Proudly serving local and military members the Aiea area since 2012!






Hi! Christine Choy here, except most people know me as Choy. I was born and raised in Aiea, homeschooled K-12, went to college for Film: Cinema and Media Arts with a minor in Bible at Biola University. After graduating, I moved back to Oahu for CrossFit Zeus! After getting into CrossFit in California, one of my dreams was to open a CrossFit gym. CrossFit Zeus made that dream happen. I enjoy competing in weightlifting and CrossFit competitions, playing ultimate Frisbee, spikeball, and anything with a little bit of friendly competition.

Hi, it’s Karissa Stratton! I was born and raised in Florida and have spent all of my adult life moving around the US due to my husband’s military career. I have been doing CrossFit since 2012, and fell in love with the sport + community. I became CrossFit Level 1 certified in 2020 and have enjoyed coaching since. I joined CrossFit Zeus in October 2021 and am so thankful to be part of the welcoming, family-like atmosphere that this gym offers! I love breaking down workout strategy to help athletes get the most out of their workout and push to new limits. When I’m not coaching or working out, you can find me exploring one of the many hiking trails or outdoor activities this island has to offer with my husband and 2 kids. I also have a Bachelors degree in Dietetics with a minor in Sports Nutrition, so I can talk food all day long!
