"How much do your classes cost?"
Fight Prime has membership plans to help make us the most affordable option in the area. It works out best for us to chat over the phone. We will discuss your goals and prices at that time. And, it gives us a chance to learn more about each other. If all sounds good then we will setup your trail class.

Absolutely! Ask one of our staff members about trial classes!

“Will I get hurt?”
Any physical activity can lead to injury – and mixed martial arts are no exception – but because we place such care in keeping you safe…
We hardly EVER see any injuries in our martial arts classes.
We guide you through the perfect way to do each technique. That way you don’t do it in a way that harms your body.
We also show you how to stretch properly – reducing your chances for injury even more.
And you go at your own pace. That way you don’t force your body to do anything it wasn’t capable of.
Our martial arts students who learn quickly are just as valued as the ones who need to slow down, and learn at a different pace.

"Where should I park my car?"
We’ve got parking areas in front of our facility. If it is full then try the Dig N Save which is the next building to the south. There parking lot is open past 5pm during the week nights.
"Why should I join your gym vs. others?"
To create students for life, we’re laser-focused on delivering the highest-quality learning experience. We do this by:
- Having thorough and defined lesson plans and stages of progression in all our classes.
- Having a team of the most knowledgeable instructors in the area
Because of this, our students experience profound life-long changes: fat-loss, increased confidence, athleticism, and discipline. But don’t take our word for it…

“I'm all ready for my first class! What should I bring?”
We have a few recommendations for your first day:
- Bring athletic shorts or pants, and a t-shirt or athletic shirt you’re comfortable moving around in. Shoes will come off before you step on the mat area.
- Arrive about 20 minutes early for class so we can get you checked in and make sure we have the correct waivers signed.
- Take a quick tour around the facility with a Fight Prime Staff member so you know where changing rooms, rest rooms, and storage areas are.
- If there’s time left over, use it to do some stretching on the mat before the instructor starts your class.
