I enjoy dropping into gyms when I travel and the owner

John was world class. Super friendly, welcoming,

and his students were a class act.


The instruction was detailed and just when you think you’ve seen it all, you learn new little details. All of the students were very friendly and treated me with respect.


10/10 will stop by again and couldn’t recommend it more for new students.
