Lahaina CrossFit is a place where you come to make changes and change your life! Lahaina CrossFit is the ALOHA LIFESTYLE! To be truly “FIT” one must have the 3 necessary lifestyle components working together as one: MIND, BODY, and NUTRITION. Lahaina CrossFit focuses on all three of these components of wellness. Being fit allows you to live life to the fullest! We know being fit “appears” to be difficult on the surface. Many times the confusion of what exercises to do, how to do them, what to eat, and when to eat, is enough to scare most people back into their old, less than optimal lifestyle. Once you learn how to break free from old habits, and experience what a fit body feels and looks like, trust us, you will never look back.

Our Lahaina CrossFit coaches are some of the best around and are here for YOU! We make achieving your goals possible, desirable, and FUN! A few simple lifestyle changes, along with proper coaching, HARDWORK, and COMMITMENT will move you into the right direction! Are you going to be a part of the Movement? Your Time Is Now!

Having been a known gym rat my entire life, I decided to take my passion for strength, sports, teaching and elite fitness to the next level. With that being said, and with the encouragement of my beautiful wife, Janelle, I chased my dream of becoming a fitness professional. I became a certified personal trainer through A.F.A.A, but I didn’t stop there. I am always looking to learn new things which will help make me an active leader in fitness and wellness in our community. I came across CrossFit about 2 years ago. At first I fought the change to start this unconventional yet highly effective fitness regimine. However, I eventually fell in love with what CrossFit workouts provide both physically and mentally. Now, I can’t wait to tell everyone how life changing a healthy, active lifestyle can be! I eventually found myself on a plane to Scottsdale, Arizona where I enrolled in the Crossfit Certification course and received my CrossFit Level 1 coaching certification. One of the best decisions I’ve ever made!
I had been a competitive power lifter for the past 12 years and have earned best lifter honors in numerous competitions throughout the Midwest. I hold some state records that still stand today! The 2011 CrossFit Games open was the first CrossFit competition I had ever participated in and I eventually found myself at Chicago’s Navy Pier competing against some of the nations best CrossFitters in the North Central Regional Finals. I had the time of my life and eventually placed 18th out of thousands in our region. I have pretty much been involved in the fitness industry through either employment, competitions, or personal training for the past 12 years. My true passion is working with young athletes, giving them the foundations of fitness that they can use for the rest of their lives. I also enjoy working with fitness enthusiasst looking to take their fitness to the next level by introducing constantly varied, high intensity, functional workouts known as CrossFit, that will increase their fitness capacity and take them to fitness levels that they never thought they could reach!
Whether you’re just looking to improve your overall fitness and learn a healthier lifestyle, get rid of those extra 10 pounds you’ve always wanted to lose, or you’re an athlete looking to improve your performance on the field, we welcome the challenge to improve your fitness and help you reach your goals! Together through motivation, inspiration, hard work and consistent efforts, YOU WILL reach your fitness goals!

Starting at age 15 I’ve been involved in fitness. Entering my first bodybuilding competition and just a few months later my second, at which I took 1st place in my age group. I had spinal fusion after major accident in 1998. I was told of the importance to stay healthy and fit upon my recovery. Keeping my diet clean and enjoying my new givin life I found staying active wasn’t just about the gym. It was about staying functional.
When I first heard of Crossfit I was very interested. I joined Lahaina Crossfit after my first day of trial, (as they say, “I was hooked”). I was astonished at the belief system they had behind functional movements. It had been everything I was looking for within my abilities. So, in Feb 2019′ I made a choice to take my training a step further and became a L1CF coach.
Through their guidance, support and mentoring Tom & Janelle Ragusa, have really touched my heart and have helped me become the coach I am today. I love sharing with new members as much as long term members who look up to me for advise and call me coach. Come join me and the rest of the amazing coaching staff at Lahaina Crossfit when you visit Maui. We look forward to sharing in the fun, giving out high fives and hugs.
