Fight Fitness is a complete self-defense and survival fitness program that combines physical strength, endurance, power development, physical, mentally and emotional conditioning to help find your fight time, strike count and the best combinations that work for you.

Fight Fitness has combined kickboxing, cage fitness, and various other hybrid exercise programs and martial arts physical fitness systems into one complete comprehensive delivery and is the final level in learning how to defend yourself and improve your own physical limitations by combining real world survival skills with a built in self-defense program for every workout.

Our Fight Fitness Program will train you to develop your own survival and fighting profile and learn your own survival time, discover what works for them and what doesn’t in a variety of self-defense scenarios, and most importantly give you the tools to win in life threatening situations.

Take the challenge and teach your students how to take an active role in their own survival program and get incredibly fit at the same time!

Training Programs are built in Levels, ranging from 1-5. Instructors are certified in each level in a four-day training program format. Training is hands on and as well as lecture and demonstration. Trainees will be certified as Instructors by after successfully completing each training program.

Fight Fitness does more than kickboxing or martial arts moves to music as there is NO MUSIC when conducting a fight fitness workout or a special rhythm or beat; it teaches you breathing control and focus and combines real world survival skills that has a built in self-defense program into every workout.

You will know your fight time, you will know what works for you and what doesn’t and you will develop your own survival profile. Take the challenge and know your limits so you can take an active role in your own survival program!
