Josh is a goal-oriented, determined, and motivated individual who thrives off his clients growth and success. Josh brings many unique skills to the table. His accumulated talents show with his experience as a competitive wrestler, boxer in the United States Navy, and mixed martial arts instructor. Additionally, Josh has vast array of knowledge of physical fitness and nutrition; understanding the benefits of personally tapered exercises and meal plans. Aside from his talents, Josh is a positive influence to anyone's life; Josh lives a life of sobriety and is an inspiration to us all, thriving off bettering those around him. I would recommend Josh to anyone that has an interest in fitness, self-defense, and boxing.
Tom has helped me transform from an average, timid guy to a more confident, fit and aware person in only one month. This is only the beginning of my journey to bettering myself, and Tom has been an excellent catalyst. He possesses not only a wealth of information on fitness and defense but also nutrition, making him a one-stop wellness shop. Tom's approach to training is both enjoyable and fun, yet still sincere. I can't recommend him enough.
Outstanding women's self defense class. Learned a great deal of information on how to stay aware of my surroundings and be fierce when it comes to surviving an attack. I'm so glad I took this class and look forward to more! Excellent, supportive instruction. Thank you!
Joao Crus' jiu-jitsu school is by far the best martial arts program/instruction that I've experienced. However, comparing Joaos program to other martial arts schools is doing his school a disservice. Of course jiu-jitsu offers a great form of self-defense and physical discipline. However, Joaos curriculum is so much more than a method of self-defense. He advocates and provides practical tools (through jiu-jitsu) to help his students develop essential life skills (problem solving, performing under pressure, taking responsibility for personal decisions to name a few). Both my son and I have been training with Joao for several years and look forward to many more years of training at his academy.

He was spot on about what I needed to do to improve my core strength to ride my horse better. He took it carefully so I wouldn't hurt my self, as I am an older rider.
I have been doing Mike Massie Fighting Fit Boot Camp workouts for 7 months now. I got to say that I'm in the best shape of my life. I train in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and I'm giving the young guns a hard time when we roll "I'm wearing them out". I hear all the time "man I hope that I'm in half the shape your in at 49." Thanks for your awesome workouts that are never boring.
We provide secret video and photo evidence acquisition. We do spy-cam tailing and monitoring. We also offer self-defense classes and role playing sessions.
Both of my daughters have been attending Bell Sport Karate for several years. Stacey is an excellent instructor, perfectly balancing disciple and nurturing. My girls have learned to push themselves and to strive for excellence. The classes offer a great balance of art, sport, and self-defense. Advancement only comes with work, unlike other classes where you basically pay for the next color belt. My girls have learned karate, of course, but they have also learned confidence and discipline. I am forever grateful for all Bell Sport Karate has given them.
Growing up I was always athletic and in shape. Never in a million years would I have EVER thought I would have gained the weight I did and along with the weight came the depression and self loathing. I had 2 kids and it just seemed that the weight just kept adding up and I fell deeper into a hole. I tried going to the gym and "dieting" a few times only to end the in failure and more self loathing and gaining the little weight I lost back plus some. Finally one day it just hit me like a ton of bricks. I couldn't run up the stairs with my then 5 year old and 1 year old. I have been overweight and unhappy now for 8 years and if I was to start loving my body and feeling like my old self again the change needed to start in my mind. I decided to seek help with Reggie. BEST DECISION OF MY LIFE! I still tear up with gratitude and endless appreciation for what he has helped me accomplish. He didn't give me some cookie cutter work out plan like most trainers give all their clients. No. Reggie individualized my workout plan and worked with MY goals and body type. He NEVER gave up on me and constantly checked in to make sure I was keepin up with my diet and was so dedicated in all my workouts. He always give 110%. He was hard on me but praised me and motivated me when I accomplished any "small" goal. He literally was with me EVERY step of my 70 lb weight loss. I never had ANY saggy skin either because of how he trained me and the nutrition that I was consuming. Weight literally FELL off of me. I plateaued twice but he worked through it with me and kept motivating me and changing up my routine. I have ADD and get bored fast. Each and every one his workouts with me were different and exciting. I can never thank you ENOUGH for what you have done for me. You are ABSOLUTELY THE BEST TRAINER IVE EVER MET. He changed my life.
