About this pro

We offer both group fitness and individual personal training to our clients.  Our group fitness includes martial arts, yoga, Zumba, and P90x/insanity exercise.  Our individual program includes aerobic and anaerobic fitness to lose weight, look great, build muscle, and improve overall health.  We help clients set goals, build plans to achieve those goals, and enjoy great success.

As the owner, I am committed to helping our clients.  Your goals are my goals.  Your opinion counts and when paired with my education and experience, we can accomplish great things.  It is all about teamwork!

Am I qualified and can you trust me to get you on the right path?  You have to make that decision and it all starts with a phone call.  Interview me ... As if you are hiring me for a job (because you are 😁).  If you like what you hear then we meet.  If you like what you see then we discuss your background and goals.  It is a professional process but never a painful one.

Lastly, you can get a feel for who I am by visiting my website and social media pages.  My life is an open book.  I am ready when you are.

  • Daniel Garris

    I have known Curtiss for 33 years as my classmate, my instructor, my colleague, and as a good friend. He is one of the most technically proficient instructors I have ever watched. His ability to absorb knowledge and draw from each style to enhance any given technique is amazing. I would love for him to be closer so my children could learn from him too.

  • Marsha Mayfield

    The personal self defense class that I attended was great. We all learned so much and the instructor was fun and very informative.

  • Bill

    Instructors actually enjoy what they're doing. They care about the kids. It's not just some meathead gym.

  • Don Eaddy

    Curtis is a talented martial artist with strong morals. He is an excellent teacher.

I am a lifelong learner and I love teaching others.


What types of students have you worked with?

I work with kids age 5 and up and adults of all ages.  I have spent decades working with teens and adults in the military and college settings.  I have helped blind, deaf, and partially paralyzed individuals as well as those with learning/attention difficulties.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I love teaching corporate groups basic self defense and use of force.  This is not focused on ring fighting and sports competition.  It is focused on survival and includes the full spectrum of weapons from fists to keys to blades to firearms.  It is a favorite of mine because I absolutely show individuals what their true cpability is and what it isn't.  It often ends with a powerful AH HA moment for most students.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Finding a knowledgable instructor is easy...
Finding a match for you is the trick.
Ask tough questions.
Get to know the instructor.
It is only when you trust and believe in the isntructor that you can maximize learning.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

How much time can I invest (available time on the schedule)?
How much time do I want to invest (motivation/interest)?
How much money can I afford (total amount in the budget)?
How much money am I willing to spend (value vs price)?
How important is this training in the big picture?
Can I commit to a lifestyle change or is this a fad I am toying with?
