Fitness instructor Jeff Hughes first cinched up his black belt more than 15 years ago when he became an Austin-area kung fu instructor. Since then, he's incorporated a number of new moves into his fighting repertoire to create CrossPit, a multidisciplinary program that blends CrossFit fitness training with the no-holds-barred approach of mixed martial arts. He bases his program on the idea that the only things a fighter really needs to be successful are a solid stance, swift movement, stamina, and a few key strikes. With this guiding principle, he created a simple but effective fitness regimen that works for anyone from new moms looking to lose weight to experienced fighters hoping for victory at the next after-hours cage match on the Senate floor. He staffs his studio with handpicked instructors who enjoy the same rigorous training he does, and together, they lead classes in MMA, sports performance training, and kickboxing for men and women. Their kickboxing classes in particular garner a lot of popularity, attracting as many as 45 students per session.
The instructors at John's Gym aren't just passionate about the disciplines they teach, they're expert practitioners of them. Carey Huckaby, for instance, the trainer of all boxing hopefuls who walk in, is a multiple Texas Golden Gloves champion, whereas the leader of the kettlebell classes, Henry V. Marshall, is a World Kettlebell Lifting Amateur champion. These titleholders ply their trades in a gym that was originally designed for law enforcement and military personnel, but refrains from intimidation by providing programs for the whole family. Suspension training designed by U.S. Navy Seals complements kick-and-punch heavy Muay Thai kickboxing sessions, while cardio-kickboxing and Fit to the Core classes create more rounded fitness opportunities. To accommodate all these activities, John's Gym stocks a full boxing ring and MMA mat area, Hammer Strength free weights, and Precor cardio machines, as well as more than 30 kickboxing bags, rather than old luggage with "Kick Me" painted on it.
