“I started doing Krav Maga at the Fighting Fit over two years ago. I am a big guy so I never really felt comfortable, which is why I never went consistently. In my mind I felt that no one wanted to train with the big fat guy. About a year ago, after Krav Maga class one day, I was talking with a few guys and told them how I felt. I told them no one would want to train with me and the reasons. To be honest, they made me feel welcomed and encouraged. Not only that, Barry has been great. I asked him to help me with my weight, because I realized if I don’t lose weight it won’t be good for my overall health.
Since I have been coming regularly I have lost about 20 pounds. I’m sure it could have been more than that by now, but I’m still learning how to eat right. I passed my level 1 test in Krav Maga, and hope to take my level 2 test sometime this year. I have met a bunch of people that have encouraged me not to quit, and are willing to take the time to help me get better at Krav. The thing I like most about The Fighting Fit is that everyone is family. I’ve met some great people here.. people that I now call friends.”
