“I was looking for an alternative to the usual weightlifting/cardio routine when I joined Maxercise to practice Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and was immediately hooked. I have been training for approximately 2.5 years and it was the best move I could have made for myself. For me it is a great workout. It is both physically and mentally challenging. It never gets old and stale because you are always learning something new. The instructors are first rate and are extremely knowledgeable. They are very generous with their time and always willing to assist when you ask. Aside from the awesome workout, the people at Maxercise are the best. There is such a positive atmosphere and the camaraderie between teammates is second to none, which makes it a great place to train. At 37 years old, I am in good shape, found a sport that i love and made some great friends thanks to Maxercise.”

“Maxercise is fantastic! I became addicted to jiu jitsu watching MMA.  I began looking for a place to train and checked out most of the gyms in the city.  While good, I never felt quite comfortable there.  What a change at Maxercise!  From my first class I felt welcomed as part of the team.  I sparred in that first class and was hooked!  The gym is great, the instructors are phenomenal, and my teammates are awesome as well.  I have found that the instructors are incredibly generous with their time and attention, even with the lower ranked students.  Everyone at Maxercise, from the instructors to fellow teammates, is focused on making each other better.  I couldn't ask for a better place and team with whom to train!”

“P.S. The gym is also conveniently located near the subway, so if you work in Center City and have a busy schedule, it's quite convenient to attend.”

Training at Maxercise is the best decision I've made in a long time. The instructors, staff, and members go above and beyond to create a warm atmosphere where everyone feels welcomed immediately. It's like training with family. The training itself is incredible. The instructors, John, Maggie, and Mike are all very technical, yet they're gifted teachers who are able to communicate difficult concepts to a complete beginner. Starting in January, I began to dedicate myself to really working and attending class regularly. Since then, I've lost 15 pounds and my comfort and skill on the mat has increased dramatically. That increase is the combination of hard work and great instruction. I highly recommend that anyone interested in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, self defense, or just getting into great shape should stop in at Maxercise and give it a try. You won't regret it!
