CROSSFIT KAWAIHAE

WHAT IS CROSSFIT?

CrossFit is a fitness program that produces measurable outcomes through lifestyle changes, centered on training and nutrition. Workouts consist of constantly varied, high-intensity, functional movements, and are fun and effective among friends at a local CrossFit gym.

WHAT'S THE HYPE?

There are many reasons why individuals fall in love with CrossFit but a primary source is the community-driven culture that exists within CrossFit. Imagine building the best version of yourself surrounded by supportive, like-minded individuals focused on health, wellness, and 'ohana in an environment that is fun with no judgement attached. That's what CrossFit Kawaihae is all about.

Retiring from gym ownership in 2024, Tammie & Arnold along with their beautiful children, continue to train at CrossFit Kawaihae alongside members that they've guided for years.
