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.

INVITING ALL BIG ISLAND CROSSFIT ATHLETES THIS SATURDAY NOV. 23, 6AM & 8:30AM, PHILIPPINE RELIEF WOD AT CROSSFIT ALLSTAR. SUGGESTED DONATION OF $10 OR GIVE WHAT YOU CAN. MAHALO! 


More info:
On November 8, 2013, Super Typhoon Haiyan (locally known as Yolanda and considered a category 5), made landfall in the central region of the Philippines.

The Philippine government estimates close to 600,000 people are left homeless by Typhoon Haiyan and 13,000 injured. The death toll from this devastating act of nature has not stopped climbing and is quickly approaching 4,000. 

On Saturday November 23, CrossFit AllStar will be hosting Philippine Relief WOD (PR WOD). PR WOD will unite folks from around the world in a show of support. We are trying to spread awareness and raise money for current efforts to aid those in need touched by Typhoon Haiyan. We knew we were going to help, it was just a matter of how.

Workout of the Day (WOD) performed in teams of two or solo: 

Typhoon Haiyan had sustained windspeeds of 145 MPH for 10 minutes so our WOD is 10 minutes long.
Objective is to get As Many Rounds/Reps As Possible (AMRAP).
Repetition scheme 11-8-13 (date of typhoon landfall) of three movements. Only one partner working at a time.

Rx WOD
11 Burpee Box Jumps (alternate each rep with partner)
8 Power Cleans @ 145/95# (break up with partner as needed)
13 Toes 2 Bar (T2B) (break up with partner as needed)

Rx Lite WOD
11 Box Jumps (alternate)
8 Dead lifts @145/95#
13 Knee raises

Body weight/Scaled WOD
11 Box Jumps or Step Ups
8 Push Ups
13 Air Squats

The workout is challenging but accessible. We have provided some scaling options to accommodate participants of all abilities and experience levels. If you're new to CrossFit or have never done these movements, there are many other ways to participate and get involved.

WAIMEA CHRISTMAS PARADE!

AFTER 2 YEARS OF WANTING TO DO THIS.... 
CrossFit AllStar will be participating in the 
2013 Waimea Christmas Parade on Dec. 7th
Our Application is IN!
We are looking for participants who can commit to doing this with us!
Heres what we have in mind, and i'm open to other ideas to! :
1. KC's car is currently getting a 'car wrap advertisement' all around the exterior, and can be driven in the parade as the 'Float' with Christmas lights on it, and music playing...
2. Athletes can partner up and carry box jumps and stop every once in a while to perform some jumps, step ups, or jump overs...
3. Athletes can carry jump ropes and perform singles or double unders...
4. Athletes can partner up and carry a light loaded barbell and stop every once in a while to do some cleans and snatches...
5. Uniform of CrossFit AllStar shirts and jackets, with santa hats?
6. Athletes can pass out business cards with a healthy treat attached???
Josh will be in charge of this event as I will be on the Mainland with Cheryl training with her remote coach CJ Martin in San Diego, and Coach Burgner (I'm very excited about this!!). I'm sorry i'll miss this first ever time in the parade, but would love to know who can be involved so we can get a confirmed list of participants together. I'd like athletes of ALL levels, coaches, Kids, Aunties, EVERYONE because it's important that the community understands CrossFit is for everyone!
Please reply to this email if you can participate with us!! Entry fee is a donation of any goods to help our community for the 'Giving Tree Project' in need...Canned goods, diapers, toothpaste, toothbrushes, femenine products, or KTA or Foodland gift cards....to be handed in at the start of the parade.
Waivers MUST be signed for anyone who can participate! Can you!?!?
Let us know!
Mahalo and i'm sorry KC can't be there because it's going to be SUPER FUN and an chance for us to officially be represented in our community!
