StarNews: What prompted the changes in your lifestyle?
Brad: My twin babies, Copley and Colton, became toddlers this year. Once they started walking, it was off to the races. I knew I needed to get in shape, not only to keep up with the toddlers but also my two other boys, Caleb, 10, and Cooper, 4. I know it’s necessary to stay in shape because all of my children need a healthy, active and attentive father.

    Honestly, Crossfit Wilmington is THE best workout gym/box!!! So proud to be associated with a quality-first organization and fitness family!

    What wasn’t in the article was that joining CW was a major component of my original goal. In late February I did the CW Intro class and realized if I was serious I had to lose major poundage (I was Fat Sick and Nearly Dead!) – so I focused on diet first. But my goal was always to get to a point where I could go to CW consistently because I knew it worked. In hind site, I could have done both, because they scale every workout, but, everyone has their own row to hoe. And whatever works – diet, research, mistakes, injuries, experimentation – the goal is the most important thing and, for me, that is striving for health and respecting the (only) bodies we have for this life.

    I love that CW is designed to give you fitness to enjoy other sports, activities, play, and everyday life – it’s key to a healthy and full life! Plus, I have no desire to be just a gym-rat! I’m learning to surf now too!

    Shout out to my early morning com padres – you won’t find a more dedicated bunch!! See you tomorrow morning…

    Thanks Brad. We are very proud to be part of your success… but like I tell everyone, CFW supplies the heavy stuff, the building and the instruction. You guys supply the atmosphere and motivation!
