“If everything seems under control, you’re just not going fast enough.”

We have been getting a lot of e-mails from those that saw Elyse compete at the games. A few weeks ago, Joan from Lalanne Fitness, worked out with us at Hardass Fitness. She also competed at the games and is quite the stud herself. This is a copy of an e-mail she sent to us.

Kimo and Hardass Fitness

1) Thank you so much for being so welcoming when I was in Honolulu on business a couple weeks ago! I had such a great time training with you all and as is typical of Crossfit … you were warm and supportive while simultaneously pushing me. If any of you are ever in San Fran, please come train with us at LaLanne Fitness http://www.lalannefitness.com/.

2) You should all be informed that you have a goddess in your presence! Ms Elyse Umeda. What a freaking stud! You all would not have been surprised at her performance, since you train with her every day, but you would have been SO PROUD! I was inspired by the ‘little beast’ as she was positioned in front of me for the muscle-up/clean workout … and she was cruising at a rate double my own! In addition, in representing you all well in the sportsmanship arena … she tracked me down before the competition started and gave me a big bear hug as an introduction. Hugging her is like wrapping ones arms around a brick s&^t house, by the way … pure muscle!

Hope to see more Hardass Fitness athelets in Aromas this July for the Affiliate’s Cup or next spring for qualifiers!

Sincere thanks again!
Joan Greve
