    I’m getting older and fatter. I’ve gone from a Featherweight in my youth to a Cruiser weight today. I can’t do anything about getting older (nobody can), but I can do something about getting fatter – I did so recently by joining Carlson Gracie Team MMA in Aurora. The Academy offers Jiu Jitsu, Boxing, Muay Thai and Wrestling.

    I chose boxing at Carson Gracie and I’m glad I did. It is a better option than some “Old School” gyms ( that are sometimes looking for fresh meat) and a “boxercise” aerobic class (where you really don’ t learn how to box). Carlson Gracie boxing is just right: Knowledgeable coaches who are boxing title winners, individual instruction, and flexibility to move at your own pace, and very soon, an olympic size permanent boxing ring, not to mention their MMA cage and ample matted space.

    This is a terrible gym for children. They do not tell you about the up front fees to join the gym and after you cancel they continue to charge your account. After you speak to the general manager assuring you they will refund the money they never do and they dodge your phone calls and ignore your e-mails. The instructors do not seem to have a clue how to work with a child for the money you spend they should do more then watch your children roll around on the floor. This place is a waste of time and money. Save yourself the aggrivation find a different gym.
