Level 1 Instructor
My name is Dawn Hutchison I started CrossFit back in 2008. I had a more unique start to my CrossFit experience. I learned everything in more of a personal training sort of way, which I’m incredibly thankful for. I learned deadlifts along with overhead squats to more technical things like snatches within a couple of months of starting. Tony gave me proper instructions to execute these lifts, and maybe without knowing how to teach as well. I found myself quickly wanting to help the other clients with the knowledge I had acquired. About 6 months after I started I went to get my Level 1 certification so I was able to start teaching the clients.
Crossfit Wilmington not only has made me physically stronger but also a mentally stronger person. CFW has taught me discipline, health awareness, and that hard can pay off. It has given me more confidence to strive to do things I didn’t think were possible. Not just in the gym, but has put more drive in having a better path in life.
I have a bachelor’s degree from UNC-Wilmington, in Psychology. May 2014 I will have completed my associate’s degree in Surgical Technology. In hopes, in the future of continuing on to Physician Assistant school.
I have qualified for the CrossFit Games 3 times: once as an individual and twice with a team.
