The kickboxing classes at Explosive Sports MMA & Fitness are deceptively named—they cover much more than kickboxing. Beyond training on speed bags and heavy bags, students work with weight poles, dumbbells, and medicine balls in exercises that range from plyometrics and strength training to MMA moves. For more combative workouts, full-contact MMA classes blend muay thai, jujitsu, and kenpo with kickboxing and boxing, creating a self-defense system that’s more comprehensive than giving threatening people big hugs. Age-appropriate classes for kids round out the fitness studio’s class schedule.
Unit 2 Fitness is a locally owned fitness martial arts gym located in midtown Atlanta, GA. Unit 2 was founded by a small group of martial artists and professional fighters.

Corey Cutter has always loved working out, be it making fitness videos with her childhood friends or sweating it out in aerobics class as an adult. But it was her mother’s three-decade career as a fitness professional that inspired her to open her current fitness studio, Cre8fit, after 15 years of practicing law.
From this boutique studio, tucked within Riverview Village Shopping Center, Corey shares her passion for healthy living by offering clients the latest in group fitness classes. During Real Ryder sessions, students cycle on technologically advanced machines that mimic real outdoor bikes. CrossCore 180 classes use pulleys and the student's own body weight to strengthen and tone muscles. Corey also works alongside six other instructors, each providing ample attention by making modifications for beginners.
Trainer Mario Miller sees health as an all-encompassing part of life. As owner of One Three Fitness Training, he largely emphasizes physical exercise as the main avenue to wellness, leading personal-training sessions, boot camps, and other small-group fitness sessions.
