When I found Erich, I thought I was signing up for someone to help me lose weight; however, I got so much more. Erich takes a sustainable, holistical approach to food and exercise. He doesn’t promote the latest trend on food or fitness but rather helps you to look at food completely differently to achieve your best self. I couldn’t recommend Erich more. Whether you want to lose weight, gain muscle or just get a handle on your food intake, Erich will be a blessing to your journey.

I’ve been doing one-on-one MMA/self defense and conditioning work with Kyle for two years and have been very pleased with his instruction. His technical fight knowledge as great and he has an incredible focus on fundamentals while continuously pushing me to do more and learn new things. He has enough technical knowledge and conditioning knowledge to make every session a well-balanced workout and he is a great morivator. I would recommend training with kyle for anyone interested in self-defense, beginning fighters, experienced fighters or even anyone just trying to get in shape!

I was looking for a self defense class just so I can be prepared if/when anything ever occurs that would call for me to keep myself safe. Mark was thorough and we got right to the point. In my first lesson I learned stances, elbow strikes, phrases, to be alert and fully present, and so much more. I can't believe we fit it all into just an hour. I felt so energized and better prepared even after the first lesson. I am definitely going back to learn more.
