Here’s what some of the members have to say……
“As a working father, time is not what I would like it to be. Attending other gyms was time consuming and ineffective for me, due to having to sign up repeatedly for classes and waiting for equipment. I also require that little extra push to reach my fitness goals. MMA University provides me with the opportunity to attend a wide variety of classes on a consistent basis without having to decrease time spent on other aspects of my life. And don’t let anyone tell you that a 60 minute workout isn’t enough. In the short time I have been attending MMAU, the cardio and strength training combination has provided me with more energy at work and with my son. I’ve lost 4.5 inches on my waist already and still have a long way to go.. But that’s a different story. The atmosphere is very friendly yet professional, and conducive to working hard in a manner that suits each member showing you results immediately. This has definitely been the best and most successful workout experience I’ve ever been a part of. There is no doubt the benefits will continue. So to anyone that is thinking of joining, my only question is… What are you waiting for???”

“When i was asked to write something about MMA University I was very honored in being asked. I have never been apart of a group or club that has such a great atmosphere as MMA University. The Staff is so helpful and friendly that you feel at home as soon as you walk in through the doors.
For a guy like myself that has had no experience in any Martial Art, or fitness, MMA University drastically changed my life. In less than a month I have cirum past my goal of weight lose and physical strength. I have tried all the various classes offered by MMA University from Yoga, to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and expect to continue in all of them. On average of training just a few times a week I find I have more energy and feel great, and with every class I attend and participate in I push myself further bit by bit, and notice a significant difference in my abilities and performance. MMA University all the way.”
