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.

11/14/13 Kupuna CrossFitter Passes - Rest in Peace Alfred, We Love You.

-Written by KC

Alfred Berdon - Kupuna CrossFitter

September 6 1929 - November 14 2013

Alfred Berdon- Started Burdon Farms, as well as Ali’i Boat Makers right here in Kamuela. Alfred built 2,500 boats by hand and attributed his amazing health and strength to climbing up, down, and all around building these boats! Alfred started CrossFit with us at 84 years of age, and when asked at the end of each class what he enjoyed most he would reply...'Everything!'. He was a strong, sweet, and positive spirit in Kupuna CrossFit class each week. Alfred passed away this evening, at home and at peace with his family. We love you Alfred! Our hearts and prayers go out to you and your family.

11/12/13 CrossFit AllStar Round-Up in Waimea, Hawaii BIG ALOHA!

-Written by KC

We thank each and every one of you who came out to the AllStar Round-Up 2013!

Athletes, volunteers, spectators! Mahalo to all of you who noticed how much went into planning this event! It was important to us to honor the athletes, to plan a rocking good time, and to present proper programming that would test your fitness and legitimize all of your training efforts. From the youngest athlete at 5 years old, to the most senior athlete at 99, it proves anything is possible and we're doing just that. Our Big Island CrossFit Community is strong, healthy, and vibrant! Mahalo to Josh Stallsmith who worked on the programming, and can take 100% credit for the beautifully written piece in the Event Finals, '2 Pistols Walk into a Bar...' He worked tirelessly, going over, over, and over different possibilities and combinations and the outcome was 'awe'-some. As much fun to watch as it was to perform. Mahalo to all the volunteers!!!! It was a pleasure to work with all of you!!! And mahalo to the ATHELTES who all ROCKED!!!! It was an honor to have you at our box and witness all of your greatness!!! I have an 'athletic hangover' from the weekend, and I can still hear the crowd cheering in my head! I love each and every one of you. Mahalo for energizing AllStar!!!!!

Type in the subject line 'Round-Up Video'


I hired a film-maker named Chad Campbell, who  got called out to San Fransisco on a job at the last minute. He explained to me that all we need to do is get him some video footage on a high resolution camera like Go Pro or even the latest iPhone, and he'll be able to make something really great. Send him any footage you think might be worth helping to add to an AllStar Round-Up video please!
