For us coaches it's all about our students. We love to see our students progress. When something they have been struggling with finally clicks. Hearing stories from students about how they used something we taught to defend themselves, how they have lost weight, how they achieved goals or how training has impacted their lives in a meaningful way. Each of us coaches at Faction have a love and passion for what we do. We live and breath it. What we love most though is relaying that passion to our students to impact their lives with skills, confidence, fitness and a passion for what we do too.
