Big things in the works at CrossFit Kapa’a. We are pleased to announce that we will be hosting a team CrossFit Competition on June 18th. Location to be determined but stay tuned for details! There will be divisions for all with same-sex teams so start looking for a partner! We are expecting this to be a huge event and proceeds will go to the Boys and Girls Club of Kauai and Mana Olana Foundation (a foundation to help recovering addicts find jobs, learn skills and be positive influences in our community). Mark your calendar for the first annual “Cococnut Cup”!
Secondly, we are full-speed on our addition to the gym! We have started with building the new storage rooms to house more equipment as well as reengineering our new entrance. The front will be used as a chill hang-out before and after class with tons of books, TV, and AC as well as used for our free childcare.
Finally, moving forward into 2016, this newsletter will be changing a bit. We will be sending out the newsletter only once per month. This will give us plenty of time to work on our new projects and events! Although, we may send out random emails with new events that have come up
- Athlete of the Month – Joe Enrique
- Robin and Family Fundraiser – Jan. 23rd 9AM
- CFK Bonfire – Jan 24th 5pm
- New Years Deals!

Athlete of the Month – Joe Enrique
Congrats to your first Athlete of the Month, Joe Enrique! Joe is that smiling guy always pumping everyone else and giving it his all. He was a little shocked when I asked him to be our AOM, saying there are much other capable, stronger athletes in the gym. While we do have some amazing fit people around us, what I look for each month when choosing is the hard-work, positivity and a desire to be better. Joe has all those qualities – coming 6 days a week, showing remarkable improvement in strength and mobility, always fist-bumping when arriving, post-WOD and upon leaving. It’s no wonder everyone agreed with me when choosing Joe this month! Congrats Joe! Read all about him below:
How I was introduced to CrossFit: A friend (Vern) wanted to get in shape before his wedding and wanted to work out together to help keep each other to accountable. He wanted to try Crossfit Kapaa and here I am.
If I never had to do this one exercise ever again, I would be stoked:Overhead squats or full snatches are hard for me but I’m still working on them. Burppies is another one. I would be stoked when I can do these movements with ease and multiple reps doing the RX weights
If I had to makeup my own WOD, it would be: I’ll leave this up to the great coaching staff, they keep me challenged and motivated.
Tell us a little about yourself (family, job, hobbies, etc) Married (31yrs), 4 kids (25-22), Construction worker, part time gardener and now crossfitter.
My proudest accomplishment is (doesn’t have to be CF related): Being married for 31 years would like to see 50
My favorite cheat meal/food is: Anything sweet
What is your favorite song to workout to? Anything 80’s
What I love about CFK is: The workouts are challenging and I like being in a group because it helps me to be accountable.
Something you might not know about me is: Traveled through most of the 50 states.
Robin Avina and Family Fundraiser
As most of you know, Robin Avina, finance Jesse and 7 year old son Ryder, has lost everything in a devastating house fire on Monday Dec. 28th, including their beloved pup, Lulu. As a community, we have already come together to raise money, donate clothes and household items to them but the work is not over! Replacing cars, a house, tools of their trade and everything else used daily costs lots of money. CrossFit Kapaa is honored to hold a fundraising event to raise money for Robin’s family.
The fundraiser will be held Saturday, January 23rd at 9am at CrossFit Kapa’a. Per CrossFit fashion, we will hold a fun workout accessible for anyone including kids, seniors, those with injuries, etc. You don’t have to have CrossFit experience at all and their will be coaches on hand to demo, teach and help you safely through the workout. Donation for this event is $10 but any other donations are greatly appriciated. Kauai Juice Company has donated kombucha to enjoy and there will be small pupus as well! Keep a lookout for flyers coming soon!
CFK Bonfire – Jan. 24th 5PM
Join us for a casual bonfire on Sunday evening, Jan. 24th at 5pm at Kealia. We’ll be on the beach in front of the the last pavilion on the river side of the beach. Bring a east potluck dish to share and drinks. We’ll provide smore’s!
