Rowing Clinic this Saturday
Kyleanne Hunter, champion rower and accomplished endurance athlete (full bio on Sunday’s post) is kindly giving a rowing clinic this Saturday, 21 Feb from 11am – 1pm at CFW.  It’s no cost, and the benefits will be great.  Come join us.

Hey Tony,
I hope all is well and your staying safe as posssible. Also thanks for bringing Crossfit to Wilmington. I have been improving every week and at this rate I will be in the best shape of my life for my 40th B-day in Oct. Thats the best gift I could ever hope for. I have learned alot about what to eat, proper form, footwear, and how to train; so I wanted to thank you and everybody else at Crossfit for their commitment to excellence.
If you want more you have to do more.

    Tracy; glasses aren’t at the bottom of a wine glasses.. As you and juju may think.. lol.. And for those of you who haven’t seen it, Taken is a movie to watch.

    Taken is pretty good. All you ladies and those of you with ladies you love should watch it. But only up until the girls are kidnapped. Because in real life, that's where the story ends.

    Way to go Gene! We’re not alone in speculating on the ’09 games format. Some interesting ideas (SWAGs) surfaced @ CF Oakland: “Real-life stuff (sorta) like the Firefighter competition or contrived stuff like the World's Strongest Man,” “coal shoveling for time,” “some sort of sandbag stacking project, and something to do with ammo cans and logs,” or my favorite: “crossfit games 2009 "revenge of the day laborer"”

    Now T- we all know if some retard grabbed JuJu, It wouldn't end there for you.. You would be that guy but also 3x as bad, i.e. looking for their dead grandma, and crap. lol

    Hey charlie, did you register for the Qualifier? Ok listen up "EVERYONE" I know alot of you think that you wouldn't do great at the qualifier or the games; Which could be very true but to test yourself against some people who have been crossfit longer than you, and beat any of them in it's self is a huge accomplishment. It's like when we did the Kure Beach Tri, I had never done a Tri before and decide to do it What T 16 days before it? WE went out there and and not only did i beat people who have been doing that Race for years but I also did better than I wanted too. With only 16 days to get ready for it. 1 I was happy I did do it, 2 was shocked when people had asked me how long I was doing tri's for and the look on their face when I said hmm is was my 1st and had only 16 days to get ready for it. CFW has pushed and pushed us all to a higher level than most other CF gym, So why not go to the race (Qualifier)? Test yourself… It's like our new shirt say's Know thyself, Prepare for Life..

    Olympia, You are an artist. A genious even… you captured everything I love about her. The photos are simply phenomenal. If any of you want photos taken of anyone or anything you find dear, ask Olympia. If you need proof of her work, ask to see the photos she took of Julie.
