Kru Ritch is an exceptional coach and a fantastic human being. At first, I was intimidated by the level of skill he carried. However, the first time he trained and coached me, it was nothing like I ever expected. The way he spoke was very calm, and he made sure you understood exactly what he was talking about.

At my very first grappling tournament, I didn't actually have a coach. However, Kru Ritch saw me, and because he knew me, he came over and helped me out. He lay down on the ground to speak to me at my level and spoke so calmly, in a way that it cut through all the excitement and loud noises. He did something no coach had ever done before, and it took me all the way to the finals. I've never had a coach quite like that. A few hours later, I competed in the MMA/Sport Jiu-Jitsu tournament, and was defeated by one of his students, to no surprise at all.

I just could not speak any higher about a coach like him.

Im new to MMA and Muay Thai so I took a shot in the dark by signing up at an MMA gym. At first, I was very intimidated due to my lack of experience but I’m starting to become more comfortable with the classes. All the instructors put forth great effort toward beginners to ensure proper technique and form. I’m very happy with my choice in gyms. Elevation has a great atmosphere, the classes are great, the staff and instructors are very friendly, experienced and knowledgeable, and most of all, I get a great workout. I highly recommend this gym to anyone new to MMA.

I started doing the Women’s Kickboxing classes at Elevation a few months ago after moving to Canada from Australia, seeing a deal for trial classes and realising it was opening just down the road. I’ve never done any kind of martial arts, and was so anxious at first I almost turned around before setting foot in the place for my first class but I am so glad I didn’t. The women’s classes are amazing! Always different, always a great focus on technique and always a super tough workout! And everyone is so encouraging and welcoming - the team really just want to see everyone be their best. My four year old is also now doing the kids class and absolutely loves it, his two year old brother is just sad he can’t join in too. Huge thanks to Ritch and the team for creating such an awesome environment to learn and train! Just wish I knew more people in this country to recommend Elevation to!!

I took my younger boy to Elevations for the first trial and I have no doubt to sign up for him right away. Ritch is very patient to the kids and he knows what the kids needs. My elder boy kept say “NO, I don’t wanna go” at first but after the first trial, he was non stop smiles and laugh all the way in the 45 mins class. Of cos he was IN at the end �. As a parents, I really like how clean it is in this centre and all the staffs are so friendly and they can answer me all the questions I need to know.

Elevation is a martial arts school like no other. The skills you and your children will gain are second to none. The owner and head instructor Ritch Kruz is a champion fighter who's experience is global. His approach to teaching is fueled by passion and commitment. The experience the children get, is truly special. As parents, we are so incredibly blessed to have instructors like Ritch, Matt, Kyle and Morgan (to name a few). They are deeply committed and clearly passionate about what they do and how they do it. The stories you hear about children walking into the school with low self-esteem and turning into super confident kids, is absolutely true! I know this because we had one of those kids of our own. So while they are teaching Muay Thai to the students, they are giving them so much more. This is absolutely a family school, that just so happens to house the best fighters and best teachers you'll find.

Great facility and an excellent instructor. I did my first boot camp class this morning and it was probably the best thing I decided to do in a long time. Can’t wait for my next class. I even signed my 3 year old daughter up for martial arts classes and she’ll be starting today.

Are you dealing with

Any of these troubles?

The workouts you’re doing now aren’t getting you the results you want.

You need motivation to keep you going.

You have an injury that makes working out a challenge.

What does your body need to be fit and healthy?

For most of us, that’s a tough question to answer.

We try different workouts and equipment, but we might still struggle. We wonder if what we’re doing is having the effect we want it to have. We might not want to believe it, but sometimes we might be doing more harm than good when we hit the gym.

Personal trainers have the know-how and expertise to guide anybody toward their fitness goals. Instead of trying a one-size-fits-all approach, it’s time to work with someone who understands fitness. Someone who can help your body reach its full potential.

Results and growth with every class!

Working with a personal trainer is like getting a tutor for your body. These highly trained professionals understand human anatomy and fitness, and they can work with you to test your body’s limits and help you lose weight, build muscle, and achieve your fitness goals.

Personal Trainers Design Workouts That Work for Their Clients

Sometimes, it’s hard to know which workout will be the most effective for your body and fitness goals. What works for someone else may not work for you.

A skilled personal trainer will do a complete assessment of your present fitness and your goals, and design workouts to help you lose weight, build muscle, and push your endurance.

As you progress, your trainer will adjust your workouts accordingly, so you never stop learning – and so your body doesn’t get complacent and stop responding.

A Personal Trainer Won’t Let You Give Up on Yourself

The hardest thing about working out on your own is find the motivation to keep going when you’re not in the mood to work out – or when you’re tired and want to quit.

Our personal trainers provide all the motivation you’ll need to stay on track and get your body in shape. They understand how to encourage clients without overwhelming them.

Let’s face it: it helps to know that you have someone in your corner when you’re trying to get in shape. In the gym, your personal trainer is the one who believes in you – and pushes you when you need it.

Personal Trainers Know How to Work with Injuries

If you’ve injured yourself, a trip to the gym can feel like a walk through a minefield. You want to exercise, but you’re wary of making your injury worse.

Personal trainers work with injuries and physical limitations all the time. They understand human bodies, and they can help you maintain or improve your fitness without reinjuring yourself.

As your injury heals, they can help you adjust your workouts to accommodate new abilities and strengths, ensuring that your recovery is a smooth and healthy one.

Train for Your Next Event Like a Pro Athlete

Professional athletes get personal guidance when they prep for a big event. Whether they’re training for the Olympics or getting ready for the next season, they don’t have to do it alone.

Working with a personal trainer is the best way to get ready for your next event. Training for a marathon or another sporting event requires specialized guidance and workouts.

A personal trainer will help you create (and stick to) a training schedule to ensure you’re ready when the big day arrives.
