Josh Edwards, CFW’s GM, runs the daily operations at CrossFit Wilmington. He’s overall responsible for the excellent training and fluid scheduling you guys only know as the efficient way CFW works.
Josh also oversees and coordinates the mentoring and training of our staff. Just getting a CrossFit certification doesn’t make you CFW Instructor material. It’s a lengthy process before one of our instructors ultimately earns the title “Primary Instructor”. We follow a “Train the Trainer” methodology. CFW’s process for developing our Instructors far exceeds that of most CF Affiliates.
First and foremost, our instructors display excellent leadership skills and the understanding of our CrossFit and Olympic Lifting Programs. Then they are invited to join our staff. They all start as interns and must be physically one of our best. Our instructors set the example and can post top times on the boards at any CF world wide.
As interns they attend classes as a student; listening and absorbing our PI’s techniques and styles of teaching. After a minimum one month as interns, they move up to Assistant Instructor.
As AIs they begin teaching classes alongside one of our Primaries. Only after 3 months of being an AI and showing all the attributes required to be a CFW instructor, are they are promoted to full on, CrossFit Wilmington Instructors. It’s our way of insuring our members are getting the highest quality, most consistent fitness instruction anywhere.
