Today – Ribbon Cutting at M3 Fight Fitness
The Montrose-Verdugo City Chamber of Commerce will be hosting a ribbon cutting today, Nov. 21, for M3 Fight and Fitness located at 2613 Honolulu Ave. in Montrose. The ribbon cutting is open for all to attend and will be at 11:30 p.m. There will be refreshments and snacks.
M3 Fight Fitness is a full service fitness facility for children and adults. They specialize in conditioning training and self-defense. The heavy emphasis on three core principles – movement, momentum and mechanics – inspired the name M3. Classes include kids’ martial arts, teen MMA, women only boot camp muay thai, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, physical conditioning, mixed martial arts and boxing. With over 70 classes offered per week, you are sure to find something for you and your family.
Here is the M3 philosophy: “When we say we’re a life-enhancement facility as much as we are a gym, it isn’t some sort of gimmick. Despite its undeserved violent reputation, mixed martial arts can be a powerful tool in effecting positive change. Students not only lose weight, get in shape, and learn potentially life-saving skills, they also build confidence, develop a strong body and mind, and develop mindset traits that serve them well in all areas of life. Maybe that’s why it’s not just the fastest-growing sport in America (according to Sports Illustrated), workout gurus such as Jillian Michaels from “The Biggest Loser” listed it in Time Magazine as the one workout she’d choose if she could pick only one workout regimen.”
Owner Rich Kamrin has trained in martial arts since the age of 4 and fell in love with Jiu Jitsu in 2010. He is currently a blue belt, an active competitor and coach.
“Jiu Jitsu has had a huge effect on my life. It changed everything for the better and I’ll never be the same. To be able to pass this on to the current and future members of M3 was a dream, and now, a reality,” he said.
