I am an athlete at heart and I found myself completely unhappy with my body and health about a year ago. After trying to work on my self esteem first, I decided in September it was time to get back into fitness like I had been my whole life. I came on thumbtack and scheduled meetings with five different trainers. I met with JJ first and cancelled the rest before I even had a workout with him. Honestly I hired him only based off of his personality and game plan for for getting me back into shape. He literally is one of the funniest people I have met. However he doesn't mess around when it's time to work. And each workout I find that he can push me to limits I didn't know I had. I have lost 24 pounds so far but have become so much stronger and healthier. We weight lift, do cardio, and he has taught me personal defense. I was skeptical paying money to get fit but I'm investing in my health and it truly makes me happy. (He is going to make fun of me for getting sappy on this but whatever he deserves it)
I had been exercising for about a year now by myself but decided to hire a trainer. I've been working out with Vinny for two months now and my body has changed more in the past two months than in the past year. Vinny has taught me from basics: how to breathe correctly during my exercises, proper posture, how to target and isolate certain muscles.. to kickboxing and self defense. Vinny is the type of trainer that will go the extra mile and help you achieve your goals. I def recommend him.
Margo is a great instructor. Highly recommend if you'd like to learn some new self defense skills.
Toby is one of the best trainers and people I've ever met. I've trained with him for the last seven years and it's been my great pleasure to be a part of True Warrior Fitness.
Ernest was awesome!! My sister and I took a self defense class with him and we already learned a lot of useful tactics. I highly recommend his class. Looking forward to see what else he will teach us in the next lessons!
Johnny is awesome! From the moment I met him I could tell he was a pro. He was so hyperaware of what was going on around us at all times. As far as self defense goes, he's the absolute best! I've been meeting with him weekly and my progress thus far is really exciting. I know that if in an unfortunate situation I wouldn't freeze and could fend for myself. We do everything from basic self defense (if being attacked with knife/gun/sexual assault) to cardio and boxing. I love training with Johnny and can't wait to get grow even more in my ability. I highly highly recommend him! He is also so so knowledgeable and sweet and so impressive. A living breathing better version of John Wicke but a total teddy bear on the inside.
We've been taking karate at American Kenpo Karate in both group and private class for two years. As an educator who works with both kids and young adults, I appreciate their care and professionalism. I know my daughter is safe with her instructors. She has thrived under their study and has earned her belts through hard work and well executed katas. In addition Kenpo is the best form of self defense for karate. The classes teach discipline, excellent form and responsibility. I would look here before considering anywhere else. They are a step above the rest!
Brian is very knowledgeable in the art of Self Defense. It's apparent from lesson #1 that he has a true passion and intellect for self defense and the teaching of! 5 Stars.
I am a great fan of Shihan Hojati, whose experience, knowledge and teaching skills are simply superb. I am greatly respectful towards his insights regarding Karate do. His approach towards his class is self defense and fitness oriented and his teaching methods encompass the traditional as well as the modified. All the kids as well as the adults benefit greatly in terms of fitness of body as well as that of the mind from his teaching. I have been training with him for more than a year now and hope to be here longer still as I enjoy every class with him!
Scott's classes really helped my son! We had just moved here and he was getting bullied by some kids at school. After two months my son was able to defend himself and I was surprised to see how much his self confidence grew too

Alan is an awesome teacher! He talks to children in their eye-level and always provide welcomed attomsophir to everyone. My sons alway enjoyed his class! And when they got home from his class they taught me how we can self defense! ;)
I completed the course Escape to Gain Safety with Miguel and I feel so good about it! I feel stronger and more confident that I can protect myself. Self defense isn’t just good for ladies, I saw many men in the classes that were strong but needed to know the proper techniques. Thanks Miguel!!!
I have known Marcus for over 20 years. He has trained my nephews in self defense and martial arts. Marcus's main attribute is the ability to support and encourage confidence in one's own ability. I would hire him again with total confidence.
David & his wife arebboth very calming energies. David was able to answer the questions I asked. They blessed our apartment & things feel lighter now.
Mr Sheldon and his associates are a tremedous asset in the field of tactical solutions. Some schools train armchair marksman. With real world professionals, SERT Group grooms effective fighters, while keeping yourself and your teammates safe and ultimately, ALIVE. My recommendation to my colleagues is to always maintain quality, effective training. My yardstick for measuring quality? I get to come home and write about it!
