    Joined this school and gave them my banking info (NO CONTRACT). A month later, I withdrew from the club. They continued to charge my account for many months after. Contacted and tried to speak with office staff to resolve the situation, but was informed that I would be called back soon. Tried again and was bluntly told “don’t call here anymore”.

    Stay away.

    I’m not sure what Tommy is talking about. This is a great gym. I was a member for many months. My billing info was never misused. The last month I was a member was actually refunded to me as I was moving away. You just have to work with the owner if you are leaving to make sure he gets your account canceled with the billing company he uses.

    This is a great school. I have been treated very fairly,I wasn’t going to have the money to start training for almost a month but Santino said it would be fine I could start and just pay him later. The classes are well organized and all coaches are very encouraging. I have been training MMA for almost 5 years and this school is by far the best I’ve attended. The instructor is very willing to work with the students and has never missused any billing information of mine.
