Brazilian jiu-jitsu is a martial art based on self-defense that teaches wrestling-like grappling and ground-fighting skills to manipulate opponents into submission. Taught by black-belt native Brazilian fighters, Link's jiu-jitsu classes impart expert submission techniques with an emphasis on traditional Brazilian instruction and student safety when smothering unruly mailboxes in a triangle leg choke. In addition to absorbing rituals in the art of self-defense as jiu-jitsu Jedis, students also boost self-confidence and develop neglected muscles during intense full-body workouts. Link specializes in jiu-jitsu instruction, but classes in mixed martial arts and muay thai fighting provide disciplined cross-training challenges. Classes for beginners, experts, and all levels of students run Monday through Friday with enough flexibility to accommodate busy professionals, school-age children, and undercover heroes traveling on speeding passenger trains.
The minute someone joins Lady Fitness, the staff wants them to know that everyone is in it together—they're here to help each individual member reach her goals. New clients immediately get a comprehensive fitness evaluation, then a trainer leads them on a tour of the gym, recommending the best programs along the way depending on one's needs. That partnership doesn’t end there—once you've signed up for a program, the staff can help you track your progress, and you're allowed to come back to the staff after 16 weeks to reevaluate.
Members have access to Lady Fitness’s cardio center and weight machines, which are designed especially for women’s bodies. Instructors also lead group fitness classes including yoga and sculpting. During Zumba, everyone gets moving to the tune of a Latin-inspired dance-party workout, and kickboxing students can pummel real punching bags instead of backpacks filled with packing peanuts. There are also childcare facilities onsite––including options for free daycare––and all of Lady Fitness’s locations offer fun kids' fitness classes to help young ones learn the importance of staying active early on.

Power Hour group-training classes, which take place daily, are led by an accomplished staff of professional boxers, kickboxers, and mixed martial artists. The freshly opened club, which still sports that new club smell, features a Title boxing ring and a bevy of new Title equipment, including heavy bag stations, speed bags, free weights, and cardiovascular machines.
