Don’t be shy! If you have any questions, doubts, or hesitations, we’re more than happy to help you with them. Chances it’s not the first time we’ve heard them. Below are some of the most common issues we encounter that our FAQ will explain:

Do I Need To Get In Better Shape Before I Start Training Any Martial Art or Fitness Program?

ABSOLUTELY NOT! The truth is you need to START training with M3 to get in better shape. While being more fit than a young Jack LaLane can’t hurt, most people who come to us are hardly in top physical condition. Our programs are geared toward the individual, YOU, and will get in you better shape regardless of your current fitness level. That means all students train at a pace that’s best for them. When you come in for your FREE FITNESS EVALUATION and FREE GOALS CONSULTATION, we get to know you, your comfort levels, and learning type so we can make sure our instructors can motivate and push you to your absolute best.

 The road won’t be easy, but the process of setting goals with our supportive instructors… and then accomplishing them… will give you a satisfaction that impact your entire life. And you won’t find a more fun way than with what we have to offer at M3 Fight and Fitness in Montrose-La Crescenta, CA. Click here to learn more about how to get started.

Do I Need Past Experience Or Am I Too Old To Get Started?

While we have students of ALL ages, the average age in our adult program hovers around 28 with many students in their 40s and 50s (some of whom are our most dedicated students!). 95% of the people who come to us have never done anything remotely approaching what we have offer before. You’ll be amazed by how much you learn in a short amount of time… and most of all, HOW MUCH BETTER YOU FEEL. Our team of instructors are here to help you each step of the way from “brand-spanking-newbie” to “modern day warrior”. And besides, between the FREE technique videos and private lesson you’ll receive as part of your Free Trial, you’ll have an awesome start. Don’t be afraid to challenge yourself. You only live one life… make sure you get the most from it! Click here to learn more about how to get started.

Is Your Program For Real Or Are You Just Some McDojo Teaching Techniques That Don’t Work?

This is a very serious topic for us. That’s because there really are too many facilities claiming to teach legitimate skills. Mastering Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai Kickboxing, Wrestling, or Mxed Martial Arts takes years. A TaeKwon Do instructor who has taken a couple weeks of grappling classes or a Judoka who has had some boxing lessons are NOT QUALIFIED. What’s more you deserve better! Aside from the fact that all of our instructors have extensive experience and many of whom have been battle-tested at very high levels, they’ve also been trained to teach you and teach you the techniques that really work! It all begins during the FREE PRIVATE LESSON and FREE TECHNIQUE VIDEOS. We’ll teach all the bare-bones basics you need to be ready to begin group classes. It will quickly become apparent during that first month that your learning “legit” skills that will help you defend yourself in a real confrontation, become a champion in competition, or just allow you to have fun training at a very high level of skill. Click here to learn more about how to get started.

I have no desire to compete or be a fighter. Is your gym full of hardcore UFC types?

It’s not a statement that we made up but understand this clearly… Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Kickboxing, and Mixed Martial Arts are for everyone! More than 90% of all the people who train in these truly fantastic styles never compete. And even fewer ever fight MMA. That doesn’t mean they aren’t skilled… it just means different folks have different priorities and interests. Some come to us simply out of boredom with traditional gyms and want something more fun… and they find the most rewarding workout on the planet. Others are looking for self-defense… and what we teach is for real. Some want to be master practitioners but just don’t have time to test themselves… and we certainly have helped many reach the top of their games. Some have no idea what they’re looking for and just come in on a whim… and the find a focus that spreads to other areas of their lives. You don’t need to be big or strong or even in great shape. Just come to M3 Fight and Fitness and we’ll help you with the rest. Click here to learn more about how to get started.

Is Your School Just Another MMA School With A Bunch Of Mean Dudes With Attitude?

Many MMA schools do suffer from this problem. Fortunately we don’t consider ourselves an MMA school, we’re a life-enhancement facility that uses MMA as its medium. When you check us out on your first day, you’ll notice is the exceptionally friendly environment. Everyone is part of the family… that’s the least you should expect from a facility. Yes, we train hard, but at the foundation of it all is a respect for every one who walks through the M3 doors. This is ingrained in each of our programs from kids to advanced adult. Some schools talk about leaving ego at the door, but we actually practice it. Every student, no matter their skill level, presents a chance for even our most expert instructors to learn and an opportunity for each student to improve themselves. The only attitude you’ll get from M3 Fight and Fitness during your FREE TRIAL is a friendly smile and warm hello. Click here to learn more about how to get started.

I Have An Insane Work Schedule. Are There Any Classes To Meet My Needs?

Have you seen our schedule?! We are open 7 days a week and offer 70 classes during that time. No one else around even comes close. If you need to train in the morning, we have classes for you. If you need evening hours—even late night, we’ve got you covered there as well. We even let you into the facility during the few hours of the day there aren’t classes going on and you’re welcome to hit the bags, hit the weights, or hit a training partner! We even have personal trainers that can work with you literally any time of the day.Rest assured that M3 Fight and Fitness offers an elaborate schedule of classes to help you reach your training and fitness needs.  Click here to learn more about how to get started.

I Would Love To Join M3 Fight And Fitness And Train MMA And Kickboxing, But Do I Have To Get Hit?

No worries! We’ll never ask you to do anything you don’t want to do. You can still achieve many of the benefits of these sports without ever hitting anyone. Besides no one is put into hard sparring until they’ve been properly trained and prepared in our MMA Intro Program.

A huge component of these classes is extensive bag/pad work that safely simulates hard contact without the risks. Of course to reach higher levels of skill, sparring will be inevitable at some point. But rest assured that you’ll be eased into the process with a specifically designed curriculum and hand-picked training partners to ensure the safest experience. And if you still don’t want to hit or get hit by a real person. You don’t have to spar. You can also try Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or Submission Grappling, neither of which involve any striking. If the issue is close physical contact, we also offer a ton of MMA Conditioning classes and the Betty Bootcamp program that will allow you to punch and kick the heavy bags to work through technique…and the get the stress out of your days, but that is all that is required of you!
