Vibrant graffiti art scrawls across the walls of Club X Fitness, which enclose upon a bustling space decked out with exercise mats and dangling punching bags. Instructors lead students through a range of martial-arts-based fitness classes, including muay thai, boxing, and kickboxing. They only lead classes that adhere to official Olympic-style techniques, as the gym is a member of both USA Boxing and the International Amateur Boxing Association, This highly skilled team also offers youth boxing classes, where they’ll guide tots and teens through exercises and proper form, teaching them how to cultivate healthy fitness habits and defend themselves against bullies or rouge IRS agents looking to take their lunch money.
Meanwhile, vibrant music reverberates off of the wall-to-wall mirrors of a separate training studio, where licensed instructors lead Zumba and hip-hop-inspired dance classes atop hardwood floors.
After a UFC fighting career that included travels to Japan, Brazil, and Vegas (for a middleweight title bout), David Terrell decided to come home. A graduate of Piner High School, Terrell found and refurbished an old warehouse and created Norcal Fighting Alliance.

Terrell even offers classes for kids, particularly those who have been taking too much lip from their teddy bears. Instructors lead morning and evening sessions in jujitsu, advanced grappling, and boxing, along with noncombat women’s cardio-kickboxing sessions.

Founding their quest for fitness in the martial arts, Team Mix Fit teaches kickboxing and taekwondo, supplementing the combat training with classic conditioning classes. They use circuit training to combine weight lifting and resistance exercise with cardio to encourage muscles to burn large amounts of calories while pushing for greater strength.
