August makes 11 months for me at CrossFit Wilmington. Before I began CrossFit, I wasn’t a “work out” person. I made sporadic visits to the gym at school but never stuck to any kind of programming. So, CrossFit was intimidating to say the least. My first time in the gym, I came with my friend Jordan (most of you know her from the front desk) and watched as the class did half “Murph.” I sat, probably with my jaw on the floor, until Josh had me get in a band and try some pull ups. I left thinking, “maybe I can do this after all…sign me up!”
I’ve had nothing but great experiences during my time at CFW. Participating in WODs with such wonderful, encouraging peers and instructors has kept me coming back again and again and has motivated me to give my all for every work out. The vast knowledge and excellent teaching skills of every instructor at CFW have aided me in coming father than I ever thought I would! In the last couple months, I reached two major goals: I finally cleaned over 100 pounds and completed my first WOD with no bands (Fran).
I’m so appreciative of the time I’ve spent here and I’m going to miss the gym and everyone in it! Thank you everyone for the time, instruction, and encouragement. I’ll be back for a drop-in as soon as I can visit Wilmington again.
