What Our Customers Say About Us
I checked out the Saturday morning kickboxing class…No experience required, they were great about stopping by to tailor my workout to my level since the rest of the class appears to be regulars. First class is complementary, though I can’t imagine anyone leaving and not wanting to sign up for more…For the recreational fitness junkie, this is a fun workout, high calorie burn, my arms are already sore (and we just got done 2 hours ago), fun change of pace from the normal routine, and an empowering experience.
For those who have not heard of Cichon, he is a stand-up fighting wizard who runs CELLAR FIGHT AND FITNESS. I was blown away watching Chris hold mitts/pads and discussing foot work, head movement and combinations. I have seen a lot of people hold mitts/pads in my time, but no one with the deep understanding and fluidity that I was seeing from Chris.
Shane DeZee (Pro MMA Fighter)
Our son has been going to The Cellar Gym for almost three years. He loves his instructors and everything he is learning about martial arts. We love all the positive life lessons that go along with it. Highly recommend checking out the Cellar Gym!
Honestly the most nicest gym out there. Couldn’t have gotten a better greeting, and it just felt like home. All of the trainers are approachable and kind, and the facility is matted by quality Zebra mats. I recommend this place to all levels of experience!
Our instructors are like no other. It’s amazing. This might be the most I’ve sweat in a class thus far.
Michelle Donovan (BJJ Student)
Beginner’s BJJ is a wonderful blend of technique, philosophy and exercise. You will learn the basics and get a great workout, while at the same time dig below the surface of a complex martial art.
Such a great place to train! Quality instruction by teachers who truly are the best around! I have been looking for such a facility for a couple years, and I’m so grateful I found The Cellar!! You guys ROCK!
