“Ohana” means family and with organizing this Throwdown we would like to emphasize this particular factor of our community, because we believe that CrossFit is not just about running fast, lifting heavy weights, getting tired and breaking records… it’s also about being social, about bonding with your fellow athletes, it’s about integrating and motivating each other in the gym and beyond. Because when it’s really hard and the shit hits the fan … we leave no one behind! That’s CrossFit, that’s Ohana !
The story behind our logo.
We believe in the idea behind the phrase ‘Ohana’. Ohana comes from the Hawaiian language and culture. Therefor our logo contains a Hawaiian symbol. To be precise, a tribal shark symbol from Hawaii. Hawaiian tribal designs symbolize religious devotion, rites, bravery, status, ranks and heritage. There are a variety of symbols used in Hawaiian tribal symbols that possess different meanings. As per the fact, sharks resemble a powerful creature and are considered sacred. It is a symbol of protection to the wearer. And protection is what all of us need from time tot time. Whether in real life or in a CrossFit Throwdown. That is also what we think ‘Ohana’ brings. When the going gets tough, you can always count on your (CrossFit) friends and family
