Why choose Phoenix Fitness and Martial Arts

The Phoenix symbolically represents rebirth or transformation into something powerful and elegant. In mythology the phoenix consumes itself in fire and is reborn from its own ashes, renewing itself endlessly.

That is exactly what we provide - a place where you will transform into a stronger, healthier version of yourself and feel more fit and confident in your life.

Each time you visit you will experience an immediate renewal as you burn off calories and stress, and each time you leave it will be with a feeling of growth and accomplishment. Over time the full transformation will be life changing.

Whether it's making positive changes in your appearance or simply maintaining a high level of fitness and health to face the everyday challenges of life, we want to help you achieve transformational results.

Renee Chandler - Owner

Renee has over 25 years of experience with fitness and different sports, especially volleyball. Most recently she has focused on CrossFit workouts, Olympic lifts and high intensity interval training workouts. She also decided to give Brazilian Jiu Jitsu a try, even after the age of 40 and with no prior martial arts experience, and became confident and brave enough to enter a competition (and win her final match!).

In addition to always wanting to look and feel her best, she loves having the ability to not only keep up with her kids but also inspire them. Outside of the gym she will often be with her boys running on the soccer field, throwing a football, or even challenging them to cliff diving competitions.
