Competition Club at Santa Cruz Beach

NorCal CrossFit Competition Club @ Santa Cruz.

I have been going to Competition Club every Saturday morning.  In a nutshell, we usually meet at our San Jose location to do some crazy workout Taz programmed for us.  However, last weekend, Taz spiced it up a bit and had us meet at a beach in Santa Cruz for a WOD on the beach!

CrossFit Ewa Beach - New Spot!

CrossFit Ewa Beach's new 10,000sqft location!!!

After catching up with Se and Noel Famy at the NorCal Regionals, and hearing about their new, upgraded location, I decided to make the drive out to Kapolei to check out the real deal, in person.  Noel and Se own CrossFit Ewa Beach in Kapolei, Oahu.  Though I guess they are called Kapolei Strength and Conditioning now.  It's been awhile since I last visited, mainly because it's quite far from where I stay, so I am glad I made the visit.

My first reaction: HOLY BALLS, their new location is fricken sweet!  All new Rogue, everything, and in high quantities. Any CrossFitter/gym owner/fitness whore's dream.  When I was there two weeks ago, they were still in transition.  They had a lot of equipment set up already when I was there, but also a lot still at the old location or in boxes.  I cannot even imagine how much more sweet their box is now.

NorCal Regionals - Individual

Jason Khalipa, 2012 NorCal Regionals winner!

This was my second year attending the NorCal Regionals and this year was even more amazing to watch than last year.  Not just because NorCal is stacked, or how ridiculous it was to watch Jason and Neal alternate between first and second place for each workout, but also because there was a lot of representation from NorCal CrossFit in the individual division: Jason, Neal, Alex, Miranda, Jackie, and Garrett (Pat qualified too but was out due to appendicitis).  Their performances were really, really impressive.  I think the workouts in Regionals this year were on the heavier end so it was also really inspiring to watch some of the smaller ladies like Annie Sakamoto and my home girl, Elyse Umeda, dominate the workouts.
