I have been a member of Dion Riccardo's Victory Martial Arts in Naperville IL since the end of January 2013. A friend & member of Victory Martial Arts in Naperville IL noticed that I had a real passion about getting in getting in shape and was very interested in learning Mixed Martial Arts. This same friend introduced me to Victory Martial Arts in Naperville and made it possible for me to pay for Victory's very affordable & highly rewarding classes. My first day I walked into Victory Martial Arts Naperville I was nervous, excited, and very curious. Within the first hour of that first class I knew that I was in a very special place and the positive attitudes and warmth of the members and staff completely put me at ease which ultimately enabled me to focus my energy on learning and having fun doing so. In the eight or so months I have been training at Dion Riccardo's Victory Martial Arts in Naperville I have had training in all the practices that together make up the foundation of mixed martial arts by highly qualified decorated instructors ranging from high level white belts to brown and black belts. At Victory you can expect to learn stand-up (striking, kickboxing, etc.), grappling including wrestling & Jiu Jitsu and much more. I personally have began learning the basics of all the aforementioned practices and equally important I have learned how to be more self disciplined and how to be a better person and live a more fulfilling life in general. To this day I have gone from 308lbs. To 252lbs. In the first six months! That's 56 lbs! I couldn't have done that without the tremendous support and specialized training & conditioning offered at Victory Martial Arts in Naperville IL. Do yourself A huge favor and come in for a free trial at Dion Riccardo's Victory Martial Arts and your life will never be the same.

I enrolled my 7 year old son in the Naperville kids class in November of 2012. The class meets on Monday's and Saturdays and he absolutely loves it. He has never committed to a sport or extracurricular activity for this length of time and that is incredible. Not only is he learning all different forms of Mixed Martial Arts but also how to be a respectful and disciplined young man. The instructors are so good with the kids and make it fun for them. After observing him in all of his classes, I became inspired and enrolled myself in the adult class in December of 2012 and plan on continuing as long as I'm physically able. It is an unbelievable workout and I'm learning various MMA techiniques as well. I was a little apprehensive at first but the instructors and other students created such a comfortable environment for me. Nobody ever seems to mind lending you a hand in teaching you things you may not understand or missed. The Dojo has plenty of space and easy to work in. The cost is very reasonable for kids and adults and they even offer a free 2 week trial. In addition my wife started in the woman's kickboxing class on Wednesdays. It is so nice to see her come home with an extra sense of accomplishment. It has definitely made us both feel much happier. Now my 4 1/2 year old boy just started and is absolutely loving it. One of the things I am most impressed with is the family like atmosphere. Victory is truly a family. I am so impressed with and think I am hooked on Victory Mixed Martial Arts and invite you all to try it out. Whether you are an experienced MMA fighter or a novice, there is a home for you there

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. I’ve 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. I’ve done strength training, boxing, kickboxing, and circuits with Danny. He continues to help me break bad habits I developed from my previous boxing gym. I’m never bored with my PT sessions, I actually look forward to them and that is very important if you’re 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 isn’t just a job to him, it’s a passion. He brings a lot of experience and expertise; he has an awesome personality, is extremely positive, and wants to help you succeed.

Danny listened to my goals, created a regimen to hit those goals which included weight loss, muscle gain, targeted areas such as midsection and glutes & gave me tips for my dietary needs. Danny was fun and energetic to work with! Funny and always pushed me harder! I've lost 30lbs (starting at 170) and 11% body fat (starting at 38%) in 2-3 months with consistency,(exercise & diet) persistence & his knowledge in training! Loved when he'd mix it up with some boxing for fun and challenge! Danny is highly recommended for your fitness goals! Total bad a** in your corner!

Danny with all day fitness was amazing. He was super encouraging and enthusiastic about our sessions. He made sure I felt like I was getting the right attention and he was always open to listen to questions or spend time with me going over anything I had questions about. I would defiantly recommend. Very punctual, honest, caring and encouraging.

I took lessons and trained under Elliott for over two years, and in that entire time his teaching was nothing but outstanding. The more you put into his classes, the more you'll get out of them. Elliott can and will teach you well no matter who you are or how physically fit you think you are/aren't, and that sets him way above most dojos or whatever giant group class they offer at the park district that are just looking to make a quick buck off you. I highly recommend his private lessons if they're in your budget because there's no substitute for the way he can meet an individual student's needs and develop their strengths one-on-one, but you're guaranteed great, friendly, and personal instruction no matter which program you take.

Working with Sifu Elliott has been great! I had been looking into trying martial arts for some time and I'm glad I chose Jeet Kune Do/Filipino martial arts at All Three Fitness and Martial Arts. It is a smaller more personal environment with lots of hands on teaching in addition to being a great workout. We are always learning something new as well reinforcing previous techniques. His knowledge in martial arts and self-defense ranges from hand-to-hand combat, edged weapons, escrima sticks, and even ground tactics. What better way to learn than from someone who has put these techniques into practice? If you are serious about pursuing martial arts or self-defense I highly recommend learning from Sifu Elliott!

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.

I highly recommend Coach Qwik for anyone trying to achieve their fitness goals. He's a great fitness and life motivator and pushes you to do better. Despite the hard work he makes you put in, I am always excited for my next session. I couldn't see myself with another trainer/coach.

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!!

A friend of mine introduced me to JC's Saturday morning kickboxing class and I was quickly hooked. The kickboxing group is purposely kept at a limited amount of people, giving Justin the opportunity to interact, but more importantly, watch the client's forms to avoid injury and maximize exercise benefits. Several members in the kickboxing group also train with Justin in either small group or one-on-one sessions during the week and it's quite evident they are quite pleased with their progression and goals. He is considerate to client injuries and modifies exercises so as to not cause additional strain, while continuing to strengthen the muscles around the area. As an owner / trainer, Justin clearly maintains a friendly yet professional relationship with clients. I sincerely appreciate the fun and encouraging atmosphere and look forward to Saturday morning class. The facility itself and equipment is clean and maintained properly. If you're looking for a great gym with professional and courteous attention to clients, I highly recommend JC's Ultimate Personal Training.

Justin is one of the best trainers that I have worked with, and I have worked with several. He is completely focused on my goals, monitoring my overall training plan even when I am not at his gym. His workouts are challenging without being impossible - meant to push me to work smarter, not just work more. He is very conscious of proper form which reduces the chance of injury and he builds workouts around physical limitations when necessary. Need to change it up? Every workout session is different. Bonus points for the regularly scheduled kickboxing and yoga classes that he offers at a very reasonable price. You can't go wrong having Justin on your fitness team. A very caring trainer who has my best interests and goals in mind.

About

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.
