Rudy got me ready to fight

I arrived at Apex Predator MMA looking for a challenge. I told Coach Rudy I wanted to compete in a cage fight and within months of training, my first cage fight was announced. Coach Rudy put in great effort and through his teachings I was able to get in shape and come out victorious. Coach Rudy has been very helpful in my development as a fighter and has helped open doors for my promising career.

Best gym I’ve ever been to!

For one, it’s like stepping into a little community. Everyone there knows everyone and the support system is incredible. Two, the coach is awesome. It’s like having a friend and a nutritionist all wrapped in one little package as a coach. He helps keep you on track and keeps you motivated in ways that at least I’ve never gotten from coaches in the past. Three, the classes are SUPER fun! The lessons are incredibly easy to understand thanks to the ways coach explains them all.

Being in Apex Predator quickly became the highlight of my day to the point I wanted to come to every available class when I joined, which was all the way back in November 2022. In my short time being here, I’ve lost 45lbs as of the start of July, going from 330lbs all the way down to 285lbs. Originally I joined because I wanted something to look forward to throughout my day, but after trying out just my first class I was practically sold immediately because of how fun it was. The longer I went on, the more I started to gain goals and found challenges for myself that I would’ve never gained from training on my own at Planet Fitness let alone the other boxing gyms I’ve been to. For the first time, in my experience, it felt like I’m being invested in just as much as I’m investing in something else, and that’s the Apex Predator experience. A place where you could go in and sweat off your worries and be around people that cares just as much as you do, which for me, is my favorite experience.

Worth the time, money and energy I’ve put into it

Training with Rudy over the last few months has enhanced my life for the better!

Originally, I signed my 13 year old son up to box with him. After a while of just watching, I decided to try it out myself. I’m so glad I made that decision.

My new personal fitness routine has helped strengthen me both physically and mentally. It’s nice to have an extremely well-versed coach to lead me in the right direction regarding health and fitness, but also one that has been somewhat of a life coach too.

As a beginner, I like that our workout routines have gradually built up overtime. I was under the impression that I was just going to learn how to box. Instead, I’ve learned multiple self defense styles, have gained more confidence and now have a new sense of self.

This training has been more than worth the time, money and energy I’ve put into it. Thank you!!

Every time I step on the mat I’m learning something new.

Coach runs a great program here! Every time I step on the mat I’m learning something new. there are multiple classes a day, so if you can’t make it to one there is likely another you can make. The gym is also very clean and well kept.

I love it here!

Been coming here since it opened and I love it here! Everyone is super supportive. Whenever I am struggling the coaches are eager to help. They emphasise a positive environment and safely learning proper technique. Before coming here I had some knee issues, the coaches have been careful to keep my injuries in mind and help me to rehab my knees so they are stronger than ever. I have been training with the head coach Rudy for a few years and am pleased to follow him into his own gym.

Happy I signed up and would highly recommend.

I am so happy I found Apex. I was looking to learn self defense with my kids and this is the perfect place, Coach Rudy creates a relaxed, pressure free environment where the kids learn but have lots of fun. When I want to go a little harder, there are some great adult classes where you learn real and practical skills and I feel my confidence in my ability grow with each class. Happy I signed up and would highly recommend.

I’ve appreciated the very practical teaching of coach Rudy!

The name Apex Predator sounds pretty intimidating, but I have found the guys here to be caring, kind, humble, hard working and smart. No one is trying to hurt anyone else, but practicing the moves with restraint. It feels like everyone is on the same team of wanting to create a positive environment from which to learn and grow.  

I’ve appreciated the very practical teaching of coach Rudy! The moves are simple to learn and really work. Its not a place of a bunch of katas and theoretical movements. Every single session involves hands on sparing and implementation. I highly recommend coming here.

I am getting a great workout while gaining practical skills.

I have hit 30 and was told I had to change my lifestyle or I’d have to be on hypertension medication. Rudy and the team has pushed me to continue on my health and wellness journey(I almost quit twice). I have lost 20lbs and have brought down my resting HR by 10points from the 80s to 70s. You get more than what you pay for if you come consistently. For me it is about health and self defense. The class is very controlled and friendly. I have sparred at a decent pace with the adults. I have also survived gauntlet day (the toughest workout day). What I can say is that I feel I am getting a great workout while gaining practical skills. I am not paying to get beat up or ignored in a corner while the more athletic people get all of the attention. There is something there for everyone. From fighters to fat dads (me). For me it is a simple option am I going to pay $20 a month to a gym I won’t go to (throwing away money) or pay a little more and actually see results. Once you lose your health you lose your livelihood.
