We had a Tournament today and I'm not giving the gym a bad review but I'm giving the Set up, Organization, Referee and some Coaches unacceptable. Tournament was SUPPOSE to start at 10:00am but didn't till 11:30. Than Referee had went over Rules and he didn't follow through with them throughout the fight. Each fight he calked and different things that he said was ok to do and not calling on things that he said wasn't suppose to be done. VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THE WHOLE SET UP OF THE TOURNAMENT !!!

I was way standoffish at first to try mma but the guy teaching the class there was so laid back and chill about it I decided to try it! It was fun even for a girl and probably the best overall workout I ever had in an hour!:)these guys have the best physiques and conditioning I've ever seen on any athletes and its amazing how humble they are. The teachers name was Bobby Wear ill be back to see him.

This place has horrible customer service. I wanted to find out about the prices and classes offered. They made me feel stupid for asking. They first quoted me $120 per month/ per class then 3 other prices. I wanted to know what per month/ per class meant and he caught a attitude with me. I don't know if they only want a certain demograhic to join but the 2 men that were at the front desk lost a client

Cons: The front desk guys are really rude.

Ultimate gym offers no-nonsense, real martial arts instruction with no BS. The owner, Doug, is a straight up guy and I like how he runs the gym. He doesn't play games with convoluted contracts and 'initiation fees' and the BS that other martial arts schools do.
Ultimate Gym is geared towards real fighters. There are a number of professionals that train there. What I like about it is the informal atmosphere but serious training. I usually do the MMA class. I show up, do a hard workout, and stick around for sparring after the class, which is either kickboxing with protective gear or ground grappling.
The gym is located in a brick warehouse building with tons of equipment. If you want to see how real fighters train and get in exceptional shape, come down and try it out.
What I dislike about most martial arts schools are the games they play with pricing and long-term contracts, and also forcing you to go through a curriculumn that you aren't interested in, with silly belts and postures, uniforms, useless warm up drills, etc. With Ultimate Gym, I show up and have my choice of a number of different classes to attend. No one forces me to buy some halloween costume to work out in--I can wear what I like. The workouts are tough but you're working out with an elite group, and some of these guys fight professionally. No one looks at what color belt you have--people respect you based on your ability. Ultimate Gym isn't for everyone. It's cold in the winter and hot in the summer. The workouts are tough. Most people who do martial arts seem to want to just go through the motions in nice surroundings, and if so, there are plenty of places to choose from. But if you want real training in a real gym, Ultimate Gym is one of the few places available in Charlotte. I've also been very pleased with the quality of the instruction.
One of the reviewers mentioned that the gym is very male-oriented. That's true, and there are few women who train there. I consider that a sign of a true combat-oriented facility. If you go to a professional boxing gym, you won't find many women either. The softer the instruction, the more ladies you'll find. Check out a Tae Kwon Do class or yoga class. Sorry ladies, hope that doesn't sound sexist, but generally you don't find many women doing a class that's oriented around real combat.

Pros: No contracts, initiation fees, mandatory uniforms, or BS

Cons: Hardcore gym in warehouse, cold in winter, hot in summer

After visiting for the first time from a friends recommendation, I was surprised that a place like this existed in Charlotte. I felt like I was in a Rocky movie. Kind of a rough neighborhood, but I think that was probably on purpose b/c it really fits the grittyness of the gym. Fight nights are pretty cool too.

Pros: Best Instruction on the East Coast

Cons: Tough to Find

My ex takes boxing lessons at Ultimate Gym (he likes the Thai). I went and watched a couple of lessons and the instructor really took his time with my ex. The gym is very male oriented - I was the only female in the place each time.
