Client Testimonials


“On February 12, 2018, I had a consultation with an amazing gentleman and Coach, Dustin Little, for a complementary Mixed Martial Arts introductory session. This was Family Day and also one of the most important days of my life. To this point I had made it through a 15 year abusive marriage and a 10 year marriage that was good and safe but failed in 2017. I have always been tough physically and mentally but this time I was scared, embarrassed and full of rage. I began a drinking, smoking divorce diet as I like to call it… lost 50 lbs, lots of hair and could not tell if I was sober anymore. I was working 6 days a week and exercising excessively, yet I just could not fix myself or find anything positive to move forward for. I was done! One evening, I received a call from a gym for a free 2 week trial and almost declined but thought to myself, “why not?” maybe this is what I needed. I went in, liked the atmosphere and bought a membership. Dustin came to meet me with a big smile, looked me straight in the eyes and shook my hand. For the first time in a long while, I felt safe. This is where I needed to be. During our consultation he asked what brought me to the gym and I replied “a divorce”. He told me about his life coaching and shared his past triumphs and hardships. I was not one to share my past but here we were connecting with similar experiences. We then set up life coaching, conditioning and kickboxing sessions. From the moment I met Dustin, I was comfortable and able to let my guard down. To have someone believe in me when I did not believe in myself was baffling but I was not going to let him down. We have been training together for almost 2 years now and I will never train with anyone else. His training techniques realigned my posture, repaired my torn shoulder injury and straightened my right leg which had rotated outward over 30 years ago. Dustin relates and connects with his clients. He creates a fun atmosphere and has a presence that energizes the room, especially in a group setting. No matter how intense the workout, whether it is kickboxing or conditioning, solo or in a group, we have all come back for more and have followed him wherever he goes. I believe in Dustin and will support any venture he chooses. He brought me back from the lowest point of my life and gave me the confidence to manage my own self physically and mentally. I highly recommend Dustin Little to everyone. He has an amazing spirit, dedication and the ability to change peoples lives.”

“When my son first came to Dustin, he didn’t know what he really wanted. He just wanted to try
boxing out. Dustin became this huge support system for us. Not only did he help my son through
his fitness needs, but was and is an amazing mentor. At first, our initial needs were to help my son
through his fitness and health, but it turned into something much greater than that. My son formed
a lot of trust, hope and drive through Dustin. It took some time, but within a year and a half the
transformation was incredible. The weight loss was one thing, but most importantly the
confidence, strength and mental health was the greatest. My son really looks up to Dustin now so
much that he texts him anytime of the He sees him as a great coach, mentor and someone
who he can turn to when he’s going through tough times as teenage boys do. We can’t thank
Dustin enough. Our lives are better because of Dustin’s love, passion and compassion.
Thank you Dustin for being you.” ❤️

you get it. If you want to hit your fitness goals in an enjoyable way and learn skills that will help you

“I am writing in reference to Dustin Little as his client. I know him through my friend, who has taken
courses with Dustin before and recommended him highly to me. Dustin is extremely professional,
energetic, and responsible. He can make different plans for different people with diverse conditions
and requirements. Dustin also checks if clients can do the assigned tasks regularly. He is always

energetic, especially during training. His active encouragement is key for clients to achieve their
goals. Dustin is the best trainer I have ever met, and he is also the only trainer who helps me truly
lose weight healthily in my life. He is the only trainer who can change me completely with my
appearance and hobbies. The outcome is obvious. I recommend every individual who would like to
become much healthier and better to train with Dustin.”

“I first met Dustin when he joined the UFC Team as head coach. What a breath of fresh air hewas. I’m an enthusiast to say the least when it comes to working out and staying healthy. When Ifirst met Dustin a few years ago, I was 48 and in all my years of working out, had I yet to see theskill set, energy and passion this man brings to the table. Boundless is the only word I can thinkof. At one point, UFC GYM had lost most of their staff because of poor management, but what Iremember most is Dustin stepping up to the plate and coaching every single class, workingridiculous hours yet never losing his energy and passion. Dustin never just coaches; he’s invested.He “always shows up: for his client in the most motivating way. My son has a disability and startedtraining with Dustin almost two years ago. Words cannot describe how thankful I am for not just thetraining, but the love, support and friendship that came along with it. Dustin puts his heart and soulinto everything he is passionate about and his character is solid and immense. I wouldwholeheartedly give a recommendation for any venture Dustin wants to embark on.”
