Below you will find excerpts from some of the letters we receive from members and their parents who have something to say about their training here at Pecoraro‘s Academy of Fitness & Kickboxing.

“The decision to join your academy instead of a gym membership was the right one. Adam’s approach in keeping the kickboxing class moving, changing the dynamics, and giving everyone a workout is exactly what I was looking for.  Thanks for putting together this program!”  ~Bob



“I thank the heavens that we found you and my children have chosen you to make a part of their lives.  We come to class because they want to come and they are upset if they have to miss. Adam, The energy and enthusiasm you bring to all your classes is infectious and unique.  But you combine that “fun” side with your awesome physical abilities and your motivational words. As humble as you are, I’m sure you do not realize the power of your words.  You have the ability to draw people in, get them to listen and then try to follow through. ”  ~Laurie
“I have been training here for over sixteen years. I have accomplished more than I ever hoped to both physical and mentally. The Pecoraro’s have developed a training facility that is very forward thinking. At one time, martial arts training was very specific and non-diverse, I trained at several of those schools prior to coming to here. The Pecoraros combine training in several styles of martial arts to develop individuals that become well-rounded. I recommend them to absolutely anyone and I thank them for all they have helped me accomplish.” ~Dave
“I feel so much better for the experience Solid-Core Fitness  has given me.  I’ve lost almost 25 pounds in less than 90 days and more than 3 points reduced on my BMI! I love the 30-minute workouts that change every day as well as the great group motivation and the personal touch and attention of the coach, John Pecoraro.”   ~Crystal



“I have struggled most of my life to achieve a consistent level of physical fitness. I personally found the process of physical fitness to be boring and uninspiring. After a year at Pecoraro’s I could finally say that I have found my niche! I’m fully engaged and I’ve lost 15 lbs! So what’s different about fitness here? For me, I found that physical fitness was no longer my goal…it had become a byproduct of a quality martial art education. So, if you have the desire, I promise you that the staff will help you to achieve your personal goals.  I know because it’s worked for me!”  ~ Carl
“Many thanks to Adam, Carol and John. The last ten years have been great and I am very proud of my boys achievements. We all appreciate all that the three of you do for your students. We are lucky to have you and your academy in the community.   We are proud to be a part of Pecoraro’s Fitness and Kickboxing.” ~ Debbie




“Pecoraro’s Kickboxing Program has provided a positive outlet to help me establish a better balance in my life and to make some great and lasting relationships. I’ve been training consistently for the past 4 years and I’ve never stuck with anything for this long! I enjoy going to each of my classes because I am able to be with friends, exercise and learn kickboxing, which I love. I’m encouraged by my instructors and by other students to do my personal best. Practicing at Pecoraro’s is a key part of my life. I get to overcome challenges and practice a healthy lifestyle.” ~Becca

“I was blessed with the opportunity to have trained with the Pecoraro Family for over 10 years. If you are looking for something to help you or your children gain self-confidence, physical fitness, self-defense and self-discipline, I would highly recommend you give this Academy a try. To this day, I still use many of the character skills learned in my personal and business life. I truly believe you will not find a place that offers a better family environment and has a greater desire to help everyone become the best that they can be.”   ~ Brian                                                                                                                                                                                               
 “I would like to make a personal recommendation for Pecoraro’s  Fitness and Kickboxing.  Both of my kids went through training when they were younger (much younger, they’re now 27 and 34!). This was the best decision I could have made for them. Not only did they learn self defense, but they also learned valuable lessons in respect, discipline, responsibility and other life lessons in a friendly, safe atmosphere with caring instructors. Both of my “kids” and I have the greatest respect for John, Carol and Adam – for the hard work and dedication they put into their craft!” ~Judy

“Pecoraro’s Solid-Core Fitness class has helped me kick start my training. I’m training for my first triathlon in quite a few years and the Solid-Core class is great because it hits all the major muscle groups. The other major benefit to me is that enough classes are offered that I can always find one to fit my schedule. I really appreciate that John is always offering advice about how to modify the exercises so they will fit my needs. It’s amazing to me that the same class can fit college students as well as folks in their 70s. Thanks!”   ~Brian P. 


“Thank you for the welcoming & supportive environment that exists at every class.  I have to admit that this is the longest that I’ve ever stuck to a program and it’s because being a part of the Academy has become a very important part of my life. It’s not just about the classes. It’s about the people. It’s also something special that my daughter and I will be able to say we had together which isn’t typical between moms & teenage daughters nowadays. When I “walk through the doors, I know I’m walking into a place where support and positive attitudes prevail.”  ~Nenita
“I became frustrated with martial arts because of instructor favoritism and pressure to go to tournaments. My friend recommend Pecoraro’s Academy and, after my first class, I  felt like my instructors really cared about me. My dad was so surprised that everyone received personal attention during each class because it was not what we were used to. I was able to not only continue my training but I eventually earned my 1st Degree Black Belt at Pecoraro’s. Four years ago, my family and I moved to Idaho. You know I’ve checked out a couple schools here but Pecoraro’s is still one of a kind.” ~DJ
I chose Pecoraro’s, having heard good things about them from others. My daughter tried a complimentary class and was hooked! Her instructors gently took her hand and taught her not only martial arts, but respect, courtesy, and discipline. Within a few months she was doing better in school and at home. Her confidence improved, and it was so nice to see her smile in class.” ~Karen


“I have been working out doing Personal Training at Pecoraro’s and have never felt better. In the time I have been there I have slimmed down and lost almost 3 1/2 inches off my belly, and I feel great! I have more energy and more confidence. Plus I get to learn kickboxing. Just a simple 30 minute workout 3 days a week is all it took.” ~ Zack
