My son (10) trained at Vanguard for about a year and a half. It was an amazing experience for our entire family. I knew this place was different than many other gyms as soon as I saw the "leave the ego at the door" sign. The level of professionalism from all of the coaches was by far the best I have ever seen. Coach Doug and Jenny run a top notch program. Coaches Christian, Blaze, Reed and Luis all provided a level of training and patience with children this father of 4 struggles with every day. If it were not for work moving us, we would be a part of the Vanguard Family for many years to come. If you are even considering another gym for MMA/BJJ/Thai Boxing/Cross Fit and much much more, stop looking. The place you need to be at is Vanguard. Thank you all for opening your doors to us. we look forward to following you guys on the mat and in the cage via FB.–David Brown
I have only been a member for 2 weeks and I love this place. The staff and other members are extremely friendly and do a great job of making new comers feel welcome. Coach Doug is the best and he will do anything to make sure you get what you're looking for.–Joshua Culp
Best MMA gym around. Awsome staff and coaches. I would highly recommend it to anyone whether they are looking to get into shape doing crossfit, or hit the mats.–Danny Clairmont
There is none better in NOVA, from the serious MMA fight training, to the more relaxed "stay-in-shape" fitness activities. Vanguard Gym Rocks!–Jim Miller
