I was looking for self defense training in order to learn how to protect myself. I found Onyx Fitness Training and it was one of the best decisions that I have made! They went over basic jiu jitsu and striking style techniques and I noticed that my core is a lot stronger! They were very nice and welcoming. I really enjoy training here! They also have a full gym for weight training as well! I am more excited than ever because not only am I learning self defense, but I am seeing drastic changes towards my body as well! Visit their website at www.onyx-fitness.com. Amazing training!!!

I was highly skeptical based on past experience that a personal trainer would be effective. Robert has demonstrated that the right trainer in the difference. What impressed me most is his attention to my current conditioning. He closely monitors vitals, and each workout is different, incorporating calisthenics, stretching, self defense, and whip cracking, I mean motivation. HIGHLY recommended, initially I thought the travel distance was too far but it works.

I've trained with Moore Sensei for 3 months now. He's very knowledgable and he keeps classes fun. It's a nice mix. If you're interested in a traditional dojo that teaches more than just self defense I would highly recommend it.

Unfortunately, through personal experience, I had to protect myself during a vehicle break-in in Miami, Florida. Sensei Tim's instructions allowed me to not only defend myself, but to detain the suspect until the authorities arrived. Consequently, the suspect was tried and convicted for his misdeeds. He was a repeat offender. Self defense and mechanisms devised for personal protection are needed to improve safety for self, family, and friends.

Fitness is a beautiful thing. Everyone and anyone can have a slice of the pie, which means there are hundreds of thousands (if not millions!) fitness professionals cropping up every day. The number of fitness, health, and nutrition advice out there can be overwhelming. Luckily, I met Randall who provided me inspirational, creative, knowledgeable, and innovative fitness routines. From running, to strength training to Nutrition advice, to HIIT workouts, to self-improvement, Randall covers pretty much every avenue under the sun. I selected Randall as my trainer because he produces great, helpful, inspiring, fun, fitness routines that were tailored to my fitness level. I've had tremendous results and couldn't be more pleased with my results.

    OUTSTANDING training!!! My wife and I initially took concealed weapons permit & basic firearms training with Toby. He was extremely knowledgeable, professional and drastically improved our firearms proficiency. I recently started taking personal & home defense training with Toby, which has been a life altering decision so far as my confidence level has tremendously increased. As a successful businessman and father of 4 this was very important for me.
