“I started doing Crossfit because of a bump in my career which led me to poor eating habits. I tell everyone that Crossfit Wilmington saved my life. They then ask what the secret is and I reply "Extremely hard work day in day out. There is no magic pill or diet or cream or any of that bulls**t. It’s my mindset. They tell me about the crazy workouts they see online and say that they have to get in shape first! [That’s just backwards!]
WITHOUT CROSSFIT WILMINGTON I WOULD BE DEAD FROM OBESITY OR FROM HEART DISEASE LEAVING MY CRYSTAL AND JACOB WITHOUT A HUSBAND OR FATHER. ASK ME ABOUT HOW THAT MAKES ME FEEL.” – Don O.
"The first time Don came into CFW, my honest thought was I’d never see him again. He was a mess! It wasn’t obvious to me at the time (how could it, he was heaving and spitting and puking!), but Don saw CFW as new challenge. Sometime during that first WOD he made a serious decision to get his fitness, diet, and life back in order. Don’s mental strength, dedication, and self discipline rivals that of any I’ve ever trained with. He’s become a very good friend and role model to me." -t.
