I would like to welcome you all to Fuse MMA. I have very high hopes and expectations for this gym
and all of the services that I am excited to bring to this community. As a Fighter, I know how
important it is to train in a variety of disciplines, and at the same time hold general
cardiovascular and muscular fitness in high regard. I feel that more of the general community
deserves to discover this sport as well as a training environment that is custom built to suit each
individual's needs, from the competitive Athlete to the recreational Martial Artist or fitness
enthusiast. With these things in mind and my family behind me 100%, I was highly motivated to
follow my dreams and build my own facility.
Fuse MMA is comprised of a few major training components, which makes me believe that we really
have something for everybody. As you can see on this website, we offer various classes and
instruction in Mixed Martial Arts, for the beginner and the advanced in skill level. We
have a great fitness element in our gym, offering Personal Training and Circuit Training
classes for students, as well as for those who do not wish to pursue MMA. Women's classes
are becoming a hit as well! We really offer something for everybody.
There are many things that I hope to accomplish with this gym. I want to provide the local
MMA community with a great facility to train in, with top-quality instruction. I want to
turn new people on to the phenomenal fitness, health, confidence, and other benefits this
sport has to offer. I want to create a family environment where we make new friends, growing
and learning together. I want to hear every individual's goals and do everything that I can to
help them make that a reality. I want to make a positive impact in the community and help make
it a better place for my children to grow up in. I want my actions to inspire others to do the
As a Fighter and a Coach, I feel that it is important to place a significant level of emphasis
on my own personal growth, constant improvement, and understanding in the areas of Mixed Martial
Arts, and I vow to continue my learning. I will take the time to regularly travel for some of the
best instruction available. I have plans to study with the some of the greatest trainers in all
areas of MMA, and bring all of that knowledge and experience back to our community at Fuse MMA.
I put my name on this business, not for purposes of inflating my ego, as I try to keep the egos out of this gym. The main reason behind this decision is to offer a guarantee to my customers. It is a constant reminder for me to keep the content relevant and valuable. I will constantly strive to offer the best that I can to my customers, getting them results! Plain and simple, I have to get my customers the results they need or I have done nothing at all. I am very confident that at Fuse MMA, anybody can find results! So come check us out. I have poured my heart and soul into this place, I hope you like it!
