I was in town for work and decided to stop in and train as a visitor and this academy was outstanding. Everyone was welcoming, the instruction was structured and well demonstrated, and the academy was clean and organized. Highly recommended them to anyone that needs to continue training when away from home.

Great instruction in the adults and kids class. Prof and coaches are very attentive and the gym stays clean. But the reason I rate it a 2.5 ⭐️ is price $$$$. It’s soooo expensive to train here. I moved from Oregon and the GB there was $310 for a family of 4. Kids prices for this school here are pretty ridiculous… (they charge the same for adults VS child $180). unfortunately I’m looking to go elsewhere this coming month.
