With his forays into acting and politics, many people forget that Arnold Schwarzenegger was once a professional body builder and former Mr. Universe. Arnold Kolozsvari didn't forget?it was Schwarzenegger's superhero-like physique that influenced him to join the world of fitness training in the first place. Born in Hungary, Kolozsvari competed in the body-building sphere in Romania, armed with nothing but the diligence, drive, and metallic Skynet endoskeleton he borrowed from his idol Schwarzenegger. Fueled by a desire to train others, he eventually made his way to the United States, where he teamed up with the Revive?s other half, Danny Legault, a 13-year hockey veteran who devoted seven years of service to the United States Marine Corps. The duo joined forces and opened up their own fitness center, where they?ve since trained a client base that includes the Bethune-Cookman University baseball team and numerous Miss Florida and Miss America pageant contestants.
Kolozsvari and Legault happily adapt the functional movements in their boot camps and group cardio classes to suit students of any skill level, age, or physical ability, welcoming anyone ranging from teen athletes to senior citizens. To offer a rounded approach to physical fitness and overall well-being, they can also supplement group workouts with nutritional plans and one-on-one personal-training sessions.

How is your approach different than that of other professionals in your field?
My approach is different than others, because I developed and trained people in functional hand-to-hand tactics for the U.S. Army Rangers and the 82nd Airborne Division. I served 24 years in the military and my tactics and curriculum have been used in real world situations.
We're dedicated to giving students the highest-quality martial arts training in disciplines such as Jeet Kune Do, Kali-Escrima-Silat (Filipino martial arts), Thai Boxing (Muay Thai), Combat Submission Wrestling, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. We feel that change is necessary through constantly searching for ways to improve one?s martial arts abilities.
Do you or your staff have any special certifications or degrees?
I am a Full Certified Instructor under Dan Inosanto (Bruce Lee's Protege), and hold a black belt in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu
