About DTC CROSSFIT

Training at its peak

DTC CrossFit was started in 2013 on principles of fitness, community, accountability, and integrity. It is our mission to offer the best coaching & programming in a community where people of all fitness levels can improve their quality of life. Our community-based strength and conditioning programs have been proven effective and deliver unparalleled results. We are located just off I-25 and Arapahoe Road in a 9,500 square foot facility.

Everyday athletes at DTC CrossFit break down barriers and set new standards for themselves. Our training is intense and it creates a bond among our members that can’t be manufactured. Together we sweat to expose weaknesses & get stronger. The community aspect of DTC CrossFit is our greatest strength. We are supportive, we are competitive, we are strong, we are humble, we are athletes… we are DTC CrossFit.

DTC CROSSFIT PROGRAM

Crossfit 101

Our CrossFit 101 program is an informational and instructional course designed for anyone new to CrossFit. In our Foundations sessions, we slow down our usual pace to guide you through the basic movements, get you familiarized with proper mechanics and technique and get your body primed to join our group classes. Foundations is designed to ensure your success and to give the coaches an opportunity to really assess the beginning of your journey. We offer this program in 3 sessions, 1 hour /each, planned and scheduled around your time in order to offer flexible options.

DTC CROSSFIT PROGRAM

CROSSFIT GROUP TRAINING

Based on the CrossFit prescription of “constantly varied functional movement executed at high intensity,” our CrossFit program combines strength training with the “classic” CrossFit cardio workout. For this 1-hour class, you could be working on pull-ups, rowing, burpees, and much more. Every WOD is different so you never get bored! We scale each workout to your fitness level, so you get maximum results every time.

Meet The Coaches

Chase Knighton

Owner & Head Coach

Chase is the Owner and Head Coach at DTC CrossFit. He’s a former Division 1 football player (University of Kansas) and All-State Quarterback in the state of Texas. After being introduced to CrossFit his junior year, it became a full-time fixture. Since then, he’s competed in multiple CrossFit and weightlifting competitions. “When I finished football, I began coaching at a sports performance facility in Kansas City and started implementing the CrossFit methodology into my programming. I saw amazing results from my athletes.”

Once Chase moved to Colorado, he joined forces with David and created CrossFit Greenwood Village, which is now DTC CrossFit. “When it comes to coaching, I love that there isn’t a one size fits all method. Every athlete is different and unique in their own way and you have to be able to recognize that and coach them with that mindset.”

Jeff Schuette

Coach

Coach Jeff Schuette is passionate about helping others. He wants to do whatever is in his power to help them improve their lives inside and outside the gym. Originally an All-Conference Division II Linebacker, Jeff initially started CrossFitting 4 years ago when he began training for CrossFit competitions.

Jeff now specializes in Olympic Lifting, Aerobic Capacity, Cardiac Patients and working with the elderly among other things. He also loves to see when something “clicks” for a member he is training. “When they struggle with a movement and maybe a small cue I give them makes a huge difference, their reaction is amazing to be a part of”, he says. Because of those reactions, he has decided to take a break from seriously competing in CrossFit competitions for now, to focus on being the best coach that he can be
