I have couple months training with Armando and I totally believe I made the right decision. During the last 5 years I’ve been putting up some weight and no feeling too proud about it, especially because I’m short and weight started to cause some foot and knee pain. I’ve always postponed work out, it was not my priority but after training with Armando, I feel like I need to go for a session every day so I can get my “Feeling good” dose. Armando’s positivism makes my work out enjoyable even though he pushes me and takes all my energy with every exercise. Armando has motivated me to keep going and give 100% every time we meet. He is professional, he listens, analyzes every piece of information I give him and he even suggests a relax/stretch session to get rid of stress I bring from work. When I first started, he analyzed my measurements, goals, posture, time and health and came up with a plan to target my problematic areas. I have only couple months training and I can see a few changes already. I feel more energetic and with the desire of keep going. Armando makes sure I have the right posture/form and execute moves in a proper way so that I can get the best from my workout and benefit from every move. I thank Armando for his support and guidance in every session and especially for pushing to keep a good nutrition. I would recommend Armando if you are serious about your work out. He is a great trainer; you will get the best of his knowledge and enthusiasm in every session.

My three children have been training with Jay since they were five years old. Now that they are becoming teenagers, they look to him for physical training but also as a life coach. Jay teaches self discipline and respect as he coaches. My wife and I have been training with Jay for the last one year. We have trained with Jay for fitness, self defense, kickbox, and jujitsu. Since we enjoy working with him, we have also scheduled our own private family classes with him. I learn something new each class and have fun at the same time. I have lost over 40 pounds in the last one year.

Battle Control MMA has been my second home for over 8 years now. Master Greg Lara (Sir), his family and his students are the most inviting, determined and passionate people you will find devoting themselves to the martial arts. Even though everyone trains to the fullest, grinds to get better and tap out their opponents, his students -much like a reflection of his teachings- work together collaboratively with a competitive spirit rather than succumbing to ego and self-prestige. If a pair of students are sparing and one is caught with a clean technique, the one who got caught will openly and happily acknowledge their defeat and give his/her teammate much deserved props. Although Sir teaches classes focused primarily on Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, he is also very knowledge about striking, as he has a 3rd degree in Tae Kwon Do. Family atmosphere and accepting attitude of the team makes Battle Control the academy I keep coming back to year after year, recommending it to friends and family as often as I can, spreading the word about this special academy.

    Thomas is a phenomal trainer, I would rate my overall expierence with him as an 11/10. His multi-faceted training approach targets everything from nutrition, personalized training regamines, recovery and supplementation. My sessions have included strength and interval training as well as self defense martial arts. I work in law enforcement and found a necessity to upgrade my hand to hand techniques which Thomas as helped me greatly improve. After several sessions with Thomas I was able to learn his diverse background in the fitness realm, from high school athlete to professional mixed martial artist. His training sessions were very specific to my need, and extremely intense as well. Not only is he an excellent coach that talks the talk with an encyclopedia of knowledge, he walks the walk. It's nice to see a trainer who practices what they preach and puts in the work. If you want an awesome workout and great session check him out.

    My experience with Gina through All Sport had been wonderful! I began sessions with Gina over a year ago as a self defense class, which has developed into a combination martial arts, self defense and overall body conditioning class. Gina is very professional, thorough, and works with me on developing personal strengths and skills. I highly recommend her as a unique instructor, first rate on all levels:) Best wishes, Stephanie M.

    Freddy is by far the best personal trainer/coach I've ever trained with. He is dedicated to helping his clients reach their goals, no matter how big or small they might be. I have lost 15 lbs training with Freddy, and have significantly improved upon my striking ability, power, and hand speed. Freddy also offers strength training and I have become so much stronger since day 1! He pushes his clients to be the best version of themselves, and you won't regret investing in yourself and training with Freddy!
