Class typically begins with a warm-up consisting of footwork drills and animal movements followed by small group instruction on specific mixed martial arts techniques.

The fun and exciting workouts of the TFW system are designed to help you develop the muscular strength and mental fortitude needed to take on those challenges and reach your fitness goals.


Why TFW Rhode Island?

Any gym can have equipment and offer workouts.  What separates the TFW system from other training programs is its culture. Although TFW encompasses signature warmups, speed training, strength training, endurance training, flexibility work and nutrition all based on a comprehensive evaluation process, the most important component of the system is its motivational approach and family environment.  At TFW, we know if you don’t have fun and enjoy the training, you won’t do it.  TFW is not designed as a sport or competition, but focuses on you competing against and bettering your body, mind and spirit.
