Ready to get started?  We have three trial/introductory options available to choose from – just click on one below to start your enrollment.  Once your purchase has gone through, we will email you to get your first visit scheduled.   Please note that all options below are available to local residents only.

Learning proper technique on things like barbell or kettlebell lifts is much easier in a 1-on-1 setting than in a class.  With that in mind, the Introductory Combo (three personal training sessions and two weeks of classes, $190) is our recommended option for those wanting to get the most out of the classes right away.  Starting off with some individual instruction is the perfect way to set you up for success, and to make you feel more confident before jumping into classes.  If you are interested specifically in kettlebells then we strongly encourage this option to help expedite the learning curve of those movements.

If you elect to go with the 2-week trial of classes without personal training, then it begins with an initial orientation session (scheduled by appointment) to show you around the gym and make sure you know what to expect in classes.  This orientation also includes a quick assessment called a “movement screen” to determine if there are any areas of mobility we think you would benefit from working on – note that our kettlebell technique class has minimum requirements for mobility before participation.

The 2-week trial (either stand alone or with the Introductory Combo that includes three personal training sessions) includes access to the following classes:

  • S.P.E.A.D.
  • Strength & Conditioning
  • Kettlebell Technique (pending your score on the movement screen)
  • Grappling Fundamentals
  • Jiu Jitsu
  • Women’s Jiu Jitsu
  • No Gi Jiu Jitsu
  • Kickboxing

If you still have questions you’d like to ask before getting started with one of the three options above, please use this form and we will get back to you ASAP.
