ABOUT CROSSFIT WILSON

About Us 2018-09-12T09:54:21+00:00

EVERY DAY IS AN OPPORTUNITY

CrossFit Wilson started in January of 2012 at Forest Hills Park, on Forest Hills Rd. We worked out right there in the park with medicine balls, kettlebells, and our own body weight. During that time, we had anywhere from 4 to 8 members.  We held one class a day at 6pm. Slowly, the word about our workouts and results started to spread. Our members brought us more members and we were able to buy an old radiator shop.

We opened at 2804 Forest Hills Rd in October of 2012. Since then, we have tried our best to help our members be the best versions of themselves. We have grown to over 100 members and are now looking to expand so that we can service our members even better.  We are now starting up our CrossFit Kids program. CrossFit Kids is going to dramatically change the lives of our youth.  We are excited and eager to see what God has in store for the future of CrossFit Wilson.

I believe that we have a chance to better ourselves every single day.  You either got better or you got worse. One of my passions is speaking life into people. I love seeing someone’s potential long before they see it and being able to help them reach that potential. We all lack motivation, self-confidence, direction, drive, information or belief in ourselves.  I’ve seen people get better in every area of their lives just by trying to get their health and fitness under their control. I exist to help people get better.

Hey y’all! CrossFit changed my life in January 2012. I was in Wilmington at UNCW and felt a little lost. I had played sports my entire life and didn’t know what to do with my free time after my sports career. A close friend of mine challenged me to try CrossFit. I did and I was hooked! The workouts were intense and always so different from day to day. I couldn’t get enough.

I worked out beside people who finished working out before me and stayed there to help cheer me on. The community aspect of CrossFit is pretty awesome. I moved back to Wilson that fall because I was homesick. I was upset that I wouldn’t be able to continue CrossFit until I found CrossFit Wilson. CrossFit encourages me, humbles me, and motivates me. Some workouts make me laugh and some have made me cry. It keeps me coming back. Life is easy at times and hard at times. I believe that CrossFit better prepares you for life more than in a physical aspect. My favorite workouts include heavy Olympic lifting and being upside down. My least favorite workouts include running and rowing. I went with my husband, Austin, to get certified as a CrossFit Level 1 Coach in the fall of 2015. I enjoy when people ask me how to get better at a certain movement. One of the most gratifying aspects of being a coach is witnessing people achieve something that they once thought they could never do. Since I began CrossFit, I have learned a lot about mental toughness, nutrition, flexibility, and body awareness. My passion for CrossFit continues to grow and I want to spread the love!

I am a labor and delivery nurse at Wilson Medical Center. On my days off, I love spending time with Austin, cooking, spending time at the box and playing with Rogue, our golden retriever. Austin and I got married in May 2016. We found Bethel Church in Goldsboro a little after we started dating. I love Bethel and what God has shown me through that church. God has since led us to lead a life group at the box that is open to anyone and everyone!

I wouldn’t be where I am today without the support of my husband and family. I believe that the encouragement they have shown me my entire life drives me to encourage others in all that they do.

I have always been an active person that looked for a challenge both mentally and physically.   I may also have a bit of a competitive side and hate to find something I cannot do.  I stumbled across CrossFit in May of 2013.  I immediately knew I had found the sport that provided me with challenges and a very long list of things I could not do, YET!

It would provide continuous opportunities to learn new things and see just how far I could push my limits. This stuff was TOUGH and I was hooked!  1 year after starting CrossFit I earned my Level I CrossFit Certification and began coaching. My CrossFit story was just beginning.  I know that for me there will always be another skill that I need to work on, another new opportunity for improvement, and something else to learn. My goal as a coach is to share what I learn and my journey with others to help them on their path to fitness.

Though my full-time job is managing the ICU and the Cardiac Telemetry unit in a hospital, my passion is coaching here at CrossFit Wilson and helping people become healthier. I love to see someone achieve that breakthrough on a skill or movement that they have struggled with. I get to share in the excitement and pride that comes when people push themselves and putting forth the effort and time to practice and finally succeed. I get to watch someone that could not physically run a short time ago be able to run or jog their first 400m without stopping and that brings a certain sense of satisfaction. By far the best part of coaching is very simply this group, this community.  This group never ceases to amaze me with the support, encouragement, and motivation they provide to our members. Never have I met a group of people that are more accepting and supportive of each individual fitness journey. I am inspired to be a better athlete, coach, and person because of my CrossFit family.

One of the things that I love about CrossFit is that if you are willing to get out of your comfort zone you will develop skills and strengths you didn’t think were possible.  Outside of your comfort zone is where change begins to happen.  These changes are what allow us to live life to the fullest every day.

My name is Amy Lee and I am proud to be one of your coaches here at CrossFit Wilson. Now, are you ready to get out of your comfort zone with us?

In 2010 CrossFit changed my life.  I am stronger, fitter and healthier than ever before.  God opened the doors at CrossFit Wilson and gave me the opportunity to share my experience and knowledge of this lifestyle change with others.  It has been amazing to watch their CrossFit Journey as they become part of our CrossFit family, with a healthier, happier and fitter lifestyles.

Ever since I was a little girl I have had a passion for the game of soccer. It taught me discipline and kept me fit. I went on to play for Barton College while I completed my Bachelor of Science in Biology. As my soccer career came to an end, I started to feel empty. I had been a part of a team for so many years and then one day it was just, over. 

As life went on, my husband and I settled down and had two beautiful little boys. 

But, having kids left me with unwanted weight I knew I had to lose. I had tried different gyms but was not achieving the results I had set out for, then came Crossfit. At first, I was intimidated and I never thought I was capable of doing Crossfit. I signed up for my foundation classes at Crossfit Wilson and it was humbling to say the least. However, it made me feel good and I kept showing up. I slowly began developing a better version of myself, not only physically but mentally.  Pushing myself beyond what I thought was my limit with some of the best people I’ve ever met. I had found a team, a team of people pushing each other to become better every day. The things I was learning (and still learning) about myself through my workouts started to overflow into other areas of my life. It not only filled the void that soccer left, but it was making me a better person, mom and wife. CrossFit has brought so much positivity to my life that I have never experienced through any other sport.  I am so excited to have the opportunity to coach and be able to watch how CrossFit will change your life for the better, as it has mine.

I’m a transplant from Colombia, South America, so I am bubbly, very upbeat and your best option if you’d like to practice Spanish (My first language). I’ve been in the States for some years now and I joined CrossFit Wilson as an athlete almost as soon as I moved here, not knowing what I was getting myself into.

My motivations at that time were just to work out a few times a week to maintain my weight and to meet some people from the area and I ended up finding way more than that. I am in the best shape I’ve ever been and got friends that became family. I love everything about CrossFit, especially  the sense of community that keeps you coming back. Now, I want to encourage people to be better everyday and to share their joy when they achieve things that once they thought impossible.
