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.

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!
We are planning a “Congratulations Elyse” get-together on Friday night after the last class (7:30ish) and members, friends & family are invited. We will post more information tomorrow.

Hey y’all. I’m sure you’ve been following the trash talking fool leaving douchebaggish comments about Elyse on the main. Clay,her judge, rectified the situation but I can’t help but be bothered that some fool would go and do that. To say he “lost respect for her”…WTF is that? I’m all riled up over that fool. I personally am not surprised that Elyse was able to turn a negative into a positive. Even though the first couple didn’t count she still pulled the train into the third. Anyone who really KNOWS Elyse knows that she would never cheat intentionally. She didn’t do it in Elementary school, she didn’t do it in College. What makes people think she’d cheat now?
To Elyse: when you get to where you are their will always be haters. I think you should keep doing what your doing and let the haters stand on the sidelines while you get in on the Games. Hooyah!
