Gi BJJ incorporates the use of a Gi and allows the grabbing of the Gi for techniques while No-Gi just requires an athletic top and bottom and does not allow grabbing of any articles of clothing.

CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity. All CrossFit workouts are based on functional movements and these movements reflect the best aspects of gymnastics, weightlifting, running, rowing and more core movements that are reflected in everyday life. Intensity is essential for results and is measurable as work divided by time—or power. The more work you do in less time, or the higher the power output, the more intense the effort. By employing a constantly varied approach to training, functional movements and intensity lead to dramatic gains in fitness. The class goes through regular programming cycles for a focused approach not only on a daily, but weekly, and monthly basis. Learn to become the most physically functional human you can be!
Classes offered: CrossFit and Olympic Lifting
HIIT classes, short for high-intensity interval training, are the bread and butter of the fitness program. Using various functional movements the instructor will run the class through a single or a few interval exercises and/or circuits. There is less focus on lifting, more focus on lightweight/ body weight movements, still challenging and effective. The classes offer something new and fresh every day with a broad range of movements, interval settings, and games to make the workouts incredibly engaging. This program also incorporates some of the non-contact kickboxing classes. Lose weight, get toned, and have fun doing it!
Classes Offered: HIIT Fit, MMA Fit, Bag Class, and Thai Pads
