“Well let’s just say that Academix Academy has changed my life… I thoroughly enjoy getting up early and working out and being done by 7am. There are other options in the morning too… but this one works best for my schedule!”

“I came to Academix to further my boxing training for a charity boxing event-Pearl Gloves. Coach Dave was a wealth of knowledge. He helped me to focus on skills that would help me in the ring. He was encouraging, supportive and he has the most amazing sense of humour. The minute I walked into this facility I felt like I was part of their family!! I would highly recommend this gym to anyone looking to have a great workout and seeing a warm family like gym”

~ Jen Stayzer

“We love everything Academix offers our boys (7 and 9yrs old)! We’ve had them enrolled as members for the last 4 years. They attend kickboxing and Jiu Jitsu classes, and we also take advantage of the incredible camps they offer. Our boys have not only grown in character and strength, but they’ve also gained some great friendships along the way. Academix
is a family we are very proud to be part of!”
