“Krav Maga Great Lakes really helps you meet your goal. The accountability coaches, trainers and members are all there to make sure you are working to your max potential, the support is amazing. I had been using a fitness center for the past 4-5 years, but never got the results I did from KMGL. I have to give most of the credit to KMGL’s unparalleled staff support and the great friends I’ve made along the way. During my 6 week challenge I lost 16 lbs, 5.3% body fat and dropped my BMI from 28.1 to 26.8. Nothing else I’ve tried worked as well as KMGL.” Corey B.
“What a great experience and a high quality training Krav Maga Great Lakes. I’m already looking forward to our next trip.” Scott A.
“This is a great place if you want a change in your life. The programs that KMGL offers can help you lose weight, get in shape, eat healthier, and learn awesome self defense techniques in the process. The owners (Dori and Mike) are a wealth of knowledge and are always there to help keep you on track to your goal. The classes are awesome. I always look forward to going and regularly see other people there for multiple classes a day! It’s probably because the instructors build an environment of motivation and encouragement that challenges you but makes you want to keep pushing yourself. It’s what you would expect out of any top-notch training facility.” Jeremy B.
“I had a great experience with the instructors, staff and other students! The 6 week challenge is a game changer with working out, diet and accountability. Favorite moment: I was the last one to complete my round and not only did the other challengers join me in completing my last round but the instructors did too! They shared words of encouragement the whole way! That speaks volumes to me about the community and atmosphere that Mike and Dori are creating. Great experience, highly recommend it!” Jenn C.
“Dori and Mike (the owners) are amazing! They are motivating, knowledgeable and so nice. The workouts are the best workouts I have ever done! They are tough, but fun. At the end of a 6 week challenge, I was so much stronger. I really noticed a change in not only my health, but my strength and cardio. I highly recommend this place!!!” Jennifer B.
“Great class and group of people. It was my first class and definitely kicked my butt. You won’t be disappointed if you give it a try! I did the 6-week challenge and it was great. I had Jamie and Ellie as instructors for my classes and they were by far some of the best workout instructors I have had. The classes seemed a little intimidating at first but Jamie and Ellie would always take the time to show you step by step and get you moving in the correct form. I was able to lose 27 lbs in 6 weeks following their diet plan and I felt like I was eating more food than before I was dieting! The whole experience was great, fun, and tough! If you are looking for a body reset and way to start toward a healthier life style they are definitely a good place to get started.” Eric J.
“This gym is amazing. The classes are tough and the instructors push you to the max. Everyone here is friendly and help each other out. I have been going for 6 weeks and have had a great experience each time I walked through the door. Best of all, the programs get results, you just have to put in the work. I highly recommend this gym if you are looking to get pushed and have a fun time while doing it!!!” Bobby P.

“This place is amazing the workouts are tough but you will get results.” Carol C.
“Let me first say this. The people at Greats Lakes Krav Maga, truly care about you and want to help you accomplish your goal. But don’t confuse their want to help with being a pushover. They are firm task masters that will make you get you rump in gear. When I started, I was pretty hopeless. Could barely remember how to do a pushup, and haven’t worked out in two years. At first I had to ask “how do I modify” because I couldn’t do a lot of the exercises. I never felt they looked down on me for asking to modify. They just show me how to modify the exercise so I could build strength. It is a really great place to learn self defense while getting fit at the same time! They have a deep bench of knowledge instructors all with their own style, so you really learn from multiple points of views.” Brooks TDog
“Their 6 week challenge program is amazing! It is a great balance between a tough but fun physical workout regimen and a transition to a healthier lifestyle through a custom nutrition plan and support / accountability group. Plus, you learn self defense techniques. I’ve lost weight, feel more energized, and am learning how to protect myself better. That is a win, win, & win in my book!” Nicole M.
“I joined KMGL 6-week challenge to get into better shape. I knew I wouldn’t be able to do it alone. Before I struggled with the motivation to get to the gym, but during those 6 weeks, I actually looked forward to attending classes. I was so nervous and worried my first day but that quickly changed within minutes of my first class starting. I have never felt more welcomed or relaxed in a place that I had no clue with what was about to happen. I liked the workouts, but more importantly I liked the people and coaches. They were all supportive, motivative, and helpful and I was so glad to be part of that family. People of all levels felt like they could participate and the coaches really work with you and give individual attention. The nutrition plan is easy to use and understand. I have gained so much knowledge about why I should eat the things I needed to and not just to eat them because I was told to. It has been the best decision I have made in quite some time and I can’t give enough praise to this gym and coaches. Even if I was not successful with my goals in the challenge I still would not feel any different. That is why I’m glad I became a member and am staying after I honestly had no plan to stick around after my challenge was over. Thank you Mike, Dori, Ellie, Jamie, and everyone else I’ve worked with there. You have all been amazing and I cant wait to keep moving forward and progressing with you.” Matt R.
“I just did the krav maga 6 week challenge and I am very pleased with this organization and am continuing on to good health and fitness with them. anyone looking to change their lives of health and fitness and learn an exciting new way of self defense with a great group of people and trainers this is the place! I highly recommend krav maga great lakes!” Bill G.
“What is Krav Maga? I had watched some videos of Krav techniques on Youtube and told my wife. She surprised me and found a groupon and i tried it out. From watching the videos I only wanted to learn the techniques. After several classes it was addressed that the techniques are only one aspect. You need to have stamina and that is what the fitness portion of their program helps achieve. When a violent incident occurs you will need to have more than techniques to “Go Home Safe”. These three words have been ingrained in my mind from my training time at Krav Maga Great Lakes.
I continued to see the bad events unfold on the news in the world and in our surrounding areas so after the groupon ended i became a member of Krav Maga Great Lakes to continue learning Krav Maga to protect myself and my family. While training here the mindset of “Go Home Safe” is present in each Krav class. Krav Maga Great Lakes is a place that changes your mental attitude to focus on your situational awareness in our day to day activities and changes your mental toughness to not give up when confronted with stressful situations. The training provided by the exceptional staff is amazing. It has changed me for life and I am grateful to them all. If you are concerned for the safety of yourself or family and want the fundamentals and ability to “Go Home Safe”, without a doubt you need to sign up with Krav Maga Great Lakes- Today!!” Ryan G
“I walked into Krav Maga Great Lakes for the first time, part of me wanted to turn around and walk back to my car. I felt awkward and unsure of myself. But I stayed and fought through the uncomfortableness. That decision was one of the best I ever made. As we progressed from class to class I got stronger and my self confidence improved. Today, I went in for measurements to conclude the first challenge and begin the next. I have lost 5% of my body fat, reduced my BMI by 2.6 points and lost 17.25 inches. I have never loved exercise so much!! Dori Berean and Mike Berean, you are the absolute best. Thank you for providing an environment where everyone can succeed and become their very best.” Kelly Byam 2/26/16
“Taking Krav Maga as a teenager was an excellent decision for me. Not only did I become more confident that I could defend myself, but I became a much more confident person. Mike is a highly-skilled Krav Maga practitioner and an excellent instructor who will push you to your limits. At KMGL, you will become comfortable defending yourself in a wide variety of scenarios and using no-nonsense offensive techniques to fight off attackers. This isn’t karate, this is real.” Timothy Gielow
“I love how genuine the trainers are at Krav Maga Great Lakes! Got some great life advice today!” This place is absolutely amazing. The entire staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and so helpful. Same goes for the members I was welcomed in on my first day like I was already part of the Krav family! I really encourage anyone at ANY fitness level to at least try it! You can get fit and have a good time doing it!” Erika Roberts
Krav Maga Great Lakes’ Dori, The Dominator, is solid and will give you a great, challenging full body workout. Her fitness/nutrition knowledge is evident… Just look at her!! Had my annual physical yesterday and my glucose and cholesterol numbers have not been this good in a long long time. My doctor called me a walking example of healthy living. Thank you!!” Susan Alonzo
“Just started a few weeks ago amazing training. Good classes these people know what they are talking about.” Kevin Brown
“Myself (44y female) and 3 teens just joined. Into our 2nd week. Having tons of fun! Mike is walking a good line between pushing us and correcting, but not bullying or shaming. Other than making a 44yr old woman to do cartwheels and backward somersaults the first day 😛 we are loving it.” Renee Miller
“AWESOME instructors!! Very educated and extremely patience with those training. They are very approachable and understanding of your needs no matter what your size or physical needs. Many various classes are offered especially classes specific to women’s self defense seminars. The owner is very honest and will always guide you in the right direction based on your physical needs and goals. He will not try to push you into something your not ready for or don’t need! I LOVE THIS PLACE!!” Laura Mullen
“…what attracted me to Krav Maga was the fact that it focuses on real life scenarios, such as off-guard attacks, multiple attackers, and defense against weapons. I was more interested in learning to protect myself and my family in a crisis rather than taking martial arts for sports purposes. The Krav Maga Great Lakes family has been very welcoming, and the instructors are actually interested in making sure every student is performing the techniques correctly. The class has built my confidence …mentally as well in focusing my energy 100% in everything I do. I’m very pleased with my decision and learning the different moves are a fun way to exercise and build confidence.” Derrick R.
“I joined in March 2012. I am 50 years old. Because of the Krav Maga training system, I am in better shape now than I have ever been in my life. I feel more confident than ever that I could protect my family, myself, and others against multiple attackers. Oh yes one more thing, I can eat whatever I want because I know I will be burning off the carbs in class.” Jon K. Krav Maga Instructor
“On behalf of Hillel at Western Michigan University, I wanted to thank you for teaching the introduction to class. The student participants truly learned the basics of Krav Maga and enjoyed themselves. We hope that we are able to collaborate again in the future. Thank you again.” Caryn K.
