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.
