I dropped in twice this week while visiting in laws from Boston, and fell in love with the atmosphere. The coaches and members were so welcoming and being new to the CrossFit world, they were so helpful with coaching me through the WODS and I was so appreciative of that!
Thanks again for the hospitality! I’ll definitely be back next time I’m in town!

Was able to drop in and take class while in Newport News for work and had a blast! Coach Fe and Stan are super knowledgeable on form and performance and the programming is great. Definitely worth checking out if you are in the area!

I spent years working out trying to see results from hours spent in the gym, only to fail over and over again at achieving my goals. I'm 4 months into crossfit and I'm finally accomplishing the goals I set out 5 years ago. Thank you, Crossfit Hui. Without my Ohana, i don't know where I'd be, you guys make every bad day better and always push me to do my best.

They were very friendly, helpful, but mostly patient. I'm really out of shape, they made sure that I took my time and didn't rush anything. They were very articulate about, and with directions.

I play for a local fast pitch softball team that has been conditioning with crossfit hui for about 5 months now, and since then we have become so much stronger and overall better ball players. The coaches at hui cater to the skills we need to play softball and customize certain workouts to help us. As a team we have hit harder and showed more effort and hustle since we've been training. We have not only become better ball players, but we've become more confident in everyday situations. I absolutely love crossfit and want to continue doing as long as I can! The coaches are more than good, the atmosphere is wonderful, it's a great place to workout and become a better person wether you want to be stronger, faster, more flexible it doesn't matter if you're an athlete or not, crossfit hui is for everyone! I would recommend it to anyone who wants to workout or even other teams who are just need that extra strength training, it's a great place! It only takes a few weeks, if even, to see results! To this day I still get excited to go every time I tie up my shoes and leave because I know when I get back I'll become a better person and athlete one way or another!

I coach a local girls softball team and some of the girls and myself have been conditioning at Crossfit Hui; it has been a great experience. Within just few weeks, the performance of the girls working out at Crossfit Hui increased greatly and they continue to perform at a higher level all due to the training they receive at Crossfit Hui. The coaching staff is absolutely phenomenal and they tailor the workouts to your needs/sport; more importantly, they make you feel like a family.
I'd highly recommend Crossfit Hui to anyone especially teams looking for conditioning and training options that translate into improved results and performance!

One thing I love about CrossFit, whether you are traveling for business or pleasure, you can always count on a CrossFit box being near enough to visit. This box, the owners, the coaches, and the members were all so inviting from the minute I walked through the front door, I was treated as if I were a part of their community and wasn't spared when it came to encouragement and coaching tips. The workout was a killer, and the coach did a fantastic job. The owners were both there for reasons other than coaching my exact class, but remained engaged throughout the warm up and WOD and didn't hesitate to jump in and help provide feedback, tips, or physical support to all member including their drop-in. I can't encourage you enough, whether you are looking for a box to join, or drop-in, this is a wonderful community to sweat with.

A a professional athlete in the sport of track and field "maintenance" is an intricate part of the sport. My experience and the services of "dry needling" and "mobility" at HUI Cross-fit have worked wonders for me. I don't usually believe in a quick fix but that's until walking thru the doors at HUI Cross-fit. The amenities available have helped me a tremendous amount since becoming a professional track and field athlete. At a fair cost with client specific treatment I couldn't ask for anything better than the services I receive once I step through the doors. A great lively atmosphere, with great people not only working hard to their own physical and fitness goals but making themselves available to any and everyone who aims to reach their own!

Thanks to Crossfit Hui I like who I am becoming. Initially, Crossfit was all about physically challenging myself and of course losing weight. I have a relatively short attention span and I tend to get bored with activities that are monotonous and that seemingly lead to nowhere. Crossfit seemed to be the answer. I visited the boxes in the local area and the one box I almost “blew off” became the answer to all I have been searching for and more. I have lost weight, I have more energy, I’m sleeping well, and I’m eating more for fuel versus eating due to stress or boredom. Without a doubt I am physically stronger and continue to get stronger with each workout; the surprise is how much stronger I’ve become mentally and in a relatively short amount of time. Crossfit, particularly Crossfit Hui has been a game changer.
I’m an introvert so the “community” aspect of Crossfit was not a draw for me and in fact was a major concern that I believed would ultimately push me away. However, after my first meeting with Coach Fe, I decided to accept her invitation to visit and observe the next class. During my observation of a Saturday class, each coach introduced themselves to me and explained a little about Crossfit and answered my questions. Most, if not all of the people who were working out greeted me as I watched them sweat (smile). However, what I found most impressive, was first, how attentive the coaches were to the students, and second, how the coaches seemed to actually know the individual needs of each student. Finally, the participants were in varying levels of physical fitness, ages, and came in all sizes. Admittedly, the class looked intimidating but I was very intrigued so I decided to sign up for a week of onboarding with Coach Fe.
Onboarding is designed to ease a beginner/novice into Crossfit and serve as an opportunity for the coach to personally assess and assist you with your fitness goals. For example, nutrition is discussed; proper technique is introduced, stretching, and terminology is taught (Crossfit has its own language). Please do not for one minute think this is a cakewalk; you will work during this week. After onboarding, you are ready to join the rest of the class.
Do not be alarmed, all workouts can be scaled or tailored to the ability of the participant. You are, however, expected to work as hard as you can work and put out your max effort. You will soon come to realize that you are your main competition. To this day, I nervously enter the box prior to each workout and each time I successfully complete a WOD I leave feeling like a champion. I am often amazed at what I am able to accomplish physically if I just turn my mind off. The coaches while ever present seem to always know just when (that moment your mind begins to fill with negative thoughts) to provide that extra bit of encouragement to help you get over the hump. Initially, I would worry about finishing last, no worries, no one cares, they only care that you are safe and that you finish. As a matter of fact, they will cheer you on until you finish! I dare you to find that camaraderie at a traditional gym! You can’t, I win!
The last thing I want to share about Crossfit Hui is the concept of Accountability. Unlike traditional gyms, where your presence or lack of will not be noticed, your absence at Crossfit Hui will be noted. You will be missed and contacted. Admittedly, when Coach Fe mentioned this to me during our first or second meeting I sort of blew her off. Well, I missed a few classes (legitimate reason) within the first few months of signing up and lo and behold she made contact. The coaches know your preferred days to work out and get used to seeing you on those particular days…so they notice when you are not present for duty. You may also be pleasantly ribbed by fellow Crossfitters about your absence should you decide to skip a work out or three. It’s all out of love…the concern comes from a good place.
Ultimately, it’s up to you! If you commit to YOU...Crossfit Hui and the Coaches are the support team to die for...Good luck!

It's more than a gym, it's a family, the coaches are great people with an emphasis on training correctly and really care about your individual goals.
Kimberly August 8, 2016
Crossfit HUI is more than a work out .. It's a family, a hobby and a place to hang out. Often times a Crossfit box will feel stuffy and cliquey .. No such thing here. Immediately I felt welcome and included. The coaching is top notch and you can tell that both Fe and Stan are passionate about their love for fitness. All the other coaches are also very helpful and extremely knowledgeable. Working out at this box made me want to keep going. I'll be a member till I leave the Peninsula!
Jess June 21, 2016
I can't recommend this gym enough. The coaches are great as well as all of the other people here. Even if you aren't sure, I recommend giving it a try. I've been coming here a little over 6 months, and I feel like I am always learning something new and improving. There are always plenty of coaches to give you feedback and help you reach your best at each class. Best part of the day!
Holly January 18, 2016
This place, these people make getting healthy and strong fun and doable. Even for the 50 somethings like me. I don't know why I waited so long, Crossfit is amazing and these coaches are the best!
Lesa January 17, 2016
I just finished my first month at Hui. After being at another box for over 3 years there is always trepidation about change. The change has been great for me. Right away Coach Fe made me feel welcome and she was glad I was there. Coach Stan and Ami have very helpful and make things fun. The morning crew has accepted me (I think) and I am enjoying getting to know them better. Coach Fe has tweaked some of my movements which has been very helpful. This place is special. If you are thinking about giving Xfit a try this is the place to do it!.

Amanda April 11, 2015
The coaches and athletes are just as awesome as the workouts. I learned to enjoy putting stress down and throwing weight up while having an awesome time getting to know the people I do it with at Hui. And I've never been to another box/gym. This is my first, the bar is set high.

Before i even reached the door i was greeted by a member of Crossfit HUI in the parking lot who was so very friendly and welcoming and informative. Within minutes of meeting Coach Fe i knew this was going to be a great fit for me! The coaches are very knowledgeable and focus on form, which is a big thing for me. With all the negative rumors on crossfit in relation to poor form I was ecstatic to find a location that proved those naysayers wrong. You walk into Crossfit Hui and you're welcomed with open arms. Your day could have been horrible and hectic and as soon as you enter the box is fades away. Every day you're challenged and motivated, it's pretty fantastic.
April 3, 2015
Crossfit Hui actually cares what you are doing and how you are doing in the box and outside of the box. They help me everyday achieve my goals and the environment makes me want to be there as much as I can be.
April 3, 2015
The coaches at Crossfit HUI made it very easy for someone like me who had ZERO lifting experience to feel comfortable and WELCOME. For that I am thankful
April 3, 2015
Keep up the awesome work. You've made me love CrossFit again and I'm sure you'll do the same for others!
April 3, 2015
Thank you for a great experience where all levels of athletes are welcome and challenged. I tell everyone I know to come check out Hui! I can't imagine working out anywhere else!

Ashley December 28, 2014
Stopped in today just to meet the owners and trainers and see the box. Was watching them do some Olympic Lift progressions, each one stopped their workout to come shake my hand. Will be signing up this week. The welcoming spirit and energy is amazing there.
Iron Will July 18, 2014
I can already tell that this is going to be my new home away from home. The coaches and people are amazing, and after just a few short days of going, I know in my heart that I've found an extension of my family.
