Elin designed a creative program to help my 9 year old son prepare for his martial arts tournaments. My son definitely made improvements in his strength, agility and stamina. Elin was also able to fine tune his kicking and blocking skills since he has experience in various self defense/fighting skills. Elin is quick to respond to emails/text/calls and has tremendous knowledge in the art of exercise, bodybuilding and nutrition. I highly recommend Elin and his team for anyone looking for a professional personal trainer.
My two teenage daughters and I trained with David, our instructor, with Falcon Security. It was the best decision we have ever made! Not only did we learn skills to protect ourselves, but we now feel empowered! I know my daughters will be more careful and ready at a momemt's notice to defend and protect themselves, heaven forbid should they need to! As for myself, I have a true confidence that should I find myself in an unsafe situation, I can handle it without a shadow of a doubt. David was spot on with his lessons. He conveyed what can happen to any of us but did so in a professional way. I know he really cared about our well-being and he took our lessons to heart every session. He pointed out scenarios that the girls have never yet contemplated and then gave them the skills to handle what ever can happen. At 17 and 18 it was time for them to learn self defense. David was awesome and I couldn't be happier with the results!
I came to Brian in January of 2015. I have struggled with my weight, self image, and self confidence my entire life. At 42 years old, 5 foot 7, and 276 pounds I was desperately out of shape, weak, and in need of guidance. Every attempt I'd made in my adult life to lose weight and keep it off was miserable failure. I'd gained and lost hundreds of pounds. If you can think of a fitness gimmick, I've tried it. NutriSystem, Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, Beach Body, Herbalife, all of them! None worked long term. Today, 5 months after starting with Brian I have lost 30 pounds, gotten incredibly stronger in all measurable ways, lost 6 inches off my waist, and I feel amazing! Brian teaches you that the key to long term success is to build strength to support your bodies efforts to be lean and fit. He doesn't promise any quick fixes or miracle cures. It is dedication and hard work that get you to your goals. Every session is packed from start to finish with exercises that keep me moving, burning fat, and gaining strength! No excuses, no escapes...you come to him to get results and he will give those to you as long as you put in the work! For the first time in my life I'm excited about my body, the way it is transforming and the changes I can see in myself every single week. Do yourself a favor...if you need help to get to the fitness level you want, then call Brian...talk to him, meet him for a workout and see what can happen with experienced guidance at your side! The results will amaze you...they do me! --Donno Cole Fairfax, VA
I’ve been taking self defense lessons with Anthony for about 3 months now and it has been great. He breaks down movements and explains things in a way that’s easy for a beginner to understand, and is great at tailoring workouts to my needs. I work in an emergency room where patients often become violent, and Anthony takes situations I’ve seen or my co-workers have seen and shows me how to defend myself. You can tell from your first session with Anthony that he not only is an expert in what he does, but that he loves what he does. He makes working out fun. I leave our sessions completely exhausted, as he works you hard for the full time. He’s also great at working around my crazy schedule. I enjoy our sessions so much I’ve been passing out his business cards to all my work friends!
I had so much fun taking the 4 hour permit to carry class. The instructors were halarious. The class was hands on and interactive. I wasn't so comfortable with the thought of conceal carring at first because I am a petite woman but they helped me with that. They also helped me get over my fear of shooting at the range. I look forward to taking more 1 hour shooting lessons with them.
My experience with XStrengthSpeed has been challenging and well worth the investment! Several of my health challenges have been reversed, my range of motion is better from an old injury and my doctor is well pleased with my progress to date. Xavier is a coach, motivator and athlete all in one. He genuinely cares about his clients and makes every effort to accommodate my demanding schedule. He checks in regularly to find out if I am resting properly or eating well to meet my goals. If you are looking to change your body, get healthy or change your quality of life, I highly recommend XStrengthSpeed!
I attended Z's self defense class for women presented to my daughter's soccer team. He gave the girls (age 15 - 18) practical, useful self defense advice and techniques. More important, he emphasized to these young girls that they have a RIGHT and the ABILITY to demand their personal space be maintained and to keep out those they CHOOSE to not invade it. Further, he shared with them strategies to stay safe in this urban area. I have taken "women's self defense" classes with other providers who basically tell women to live in fear, roll up the windows, hide, etc. Z tells women to LIVE but live wisely, live smart, be aware and that they are masters of their bodies and space. In addition to the advice, the exercises were fun and quite a workout. I highly recommend him.
In the short time that I have been training at Virginia Okinawan Karate, I've learned so much about kata and how every movement has a practical application. Sensei teaches in a fun, motivating way. The upper belts are always willing to stay around after class to help you. While my schedule is busy, every minute of training with Sensei and the class is invigorating and motivating. I've trained for more than 10 years in other styles and recently just came back to martial arts. I am so grateful to have found this place. I highly recommend training at Virginia Okinawan Karate. The class structure and curriculum is ideal for adult practitioners. You'll have fun and learn practical self defense skills.
Joshua is a phenomenal teacher and fighter of BJJ, Kickboxing and MMA. He tailors to your specific strengths and weaknesses, so that you get maximum value out of each class. He focuses on technique, fighting concepts, conditioning all the while ensuring you have fun during the process. Learning is everything here and he encourages self-filming or bringing in a partner to train with at no extra charge. The gym in a good shape, with all the necessary equipment and padding you would associate with MMA gyms. Joshua is constantly making improvements to the gym to keep it competitive and in good condition. He has many different types of classes and he is very flexible. It is no wonder why he has such a following, his knowledge and sincerity is rare in this industry.
I have been attending self defense classes with Talal for several months now. He is an amazing coach: very professional and at the same time he has fun personality. Classes are never boring! I'm looking forward to continue working with him.

As a Military Police Platoon Leader, security is much more than a job for me. It's a calling. And everyone who works for me shares that calling. SHADOW exists to protect what you can't afford to lose.
When I met breelaun, I had just stepped foot into a gym for the very first time in 19 years!! I didn't have the motivation, was very self-conscious, and was very intimidated by the machines. breelaun didn't make me feel like a big out of shape loser. He is very patient, and knowledgeable on fitness & nutrition. He's super laid back and not your typical "military" style trainer. Don't get me wrong, there were times I whined & said I was tired, & he'd let me rest for a little (like 1 minute) lol & get back to working out .Most important, I was very comfortable with him. I am very happy I made the choice of getting training w/breelaun & have made major changes in my lifestyle.breelaun is the best. Very serious about getting you to achieve your personal best while maintaining a fun environment. It's important to enjoy your workouts and breelaun makes sure that you have a good time. !!!! Thanks BREE BREE ;)
The atmosphere was very flexible and comfortable. The course is designed to meet the needs of the students, and the instructor is always adapting to the needs of each student. You can freely ask question, practice what you want, and ask for help when you need it.

I have teaching karate (kempo), judo, and some weapons system for twenty years. I am an excellent one-on-one teacher.
I've been training with Julien about two years now. It began as an at home training experience, and sometimes we would meet at the gym and do some weight training. Many times we worked out at a local park. I've enjoyed working out with Julien because of the sometimes unorthodox exercises that he would do. I lost a lot of weight working with him, and increased my 5k race pace. I enjoy that he draws inspiration from many disciplines such as yoga, meditation, martial arts, weight training, parkour, etc. I think if he had his own gym in a centrally located place it would be awesome. In his gym, he could have jungle-gym inspired equipment in addition to weight training equipment, so we could have a gym (indoors) that would support his style of training. As he grows, perhaps this is what will happen one day :)
Difference between a fighter and a martial artist are the core values that make up the foundation of the martial art (integrity, perseverance, self control, and modesty).

Junaid is someone that greatly helped me in my life. He not only helped me get fit physically, but really encouraged my mindset as a person. I've been handicap and in a wheelchair my entire life and fitness has been a difficult prospect for me. But Junaid truly believed in me, he encouraged me to believe that nothing is impossible even in my situation. He worked with me to develop specific exercises that I could do with the range that I have. He encourages me regularly to push last my limits physically and believe I can achieve my goals no matter what. I highly recommend him. He will work with you and develop physical exercises that are tailored to your strengths. He'll take your weakness and teach you to develop them into strengths. He's truly fantastic.
