CTF does a lot for you! We are a training facility so there are always a lot of options to help you continue to improve in whatever direction you want to take.
Here’s how to make the best choices available for you:
- Know what you’re training for. Feel free to experiment with different classes to see what you are interested in. Once you find an interest, stick to that particular training program for 8-12 weeks and then re-assess your training goals upon finishing. Do not look for any magic combination of programs to make you into a super-human. This never works: physiologically it confuses your body to the point it does not know what you want it to do and it will cease to improve and psychologically it is not sustainable: it is too stressful to keep up with.
- Ask yourself, “Do these class times work for me?” There is no point in entering a program that does not work with your schedule. Getting up a little earlier or staying out a little later is a separate issue, as this is a matter of convenience not impossibility. But, still, this may play a role in your approach, which is fine with us as long as it is okay with you.
- If you get stuck, ask a red shirt. The CTF Staff is here to help you, use us. We can guide you to finding the best you, that’s part of the service. We have been training people of all interests, abilities and age groups since 2010. We can make sure you set yourself up for success.

Body Chisel: No barbells (most of the time!). Gymnastics, kettlebell and medball strength training with intense interval, circuit and conditioning workouts lasting anywhere from 15-45 minutes. Perfect for the athlete who feels they need a little longer work at lighter weights. Great for cutting weight and building strength.

Perfect for the athlete who feels they need a little longer work at lighter weights. Great for cutting weight and building strength.
