I started when Kokua opened as a complete newbie to CrossFit. I am in my 50's and was intimidated by all the terminology and many of the workouts. Coaches here are motivating and patient. Many of the exercises have been modified for me as I progress. I went to basic gyms before this and just didn't push myself anymore. People in this environment encourage each other with high fives and "good jobs". Coaches are always watching to make sure you have proper form to avoid injury. Highly recommend Kokua! It is not boring in any way!!! More...

I dropped in for a day to do Open workout 18.1 today, thanks to one of my former baseball players, who trains at CF Kokua. I have nothing but great things to say about the people there! Vanessa was the coach who greeted me and welcomed me as one of their own. She took the time to ask me my CF history and if there was anything I had questions about. The Kokua family was nice and welcoming ... anyone would be lucky to be a part of it! Thanks for having me! More...

This is the kind of crossfit gym to look for! Don't get tricked into paying someone who went and started a gym with a crossfit lvl 1 cert. Go to this gym and take advantage of Coach Joe's extensive education Olympic weightlifting and kinesiology! I've had questionable training at some gyms but nothing but good challenges and consistent results working with Joe! More...

I hadn't worked out in over a year and kept resisting my wife's suggestions on starting CrossFit because of the negatives she kept experiencing at her last two boxes.

Kokua is different, from coaches who approach training scientifically and watch their trainees closely to a no drama will be tolerated attitude. You know from the first workout Joe is serious about having the best box around. The veterans discount made it affordable too.

Kokua is a great place to Crossfit! The coaches are friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and fun. I appreciate the gradual progression of the exercise that the coaches are able to lead me through. I have been coming for a couple of weeks and I can definitely feel my body transform! More...

Hands down, one of the best coaches I have ever had the chance to learn from. During my Military career, I have moved around and joined different CrossFit gyms. I went to Joe's grand opening of his new gym, CrossFit Kokua, to see what he had to offer. He's a beast himself, but also he knew the proper way to lift. His knowledge about the fitness material was astonishing. He would find the correct weight for you, teach you how to perform the movement in order to not hurt yourself. I couldn't have asked for a better coach. Great job on the opening Joe and I'm sure you're going to go far. Thank you for the opportunity to join your gym. More...

We couldn't have asked for a better box to visit on vacation. After researching about a dozen different CrossFit facilities in the area, we decided on this one and I'm so glad we did. The members are welcoming, the box is very clean, they have the best equipment, and Coach Joe and Vanessa were amazing! We will definitely be back anytime we are in the area. More...

Cross Fit is the most challenging, fun and rewarding exercise program I’ve ever tried. I’ve found it to be way more effective than personal training at other gyms, not to mention way less expensive. Joe and his entire staff are all extremely knowledgeable, friendly and encouraging. I’ve been pleasantly surprised at how much personalized attention all of the coaches are able to give each member during group classes. And the sense of community and encouragement from other members has been amazing. I can’t recommend Crossfit Kokua enough. More...

At 55 years of age I chose to try Crossfit. I made the commitment to join solely because of Crossfit Kokua, owner/coach Joe Donar and the other amazing coaches.

Kokua is a community of support, challenge, pain and sweat; and thy all work together to make this “Life Changing”. What you can accomplish here at Kokua will blow you away. You just have to start.

The Kokua team and members will be with you the whole way. In 3,2,1 GO!

I've been doing CrossFit for 2 years and I still consider myself a newbie. Coach Joe has the patience to walk me through the movements, and does it with good humor. CF Kokua is a beautiful facility and so clean. I've visited many different boxes and this one is welcoming and, did I mention, clean? I can't wait to go back. It's about 35 minutes from my house and it's worth the drive! More...

I'm am loving CrossFit Kokua!! I am half way through the 6 week New You Challenge and seriously considering continuing on after this is over. I love that every time I walk into the gym, I don't know what to expect. You never get bored with a workout because it's always something different. Coach Scott is great, he gives modifications for exercises that are challenging and makes sure your form is right so you get the maximum benefit no matter what your fitness level. Not to mention the coaching he gives on nutrition and a healthy lifestyle. Definitely a 5 star program! More...

Having watched my wife deal with gym drama and inattentive coaches at another CrossFit box I was reluctant to do CrossFit at all. When we found Kokua we new we had the right place. Joe and Scott actually take the time to ensure you are doing the movements correctly and approach training scientifically. They also won't put up with drama and encourage the type of supportive environment CrossFit is supposed to be about, so it's a great place to work out without the thought others will judge your ability.

If you can commit to making yourself better and aren't afraid to sweat you won't find a better place to go. Support a local veteran owned business, get fit, make new friends, shock yourself with what you can do. Stop in a class and check it out, you'll get hooked.
