Today we wish another of CFW’s best Goodbye.  Tanner is joining a lengthening list of trainers who have moved on to opening their own facilities.

Tanner has been an integral part of CrossFit Wilmington and will be surely missed.  A constant professional and a leader at heart, Tanner sets a fine example for all of us.  His commitment to and care for our clientele has made him an asset.

While I hate losing him from our staff, I am very happy and proud of him for opening his own facility.  His Austin, TX clients will benefit greatly.  We wish him all the best.
Farewell Brother,

We’ve still a few projects to finish before the new gym is complete.  The showers are priority one.  We will have at least one ready in a few days.   The pull bars, ropes, rings, and other misc. things will be ready in no time!

    Tanner. I had heard this was in the works. Sorry to see you go, but much success will come your way, I’m sure of it.

    No need to thank me for all the Snatch Tips, it’s all part of my giving nature. Stick with it, and one day you may be pretty good at it!

    You will be missed.

    Tanner is leaving?!?!?!? What the @&$# haha just kidding. Tanner, you will be greatly missed. I know your box will be kick ass. Guess I will have to make some trips to TX. Thanks for all of your help on the Oly Lifts. See you at American Open 2013 dude! Best of luck.

    Steve and Sydney….you two are sexy! Nice work on the workout.

    Tanner is leaving b/c he fears me kicking his butt again and again in workouts (Battle of the Bucket rival). Love ya man and I hope you make millions of dollars at your big time gym…and just remember ” THE STARS AT NIGHT ARE BIG IN BRIGHT, DEEP IN THE HEART OF TEXAS.”

    Tanner, thank you so much for keeping me coming back to CrossFit. You were there to answer all of my questions and provide and encouraging word when I needed it. You’re a born leader and a great guy. I’m jealous of your new clients in TX. Please remember your friends here and know that we’ll miss you.

    Dearest Tanner,
    I had no idea that you were leaving, and I just can’t believe that you will not be here any more. I will miss your calm nature, your sincere smile, your patience, your unlimited knowledge and your professionalism. Best of luck to you in Texas. They will be very lucky to have you.
