Max is great to work with and he has a very pragmatic approach to self defense / martial arts. He has a very diverse background in training and he seems to select the components that work best given a particular context. He is direct and wants you to empower you with good technique and a strong mental framework. My introductory session went great, and I signed up for another block of classes - so far so good!
I've been training with Josh for over a year and a half now. I first decided to train in mixed martial arts just as a new workout routine, and because I enjoyed the sport as a fan. I was essentially starting from scratch, and because of that I felt that getting personal training would be more effective than taking large group classes so that I would get the fundamentals down from the start. Josh was very patient in teaching me all the basics. He's a great teacher, and is able to break down some very complex techniques into simple instructions that can be applied. He also understands and focuses on what his students goals are and gears the training accordingly, so that you're always learning something specifically catered to helping you achieve them. Ive come a long way since I first started working with Josh and because I have gotten results faster than I originally expected, I now have a different set of goals from when I began. I have no doubt his teaching can help me get there. Josh definitely puts you through a tough workout, but its a lot of fun and I really look forward to it each week. He has accomplished a lot in this sport, so he can fit whatever experience level you are at. I consider him not just a coach but a friend and fully endorse anyone looking for a trainer to check him out.
Excellent, hands-on self defense training that can benefit anyone, of any age. Even if one has trained in martial arts, these training scenarios are more realistic and help one learn about natural reactions to being surprised, quick ways to regain control and simple actions to respond effectively. Good for anyone to learn and everyone to practice. I particularly recommend this for girls, teens, and college-bound young women.
It's been two sessions now with Jeremy, and what I like most about J is that he listens while he's watching and executes without pushing too far or too little. Jeremy has an eye for form, super crucial for someone like myself with a lot of past injuries, and he respects what I as a client want to work on while adding in what he knows I need to excel as an "athlete" competing in daily life. Being able to work on the scaffolding required for challenging lifts with someone I trust has been vital to my personal development, and the bonus is he knows a variety of martial arts so I get some stress relief with basic (for now, bwahaha) boxing drills. I'm looking forward to more sessions with Jeremy and am excited to see what we can accomplish together!

Victor was prompt in communication and did a wonderful job engaging a roomful of 5 year olds in martial arts. Thank you!
Motion Fitness & Martial Arts: is a great place for fitness. Martin is a GREAT instructor, he works with you to make sure you understand the workout and makes sure you are doing the exercise properly. He is very detail oriented and wants to make sure you reach your goal. If you are looking for someone to push you and reach your potential this is the place to go.
Jay is not only a great martial arts instructor but more importantly to me - he helps kids understand important life lessons. He talks to his kids a lot about being responsible and holds them accountable. He is a rare find.
I think Jeff is a real stand up guy, he helped me get creative with my exercise routine and really increased my level of physical fitness and in turn my personal success. One thing that I think he could have done better was Charge More!!!! His services are so good I don't know why he isn't it some rich gym like Equinox. Will come back again!
I have worked with Will both in Fitness and martial arts. His knowledge extends past his years.
