We also offer private lessons as well as personal training. Whether you are a fighter looking to improve your skills or someone just looking to get in shape, Curt and his staff can help you achieve your goals. Men, Women and Children are all welcome. Unlike most gyms, we don’t believe in making our members sign contracts or charging them hidden fees. Your first class is actually even free. Call today to see if our gym is right for you. We are also home to Team Crawford, our fight team: We have produced numerous champions and continue to have great success in competition. Current title holders include John Heath, Isidro Reyes, Lee Sampson, and Mike Lister.
Head Instructor/Owner Curt Crawford opened the gym in 2004 with the help of his good friend Evan Tanner. Evan came up with the name, made signs, and helped Curt set up the equipment. He hired Curt as his boxing coach for his fights with Phil Baroni (twice) and Robbie Lawler. Soon after, he left Team Quest and trained full time with Curt. With Curt in his corner, Evan became a UFC Middleweight Champion in 2005 after defeating David Terrell by TKO (punches).
We miss our friend Evan. But although he’s no longer with us, we take comfort in knowing that his message lives on. Believe in the power of one.
