Bringing Island Vibes Stateside

My wife, Natalie, and I met at a small CrossFit gym in Kailua (Oahu). We challenged each other to be better partners and athletes every day. It was an easy decision to become part of the CrossFit movement and make careers out of challenging others to realize the healthiest version of themselves. In 2014 we became part owners of CrossFit Waialua on the North Shore of Oahu.

 

The North Shore Crew was cool, laid-back and tight-knit. They helped us understand how important it is to train in an Ohana (family) environment. We knew we had something special and wanted to share it.

 

In 2015 we left our home in Hawaii and journeyed to Southern California. We were fortunate to attract professional coaches and stellar members who also saw the Ohana culture as essential, and we’ve been running together ever since.

 

In 2019, after four years of growth and learning here in North County we took a step back and realized that we had become way MOA (Pidgeon for “more”) than we could have ever imagined, and we became MOA Fitness.
