At Ohio Krav Maga & Fitness, a facility staffed by decorated martial artists and coaches, experienced instructors guide students through self-defense classes. Those that lead the studio’s namesake Krav Maga courses show students how to work with their body’s natural instincts to take down a predator or quell the body’s urge to start the wave with every conversational mention of sports.
Further self-defense skills emerge during muay thai combat and weapons disarming seminars. In the gym’s fitness corner, cardio kickboxing slings five rounds of fast-paced punches and kicks, while yoga helps fighters wind down and leaves them more relaxed than a sloth traveling through taffy. The facility also offers CrossFit classes, where students perform a variety of functional movements in short bursts of maximum intensity to burn fat and rapidly build muscle.

Title Boxing Club Powell began as a cocktail of talents: the fighting prowess of former professional boxer Danny Campbell, the acumen of businessman Tom Lyons, and the top-of-the-line gear from Title Boxing, LLC owners David Hanson and Tony Carbajo. Hanson and Carbajo provided the gym’s equipment and outfitted the first location with an onsite pro shop. Campbell put together two signature Power Hour workouts, one based on boxing and the other on kickboxing. Lyons took care of the franchising, and the club has spread all over the nation.
The independently owned and operated Powell location upholds the founding model, boasting 90-pound heavy bags installed into floor-to-ceiling black metal frames. Inside, students can burn calories and learn some self-defense during boxing and kickboxing fitness classes. When the workout's over, they can head to the pro-shop area, where padded cage walls neatly separate the goods from the rest of the gym and provide an excellent place to duke it out over whose T-shirt looks better.
