Why Choose Rocky Mountain Self Defense and Fitness Over A Traditional Globo Gym, Traditional Martial Arts, or A Different CrossFit affiliate?
About Rocky Mountain Self Defense and Fitness
Rocky Mountain Self Defense & Fitness strives to be a family friendly training facility.
We have highly skilled and competent coaches who care about their students. We don’t care about being the biggest gym in town or about putting trophies on the wall. We care about the personal success of each member in our entire gym.
Our Fitness Services in Castle Rock, CO
We started out as a Krav Maga gym in 2006 with the focus on giving the community a practical place to train in self defense. We are not another Martial Arts school or Sport/ MMA gym. We are about real life training. There are no rules when someone attacks you or your family, Krav Maga is the answer to no rules ﬁghting.
In 2008 we added Crossﬁt to the line up. We saw Crossﬁt as a very complimentary strength & conditioning program to Krav Maga. Crossﬁt and Krav Maga share many similar philosophies: practical, anyone can do it (scaleable for all abilities, easy to get started, functional, no nonsense approach), always pushing your limits. We knew it would beneﬁt our existing members as well as bring it new members interested in functional ﬁtness program.
The entire coaching staff at Rocky Mountain Self Defense & Fitness are focused on practical training. We do not believe that there are any quick ﬁxes to get in shape. Nor do believe any of the programs we offer are “fad” workouts. We are about training for LIFE!
We are Not a Globo Gym offering Crossﬁt. No Mirrors nothing fancy just real Training with real results.
We are not a MMA or Martial Arts school offering self defense on the side. Sport and training for belts is not what we are about.

Apprentice Coaching Program
We are a Self Defense & Fitness training center. This extends to our members who want to take their learning to the next level. We are always looking to train and mentor the next generation of Krav Maga/CrossFit professionals who want to share and grow their passion with others.
What this means to you is all of our staff go through not just a weekend course. All of our coaches go through a 2-3 year apprentice program.
We want to ensure that your coaches are experts when it comes to Krav Maga self defense or CrossFit ﬁtness, strength and conditioning. We do not let a child teach classes as part of a martial arts “black belt requirement” your child is too valuable for that. Nor do we let the weekend certiﬁed Crossﬁt coach head up a class. There is so much more to being a coach at Rocky Mountain Self Defense & Fitness.
