We started out in the park with a sandwich board and a pair of Thai pads. After the single pair of Thai pads came a hockey bag of equipment, as our class size grew so did our club! Summit Fitness was our first home, we rented a little bit of gym space and began offering Kickboxing, Jiu Jitsu and MMA classes. Shortly after our clients began telling their friends and our athletes started stacking up medals at tournaments and competitions. As time passed we realized we needed our own space to fit our clients and our growing bags of equipment.

Next up we moved to the second floor of the royal on Baker street. There were two former squash courts to host classes and a main level where the weight room was located. This was a hub for many clubs in town, the squash courts made great open training spaces and the weight room was open daily for public use. We offered space rentals, group/private fitness classes, kickboxing and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes for both kids and adults.

After a few years we streamlined our services and focused on what we did the best, martial arts & fitness classes. In 2015 we relocated to our current location on Vernon street where Joey joined Timm as a co-owner of the business. Currently we keep a clean private space that has been customized to compliment our training style.
