Shortly after college I stepped into my first martial arts gym as a way to get back in shape. Little did I know my life would be changed forever. My love for martial arts led me to compete in amateur Muay Thai, no-gi jiu jitsu, and mixed martial arts. Competing made me re-evaluate my diet and I later pursued a career in nutrition. I have now been practicing martial arts for over 10 years and love teaching others what I have learned over the years. Martial arts has taught me values such as discipline and respect, while also being a great confidence builder for its self-defense aspects. My goal is create a fun workout environment that meets people where they are at while still being challenging physically and mentally. Hope to see you in the gym soon!

Hi, Kylie here :) I had been babysiting for 5 years when I started my journey doing boxing and jiu jitsu. I started classes as a form of self defense classes and ended up falling in love with it. I have always loved being around and working with children. After I began helping with Brazilian Top Team's kids program, I really fell in love coaching the littles! Since starting I have grown a lot in both boxing/jiu jitsu and as a person. Martial Arts has boosted my self esteem and given me more resposibilities, which has really helped me become more of an independent and strong young woman.
