Choosing to join this gym was the best decision I’ve ever made! If you choose to do the same you won’t regret it! (Except for maybe the morning after a workout…when you’re muscles are screaming at you…) When I first started I had been working out pretty regularly and thought I was in decent shape. That thought was quickly put to shame.. During that first month I thought I would never not be sore ever again! But it was all worth it. What I love about spending time here is that you not only get an amazing workout but you also learn a skill at the same time. Working through all the classes made me realize how much I enjoyed doing sports still and gave me a new physical challenge that I hadn’t had since high school! Not only that, but this gym has such a family feel! You quickly get to know the three trainers well and start meeting your “gym family”. I’ve never smiled and laughed more during workouts, which is a feat considering I how much my muscles were dying! The trainers become like siblings, just those siblings that make you work hard, correct your technique, tease you and somehow through all of that make you feel so much more confident about yourself! On a more personal note, before coming to this gym, I felt completely defenseless. As a five foot tall woman (who is not very strong) I thought I would be helpless to ever defend myself against an attacker or rapist. The trainers quickly taught me that was not the case! While the gym was still young and classes were smaller, my roommate and I were occasionally the only ones in the evening attending Dan’s MMA/grappling class. His first few classes with just us were focused on self-defense, which also happened to coordinate with the first basic submissions taught. Dan taught us how to react, drop, and attack a much larger person if we were left with no other options. I left his classes so empowered! For the first time I felt I would have control in a bad situation and not only get away but possibly come out on top. Working with Gabby I’ve learned how correct technique and leverage can make you much stronger than you think you are! And how I should never take it easy on myself just because I’m a woman. Working with each of the trainers though boxing, kickboxing and grappling, I have become stronger, happier, more confident and more empowered than I’ve ever been. Try it out and you might become another lifelong customer!
