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.

10/4/13 Kupuna CrossFit for 80 Years and Up!

-Written by KC

Kupuna CrossFit jewel, Betsy, born Aug. 20th, 1928

According to Besty's daughter, Lisa:

This is my incredible Mama! The story behind this amazing woman's life would have you cheering in the stands! She defines the word "survivor" and is quite adorable too! To think of her doing crossfit at her young age of 85 is simply mind-boggling. Take note, she never leaves home without her clip-on plumeria and lipstick. To know her is truly to love her and I am blessed to be her daughter. Thanks KC for the amazing work you are doing with the Ho'oNani Place, LLC Kupuna.

I forgot to mention she's in the mid range age-wise, of her kupuna group. The upper end of the age bracket is a kind gentleman who is 99.5 yrs old and is every bit amazing and youthful! :o It is truly remarkable and inspirational! Thanks again KC!! -Lisa, Betsy's daughter

Kupuna CrossFit happens each Thursday (with the exception of Oct. 10th!) at 10am-11am at CrossFit AllStar in Waimea, Hawaii. Come by to say hello and meet the Kupuna, or assist with this class! All welcome!
