About Us

tim-praterTim Prater, aka Doc,
started his CrossFit career essentially on a bet- “I don’t think you’ll do this workout, and if you do, this guy’s time will destroy you”. This workout has become his passion- the pinnacle of fitness. Doc’s definition of fitness is that on a continuum, with illness being on one end of the curve, wellness in the middle, with the goal of FIT as a constantly growing, changing development. He played football at Kalamazoo College with highlight of being D3Football.com’s defensive player of the week from the defensive end position. Football led to the many injuries that drew Doc into his main line of work – Doctor of Chiropractic.

Daily his goal is to find the best possible fix for every patient that walks into Denton Chiropractic & Natural Health, where he practices. “CrossFit is the best workout model that I’ve found, and I’ve coached, strength coached, trained athletes from child to senior to professional, and the combination of techniques done with a proper diet, stretching/mobility program/stability supplement can lead to the best possible athletic performance. I love CrossFit and what it has brought to my life”.
