I am a 45 year old mother of a teenage girl. I started going to fit club about a year ago because they had a cardio kickboxing class and I wanted to lose a few pounds. I ended up loving it so much that I started taking Muay Thai, which is traditional kickboxing from Thailand, with coach “T”. As someone who spent the better half of their life in ballet classes, I never thought I would like martial arts. I love it. I think it’s great for people of all ages, especially women. I also take cardio kickboxing with Andreina, and circuit training with Chuck and Joe. Each coach is better than the last. This place is very professional (they train real boxers), and everyone is so nice that it feels like family.
For the past year, I have been exercising with Joe’s Ultimate Fitness class. I am a women transformed. I came into the gym thinking I would never see the figure of my youth. In some ways, I was right. I am thinner and more toned then I was in my 20’s. Joe and Sarah have built a gym around families. My three children all wrestle Jiu Jitsu. They are more confident, stronger and more respectful under the watchful eye of Joe and Gabriella. We ALL look forward to our next class and will for a long time to come.
A couple of hours after class yesterday Maggie said to me, “Today was a great day! I got to go against all three coaches and they told me I was good. I didn’t know they thought I was good! I feel so good about myself.” I can’t thank you enough for letting me hear my peanut say that. Maggie is a super sensitive kid who hasn’t always had it easy. So, if she gets nothing else out of Jui Jitsu but feeling good about herself, I will be eternally thankful!

My two boys and I have been training with Joe for 2 years now, and it’s the best thing that’s happened to us since moving to Fairfield! I love that my boys can do their JiuJitsu, Muay Thai, and MMA and I can do my Ultimate Fitness classes, all at the same place. Joe is so great with all of the kids- they love him- and all of the adults do too. He has an incredible way of making people feel good and at the same time, making them want to work their hardest, and achieve their best. I’ve seen my boys get stronger and more confident since working with Joe, and I’ve become stronger and more fit since taking Joe’s classes. I have yet to see anything else that compares to this gym- it’s truly a unique establishment which fosters respect, learning, and community, while at the same time creating strong and confident individuals.
Being a former D-1AA football player on a championship program I always loved the competition, hard work, and a good workout. I’ve always considered myself an in shape and a well-rounded athlete- that’s until I stepped into training sessions with Joe.
Ive been through tough games and workouts in my football career, but nothing has pushed me more to my limits like Joe has during the sessions. After football, I’ve found my new adrenaline rush- Fit Club baby!!!
