Crossfit Wilmington is a drop of facility for donations to the Toys for Tots program.

The mission of this program is to provide toys for children of families in need and has been around since 1948. To donate bring a new, unwrapped toy to CFW and place it in the box in the lobby. Donations can be made until December 14th



CFW/WSC members have showed much care in bringing joy to the lives of children this holiday season. The Adopt-An-ANGEL program was a huge success, bringing in all of the the listed items plus more! The Toys for Tots box is starting to get full also. We are still accepting donations for the program until December 14th.


The ladies Christmas party was a huge success this past Saturday evening. Over 30 ladies showed up to the gathering to meet fellow CFW/WSC members, exchange gifts and recipes, and celebrate the holiday. The events organizer, Melissa Hoff, wrote about it below.

“On Saturday evening, we had a Ladies’ Health Holiday Party.  There was a great turn out with loads of healthy snacks, a chemical free product gift exchange, shopping with Drift boutique and the culmination of our adopt-an-angel gift gathering project.  I just wanted to take a minute to express my gratitude for all those that purchased gifts for the four children chosen from a lcoal adopt-an-angel Christmas tree.  During the hectic holiday season, you went out of your way to purchase a special gift for a child that would probably have received very little for Christmas this year.  I laughed when I spoke with one member (Alicia) when she assured me that she would have her gift to the gym by December 8th.  She was having trouble finding that “perfect” gift for her chosen child.  It was refreshing to see how she was taking so much effort to find the gift to make a child smile on Christmas morning.  I’m humbled by all your generosity, generous with your time as well as your money.  Four children will have happy Christmases because of you.  Thank you.”

    Melissa – thank you and Jana (and everyone else who helped) for organizing such a great party! It’s amazing how just a few dollars each pooled together can make such a big difference for those children. While last year’s party won’t soon be forgotten, this year’s really captured the spirit of the season and I can’t wait to carry the tradition on.

    For those who wanted to contribute, but couldn’t for one reason or another, the Toys for Tots bin is still in the lobby and has plenty of room left in it. Lets fill it up!

    This wod looks like fun, can’t wait to hit it tomorrow!

    So imagine being a kid whose parents, for whatever reason (and with this economy there are many), cannot provide a decent Christmas (or whatever holiday your religion supports [that’s for you Jeremy])… you wake up on that holiday morning and you’ve nothing in your stocking or under the tree (or whatever symbol you have to represent your holiday). So that would suck right?

    Not as bad as when you return to school after the holiday vacation and all the other kids are comparing the cool stuff.

    Buy a $10 toy or a decent (NOT WALMART!) and put it in the Toys For Tots box and make some child happy for a day.

    Sorry for the lame attempt at PC and the guilt trip.

    Chrissy, It’s lame to do a 1RM in the cycle we’re in now, especially 12 hours before a heavy Isabel for that one team member. That being said I haven’t dropped a grand on a multiple choice exam, I’m just using common sense. And I know Isabel is 30reps but if you can hit 20reps why stop?

  4. t. says:

    Nate has a point (even though he may be whining it. ha)… I’ll let you guys roll with the 1rm. However, I will note a 2, 3, or 5 rep max is much safer. Either way, be cautious, get a good lift but remember our 1 rule… do not get hurt.

  5. Albert Steed says:

    Wow, today was a hell of a workout.

    Good luck to the two teams going at it tomorrow.

    t – Not sure if you saw it but, Team 4 is wanting to challenge Team 9 at 6:15. Not sure if that is per the rules or not since those two are doing the 1RM at 6:00. But, Aaron tossed it out because they are hedging to lose one and win one I think. 😉

  6. Chrissy says:

    Okay, in the interest of safety, I’ll concede to revising the challenge to a 3RM.

    Regarding doing deadlift right before a heavy snatch, I wouldn’t say that lacks common sense at all, but is rather chocked full of strategery! Your team doesn’t have to have the same person dead lifting as will be snatching. Further, one might argue that it is frivolous to counter-challenge with a snatch wod on the eve of a snatch wod.

    Either way, team 9 will be bringing it!

    All I can say is wow! I moved away two years ago and I just came back to Wilmington a week ago and I am so thankful to everyone at CFW for opening their arms and making me feel right at home. It is an awesome feeling to be surrounded by such great instructors and incredible athletes! Looking forward to improving and making new friends! Thanks!!!
