  • The question they ask for me to answer is what's great about this gym.... more like wat isn't great, that would b a much smaller list. Everything is great about this gym. The time slots available to train, the wide range of classes to take, the instructors all helping out to make you better, not just if ur a fighter, that's for everyone. I've been to a lot of other gyms across the US, and by far this one is the best. The price per month isn't gonna break the bank and it's cheaper than most other gyms. The equipment is always being updated and they always trying to make things nice and better. You can really tell that this gym puts a lot of its money back into the gym. Even the people who go there are friendly and willing to lend a hand to help you get better. There's not a bunch of cocky guys walk in around, picking on u cause ur not as good as them or trying to hold you back from getting better or kids running I the middle of ur session. They have great quality gear to sell and all of the instructors are really good at wat they do and you know if they teach you something it's gonna work. Because they've all fought before and some still actively fight. I love that gym and would never go to another one, that's why since finding that gym almost 4 years ago, I have trained anywhere else unless it's drilling against another team/gym.
