WELCOME TO THE FAMILY
This family run gym is a special fixture in Fairfield. Our members, past and present, can share how wonderful the gym is for both kids and adults. Many say our gym is a home away from home. We take pride in our town, our teaching, and most importantly the friendships we build with our members.
What We Offer
Elizabeth Cook Absolutely love Coach Joe and the entire team. My daughter started to go to the club at age 3-4 years old to BJJ and she just absolutely loves it! My daughter was super shy and Coach Joe created a wonderful atmosphere and now my daughter is outgoing and has a lot of confidence. I love the life lessons Coach Joe teaches the kids. We really feel at home here and everyone is supportive. Thank You Coach Joe and Sarah for making us feel so welcomed!
Noel Quinn If you're looking for a warm, welcoming, family-owned gym, you'll get it all with Fit Club. All of the coaches and athletes in their BJJ classes want you to succeed (and have fun). It doesn't matter if you're a seasoned athlete or someone who is just starting to exercise in a structured way for the first time, you will find what you're looking for here. The whole family does BJJ and I've seen an immense burst of confidence in our kids (and myself!) - especially off the mat when dealing with peers and adults. "Family" is painted on their wall and that is the best way to describe Sarah, Joe, their children and everyone who walks through the door.
Robert Trapp My kids love going to Fit Club BJJ. Coach Joe is awesome with the kids and teaches them amazing life skills! It's an awesome community of families! I even started going a few months ago after I saw how much fun they were having and have been hooked ever since!
Jaqueline Bush My kids are 9 and 11, and really needed a physical activity they could do together. They both started in Sept last year and ever since have enthusiastically gone twice a week. They come out sweating and in great spirits. Coach Joe is extraordinary in his ability to keep a room full of kids engaged, respectful and enthusiastic. Their progress is night and day since they started, from timid wall hugging to determined engagement. It's the only place I've seen all genders learn together and compete with each other, which is so healthy. Sarah is efficient and kind. A great family business, highly recommended.
Gada Alkhatib I have 3 children that started in February and absolutely love it! I have a 9 year old boy, 7 year old boy and 5 year old girl. All 3 have different personalities but have found a common activity to bond over. I can’t say enough good things about Coach Joe and Sarah!! The gym is family oriented and a very fun/welcoming atmosphere.
Sarah Fridman I have three children- a 10 yr old boy, 7 yr old girl and 5 yr old boy - all with very different athletic skills. They all take class at Fit Club and all love it. I am so happy to have an activity that they can all participate in together but more than that Fit Club has instantly become a home away from home. They are so incredibly welcoming and Coach Joe is such a special person. He really understands how to motivate kids and how to share his love for Jiu-Jitsu. This place has been such a gift for our family. Run don’t walk to try a class.
Andy Kovlakas I have my 9 year old daughter and 6 year old son enrolled here. I've known Coach Joe for over 28 years. I couldn't imagine anyone who I trust more to teach my children how to defend themselves, to be kind and respectful to everyone, and to build their confidence. Always amazed at how Coach Joe is able to control a class of 4-11 year olds that come in with so much energy. The kids have learned they can run around and have fun but when it's time to train they are ready and eager to learn. Strongly suggest coming down to check it out.
Paola Rotondi I LOVE THIS PLACE!! My son in particular has found a new love. (My daughter knows it's for self defense ... I sleep better knowing she could protect herself.. god forbid. Joe is a great teacher and a great role model. Sarah's amazing!!..love that it's a family affair. I'm so, so happy my kiddos are part of this group!
Maher Atta If you're interested in learning jiu jitsu there is no better place in town. It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or someone who has been training for years, Fitclub BJJ offers a welcoming environment. Professor Joe Oppedisano has created a fun culture for adults and kids.
Kevin Lim Our family loves FIT Club BJJ, coach Joe & Sarah both are awesome to all the kids. You want your kids to be disciplined, respect plus fun then you're in the right place.
Joe Bonauito Fit Club BJJ is a completely amazing experience and community of great people. Everyone there treats each other as family. I would recommend this place to everyone at every level!
