Nelson Recinos wasn’t born a martial-arts master. In fact, his first experience with fighting was surviving on the streets of a war-plagued El Salvador. Once he escaped his situation, Recinos honed his skills with a six-year tenure in Thailand, where he learned muay thai from local masters. Eventually he came to the states to compete as a professional prizefighter, losing only 1 of 130 bouts.
Now he brings his lifetime of expertise to students at Hybrid Fitness—an 8,000-square-foot facility where he teaches both muay thai and boxing. Sean Tribble, a purple belt in Brazilian jujitsu, assists by teaching his grappling art. Personal trainer Amanda Staudinger rounds out clients' training regimens with a cardio cross-training class designed to get participants in fighting shape, with strong limbs, a powerful core, and hands replaced with bricks.
Hybrid fitness tones both adults and children, and its instructors often take their classes outside. In addition to its intense fighting classes, Hybrid offers fun Zumba classes, which tone bodies to the beats of Latin music.
