Revolution MMA & Fitness and CrossFit Rev MMA are the vision of its Owner and Chief Instructor, Joel Gerson. Joel’s concept for Rev MMA is based on his 25 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.
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 is known as the largest, most popular, and best designed MMA (mixed martial arts) facility for beginner to advanced levels in the GTA, and is 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! You and your children will reap the benefits while getting into the best shape ever, learning self-defense and focus, becoming more confident and de-stressing, all while having fun and making new friends.
In fact, the facility is the only one in Canada to boast a former UFC Champion (Carlos Newton) and one of Canada’s original MMA pioneers (Joel Gerson) as part of its teaching roster, among many other notable instructors in our beginner MMA (mixed martial arts), Muay Thai Kickboxing, CrossFit, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Krav Maga, Boxing, and Combat Fitness classes in Toronto, Thornhill and 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.
