TESTIMONIALS

“I started training here to get into better shape and learn Jiu-Jitsu. I went in knowing nothing and completely out of shape doing two classes a week (at first that's all I could handle as I needed a lot of recovery time). As my strength and endurance increased my recovery time decreased so I looked for more to challenge me and started attending their conditioning workouts with my wife. We have a great time and look forward to going to the gym together each week (or as much as life will allow). I've been training for a year now and I'm in the best shape of my life. Impact Zone has a great team atmosphere that helps motivate you and push you toward your goals. Seriously is the best thing I could've done for myself. Don't waste time saying you need to get into shape before you start something like this. The workouts scale to every skill level, and if you come in you'll be motivated to get into shape. No gimmicks, just lots of hard work, with great coaches, and a great team! “


“I have spent the last two summers training exclusively at Impact Zone, and I have had such great results because of the motivating atmosphere created in the gym. Carlos legitimately has the customer's best interest in mind, and there is everything one could ever want to use for fitness inside of Impact Zone. I cannot imagine training anywhere else.”


“I'm 47 years old. I'm a Software Engineer/Project Manager for decent-size company. When I was younger I was a division 1 college wrestler (Indiana Univiersity). It's been a long time, but I was fortunate enough to work with some Olympic medalists and had 2 Olympic coaches during my time at IU. I also competed successfully at the national level in both freestyle and greco roman. I had not been on a mat for about 25 years when I decided that Jiu Jitsu looked like fun. Living in the Lafayette, Indiana area I looked around and went to several places. I liked them all. I actually ended-up at Impact Zone last, but I knew after the first session that I was home. No other place in this area offers the number of talented people this facility does. Impact Zone is in a league of its own. ..They do have all equipment for crossfit and free-weight workouts and offer fitness classes and personal training. However, the specialty here is JiuJitsu/MMA. I really wish I would have found Jiu Jitsu 7 years ago. It is a great combination of flexibilty, aerobic and anaerobic conditioning, power, and knowledge (there is always something new to learn). What makes Impact Zone stand out is the team environment with great people from all walks of life. I have done a lot of different types of workouts. In my opinion, there are none better than those offered at Impact Zone. ..Young or old, beginner or old-timer like me stop in a give it a try.”


“Without a shadow of doubt, the best place to train kickboxing, MMA, or BJJ in the Lafayette area. We compete regularly in the state and are consistently strong competition, even at the beginner level. Plus, a number of people here acquired gold at those levels; this is a place where one can truly succeed and improve as both a martial artist and a person. The camaraderie here is phenomenal. The best part of my day, hands down.”


“This gym is addicting! As someone who is new to the sport, I thought I would try it out to get in shape. I have found that coaching staff is top notch, and all of the advanced guys are great teachers. They have a variety of classes during the week, and the Friday workouts are what you expect from a gym of this caliber: INTENSE.”


“Training at the Impact Zone has taken my jiu jitsu to a new level. I went from just doing well in regional tournaments to winning my first international tournament. It doesn't matter if you just want to learn self defense, get in shape or actually train to compete, THIS is the place to train in the area. Highly recommended!”


“I HIGHLY recommend impact zone bjj to anyone who is interested in learning the sport or for those who are already experienced. The instructor is VERY knowledgable and patient and everyone in the class is friendly, welcoming, and is not there to show up other people. It is a great, clean environment and you can try out the classes for free for awhile to see if you enjoy it. Again, I HIGHLY recommend Impact Zone BJJ.”


“My boys (7 and 11) have been working with Carlos since May. Carlos is an incredible instructor, teaching kids self defense. As a parent of two boys, I respect that Carlos demands respect, effort and good sportsmanship in his gym. I have even learned a few life saving moves just from watching the class. I highly recommend this gym for kids and adults.”


“This is great place to learn Brazilian jiu-jitsu and/or kick-boxing. It has something for everyone, whether you want to compete or just get in shape. Everyone is very cool, very welcoming, and the gym is very clean.”


“It's clean. There's great instruction. The people are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. There really is no better place to train BJJ, or MMA in Lafayette!”


“This place is amazing. Instruction is top-notch. Training partners are friendly and knowledgeable. The owner/lead instructor is a great guy, very down to earth. Great place to train for fun, for sport, for self-defense, or to just get into better shape. I went from weighing a soft 195 pounds the first day I stepped on the mats to competing at a very trim 158 pounds less than 5 months later. Can't say enough good things about this place!!!”


“Great team and instructors. Get in shape and have fun at same time, wish I would of found out about this gym years ago.”


“Impact Zone did just that for me...it's made an impact on my life. For the better. I started off wanting to learn self defense...which I have..but little did I know that this place would help me learn so much more about myself and grow as a person. I'm not only physically stronger...but mentally stronger. And that's thanks to all my coaches and teammates at Impact Zone...who I've grown to call my family. I wouldn't want to go anywhere else!”


“As the head wrestling coach at West Lafayette High School there is no other gym I would rather have my team train in. Great team atmosphere, outstanding training facility with top level coaching. If you are interested in learning great grappling or getting in the best shape of your life, Impact Zone is the place to train! I have been able to lose 30 lbs over the last year training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.”


“I started at Impact Zone just doing the Friday conditioning class. Never did I know I would come to make this place my home away from home. I had been a college swimmer but like many retired athletes, I had become out of shape. These classes rekindled that desire within me to train and become better than what I was. I've tried every type of exercise routine out there (Box Gyms, Personal Training, Fad Diets) but Impact zone has led me to the results I want. Everyone there is willing to help you no matter your skill level . The atmosphere just makes you want to strive to be better. The people you meet here become a second family and you just don't find that anywhere else. If your new to exercise or, like me, wanting to come back, this place is where you need to go.”
