Try Fitness was founded in 1996 by KC Carlberg, an ACE- and ASCM-certified personal trainer, a certified Wellness Counselor, spin instructor, and a USA Triathlon Certified triathlon coach. She wanted to create a fun and supportive environment where women of all fitness levels and athletic abilities can achieve their fitness goals. KC's motto is: "We put the fun in fitness." “This has been an incredible journey,” says KC, “one in which I have no regrets.” “I have had the opportunity to work with 100’s of women of all walks of

life and help them achieve their health and fitness goals. I have seen women create bonds of friendship through our training groups that continue to last over the years. And it has been a thrill for me to see so many women exceed their own expectations and surprise themselves in fantastic physical achievements like weight lose, marathons, triathlons and more. For me, I believe that working out taking care of ourselves on a physical level is the core to transforming our lives.�

Even people in their 60’s or 70’s should just start walking for half an hour or so, but not just one or two days. You have to exercise at least 4-5 times a week. Thank heaven Hawaii has good weather so we can exercise almost every day.

Hawaii Bike Festival 2014

Hawaii Bike Festival 2014

“To kick off 2014, Sandbox Island BMX hosted the first annual Hawaii Bike Festival! A day full of racing, exhibitions, vendors and food! The festival is the collaborative effort of Sandbox Island BMX, MTB Hawaii and in an effort to create an event that would help unite the cycling community in Hawaii. All proceeds of the festival are being donated to Sandbox Island BMX in an effort to improve the facilities and create a venue for Hawaii’s future cyclists.

The festival was a huge success with massive support from local companies and riders. Over 30 companies signed on as sponsors including BIKEFACTORY Hawaii, Santa Cruz Bicycles, Red Bull, Plumbers & Fitters USA Local Union 675, The Outlets of Maui Lahaina, National Fire Protection, Island 98.5 & Island 101.9, Hawaii Photo Rental and many many more. In addition the facilities at Sandbox BMX have already been improved upon with the construction of a new pump track. The pump track is now a permanent fixture and will be used in the upcoming season for Strider events!

During the Festival riders battled all day in the Sprint Eliminator, Pump Track Challenge and Cyclocross races. The biggest crowds gathered to watch the Red Bull Jump Jam where riders dropped off 14 foot high containers and pulled massive backflips on the jump. Sponsor participation enabled raffle prizes to be distributed every 15-30 minutes all day long. The Kalihi Fixie crew even pedaled out to take Best of Show in the Bike Parade! Mahalo to all the sponsors, vendors, volunteers and every one who came out to show their support of cycling. The Hawaii Bike Festival is a go for next year!� Text and all photos provided by Mike Solis,
