GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Despite the extreme heat, dozens of people still worked out at CrossFit Tier One in Greenville on Tuesday afternoon.

“With the heat index and everything, they’re going to experience temperatures probably over 100 [degrees],” general manager Brent Jamison said.

For member John Becker, the heat doesn’t stop him.

“You almost forget about everything else that’s going on,” Becker said.

Jamison said all class participants were required to have water bottles or they couldn’t participate.

He pushed all of his members to drink plenty of fluids before and after class.
