When Darren Levine received his first Krav Maga black belt in 1984, he wasn't the first man to have worn that particular piece of fabric. The belt originally belonged to the man presenting it to him: Imi Lichtenfeld, the creator of Krav Maga. Darren had had the good fortune of learning the self-defense technique from Imi himself, and eventually became one of Imi's most trusted practitioners, developing training programs for more than 5,000 law enforcement and military personnel throughout the U.S.

In 1998, just one year after his beloved mentor passed away, Darren founded Krav Maga Worldwide to meet growing demand from curious civilians. The hand-to-hand technique is focused on reacting to realistic attacks, and teachers use scenarios inspired by everything from military combat, to late-night walks alone, to heated matches of Whac-A-Mole. Darren and his team lead various programs tailored for law enforcement and military members, women, fitness buffs, and even children, and they also offer certification programs for those looking to become instructors.

Some gyms call themselves a family. Grinder Gym finds the term "tribe" more apt. Like tribes, their members span all ages, walks of life, and fitness levels, and they all stick together for one common cause: fitness. At the helm of the tribe is nutritionist and personal trainer, Dave DePew, who's been working toward optimum health since the early age of 8, and has since developed a lifelong philosophy of "diligent daily fitness". Said philosophy—which values continual progression over immediate perfection—includes scientifically proven dietary plans paired with a variety of workout routines designed to suit individual goals, whether that's developing more bulk or finally being able to outrun the neighbor's pet cheetah. To help clients hit these fitness targets, he and his team lead high-intensity classes, such as Total Body Kettlebells and Core & Cardio, that rely on functional movements and resistance training. They also lead classes such as Blood & Guts, during which they challenge participants with obstacle courses and a mix of cardio and strength training. All of these classes and techniques have resulted in some of Dave's students losing anywhere from 16- to 44-pounds and dramatically dropping inches around the waist.
