Since opening in 2003, Fusion MMA Cincinnati has participated in more than 75 mixed-martial-arts, kickboxing, and grappling events, transforming a number of its students into champions in those fields. But for individuals just looking to get fit and not necessarily to compete or stand up to an arrogant Rock 'Em Sock 'Em robot, the facility offers several classes open to people of all shapes, sizes, and ability levels. As heavy bags sway from the ceiling's exposed metal beams, instructors lead group sessions of Fusion MMA, which incorporates techniques from muay thai, kickboxing, and Brazilian jujitsu into one well-rounded workout. Fusion Fit, meanwhile, features a constantly evolving set of exercises, many of which incorporate functional movements and work with equipment.
At PRO Martial Arts, students of all ages learn the Korean arts of tae kwon do, hapkido, and tang soo do. The instructors guide students from white belt to black belt, helping them with age-appropriate goals such as cultivating scholastic excellence, burning off extra weight, or gaining the leg strength to beat schoolyard rivals at double dutch.
But PRO Martial Arts isn’t only focused on martial arts. It also torches calories in Zumba fitness classes, which use fast-paced dance moves set to Latin beats to tone cores and shed pounds. And cardio kickboxing classes focus on the fitness aspect of martial arts to slim down bodies.
In addition to offering its clientele increased athletic prowess with combat and fitness classes, PRO Martial Arts offers its youngest students invaluable knowledge about issues such as bullies or predators. It has classes that cover topics ranging from how to ask for help from adults and deal with cyberbullying to tips on recognizing strangers and their bad behavior.
The coaching staff at D1?which is co-owned by professional athletes such as NFL player Peyton Manning, MLB player Chipper Jones, and NFL player Philip Rivers?refuses to discriminate between professional athletes and everyday exercisers. They scale the strength-and-cardio workouts of their group boot-camp classes and one-on-one intensive courses to individual abilities, bringing out the best in each student regardless of his or her workout history.
The typical D1 gym houses modern indoor turf fields with adjoining weight rooms, giving instructors the space to invent expansive obstacle courses that may require students to lift tires or tug 747s. In the boot-camp program, coaches meet with students one-on-one to discuss progress and find ways to improve. Each facility also houses a sports-therapy clinic, where expert therapists ease muscle injuries through rehabilitation programs and strength-restoring exercises.
In addition to its extensive list of fitness classes and well-furnished workout studio, Revolution Fitness harbors a community of patrons seeking a healthier lifestyle and the desire to attain that goal with the support and camaraderie of others.

Group fitness rooms host sessions of TRX training or Pilates reformer as guests peddle toward their ideal physique on one of 20 cycles in the spin room. Offering a personalized approach to fitness without the arduous task of teaching a treadmill to speak your name, Revolution’s certified trainers inspire patrons to actualize their goals with one-on-one support and motivation. And to supplement, an onsite nutritionist balances the physical training with professional advice.
