Through a personal-training regimen, individuals can consult an experienced trainer during weekly training sessions that provide much quicker feedback than writing to a fitness pen pal.

The expert instructors at Zion Mixed Martial Arts & Fitness believe that students can pursue the principles of fitness and sound personal defense at any age. Under the watchful eye of their gi-clad sensei, kids as young as five learn the underpinnings of Brazilian jiujitsu, building their self-confidence more effectively than replacing their glasses with a visor that reads "you're a champ!" on the inside. Older students often continue their study of jiujitsu, or expand their self-defense arsenals by branching off into kickboxing and mixed martial arts.
