As a former Marine Corps and Coast Guard Pilot I can say with 100% conviction that this is hands down the best training I have ever been involved in. The structure, variety of workouts and overall level of physical fitness are second to none! Jason and Tony are two of the best instructors I’ve ever had the privilege of working with. Their knowledge, technique and approachability creates an environment that instills a high level confidence and personal satisfaction. If you’re looking for a rewarding way to attain a quality level of fitness while learning a valuable skill...and have fun while you’re doing it, Crazy Monkey is for you!!
This is my beginning. These are my people. They train with purpose, encourage you to push past the suck, offer accountability and lead by example. The class is diverse in every aspect yet, the playing field is level. Each of us are challenged beyond our limits and discover we are capable of far more than what our mind had us believing. They observe and correct. Even if it takes an analytical brain like mine a little extra time, they welcome the opportunity to break down situations and show WHY we do what we do (bless Tony’s heart for always being called in to be the opponent). It’s clear that together, the coaches are more than trainers; they are a family. Even still, there always seems to be an extra seat at their table for all who want to join. You can bet there will be laughter, bear crawls and monkey jumps but, nonetheless, a good time will be had by all! As cool as they are, there are even cooler people that are in the classes! Each of us are trying to navigate our way through the trenches yet, there are always cheers of encouragement for someone who has a moment of weakness! No one is left behind. No injury completely sidelines anyone. Modifications are made and we press forward as group. This is how life should be!
I had initially signed up with Crazy Monkey Boxing for self-defense training and fitness, but what I gained from my experience was so much more. Not only did I learn some of the physical techniques of martial arts, but I developed both physical and mental strength, and was introduced to a new way of being. The greatest contributing factor to my success with Crazy Monkey Boxing was my coach, Jason. He genuinely cared about my development and growth and he was incredibly patient and encouraging. Jason held a safe place for me to make mistakes and confront personal challenges. His vast knowledge of martial arts, mindfulness, and the human condition helped me to understand how the struggles and challenges that I experienced during our sessions were reflections of the struggles and challenges that I experience in my personal and professional life. He provided insight and guidance as I worked through these challenges on the mat, and in turn I was able to apply that same insight to other arenas in my life. Crazy Monkey Alaska and CM boxing with Jason introduced me to my inner warrior spirit. They have given me the confidence to take on new challenges, and have provided me with tools to overcome my biggest obstacle…myself.
I have trained with Jason for a couple years now, absolutely love it! I also attended Rodneys seminar a few years back when he came to CMA. One of the main things a took from that workshop was that Jason knows this program inside and out. His coaching is top notch and I recommend him and Crazy Monkey Alaska any chance I get.
I have been looking for a place like this for a long time. I am so happy that I found it.
After years of run training, I was looking for a new challenge. Crazy Monkey not only works your body - it works your mind! The trainers are very supportive along with the other members. So happy I joined this crew!
Without going into too many details on why I needed this program, I came to find it at the perfect time. Let me sum up Crazy Monkey Alaska in a few simple words, I have found a place that offers stress relief beyond belief, a place to build my endurance , physical capabilities and self-confidence along with learning self defense in a safe, non-threatening way. Crazy Monkey is family oriented, non judgmental, encouraging and best of all, FUN and rewarding!!
