To start, I would like to just say thank you Tony, to you and Julie for all the help you gave me, when I started Engage and after I was open. It was really a huge help. Thank you, not only for the support you gave me but also taking time to teach me the in’s and out’s of it and also for the Oly coaching and coaching techniques.
I have learned a great deal about coaching and business from you and the CFW staff. I’ve been very fortunate to have your support. It’s no wonder why CFW enjoys the success it does. Tony, it starts with you and trickles down through your staff and creates an atmosphere that others want to be a part of.
Your generosity as an affiliate owner is what I try to embrace and continue to practice now that I have relocated Engage to TX. Since we’ve know each other you have been a great friend and mentor; thank you for all you have done.
In the Military we have many goodbyes… you get used to them. You or they leave, deploy, transfer… whatever the case, but you are friends for life. You may not see them for 10 years (we’ve a saying, “All roads lead to Fr. Bragg”), but you’re as good of friends as the day you last saw each other.
Last week we said good bye to Gabriel Kurcyn, Corpsman, Wounded Warrior, and owner of CrossFit Engage. Because life circumstances Gabe decided to relocate CrossFit Engage to Texas, his home and his family’s home. We enjoyed our time training with Gabe and participating in the growth of CrossFit Engage. It was a pleasure to help get another reputable affiliate started in Wilmington. And CrossFit Engage introduced us to Tracy and Keith of Port City CrossFit and ultimately brought all the CrossFit Affiliates together at Tower CrossFit’s pool WOD and Port City’s grand opening.
While we’re sad to see Gabe and CF Engage move, we are happy things are working in their favor in the big state of Texas.
From all of CFW… Godspeed to ya Bro.
Until that day,
Today is the day! 20 CFW members are in Durham for the 2nd Annual Carolina CrossFit Challenge. We go there for fun, cameraderie, and competition. We’re going to have a blast and show the Carolina Affiliates what CrossFitters in Wilmington are all about. We’ll keep you posted on the todays events on the comments and Facebook.
