After losing close to 150 lbs. over 18 months with Weight Watchers, I started training with Dana at the beginning of October 2015. I had lost the weight but had done no strength training prior to that point. Dana asked the right questions and immediately got me working on strengthening my core and building muscle mass that I had never really had before. With the massive weight loss, I had to relearn movement, balance and more. Dana has tailored my training plan to accomplish this successfully. She educated me on proper nutrition with specific instructions on protein and carbohydrate intake in conjunction with Weight Watchers. The difference I have seen since that time has been fantastic. Working with Dana Ive seen my body weight continue to drop while my lean muscle mass has increased. Im seeing the toning and definition that I hoped for. My massage therapist has commented on the difference shes seen in my muscle tone and the strengthening of various muscle groups due to the workout program Dana laid out for me. I know this difference is because of the guidance and encouragement from Dana over this time. Im also a runner, having completed two Half Marathons since December 2015. With the core and endurance training Dana has put me through, Ive cut over 3 minutes per mile off of my running pace in the last 3 months. Her style is direct and honest, which I appreciate. She doesnt pull her punches and doesnt sugar coat things. That makes a world of difference when your focus is actually seeing noticeable results. At the same time, shes been extremely supportive and encouraging since day 1. I know that the progress Ive made physically and in my self-confidence are directly related to the instruction, guidance and support Dana has given me. If you want results from a trainer that knows how to achieve definable and measureable goals, you need to work with Dana and give her 100% of your effort. You will see results. You will feel better and stronger. I'm happy to provide this review based on all the changes I've seen working with Dana.
Training in Dr. Jaffri's class has been a life changing experience. I was taught the moves needed to get out of any situation. More importantly I was taught to think and react on my feet, I feel this is how he as a trainer takes his program deeper then others I've experienced. You never know what an attacker will do so he goes through every possible situation and instilled in you how to react. This is much more powerful then just teaching the "moves". As a rape and abuse survivor I finally have the confidence to walk the streeets without PTSD episodes. I highly recommend his self defense program.
Cory is an outstanding instructor. His depth of knowledge about ninpo is matched only by his ability to teach effectively. This is a great place to learn self-defense.
Awesome place to train. Safe, clean, ego free. In 2 years at RMJJ, lost over 100 pounds and learned self defense. Jiu jitsu is the best decision I ever made.
As a police officer with over 24 years of police experience, I know the importance of learning self defense. After intense research, I came across Mr. Cooper, a very humble and exteremely knowlegeable instructor. I have witnessed this National and State Karate Champion patiently instruct both children and adults. I am happy to say that I am one of Mr. Cooper's students who continues to be amazed by his knowledge and ability to instruct in a friendly class setting. You will be amazed what a great stress relief that a karate class can bring!
I have been going to Rocky Mountain Self Defense and Fitness since 2009. John is an excellent teacher. He always makes class fun and challenging at the same time. His knowledge of Krav Maga is very extensive. Its very difficult to find a Krav Maga instructor who is a 2nd Degree black belt. I have studied several methods of Martial Arts and even have a black belt in one of them but have not felt confident about defending myself until I joined Rocky Mountain Self Defense and Fitness and learned Krav Maga. I highly recommend it especially for women.
As a trainer in the fitness industry I hold a high standard for any Fitness professional that I would hire personally. Brett Hart is an expert in his field and truly gives his all to his clientele. He knows how to vary the intensity to match the efforts of a first-timer or a seasoned athlete. He is personable, well-organized, flexible in his scheduling and inspirational in his approach. I would highly recommend Brett for one-on-one, small group or large group kickboxing conditioning, martial arts and self defense training.
