learn about our Programs




ImpactFit is our Strength and Conditioning team based fitness program open to individuals looking to start their fitness journey to individuals with a consistent exercise regimen. ImpactFit utilizes the correct technique of everyday functional movements incorporated from areas of high-intensity interval training, gymnastics, running, weightlifting, and powerlifting to build muscle, enhance endurance, burn fat, boost confidence, improve flexibility, and train with our positive, inspiring, and motivating community.

This is a broad and inclusive fitness program, offering universal scalability of load and intensity to develop the physical performance of any committed individual and athlete with any level of experience and supports them through measurable, observable, and repeatable results.

Our coaches are experienced in teaching beginners and developing athletes, competing in CrossFit competitions, and are certified in areas ranging through CrossFit specialties such as trainers, weightlifting, and anatomy and the American Council of Exercise as personal trainers.

ImpactFit Endurance


ImpactFit Endurance classes are designed for any fitness level to promote fat loss, build lean muscle and strength, and improve speed and work capacity through aerobic exercise.

This class consists of High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) workouts using minimal amount of rest to increase your fitness and energy capacity for longer periods of time to handle higher workloads or a high intensity day.

By developing aerobic capacity, muscles create a greater adaption to the workload, leading to lifting more weight, increasing the ability to train for longer periods of time, and improving your recovery times, stamina, lactate threshold, and speed.

ImpactFit Mobility


Impact Mobility is a group of physical and mental practices and disciplines designed to increase strength, recovery after workouts, range of motion, release tight areas which are hindering performance, breathing mechanics, joint integrity, movement patterns and enhance mental control, focus, and concentration.

This program is created and developed to help you reach your goals as well as your toes. It is designed for teaching breathing techniques to maintain heart rate and blood pressure throughout exercise, practicing mobility and flexibility poses to allow individuals to hit better positions in strength and combat sports, and improve the core muscles for increased stabilization, posture, and coordination. 

By learning and incorporating proper breathing techniques, it will improve mental recovery, range of movement, muscle stretch ability, and tighten your core muscles.

Barbell Club


Impact Zone Barbell Club is a USA-Weightlifting club for individuals looking to learn or build their technique for the Olympic lifts, which include the Clean and Jerk and Snatch. 

This program incorporates a variety of movements with the barbell such as deadlift, squat, clean, snatch, push press, and many more. 

Each student works at different levels to build core muscles, strength, technique, and mobility to help accomplish the lifts with greater confidence, power, and intensity.

Personal Training


Personal training consists of the individualized fitness programming catered to your goals which is implemented through private or semi-private sessions. This program focuses on areas of health, fitness, strength, endurance, speed, coordination, weight loss, nutrition, and lean muscle.

Our coaches are experienced in working with individuals who are just beginning an exercise regimen to high level athletes looking for more advanced training. All of our coaches are certified trainers.

Private Martial Arts Lesson


Private lessons are for individuals looking to start or are currently involved in areas of martial arts, such as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and kickboxing, seeking to learn or fine-tune their skills through independent and intensive coaching with our world class coaches.

Private Martial Arts Lesson finds a flexible schedule to work with you and keep you accountable to help you achieve your fitness and training goals.


Ladies Fitness Bootcamp


Ladies Only Fitness Bootcamp is a high intensity total-body workout designed for ladies to get started in an exercise environment. We promote a fun, energetic, and positive environment of ladies ready to train together and help you accomplish your fitness goals.

We collaborate our expertise in CrossFit, bootcamps, HIIT (high-intensity interval training), endurance, and mobility to design workouts using bodyweight exercises, circuit training, combining sprint intervals, high intensity interval training, jogging, and obstacle challenges to burn more fat and calories and tone your entire body.


Children's Self Defense


Children’s self-defense teaches each child the necessary skills in self-defense techniques to protect themselves and improving their life skills in areas of honesty, respect, humility, and hard work in a fun and educational team environment.

Our coaches incorporate their experience from all of our programs to develop exercises such as rolling, running, and defensive positions to teach your children how to protect themselves safety and effectively, build their physical strength and mental confidence, and improve their overall health.



Our kickboxing workouts are geared toward beginners to simultaneously burn fat, sculpt muscles, and get your body in great shape. Our program is an exhilarating workout with realistic self-defense training in a fun team environment.

Each student works at their own pace to learn basic moves in self-defense such as the use of punching, kicking, defensive techniques, striking, and foot placement. Kickboxing develops anaerobic and aerobic fitness, builds muscle strength, and improves coordination, agility, and balance.

Our coaches compete in amateur and professional MMA fights, cornered dozens of kickboxing matches, achieved the status of a pro champion, and are experienced in training kickboxers from an amateur level to the professional level.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Gi and No-Gi


Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a submission grappling based martial art incorporating techniques from classical jiu-jitsu, judo, and wrestling used to teach self-defensive tactics and increase physical fitness to take a challenger to the ground. Military special forces are taught through the techniques of BJJ to effectively gain the upper hand in hand-to-hand combat.

This program trains under Team ATOS - one of the top BJJ teams under Black Belt world champion André Galvão. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is coached by a member of the USA Grappling World Team and by coaches with over 10 years of experience training and competing in the BJJ/ Grappling world at the state, regional, and national level.

Our experienced coaches dedicate themselves to teaching and leading others to build strength and experience through Basic and Advanced level classes and lead our athletes to enhance their physical fitness, increase knowledge of self-defense techniques, and compete in competitions all over the world.
