I asked Troy for guidance in self-defense and he was very effective in his communication and teachings. He tailored our one-on-one sessions to meet the expectations that I wanted for myself, and we only got to meet 3 times before my trip. Hope to continue training with him again.
David is a great guy and a really good instructor! I would recommend him to anyone that was looking to learn Krav maga or any self defense....
I will speak to the professionalism Da’Mon exhibits on a daily basis with his clients. He is not only passionate about our progress in the gym but also professionally as he has gotten certified in life coaching and mentors a group of us weekly on advancing our careers and lives. I watched him work with 60-100 people every morning at 5am for months and was amazed at the patience and attention to detail he displayed with everyone present. I have meet the majority of his current clients as we all get together for his birthday and one holiday each year. I am a life long client started with him in bootcamp a few years back where I lost 23lbs in 60 days and have been along for the ride ever since. I can’t say enough about the positive impact he has had on my fitness and professional journeys. I have more self confidence thanks to the body we have constructed over the years and professionally I have gone from intern to analyst to manger and on track for a director role.
He's an outstanding teacher and there is no one else more qualified. He shocked me about it his age, but I can assure you he knows his stough and you will be satisfied. I almost didn't get anything, but he told me that you have to contact him directly at (347) 714-6738. Donte is very fun easy to get along with and he's an amazing martial artist. I wouldn't hire anyone else for this position. If you are looking for a class you must go to him. You can call or text this number at any time day or night and he will respond to you personally. Don't pass up such a golden opportunity at an amazing price. I recommend this to all who want to protect family and gain self discipline. You will be satisfied with the outcome.
I took my 14 yr old daughter to her very first self-defense class and in a word "Outstanding!" The instruction she received was practical, effective and repeatable, which is exactly what you need. I would highly recommend this to any female 12+. You will come away knowing what you need to know to fend off any intruder who may be bigger and stronger. Be safe!!

I've been training with Jay MasterFitness Gee for 3 years. He's helped me go from weak to STRONG without stepping into a gym. He uses a myriad of techniques that have kept my body guess and changing: body weight exercises, pilates, kettlebells, stretching, swimming, boxing ... the list goes on and on. I'm amazed at the things I can do now. We even did several months working on self defense moves, and I've never been more confident in my ability to protect myself. He's encouraging w/o being annoying and filled with knowledge and expertise. He's an easy recommendation ... Let him show you how to OUTDO YOURSELF!
The best reality based self defense company in North Georgia.
For most of my life I have always been a bit of a "nerd" and not very fit; when I started college I decided to change this. I made a goal to get into good shape and become more actively involved in outdoor activities. For a few years I worked out on and off, but even after doing extensive research online I had trouble figuring out how to do the workouts effectively. I also had difficulty learning what to eat and how much of it. I decided to make the investment and get a personal trainer to show me the ropes and that is how I met Al. I've had a few sessions with other personal trainers (free sessions) that had failed to interest me. It seemed like they were only in it for the money. Al stood out by having a noticeable passion for what he does. He enjoys helping people get healthy and in shape while boosting their self-confidence; he isn't interested in just training pretty women! During my first 3-month agreement with Al, I learned a lot about how to work out properly. Since I was mostly interested in gaining lean muscle, he worked me hard. Al's workouts can seem like boot camp, but one of his greatest strengths is keeping you motivated. He constantly pushed me to my limits and motivated me to become stronger, and every day I found that my limits were greater. Al knows what he is doing and his workouts are very effective. I'm able to do exercise now at an intensity that I never thought I would be able to get to. I a lot more energy to get myself through the day. My performance at my job as increased as well, getting in shape with Al has helped improve all aspects of my life. I recently signed on a second agreement with Al to take my workouts to the next level! You wont regret training with Al, he will take you past your limits!
I started working with Master Steve 18 months ago, as an alternative to weightlifting--which I had done for years and wanted something new. I knew I would get in shape, but I was shocked by the dramatic changes in my body, especially in terms of muscle tone, loss of body fat and overall endurance. As an instructor, Master Steve is incredibly patient, encouraging and clearly has the experience in teaching to help each student improve in their skills. Ever though I started out as an alternative to the gym, I've really developed a passion for MMA--a passion clearly shared by Master Steve and I am actively working towards a black belt. What impresses me the most about TrasforMMAtion's program is that time is not wasted. Other martial arts schools I've looked at spend an inordinate amount of time on "conditioning" and very little on actual instruction and practicing of MMA techniques. After warming up, almost all the time is spent with Master Steve on acquiring and improving techniques, without any wasted time. I would recommend TransforMMAtion and Master Steve to anyone who wants to get in shape, feel more confident in self defense situations, or who would like to go beyond the basics to mastering the discipline.
