I sought to find the best MMA fighter and trainer in the city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania who could teach me how to better my fight skills. After months of research and wasted time with other trainers and schools, I stumbled upon Don Kaecher of Personal Training Tactics.
There are many reputable teachers in the Pittsburgh area but Don immediately stuck out to me as a perfect fit, not only because of his cage tested MMA skills but because of his coaching style, leadership, diligence and patience. He is flexible and worked around my unconventional schedule of working nightclub security around the Pittsburgh area and he applied real world solutions as well as teaching me a curriculum for MMA.
Almost thirteen years later, I look back and realize how choosing Don to train me in all areas of Mixed Martial Arts was one of the best decisions I have ever made. After moving across the country to Las Vegas, Nevada, I've had many opportunities to learn from and train with some of the best coaches and fighters in all areas of MMA. I can confidently say that Don Kaecher is in the upper eschelon of the sport, earning him the respect and approval of many of the top names in MMA. He taught me all of the necessary skills to reach my personal dreams, while still remaining patient, dedicated, and a true professional.
Don is also very focused on finding each individual student's path to their own personal success and goals. He is not only a true warrior, who fought on some legendary fight cards long before the UFC became "mainstream" or trainer who helped create the local Pittsburgh MMA community, but he IS Pittsburgh Mixed Martial Arts.
Whether your dreams are to one day maybe fight in the UFC or you just want to get in shape and learn some self defense, Don Kaecher will help you. He is a true professional at what he does.
I am currently achieving my goals, and I owe it all to Don Kaecher who helped get me to where I am today. PTT will always be a part of me and I am dedicated to help others grow with PTT.
