At Victory Martial Arts in Naperville you can tell that the teachers are genuinely invested in you--the instructors actually care. That made a big difference for me when selecting an MMA school. The culture in this dojo is very special. You can describe it as a family, but it is more than that. What is special about Victory is that its students are not only there to learn, but also to contribute to the success of others. I have been training consistently for 1 year at Victory alongside fighters experienced in the cage and other novices like myself. I feel I have quickly improved in strength, body composition, skill and flexibility. These improvements are a testament not only to the high quality of instruction, but also to the culture and fellow students I train along side with. I could not keep this experience to myself--I signed up my 6 year boy in the kids MMA class (I am looking forward to enrolling my other boy when he becomes old enough). The kids MMA class is more than learning mixed martial arts--it is also about learning to become better people. The instructors keep each child engaged throughout the class. Learning to 'focus' is key; something that I found lacking in the kids programs at other local Karate park district classes and Tae Kwon Do schools. My wife has also got in on the action. The weekly woman's kickboxing class has added spice to her workout routine. If you or your family is looking for a martial arts school, I strongly recommend giving Victory Martial Arts in Naperville a shot. They offer a no pressure 2-week free trial and the school is very affordable.
A gym Danny was previously employed at paired me up with him as my trainer. I signed up there after spending two years at a boxing gym. My goal at the time was to incorporate more strength training into my routine, but continue boxing from time to time as that is a workout I truly enjoy. Ive been training with Danny now for almost a year. Prior to working with him, I had a lot of mixed feelings about working with a Personal Trainer. I no longer feel that way. Ive done strength training, boxing, kickboxing, and circuits with Danny. He continues to help me break bad habits I developed from my previous boxing gym. Im never bored with my PT sessions, I actually look forward to them and that is very important if youre just starting off making a lifestyle change, or continuing to maintain a healthy lifestyle. In June 2015, Danny put me up to a challenge to lose 6 lbs before my next weigh in with him, and with hard work and determination, I lost 8 lbs that month! This was after bouncing around the same weight for the past few years. This gave me the motivation to participate in a 90 day challenge at my gym, which led to me getting back down to my High School weight from 20 years ago. I highly recommend Danny has a trainer. His work with clients isnt just a job to him, its a passion. He brings a lot of experience and expertise; he has an awesome personality, is extremely positive, and wants to help you succeed.
Elliott has been my personal trainer for over three years now. I am 59y/o and have worked out all my life. Elliott is the best trainer I have ever worked with. He is affordable, inspiring, and leads by example. He walks the walk. He designs a program that has put me in the best fitness of my life. And I enjoy feeling this way. My favorite part of the program is kickboxing!!! Check him out!!! You won't be disappointed, I promise. That is if you are serious about getting in shape.
Ryan knew what he was doing and got me to loose my baby weight the healthy way! He didn't just stop at the gym, he had me eating better and gave me great advice as to what I could be doing at home to help! Great guy, great business, and great results! Thankyou again Ryan!
Coach Qwik is an excellent instructor. He is hands on and pushes me to compete. I look forward to the training and to becoming an excellent fighter.
I highly recommend hiring Jessica. She is so knowledgeable about the body and knows exactly what your body needs! Every workout is individualized daily and she really uses your strengths to build up your weaknesses. She not only has a vast array of skills, but she is also super kind and makes you feel extremely comfortable. I am doing yoga and kickboxing and my husband is doing yoga with her and we could not ask for a better trainer!!
I've know Nick for several years and have never been disappointed with his training sessions. his non traditional methods are a challenge but they produce results. We have done many things from Kettlebell training, obstacle courses, used indian clubs, and gymnast rings. Nick will mix it up and not bore you. He has a vast amount of knowledge and is willing to share what he knows to get the best out of anyone willing to dig deep inside themselves. Aside from my experience in the military Nick is the most intense person I have ever trained with. He is tough, does not sugar coat anything and will tell you if you're doing something wrong. If you're looking for someone to hold your hand and tell you what you want to hear then Nick is not the guy for you. If you're looking for someone to push you beyond your limits and tell it to you how it is then this is the guy. As long as you're mentally tough and not a quitter you will greatly benefit from the experience.
I should start by saying that, while I often read them, I NEVER write reviews. That being said I felt that my experience warranted one in this case. I first met coach Miguel at a place called Hybrid Martial Arts & Fitness, which I strongly recommend looking into if you have any interest in trying out or further improving your skills in Taekwondo, MMA, Muay Thai, BJJ (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) and more. The staff is quite friendly and have shown me nothing but kindness since my first day there. Additionally the vibe is not an egotistical one, a problem that definitely exists at other gyms. Regardless of your amount of experience everyone is welcome and everyone is safe. But I digress. Initially I went to Hybrid to hone my skills in the sport of boxing. I took some group classes then started training with Miguel one-on-one. Now you should know that before I even came to Hybrid I had a strong foundation in the fundamentals of boxing and have learned from men and women alike over the last 4 years who have either boxed competitively or have been practitioners of the sport for a long time. It was not until I began training with Miguel that I realized how much I still had to learn to truly become a boxer. Each and every session is well thought out. Of course the basics came into play first, there were many foot work drills along with heavy bag work, mitt work, as well as thorough concentration on head movement and sparring. What really impresses me with Miguel is that he takes time to learn about your background in other areas and will then incorporate it into your training regimen. For example, I have a background in wushu (kung fu) and a little experience in taekwondo. With that in mind, Miguel was able to take very small elements of what I had learned in those practices, specifically foot work, and tie them into my training as a boxer. This was very unique, in my opinion, because it helped me to not only better my skills but also create a certain style and become a boxer of my own. Every session was educational and challenging. Sparring is safe and controlled, never overbearing. Most importantly, Miguel has a bonafide passion for his craft. Encouraging, punctual, and dedicated are just a few of the words I would use to describe him. If you have even the slightest interest in boxing, or any combat sport, I strongly recommend signing up with coach Miguel. He's nothing short of a true martial artist. You won't be disappointed.
I highly recommend this gym because it is very important to me that the person who trains you knows what they are doing and coach Danny Aguirre, is MMA fighter currently active, with great experience and patience to teach.He is always attentive and corrects errors to improve the technique, every time I go to the gym I learn something new and put me in better shape, I'm 40 years old and I like to have people of all ages training with me, it's great for people of all ages beginners or advanced, here you can find Muay Thai and Grappling classes

I am not some meathead fitness model trainer who gets by on their looks and genetics. I am a lifelong martial arts practitioner. I dig deep into the science of exercise and weight management. I understand the importance of exercise for a happy and healthy life but i also am down to earth and easy to get along with. In 2015 I developed Cancer and had to go through 2 major surgeries as well as 3 months for Chemotherapy treatment. It was very hard for me to go through and was incredibly humbling. Since then i have quit my corporate fitness job and went on an international trip for 5 weeks. Now I'm ready to bring my skills from the corporate world to the public. I'm willing to work with you to design a customized program that will get you the results you are looking for. I have worked with the most fitness-challenged to amateur fighters. I have a ton of ideas, portable training gear, and knowledge to share.
