“I had just moved from overseas and I was getting ready for my first competition. I wanted to see some real powerlifters. The first day I was in CETC, there was no question. I decided that I wanted to be a part of this gym and Gracie’s DCS Pack”
– Eric G

“Badass gym with a badass coach. Gracie has helped me and several others at CETC push past what we thought was capable.”
– Zach W

“Joining Crossfit dcs was one of the best decisions I’ve made because the crossfit coaches here are absolutely the best!  Lucas and Sammy are very knowledgeable and supportive! They truly care about helping each individual reach their fitness goals. Since joining Crossfit dcs a few months ago, I can say that I am stronger mentally and physically! I would highly recommend Crossfit dcs to anyone at any fitness level!”
– Clarissa Kugler

“I am very thankful for stumbling upon CET. Finally I found a gym where I feel comfortable and get all the training I’m looking for and more.”
– Beau Devereux

“My wife and I originally signed up for CrossFit on a groupon as a short term way to get back in shape when we moved to SD. Needless to say we have now signed a permanent membership, and look forward to every training session! We’ve tried several different boxes, and DCS is by far our favorite. Our trainer, Lucas, is laid back and fun to hang out with…until class starts. I’ve never met someone as individually focused on each student, and knowledgeable and observant enough to make your form perfect. Without any kind of negative feedback (screaming, yelling, etc.) he continuously pushes you to not only push yourself during each workout, but to improve your form and flexibility to make you a better athlete. The gym itself is huge, with a plethora of different powerlifting and CrossFit equipment. The community is friendly, with anyone who works there always swapping advice and a helping hand. If you’re serious about a no nonsense gym that will make you stronger, then this is where you need to be!”
