Whether you're trying to get into peak physical shape or simply want to learn how to better defend yourself, the instructors at 303 Training Center can help. For many students, it all starts with fitness and body transformation classes, which get muscles into MMA fighting shape with the help of nutritional counseling and weekly fitness assessments. Another popular option is a Brazilian jujitsu program that focuses on effective self-defense techniques such as joint locks, choke holds, and foot tickles.
The trainers at Gym-Synergy temper their students' bodies for more than just fitness. They combine more than 40 years of training experience in mixed martial arts and fighting styles such as Kenpo to guide students toward self-preservation. Lessons in the Filipino Kali method, for instance, teach students how to defend themselves with their hands, sticks, swords, and knives while stressing the importance of acquiring intelligence and discipline. Students can also learn techniques for self-defense in tight spaces, while sitting down, and against multiple attackers. Cardio-kickboxing classes, on the other hand, focus on the body's endurance and composition, using the method's kicks and punches more as aerobic exercise than as instruction for what to do to the next donut you see.
UFC Gym’s four fight-centric Denver-area gyms ditch the polished look of wood-floored workout studios for gritty, competitive spaces filled with 150-pound punching bags and intense workouts.

Although instructors and students agree that the gym’s atmosphere may enkindle intimidation in first-time attendees, most experience boosted self-confidence after conquering their first class. Private training sessions further stoke courage with workouts that leave patrons with the exhilaration of having survived 12 rounds in the ring or five minutes in a high-school lunchroom.
