About Us

Our gym was co-founded by former professional UFC fighter Tyson Griffin, who has been featured in video games and DVDs and who has fought numerous world champions. He’s just come out of retirement too, so he’s currently looking to share all his hard won knowledge with his students.

World Class Fighters & Coaches

Students who attend the gym will also have the opportunity to train under world-class fighters including 15-1 professional boxer Aaron “Heavy Metal” Coley, Caio Terra BJJ Black Belt Felipe Abad, former UFC & WSOF contender Tyson Griffin, and 2014 assistant wrestling coach of the year & Albany High School wrestling coach Jason Griffin.

Additionally, PFMMA is home to current Ultimate Reality Combat Championship Flyweight Champion Derrick Easterling, former 559 Flyweight Champion Jaime Mora and a host of other professional and amateur mixed martial artists and BJJ competitors.

We strongly believe in not only our talented coaches, but in the environment we provide that creates skilled and knowledgeable athletes, and future champions.

Here at Performance Fitness MMA we strive to teach martial arts as a form of self defense, to build confidence and reach fitness goals.

Fun Training Environment

All our classes are taught in a fun and friendly manner and we have a great upbeat environment in our classes. That’s pretty easy though, because actually learning martial arts is a ton of fun. Sparring with partners is surprisingly thrilling while also actually being a great laugh too. We offer classes for boxing, kick boxing & Brazilian ju-jitsu, as well as Strength and Conditioning classes, and private sessions and nutrition training!

Strong Sense of Community

We’re already proud to be developing a fantastic community around our facility. We train everyone all under the same roof and that creates a lot of opportunity to chat to people with shared interests and to get advice and support from those who’ve been fighting a little longer. This is a great place to make friends and to learn how to kick-ass.
