Aloha Competitive and maybe not so competitive athletes.
It’s been a week since our first Individual CrossFit competition Hawaii State Fitness Championships at Arkaios CrossFit and we had a blast! The energy was pumping and the house was packed! With 107 individuals registered, we officially earned the title of “Largest Individual CrossFit Competition” in the state. Mahalo for all your support, and helping us put on a great event! Additionally, we want to say a big THANK YOU to all the volunteers and judges that worked hard all day! You guys rocked it!
Below are the 6 events that took place in one day! Personally, Event #2: Barbell Cycle was my favorite ;). I just love me some heavy CJ cycles. Our Shakas’ State Champ, Ikaika Pascua, blasted through this event for the RX Males finishing under 4 minutes at 3:59.
Additionally, we heard a lot of great feedback about EVENT #3: CrossFit Combine. Athletes screamed their way through 25 calories on the Ski Erg and then moved onto max rep bench press (225/135). Event leaders for our CrossFit Combine was Jordan Flynn of CrossFit HTF who smashed 16 reps at 225lb of after a 25 cal ski, and Allison Bean of CrossFit HNL, Women’s RX, who scored 9 reps at 135lb.
However, before the day was done, athletes had to survive our version of the CrossFit Games 2233 workout. Athletes had to fight through three, three-minute rounds filled with Bar Muscle Ups, Overhead Plate Lunges, and 155/105lb Overhead Squats. To make things worse, two athletes with the lowest amount of OHS after each round were cut. This made for a grueling workout, where those who wanted to hold onto their podium spot really had to push hard. After the three rounds of miserly, athletes were left laying on the floor overwhelmed with pain and accomplishment.
All in all, the event was a huge success. Congrats to all the athletes who competed. Below is a link to the competition leaderboard.
