Time will tell if the 2019 Games is still a reasonable goal for me!  

How many times have you competed in The CrossFit Games, what years?: This marks my 10th year competing in CrossFit.  Thus far, I have been fortunate enough to get an invite every year to the Games!  
2010-elite individual (13th)
2011- elite individual (7th)
2012-elite individual (15th)
2013- 40-49 but declined due to Achilles rupture
2014- 40-44 (2nd)
2015- 40-44 (4th)
2016- 45-49 (1st)
2017- 45-49 (1st)
2018- 45-49 but declined due to shoulder injury
2019- TBA

If you qualify for the Games this year what are you most excited about by competing in the Games this year that might be different than other years?: If I get the opportunity to return to the Games, I’m most excited about the fact that I came back from a season ending injury at my mature ripe age of almost 48  and compete amongst the best in the world!  And it would be super amazing if I am able  to do this alongside one of my good friends and remote training partner Nicole Abbott! 

What keeps you competing?:  I enjoy the push and drive it takes to train for something like this!  And CrossFit has so much diversity, you never seem to tire of it or never are quite satisfied with all the skills you’re asked to perform!  There are so many things I can still get better at, and that’s what keeps me going!  As well as the camaraderie and friendships created along the way!

I understand soccer has been a passion of yours through college and you received the 1992 NAIA National Field Player of the Year and All-American awards. How has your recent move to coaching High School soccer at your daughter's school and club affected you as an athlete if at all?: I recently had the opportunity to help coach with HPA girls soccer and the upcoming Kona Crush 2003/04 girls soccer team.  I can recall how precious those years were to me and I love being able to give back to the youth in our community.  I hope to share with them what I’ve learned over the years competing on sports teams and in CrossFit and just be there to help them grow and become all that they can be!  And in return, the kids have so much spunk and energy...they inspire me to never grow old and just keep on moving!  

THANK YOU FOR SHARING WHO YOU ARE WITH US CHERYL BROST! You continue to motivate and inspire those around you. We are all honored to know you and Hawaii is proud of you and we look forward to you representing at the 2019 Reebok CrossFit Games this summer in Madison, Wisconsin! GOOD LUCK CHERYL!
