Lei Ka’auamo fell in love with CrossFit back in 2008, while stationed at Vance Air Force Base in Oklahoma. Lei comes from a volleyball background and coached club volleyball for Dig It! Alabama and Lanikai Athletics. In February 2012, Lei earned his CrossFit Level 1 and CrossFit Endurance certification. Upon returning from a deployment in the summer of 2015, Lei decided to pop into CrossFit 808 for a class and he has been with us ever since! Outside of CrossFit, Lei loves spending time with his wife Rachael and sons Sage, Kekai and Kalei. Lei is now retired from the Air Force after serving for 22 years and is currently an instructor for the Air Force JROTC at Kailua High School.
