People About Us

BEST PLACE TO TRAIN! Seriously, ask me about joining M1 and I’ll say it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. thai boxing review

Melanie Di Nallo

Great reception. Great workouts. Amazing instructors. Great culture. A well kept, clean, respectable gym. I have already lost 20 pounds in my first month. muay thai review

Ross DiStefano

From the moment I walked in, I knew without a doubt that I wanted to be apart of the M1 family. Having explored multiple martial arts gyms in the Vaughan/ Mississauga area, I can confidently say that none of them come close to what M1 has provided me over the last 2 years. mma training review
