Thomas Hooton

Thomas brought CrossFit to the Morgantown area by starting Mountaineer CrossFit in September 2009 while he was finishing his Master’s degree in Exercise Physiology at WVU and has watched it continue to grow into the most successful CrossFit gym in the Morgantown area. Thomas prides himself on providing the best CrossFit coaching in the area. His goal is to help everyone that walks through the door as much as he can regardless of their fitness goals.  He has proudly coached 5 individuals and 2 teams to the Regional level of the CrossFit Games and multiple Master’s Online Qualifiers and has reached that the Regional level himself as an individual four times. Thomas aims to instill the same passion he has for health and fitness into his clients.
