If you want to get fit or learn how to fight then Primal Gym is the place for you. Primal gym offers instructors experts in their field of sport fighting: traditional boxing/ kickboxing, submission wrestling and mixed martial arts; as well as Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do and Close Quarter Combat which is practical for street self defense.
The facility offers a full-size boxing ring, wrestling mats, heavy bags, TRX bands, medicine balls, kettle bells, battle ropes, plyo boxes, cardio equipment and much more and even TIRES for flipping and sledgehammers for crazy warrior fit training.
On a personal note I was a former student of Krav Maga. For some reason I felt that I was not getting enough. For the time and money that I spent doing it, I felt I was missing one aspect of fighting…The grounding game. Although Krav Maga offered me a great workout there were certain fundamental techniques I had trouble grasping. This was the one reason why I checked out another gym. Within two months working with Jim and his staff I felt confident fighting on my feet and also fighting on the ground. Primal Gym also offers weapons training as a part of their self defense class. The material that is taught at Primal Gym is REAL and will work in real life.
Primal Gym also offers a warrior fit class which is a non-fighting circuit training class. This class is equivalent to any private small group training or cross fit. This class is designed to kick your butt and get you in shape. Great for beginners too!
What I like most about Primal Gym are the people that go there. Everyone is nice and friendly AND THERE ARE NO EGOS. Primal Gym has their fair share of advanced, intermediate and beginner students… It is a place for everyone!
Dollars and cents…. I am paying $100 per month for unlimited classes. Which I feel is a steal. For the money that you are paying and the high quality training that you’re getting I feel that this is the best kept secret in New Jersey
. There are no belt systems which eliminates any testing fees. If you want you can pay for some of the workshops that come to the gym which I highly recommend. There’s also private training if you want but there is no up selling.
In closing I feel at home at Primal Gym and I look forward to every single workout……..this place well worth checking out!- Victor Hom
