CrossFit in North Richland Hills: Elite Sports Training (CrossFit EST) in DFW, TX.

CrossFit EST in North Richland Hills

We visited CrossFit Elite Sports Training (CrossFit EST) on a recent weekend for an olympic weight lifting workshop with C J Del Balso.  CJ is an excellent coach who is clear, articulate and able to work with people new to lifting as well as with experienced lifters seeking to refine technique.  He is a frequent visitor in CrossFit EST.    CrossFit EST is owned and run by CrossFit Games Masters Competitor Ken Cutrer and Regional Athlete (not a Masters) Chris Lofland.  Ken offers excellent training for CrossFit Masters and others.  You can read more about him, his accomplishments and philosophy of life in this article, published by in CrossFit Mainsite.

Ken Cutrer is not afraid to let anyone know his form is out of line.

Chris Lofland is a former competitive gymnast and gymanstics coach.  He  is certified in CrossFit Gymnastics and in CrossFit kids. The photo below shows Chris about to make a 250 pound snatch.  That is pretty good for a very normal looking guy.  His PR is substantially higher.  You’ll have to ask him what it is yourself.  CrossFit EST is still small enough that members can get lots of top-level individual coaching and attention, while enjoying a supportive community.

CrossFit EST is located in North Richland Hills, TX.  The same facility also offers gymnastics and tumbling for kids (and interested adults) and cheerleading (very big in Texas).
