Revolution MMA & Fitness is the vision of its Owner and Chief Instructor, Joel Gerson. Joel’s concept for Rev MMA is based on his 30 years in mixed martial arts and fitness conditioning for adults and children. Established in 2006, Revolution was Toronto’s first dedicated MMA and fitness facility. In 2012, after over 20 years of Ranny Tal running his own successful martial arts clubs, elite military training and building champions, he joined our Thornhill location and immediately proved himself to be a major asset, becoming Thornhill’s Head Instructor while leading kids mma, adult boxing, kickboxing and of course, Krav Maga. In 2017 Joel and Ranny partnered up and expanded the facility to our new 12,000 square foot facility in Vaughan.
Since that time we have managed to create a lot of buzz–having been featured in The Globe and Mail (twice), the front page of The Toronto Sun (twice), Toronto Life Magazine (Best of 2009 issue), The National Post (twice), The Toronto Star, The National News (CBC), Global News (three times this year), and The Fight Network (many times), as well as many others leading media outlets. Rev MMA was recently voted the #1 Gym in North York by Post City Magazines, besting both larger chain fitness facilities as well as smaller boutique-style gyms.
Rev MMA facilities are known as the largest, most popular, and best designed MMA (mixed martial arts) facilities for beginner to advanced levels in the GTA, and are widely considered the industry leader for many reasons. With the ever increasing popularity of mixed martial arts in North America, Rev MMA is Toronto and Vaughan's "go-to" facility for people who are sick of the gym and who want to develop their fitness, skills, confidence and passion for the most exciting sport in the world! Open 7 days per week you and your children will join us and our community of hundreds of children currently getting more confident, improving their fitness, learning self-defense and focus, all while having fun and making new friends.
Among many other notable instructors, our classes are overseen by MMA pioneer Joel Gerson in our beginner MMA (mixed martial arts), Muay Thai Kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Krav Maga, Boxing, and Combat Fitness classes in Toronto, and Joel and co-owner/ Head Instructor Ranny Tal at Thornhill/ Vaughan.
The first MMA club to have expanded to a second location, Rev MMA has a proven, unrivalled track record. Specializing in the exciting area of MMA and fitness for beginners for both adults and children of all ages, we offer the total package in a fun, clean and friendly atmosphere.
