    Amazing gym, they are like my family! I have been at Absolute for years because of the top tier coaching, individual attention, and lifelong friendships.

    I recommend Absolute to anyone looking to try out or further their skill in jiu-jitsu, kickboxing, strength training, or wrestling.

    I just started around the middle of July. And it id one of the best things I have done in a long time

  • Daniel says:

    I have been to a few different MMA gyms around, but none have made me feel more at home than Absolute MMA. The coaching staff are top notch and the focus and dedication that the team has is incredible.

    It doesn’t matter if you are a expert martial artist or a beginner, you will learn new things and have fun doing it. And if you are a beginner, no problem! The professionals there are always willing to help you out and help you to improve your skills.

    The most important characteristic of Absolute MMA in my opinion is the respect that everyone shows you. No one person is considered better than another. Everyone is friendly and welcoming, which is much more than I can say about the other gyms that I have visited. Simply put, it is absolutely the best.

    Awesome teammates and coaches with excellent culture of comradery. Absolute’s members range from brand new novice individuals to UFC fighters. Staff has decades of experience and participants at this gym work hard, treat each other well and all constructively further each others skill level in Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai, Boxing, MMA, Strength training and more. Brand new into the sport or a veteran, Absolute may be the place for you.

    My husband and I started taking our boys to Absolute, while they had been training the wonderful staff encourage my husband and I to join, not to become UFC fighters but to get healthy and in shape. This has been the best decision I have made! In the last 3 months I have lost 25lb., gained incredible strength, and gained some much needed confidence! I am doing things I would of never imagined doing before working out at Absolute.

    All of the trainers are amazing to work with, they keep you motivated and encourage you to push yourself. Favorite saying ” you get out what you put in”.
    The members of the gym are outgoing and friendly. Truly a great group of people!

    Being a member at Absolute has changed my life.
    After years of many crash diets, and failed workout plans, I was finally able to find something that works.
    I was a painful, depressing 240lbs. and had 28% body fat, Before my first 2 year contract was up, I was walking around at 180 pounds, with 10% body fat. A 60 pound 18% difference.

    I say after my first 2 year contract, because it has been over 4 years since I started, and I plan on staying at Absolute MMA for as long as there doors are open. New people start every day, it is an amazingly friendly environment, with zero ego, and intimidation. I recommend them to everyone I know.

    Absolute MMA is one of the best gyms I have ever been to. The people that train there are all very friendly and treat everyone with respect. The trainers/coaches are very knowledgeable and are able to improve your fight game whether you are a beginner to advance. I love training and fighting out of Absolute MMA!!

  • Denver says:

    Absolute MMA is my favourite place in Salt Lake City. Period. Between the outstanding and exceptionally knowledgable coaching staff, the clean and well equipped facility, and the amazingly friendly and team oriented environment, there is no better place to learn any of the disciplines that encompass mixed martial arts. No matter what level you are, from brand new to seasoned veteran, Absolute MMA is the place to be!

  • Erik says:

    This place is amazing! I was hooked right after my first lesson. Awesome people, coaches and atmosphere!!! I wouldn’t want to train anywhere else.

  • Bret says:

    I have been training at Absolute MMA for 6 years now. You will not find better instruction which translates directly to competition (shows in 4-time Best Jiu Jitsu team in Utah awards 4 years in a row) and Self Defense. Their Mixed Martial Arts program is second to none (just ask Josh Burkman and Court McGee) and produces, consistently, the best Fighters in Utah. Don’t take my word for it though, come check it out. I’ll see you there :)
