Because training is hard. It’s physical. Just like with any positive adversity, the rewards come from pushing through. Especially in the start, you will have periods when something will go down in your daily life that will put more stress on you, maybe make you feel tired. You start slipping, skipping training sessions and before you know it, it’s been so long that it’s awkward going back. That’s why we try to encourage upfront commitment, to help you get into a cycle of consistent improvement. That’s the only way to get the true benefits of Training, the magic that happens when you start to get a hang of it.
Many think they are paying to use the gym and that is partly accurate but not entirely how or why it is basically industry standard. What a gym membership is for is ensuring that you have a place that is going to provide expert-level training or equipment with certified instructors or trainers. What it also does is ensure you have a reserved spot at the gym. Now the cool part is you have a spot. You can come into any class you are set up to and train as much as you like and there will always be a place for you. You will always have an instructor to train you and that instructor will probably have spent as much time training as a doctor attending school. It takes a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt an average of 10+ years to obtain the skill to be awarded a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Professor Chico, Professor Jimmy, Professor Chuck and Professor Shane all have spent a decade more training on the mats. Not to mention the length of dedication and time to become a Marine Corps Hall of Fame Boxing Coach like Coach Calvin or a Muay Thai Fighter like Coach Dara or Coach Alex or Coach Brad Now if you choose to not come to that spot, it is still being reserved, and this is where the stigma and negativity from memberships come from. What you are actually doing with a gym membership is paying for your reserved position to train at the facility. We staff enough instructors, staff, mat space, training space, equipment, cleaning staff, cleaning supplies and much more to ensure that no matter how many people we have that everyone has a spot. As you can also see the Combat Club specifically has grown immensely in recent years and with that we have added more facilities, training spaces, classes, instructors and more to meet the need for the demand. This is why memberships usually have a duration. They provide the gym and the member the stability to ensure they are going to get what was offered during a trial or during their first day all the way until their last day of training at a gym. It is often industry-standard to auto-renew memberships unless you cancel because unless you tell us you do not want your spot that you signed up for, we are going to make sure it is there for you to use and train until you tell us you do not need it. What we wanted to do is actually remove the stigma and negativity that comes with a membership. If you are concerned about weird membership agreements and gotchas definitely meet the people that train in the gym, along with the staff and instruction available. Look at the consistency of the facility to provide high quality training and equipment.
If you are trying out a class for the first time, we recommend bringing a mouth guard, hand wraps, water, comfortable workout attire, and wearing flip flops, sandals or crocs as footwear. Hand wraps are required to take Muay Thai and USA Boxing. A Mouth Guard is required to train in every class. We have these items for sale if you need to purchase them. See the front desk, they will be happy to help.
We offer a two-day trial for $10. You and or children can train any of our BJJ, Muay Thai or USA Boxing classes for two days. See the front desk when you come in and they will have you complete a waiver, set you up with some trial equipment. IF you are taking Muay Thai or USA Boxing hand wraps are required and a mouth guard is required to train in all our classes. We don't loan that out because it would be gross 🤢. You can purchase them at the front desk or you can bring them if you already have them.
