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!
One on one self defense training. Troy was extremely knowledgeable and covered a lot of ground. Great work out too.
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'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!
I had the privilege of working with Practical Combat Applications for a number of years, as a PR and Communications consultant for the organization. PCA is composed of many Martial Arts instructors, with unique individualized skillsets. All of the instructors and Senseis are very competent and versed in various techniques and formats. PCA aggressively prepares a range of clients from corporate members and Law enforcement officers, to students and women who are interested in learning martial arts for survival. Instructor Hameed is very personable. I strongly recommend PCA for anyone seeking self-defense training.
Cobb Martial Arts is the perfect place to take your kids to learn karate and self defense. Nory Lugo is excellent with the kids. He explains things so it's easy for them to understand and he is very patient. All the kids love him. My son has been taking classes here for almost 1 year and we couldn't have found a better place. He has learned so much and has so much fun.
Best way to be in shape and learn about self-defense .
Excellent instruction, entirely usable and efficient. Mr. Barrow is a patient and experienced teacher, and he adapts well to his students. Mark Bauerlein
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.
I provide the upmost service there is when it comes to self defense. I will get you ready for whatever come in your way.

Tactical Survival Management coaches real world self-preservation (better known as self-defense) concepts, principles, and tactics tailored to the individual, with an emphasis on general physical preparedness (GPP) conditioning. This is the same conditioning that makes everyday life easier. It makes fighting, when the need arises, easier. This training involves developing the total person: mind, body and spirit. It develops an appreciation of and a proficiency with the tools that may be necessary to preserve life, from using rocks to improvised weaponry, firearms, last-resort weaponry, and everything in-between. Tactical Survival Management is not a style, system or newfangled martial art. It is a coaching and training philosophy, which is eclectic in nature and progressive in its mission. It is training to be a better human being who can fight, in the ways, means and methods people really use to fight, rob, hurt, maim and kill, period. Tactical Survival Management prepares you to address those types of attacks and attackers. From day one, you will be a more confident, stronger, better person who can and will fight!

The Lyn Haley Defense & Combat System is a system designed to teach how to manage the flight or fright response factor of fear, and teach those willing to learn a dynamic new way of self defense and/or combat. Lyn Haley Defense & Combat system covers a vast variety of defense and combat techniques, such as defense clusters, defensive striking, offensive striking, defensive grappling, offensive grappling, weapons offense, and weapons defense. Requirements for this class are as follow: * Ages 18-40 * Any size, race and height * Woman or man * You do not have to have any experience in traditional or mixed martial arts. The charge is usually a 4-month flat rate or an installment plan ranging from $60.00-$100.00. But I am looking for 5 dedicated people to learn the system deeply in all its aspects, and to help put together demonstrations. Those 5 who are willing to do this will be free of charge.
