Muscles will be put to the test in Denton this weekend to help wounded U.S. troops.

Participants at the CrossFit NTX in Denton began doing tough workout routines at the top of every hour Saturday at 6:00 a.m.  It will continue on the hour for 24 hours. 

Registration fees will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project, which helps injured U.S. service members.  The non-profit program offers everything from rehabilitative retreats to higher education and development programs.

You don't have to do huffing and puffing. You can visit CrossFit NTX to watch the participants and donate to the Wounded Warrior Project.  Only registered participants can do the "heavy lifting."

According to its website, CrossFit NTX provides strength and conditioning through a combination of weightlifting, gymnastics and power lifting.
