TRIAL SPECIALS Real testimonials, from real people...
“The trial gave my child a fair chance to try out the classes and see if it was something he enjoyed. For me it was beneficial to see how the coaches worked out with the kids – if the kids were getting the most of their experience – if not – we try something else. Everyone exceeded expectations at Roufusport and the trial special was very important in our decision.” – Bryan P., Milwaukee, WI (for son Aiden, 10)
“I was nervous to start something new. Once I purchased the trial, I knew it was go time! When I got to Roufusport and received my free pair of gloves, I knew I was ready! I fell in love right away.” – Cassandra F., Milwaukee, WI
“The kid’s trial special gave Ethan the opportunity to get in the class and let us know if he wanted to continue. After class he was able to let us know he wanted to do this!” – Kristen L., Milwaukee, WI (for son Ethan, 4 years old)
“The trial gave me the opportunity to try it without commitment. It’s long enough to determine if this is something I wanted to do long term rather than just trying out the one class. You can even get a taste of your improvement!” – Christine R., Milwaukee, WI

As soon as I walked in I was hooked. I was greeted with so many friendly faces. Everyone was really nice and welcoming and so forthcoming with information!
Ever since we've (son Landin and I) joined here, everything has gotten better... grades, behavior, discipline, eating, freidns, people that we hang out with. It's not just a gym, it has turned our life... our lifestyle! I've lost 32 pounds in 14 months and I'm hopefully going to lose more!
I spend all day behind a desk, behind a computer. It is grueling; it's a lot of stress. Coming here is my stress relief! Not only does it give me more confidence in myself, it keeps me in great shape! It's a family at the academy! Honestly, I don't know what I'd do without Roufusport.
This place and the coaches are top notch. Everybody here feels like my family! My physical appearance is a by-product of my lifestyle that's changed in order to train harder. I never thought I'd even like Jiu-Jitsu... but it's my favorite thing to do here! You never know until you try and I highly suggest it!
I've met so many new friends! This place has really given me a ton of discipline and reminds me to always pay attention to detail. I'm here everyday and I'm sure you will be too if you join up now!
It has been the most amazing experience that I've ever had! I cannot recommend Roufusport more highly! Before I was having trouble losing weight. I lost weight. I got fit! What's more is a I started taking these classes with my daughter.
The Roufusport lifestyle has changed me a lot... It gave me confidence. The lifestyle itself has made me goal conscious everyday. The coaches, staff and members have made me realize I could reach my potential!
