TRANSFORM is the signature fat loss program designed by CrossFit East Oahu owner, Keoni Subiono. Over the course of 12 weeks, you will experience dramatic, visible, physical change. You will learn how to eat to achieve drastic fat loss. You will experience workouts that are as challenging as they are fun! Average workouts (after warmup) are about 10-20 minutes - that's efficiency for you.
Most important - you'll be working with a team of coaches and fellow CrossFitters who will keep you accountable and on the path to your goals. You are never alone when on TRANSFORM. In fact, you're likely to build some of your closest relationships with the CFEO family. They say misery loves company, but the friendships forged on the black mat are even stronger!
Kaizen is the Japanese term for "constant progress" and is the secret to long term TRANSFORM success for the veteran TRANSFORMer. Kaizen consists of personalized nutrition coaching, personal training in a small group (3 or less) setting, and customized lifestyle coaching.

REAL MEMBERS. REAL STORIES.
Before CFEO, I wasn’t fully dedicated to exercising or dieting effectively. The only form of weight training was, "I workout! I have a 24-hour fitness membership...I go whenever I feel like it." The gym wasn’t a fun place, until I was challenged, programmed, and goal-driven upon joining CFEO. This was my first Transform. I went to last season's gala, felt the love, camaraderie, and excitement in seeing results of the Transformers. I was instantly motivated. I wanted to be on the big screen. Starting Transform wasn’t easy. Sacrifices had to be made; plate lunches modified. But I started to visually see results in the mirror. I’d get compliments by others who I haven't seen in a while and became more excited and focused. Shocking your body is a good thing. Switching exercises up, keeping things new and not going stale, was most effective during Transform. My understanding of dedication, strong will, and focus has been more defined having gone through Transform. Like the saying goes, "Don't expect a different result by trying the same thing over again." Change the way you eat, change the way you live, and you will see a new transformation in you. Anything IS possible!
Weeks before my 32nd birthday, I sat in my doctor's office waiting for test results. I weighed just under 400 pounds, was on medication for diabetes, high-blood pressure, high cholesterol andother stuff I think I chose not to remember. i was a single parent of a 2 and 7 year old and my hip was bothering me, my hands were numb and I pretty much felt like crap. Needless to say, I was very useless in the physical activity with my kids department. My doctor walked in and said, "Your x-rays show that you have joint degeneration in your hips and lower back. If you don't do something about your weight, you will need hip replacement surgery in the next 3-5 years." It took me almost a month to process his words and at the end of my stint in denial, I was mortified at the scenarios in my head. Either I wouldn't be around to see my children grow up and no one would take care of them, or they would be stuck an invalid for a mother. The idea of a 400-lb person surviving hip replacement surgery seemed like a pipe-dream to me and there was no way I was gonna go out like that. I started with changes in my diet. After 5 months and 80-lbs, I started exercising. Before I knew it I was waking up at 230amMonday through Friday to go to the gym for 2 1/2 hours, cooking and prepping my own meals and taking better care of myself and trying to break some of the bad food habits I had taught my children.
I've been at CFEO for a 1 1/2 years now and although I'm grateful for the personal growth I've had as a result of starting this journey to health alone, I know it would have been so much better and probably shorter if I had been able to find CFEO years earlier. You can find any number of crossfit boxes here in Hawaii, but our community is THE BEST! I've received so much love and support during my transform seasons and witnessed the support given to others, including my now 17-year old who just finished her first transform season. I'd be lying if I said it was easy - there were so many days when I said "screw this" or "this is stupid" but after those moments of weakness I'd take a look at my kids, tell myself to end the pity party, put my head down and grind on. I started on this road for my kids and now I do this for myself. I have the best people, whom I consider my greatest friends, who I look forward to suffering with every week. What more could you ask for?
Nothing I write here will really be able to do justice to what CrossFit and CrossFit East Oahu (CFEO) have meant to me personally, but I’ll give it a try anyway. What CrossFit offers, and has given me personally, is a way to not only stop that decline, but reverse it. At 41, after almost 3 years at CFEO, I’ve never felt more physically capable in all my life. Running, jumping, climbing, lifting, pulling, and rowing have all improved thanks to CrossFit. Over my TRANSFORM journey I have lost over 60 pounds, dropped inches and body fat while putting on lean muscle mass. While I still have a long way to go (and hope I always do!), and progress is not always as fast and linear as it was in my early days of CrossFit, I still make progress constantly with the help of the great people, both coaches and members, at CFEO.
Keoni, Rose, Joe, Shawn, Julie, Jon, Jason and Cristy are not only amazing coaches, but have become friends who I trust completely. While CFEO is a business, it has always been very clear to me that their primary focus is on helping people get better by providing great coaching and programming in an environment that is welcoming, challenging and inspiring. Not many businesses can claim that kind of relationship with their “customers”.
CFEO is an awesome place, unlike any other gym around, with incredible people all focused getting better, and helping each other get better, regardless of where you are starting from. Thank you Keoni and Rose for putting this place together and continually improving it. I will be forever grateful to CFEO and its awesome CrossFit Ohana for helping me on my path to a healthier life.
When I was in my twenties and in the Air Force I was a fitness fanatic, to the point of becoming anorexic. Fast forward to my fifties. I had gained a lot of weight and had trouble losing it. I made it a point to never feel hunger because of my anorexia. In January of 2014 my husband passed away suddenly from a pulmonary embolism caused by a DVT in his leg. The DVT was caused by inactivity. Several months after his death I found myself at the highest weight I have ever been, 204 lbs. I was depressed, over-weight and soon would be making my son an orphan. I knew I needed to do something. That's when I met Candace. To say she saved my life is not an exaggeration. She put me onto eating healthy and clean, she got me committed to exercising. I lost 20 lbs right away and then stalled. Candace felt I needed to reduce my intake of clean foods and commit myself even more. Then came TRANSFORM. I've always been competitive person and this was right up my alley. I committed to the TRANSFORM program, reduced my intake of food and continued my exercising with Candace. By the end I had lost another 20 lbs or so and have gone from a size 18 in 2014 to a size 10 in 2015. Thank you to Keoni and Rose for having such a fabulous program and thank you to Candace for saving my life. My one last thank you is to Bradley, my personal chef and "not an orphan" son.
