Definitely looking forward to working with coach Margo for the long run. I was looking for someone to help me in both conditioning as well as self defense. This would be my first time having a personal trainer outside of my family. I was a bit nervous as I had just done research online and had not actually attended anywhere. Coach Margo was the first to respond to my request which was awesome. I was wanting something immediate as well. He was ready to start right away. Coach Margo was extremely professional and my Fiancee actually ended up wanting to train with him as well. I am excited to continue training with coach Margo in learning Muay Thai.

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 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!!!

Lila was right on time (early, actually) and hit it off with my girls right away. She got down to business with them quickly and I could tell that although the girls were being challenged they were having fun. I look forward to seeing them progress in self defense technique over the next several weeks.

I am so grateful to train with Johnny. I train in order to build up my sense of self and be grounded. I've also improved in my self defense skills while training with Johnny. Johnny is really respectful, and cares, and tailors the training sessions to my needs. I highly recommend Johnny.

Ken and Erin are awesome! They have really changed the way my self and my wife approach fitness ! There knowledge and experience is very apparent from the first work out! I really appreciate how they custom fit each individual to there full potential ! For me and my wife it is equally important to work with someone that is easy going and personable! I can truly say that this dynamic duo is just that to sum it up knowledgeable, personable ,and very professional! I personally would recommend EFV to anyone that is interested in learning the proper ways to work out and build confidence in themselves

Wow! An hour goes so fast and I get a good workout plus learning Krav Maga. It is a friendly helpful environment that you are only in competition with yourself. Always encouraged to push yourself to do your very best. Lots of one on one because the instructors walk around the students when doing the drills/exercises and make suggestions and corrections as needed. (In Orange county I was charged $100.00 for 45 minutes for a one on one.) They have a wide range of people from children’s classes to adult classes with ages from teens to 70s. The common thread seems that everyone wants to learn Krav Maga, build self-confidence, get stronger and more fit while having fun. Can’t bet that!

We started with Vinny a little over 2 weeks ago at our home in Sylmar. We have a 14 year old son that was bullied at his high school. He has had other self defense under his belt, however nothing compares to the skill & quality that Vinny brings to the table! Our son has already shown an inner self confidence that we have not seen before! Looking forward to the new changes in our son as he progresses in his training. We highly recommend him to teach anyone it doesn't matter the age!

Great martial arts and fitness gym for any age or experience. From the athletes who want to push themselves further and compete in mixed martial arts, to the ones who just want to set a health goal and smash it, and for those who just want to learn some self defense. Great coaches and friendly environment with other members.
