Training with CrossFit in the box is good, but applying those CrossFit skills to a real life adventure OUTSIDE the box is even better!
What happens when CrossFit AllStar friends go outside the box and hike to remote Waimanu Valley to camp, play, do yoga, and have fun? Take a look and see...a Waimanu adventure. I don't have the heart to shrink these pictures they are so stunning so enjoy them if you couldn't make it for the weekend trip. Layne, Marta, Chalsea & Keawe all hiked out Friday morning and stayed two nights. Ben & I did a day hike Saturday morning to see the gang, and came back the same day.
Going into Waimanu Valley involves starting in sacred Waipi'o Valley. Hiking up the Z-Trail is only the beginning of several valleys that you must go through in order to get here...Waimanu.
Above: Marta, Chelsea, and Layne make the decent into Waimanu.
Marta, Keawe, Layne, Chelsea, and Bill stop on the train for a snack. Ooooooo is that a non paleo cracker in Marta's hand...
KC and Ben climb the Z-Trail and head over to see our crew.
Camp. Ben takes a break. I eat Marta's beef jerky and dark chocolate. Thanks Marta! Does a campsite get any more beautiful or profound. What a backdrop!
Lovely CrossFit Athletes doing their morning yoga. Right ON! If you couldn't make it this time don't worry, we WILL do it again! As one of my first trainers Keoni told me long ago, "The Island is our gym!". Were doing it Keoni!
