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.

12/5/13 Special Training Session on our Tour: Mike's Gym & Coach Burgener

A very special training session today for CrossFit AllStars Cheryl Brost and KC Stallsmith!

Written by KC- I got to work one on one with the revered Coach Burgener, affectionately known as 'Coach B'. His gym is in his home garage and I've seen it on many videos before, but never knew it looks like a home from Hawaii! See photo above... And his un-obstructsble mountain view is amazing!

He coached us on the main points of the Snatch, and his programming template for optimal training. He even coached us on how to coach each other so when we get home we've got things to look for in each other. Many blessings on this training adventure!!! I'm completely grateful for each opportunity to train with so many high level athletes and coaches on this training tour!


12/4/13 Visit to Invictus Point Loma new location! 



12/2/13 We made it to CrossFit Invictus!


12/1/13 Photo Journal: Russian Weightlifting Seminar w/Klokov, Kahn, Polovnikov, & Durnev

CrossFit AllStar athletes Cheryl Brost, KC Stallsmith, Christopher Matute, and Leihiwa Campbell (teenager who collaborates with CFAS and her non-profit Living in Youth) from Waimea, Hawaii....visit Russian Weightlifters Dmitri Klokov, Vasili Polovnikov, Nikita Durnev, & Yasha Kahn, hosted by CrossFit Oahu. This was one of the first rare opportunities for American CrossFit athletes to train in Russian lifting techniques. Funny thing was, these guys are AMAZING teachers, which I wasn't expecting because not all great athletes can teach what they know effectively. They were assertive, and aggressive in their teaching style, sometimes just plain pushing our bodies physically into position. And the honesty if their criticism was remarkably refreshing! They were never satisfied they always had something for each athlete to correct individually. And if you performed the lift incorrectly they usually shook their head, laughed at you, or simply said ,"No!". They werent the gentlest coaches, but when you want to make serious progress you need serious criticism, and that's a good thing! These Russian theories and techniques are coming back to the box!
