Though students at Fit or Fight's gym are only required to wear standard workout clothes and a mouthpiece, they might sometimes find themselves sporting MMA gloves, shin guards, and hand-wraps. That's because, in keeping with its name, the studio places almost equal emphasis on exercise as it does self-defense skills. This doesn't mean that students are required to fight—rather, the gym provides much of its training to boost strength and endurance or make users more intimidating if they ever run for public office. The studio offers 12 programs, ranging from general fitness—such as Zumba and cardio kickboxing—to intensive sessions in no-gi jujitsu, boxing, and MMA wrestling for youth or adults. In every program, clients are encouraged to work at their own pace while training as much as possible both on and off the mat.
