Why more women weren't at this class I'll never know, but I definitely benefited from it. I got one on one time with Steve, who is clearly very knowledgeable and experienced in his craft, and more importantly, I learned skills which will not only be practical in the real world, but will definitely make a difference in a variety of scenarios.
A workout class with a purpose beyond vanity or health goals, this is a class that will empower you to take ownership of your safety and well being. Personally, I felt motivated to learn more about the techniques and will continue to develop them there. I'm new to Austin and this was my first class at Austin F.I.T, so needless to say, it left a great impression on me.
I firmly believe every woman should take a self-defense class at the very least once in their life. Information that could protect you from harm? Yes please!
Empower yourself and get over there before the word gets out :)

This class was not a self-defense class as the day had changed; we were told it was the yoga class in which my daughter and I showed up for, unfortunately, we were the only attendees. The instructor was an excellent teacher and we enjoyed the basics of yoga. The location is a bit out of our way, but it was a great teaching class.

Thank you for the AWESOME! Review Grace.
It was a pleasure to have in for the class, and to have you stick around for the second class was great!

I really enjoyed my training session with Steve at this gym. It's tucked away and hard to spot from Congress so when GPS says you've arrived - BELIEVE HER! Turn right and the gym in the first space in the strip. Very clean and comfortable. I felt like I learned proper technique with foot placement and hand block positions. Steve let us get into some advanced moved with a couple of jab/block/kick combos and then he showed us how to take the entire sequence even further and ended in a throw. The whole technique built on the exercise we just learned so I felt like I have conquered a good defense move by the end of the session. Steve wrapped my hands up and I felt very secure and safe - I went by myself which can be a little daunting at times. Great class. Thank you!

This class is not for wimps ;-) The instructor was super informative and attentive and I really enjoyed the work out. I'll definitely be back, but might wait a few days as I have a few bruises from the defense exercises.

Oh my gosh, this class is exactly what we have been looking for.  Forget palates, dancercise, and cross fit --- this martial arts instructor is serious!  Abs, arms, squats, glutes, everything in a workout while you train to fight off an attacker. The instructor is a world champion heavy weight MMA fighter. Can’t wait till our next class!! MOST EXCELLENT!!!

This class is awesome. Steve is laid back but in a good way -- he's not one to call you out if your form isn't perfect and beginners are made to feel welcome right away. One of my biggest pet peeves is joining a class and being forced to do "entry-level" work (aka, a crap workout). Steve manages to strike the right balance of not making you feel intimidated but pushing you so that you leave feeling good about the work you put in.

Obsessed with this studio! I'm training for an upcoming pageant this March, and Steve is THE instructor to learn from. He is kind but motivating, and more importantly he stresses that newcomers are always welcome! That attitude rubs off on other attendees as well, which I was incredibly thankful for. This class is fun but challenging, but THAT is what makes it worthwhile. I'm coming back every week for this class and I know I can expect great results and an inevitable smile from all the encouragement. Sign up now!

Thank you Farish!
You are exactly what Austin fit center is about. Making goals and reaching them.
See you in class

Attended the FIT Kick class a few times, and it was really great.  Everyone in the classes was always encouraging and helpful - really made it easy to get into the session.  Steve was super helpful and very knowledgeable about kickboxing - explained the moves thoroughly and helped identify where I was going wrong/how to fix it.  Also, there was no pressure to keep up - if I needed a break, I took a break.  Learned a lot and didn't feel overwhelmed.

Very happy I went, look forward to making to more classes.

Attended my first ever kick boxing class, wow, what an experience!

It wasn't just because I'm 64 and most the class was a few, uh, well, ok, three to four generations younger, but because of a number of surprising and welcome things.

One, no matter the age or experience level of the other class folk, and there was a bunch, I was quickly and cheerfully accepted into the mix.

Two, the instructor-owner, clearly very skilled and very powerful, accepted me at where I was, step one, punch one. Sometimes I had to slow-practice a move before getting the rhythm of the punches (and later, punch-kicks).

Three, I was encouraged, but allowed to catch my breath as needed, and given multiple pointers to help my efforts: relax my shoulders, releasing stress and preserving energy; reminders to not only breathe, but breathe softly easily and effectively; to join my movements (once practiced) into more fluid motions.

In fact, other than deflecting and inflicting punches and kicks (smiles), it was very much a powerful dance-like routine requiring constant partner awareness.

The small gym-ring like space has an authentic atmosphere, is clean, well lit, and filled with all sorts of props, bags, bins, and of course - high quality professional gloves.

It was an exhausting pleasure, and am glad to find a new fitness-toy I can return to.

See you soon
