Kickboxing kicked my butt!
Tonight was the first time I've ever been in any kind of gym. I took the Fitness Kickboxing and LOVED it! The coaches are so positive and encouraging with no judgement. Kickboxing kicked my butt ... in a good way! I can't wait to come back <3

So happy I did this for myself!
Yesterday was the first time I attended a class at SBG – it was the Fitness Kickboxing class with coach Jim. I am so glad I signed up for this class. You're constantly moving and Jim makes sure you're doing everything correctly for best results and no injuries! So happy I did this for myself!

They make you feel like you belong!
Awesome gym. The people and the coaches are all amazing and great to train with. I've never been athletic and I've always been out of shape, but I have never felt like I didn't belong in the Muay Thai classes with everyone else.

Coach Jim is awesome!
My daughter and I recently enrolled in one on one Muay Thai classes and love it! Everyone is very helpful and friendly and our coach, Jim, is awesome. I would definitely recommend to anyone that’s interested in mixed martial arts.

Healthier now than I've ever been!
My son attends Kids Jiu Jitsu and I attend Fitness Performance. The coaches are phenomenal! I've never considered myself an athletic person, bu I'm healthier now in my 30s than I ever was in my 20s. I've also watched my son's talent & confidence skyrocket. SBG is our tribe!
