    The first rule of Crossfit is never shut up about Crossfit, right?  Well, it is hard to not give credit where credit is due.  Since joining Crossfit in the fall of 2013, I have made a significant transformation, not only on the outside, but the inside as well. My entire life I have been a […]

    By cody | In Articles, Successes, Training | on June 16, 2014

    Growing up I was active for the most part. I played outside, played baseball with the boys, I was a cheerleader for a bit, joined soccer teams and ran cross country. I’ve always tried to be active and be outside but as life happened I fell off the wagon. I wasn’t happy with myself physically […]

    By cody | In Articles, Successes, Training | on April 2, 2014

    My success story might sound familiar. I was athletic all my life, wanted a new challenge, found crossfit, happily ever after. Just kidding. My success story is personally more about the strength I found -not physically, but emotionally and mentally. I came to Crossfit Wilmington after achieving what I considered my biggest athletic accomplishment to […]

    CFW and Community I’ve been around the ‘CrossFit community’ for about a year now. That’s not to say that I haven’t ever trained or worked out, but not since the military have I been part of such a tight-knit group of people who are essentially bonded by mutual suffering and sacrifice. CrossFit training, in its […]

  • Ashleigh’s Success

    By cody | In Articles, Mindset, Successes | on August 31, 2013

    Growing up, I was always bigger than all my friends but used the excuse that it was just body type. Once college started, I became more active and started calorie counting, dropping 15 or so pounds. I maintained that weight for years, but still wasn’t happy with what I saw. In January 2013, a friend […]

    By cody | In Articles, Successes, Training | on August 21, 2013

    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 […]

      12 Weeks… I’ve always been in the “average” category when it comes to body type and fitness level.  “Normal” weight, “standard” body fat percentage, not skinny but not fat, not weak but not strong…just “average”. 12 weeks ago when Crossfit Wilmington started the ‘Beach Body Weight Loss Challenge’, I thought to myself, “…sure…why not…I’ll […]

      It’s important that you know of the good you’ve done for me. Some members are aware of the issues I’ve had with my arm. It’s been a long bumpy road that I have been on for years. The pain, meds, and disappointment had me pretty banged up. A new-to-me doctor assured me that he […]

    In November, I enlisted in the United States Navy, set to leave on May 14th, 2013. I weighed 177 pounds. When I joined I was over my weight regulation for my height (160 pounds), but because my body fat was under 30% they let it slide. Christmas happened and before I knew it I weighed […]

    I used to be one of the “elliptical women” at the gym who never lifted weights. When I joined Crossfit this summer, I was one of the weakest (probably the weakest) person in my classes. I always used the 15 lb barbell – what I called “the baby bar” – instead of the regular-sized barbell […]

    My Crossfit Success Story doesn’t read much like most of the others I’ve read so far, which makes writing it a little tricky. I wasn’t fat, unhealthy, or inactive when I started. I played rugby for the three years while I was in college in Chapel Hill, doing two-a-days about three times a week, and […]
