Next Level Martial Arts and Fitness Reviews


I have always been intimidated by gyms and organized exercise classes, and when I started with Ziad at Next Level, this was no exception… I was scared to death! Master Z is patient, knowledgeable and encouraging every step of the way. I am amazed at how much stronger I have become, and how I can do things I never thought possible. This class is empowering and motivating… Ziad pushes us and we cheer each other on. I highly recommend this class and the 6-week challenge for ALL athletic abilities! I promise you will see results!

This is the place to be!!! I used to absolutely hate working out and lacked motivation. Not anymore! I’m so happy to have found this gym. Master Z pushes me to my limits and he motivates me to become better. I always look forward to our classes and he never disappoints. In the few weeks I have been here I have lost 12 lbs, went down in body fat and up in muscle. I highly recommend this place. You will not be disappointed.

The kids martial arts program it’s amazing! My daughter was a little intimidated at first, but after a few classes she got to love it. I can’t say enough good things about Next Level Martial Arts&Fitness. Master Z and instructor J.C are both very strict, yet very fair. They give equal attention to each student and every class comes with new challenges.

I would highly encourage parents to send their children to Next Level Martial Arts & Fitness.

The instructor is very motivating. He pays attention to your ability and knows when to push you to make you work harder and when you are at your limit. Each class works out all parts of your body and the workouts are all a little different. It’s never boring. This is the first gym that I’ve been to where I miss it when I’m not there!

This is the first time in a very long time I am actually having fun at the gym while working way harder than if I would just do it by myself. Ziad is a great coach, he is always pushing us to go further than our own “perceived” limits and his passion is contagious. I recommend this class to anyone.

Master Ziad is an exceptional Master. My 12 year old son is training with him for 8 years now and he can’t get enough! Master Ziad has the gift of reading each of his students and giving them the guidance, discipline and support they need to succeed. Under Master Ziad’s instruction, I watch my son performing with better attention, determination, patience and confidence while developing more respect and self control! We are most impressed and grateful! Thank you Master Z!!!!!

I just finished a six week challenge. I’ve lost close to 15 pounds and built strength. If you’re looking to lose weight, build confidence, improve balance and strength Ziad is your guy. He’ll push you hard to meet your fitness goal, motivate you and overall make every class fun. I highly recommend next level martial and fitness to everyone no-matter your strength or fitness level. Ziad is the best motivational fitness coach you will find.

Master Ziad is very good instructor , I noticed a huge change in my son’s fitness and health. My son never wants to miss one class. The facility is always clean and I like how Master Ziad knows how to handle all kinds of children. I would recommend Next Level to my friends and family.

I never thought I would say I enjoy going to the gym, but Ziad makes each workout motivating and unique. Class sizes allow for individualized attention so that each person is given direction and encouragement according to their own abilities and personal goals. This keeps everyone challenged to continue to progress and push forward to the Next Level.

If you’re looking for a fitness place that offers motivation, to be challenged, and a great support group then you will not regret signing up for a new you. I first joined with one goal in mind to look great in my wedding dress. I never Imagined fast results 3-weeks into the challenge and, thereafter lose body fat and gained muscle mass at the end of the challenge. I’ve never felt so great and confident about myself after a workout. In the past, I’ve had personal trainers but never I have encountered someone as caring and motivating as instructor Ziad to help you meet your personal fitness goals. From start of class to end of class he makes sure you’re getting best workout. He pushes you to your limit and doesn’t let you give up!

I can only say great things about Next Level MA&FS. Best fitness place I’ve come across and best instructor ever.
