I've worked with Aaron on various occasions and all of them have been a great experience. I'm an ectomorph who struggled for years being extremely thin and in horribly weak shape. At 25 years old I was 5'11" 126 lbs and ate a horrible diet. I was lethargic all the time, was in constant pain in my joints, and had lingering back pain that I couldn't seem to get rid of. When working with Aaron one of the first things he coached me on was eating a more balanced diet that would pertain to my needs of gaining quality muscle and to feed my body with the nutrients I needed to make the progress that I was looking for. He then guided me through workouts emphasizing proper form and technique for maximum results that pertained to my particular needs. On top of the tips on dieting and finding a good routine for me, one of the most exciting benefits I've learned from Aaron about proper exercise that's complimented by a good self massage routine, is my lack of back pain anymore. Being an avid golfer I would be tight and in pain a few months out of the year. But through Aaron showing me self massaging techniques I have managed to keep a good, strong, solid, and balanced core to keep me enjoying golf as much as I'd like without the constant annoyance of never ending back tightness. After using a few trainers in my past it was nice to finally find a knowledgeable, non pushy, enthusiastic trainer who truthfully is interested in helping people be healthier and live a better quality of life. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Everyone is so positive here! It's been an awesome experience for my son. He is taught in a manner that is respectful and sincere, which in turn has helped him to be the same way too. He has learned to concentrate and has gained self confidence. This is a place of business but feels more like family.

I have been training with Joel for about 6 months now. He has helped me to improve my MMA and self-defensive techniques. He is working with me on my striking, kicking, boxing, and takedowns. I am impressed with his enthusiastic passion for the sport and martial arts, and his willingness to work at the pace that I need and his patience with giving me the extra time when needed. Joel is always on time and is very flexible with scheduling the days and times that do not interfere with my school and work schedule. The quality of Joel's teaching, techniques, and professionalism is very good. Overall, my experience is positive and there is nothing that I would recommend he changes.

My first time experience was Excellent! He thoroughly went over instructions and defense moves but even when I wasn’t sure or did the moves incorrectly he made sure I got the moves down packed even if that was the last thing he did. This is why I think he is a great defense teacher. He didn’t let the minor problems I had in my execution of certain movements slide he addressed them and kept addressing them until I got them right which was great. I can’t wait for my next session. - Nya

I'm a busy mom of 3 that is not going to hit the gym and get all sweaty at 5am, which is the only time I'd be able to go. After having three children, I had gained a little weight with each child and never lost it all. I was ready to make a change so that I could feel good in my own skin. Joe came along side always encouraging me that I was capable and could accomplish my goals. He changed up my workouts for me so I'd never get bored and he really helped me with my nutrition to see how many calories I should be eating and where I should be getting those calories from. I was able to do those workouts in my own home while teaching my children the importance of physical fitness. He's very knowledgeable and most importantly to me, I never felt like he looked down at me because I was fat. He wanted me to reach my best self and encouraged me in a friendly gentle way, not a drill sergeant kind of way. It's exactly what I needed and I've lost 22 pounds! Thanks Callari Killer Fitness!

I've worked with Kevin for a year privately, and I can thoroughly recommend him. He's a great guy to be around and his skillset is unparalelled. If you're looking to be a MMA champion or just get some basic self defence skills, Sensei Kane should be your first call.

Mr. Kauffman is an amazing instructor. He works with the students on a closer basis than most academies. My son absolutely loves this place and we wouldn't go anywhere else.

If your looking to learn Martial Arts for Self Defense or for the History of it this is the School to attend. Classes are small which allow the Teachers to work you more closely. I would highly recommend the school to young or old.
