Seeing the CFO coaches wreath you know you are going to get coaches that are highly skilled, experienced, and believe it or not personable!. We take the already high and accredited CrossFit certification and add several other exacting standards before we let any trainer become a CFO coach. Not only that but many of our Coaches are highly educated and experienced in several areas.

We can not only talk the talk but have names upon names of members that we have helped achieve their goals. Check out our profiles below and say “Aloha” next time you are in the gym!!

Aloha!
After a web session way back in 2003 I found CrossFit and have been loving it every since. Doing things like gymnastics, wrestling, and break dancing growing up CrossFit was an easy fit for me. At the time I was serving in the U.S. Army Infantry as soon a I got out I opened CrossFit Oahu. Coaching and being an affiliate owner have been a blast. Where else would you get to work with kids, grandmothers, Navy SEALS, and world champions all in one day? Everyday I am excited to wake up and make CFO better and better.
Outside of the gym I like to work on different types of art related projects, learn new skills, and travel to other places. If you see me in the say “Hi”!

I was born and raised in Honolulu and went to Farrington High School. I joined the military after college and have been on multiple deployments. On one of those deployments, a fellow soldier introduced me to CrossFit and it instantly changed my life. I’ve been CF’ing ever since and have been a coach for one year. My main focus is to be CrossFt Strong and encourage others to be as well.

I moved to the island in August 2009 from a small town in Northern New Jersey (not the Jersey Shore!). I come from an athletic family, so sports have always been a big part of my life. CrossFit has introduced me to Olympic Weightlifting, which has become a priority in my training. Outside of the CFO Box, I enjoy what the island has to offer outdoors- hiking, swimming, SUPing, and of course lounging on the beach!

Born and raised on the beautiful island of Kauai, moved to Oahu with my best friends and with big goals/dreams in mind things started to come together. Now a Crossfitoahu Coach and having a passion for triathlon life is good, but without Crossfitoahu none of this would have happened. CFO opened new doors, i met great people, and got to train with the best. And its only the beginning.

My name is Jonathan but I’m better known as Jon Boy. I was born and raised on Oahu and have lived here my entire life. I have a lifelong love of all things physiology-related and continue to learn and grow each day.
