CrossFit Wilmington was the first affiliate in Wilmington, NC. We affiliated in 2007 and since, the CFW Team has been providing the Port City with the best functional fitness and strength training available. CFW, though professionalism, quality training, and exceptional customer service, CFW has become one of the most successful CrossFit Affiliates in the world. We are proud to be the healthy catalyst in so many peoples’ lives and made such a positive impact in Wilmington.
Our program is mature, safe, and welcoming to all fitness levels. Whether you are a beginner or superfit, you will feel comfortable at CrossFit Wilmington and get all the instruction and training you need to reach your personal fitness goals. CrossFit Wilmington is the only affiliate in Wilmington to have athletes compete at the CrossFit World Games.

Tony and Casey – Afghanistan early ’02
CrossFit Wilmington was founded by Tony Cowden and Casey Ross. Tony and Casey served in the Army Special Forces and worked together in the intelligence community for almost ten years when they decided to team up and open what was to be North Carolina’s third CrossFit gym. Tony and Casey are both believers of hard work and earning your own… Special Forces does not give anyone a free ride. They invested their own hard earned money and began what is now Wilmington’s only world class training center. A career move made it difficult for Casey to continue his involvement in CFW and in 2009, Tony took over as CFW’s sole owner.
