Our programs include:

Krav Maga:  The Israeli self defense system that is a fantastic workout.   The most battle tested self defense system in the world!  Perfect for females and males alike as Krav Maga does not rely on brute strength, size or athletic ability.  Have fun as you burn calories and lose weight.  It is truly the workout that could save your life!

Kids Self Defense:  Our newest program to build confidence and skills, while building fitness and having fun. Ages 9 and up!

Combat Grappling:  A grappling-based system whose central theme is the skill of controlling a resisting opponent in ways that force him/her to submit. Due to the fact that control is generally easier on the ground than in a standing position, much of the technique of Combat Grappling is centered around the skill of taking an opponent down to the ground and wrestling for dominant control positions from where the opponent can be rendered harmless.

I.C.E. Bootcamp Fitness:  Our thirty minute bootcamp workout is different every class.  This is a total strength, conditioning and cardio class!  “Get in, get into shape and get out & on with your life!”

I can’t wait to meet you in person, and help you reach your goals. Whether you’re looking for fitness, confidence, inner-growth, or self-defense – we’ll help you get there.

Testimonial from Ray McGury, Former Bolingbrook Chief of Police

Home 1 HomeI wanted to let you know about a new training facility in Bolingbrook.  I’ve been training with The Krav Gym owners, Mike and his wife Megan at their Glen Ellyn facility, and rather than try to explain what this is all about I encourage you to come by and see/try for yourself.  If you have kids, bring them. Females of all ages should definitely give this a try. You think your too old…BS.

Something we lack BIG TIME in our society today…Situational Awareness.  Put your phone down and look around!  We’re all guilty of this. This training’s foundation is based upon this principle.  Get out before !@#(& hits the fan.  Deploy the tactics/techniques The Krav Gym will teach you which are SO basic and the reason why it’s so effective.

Finally…no one makes you feel like a goof here.  God knows I’ve given my partners enough ammo to do so.  Do they push you..Yes. Hurt you or embarrass you..No.  This will be the best cardio workout you have had while working at whatever pace you can. I continue to lift and always will but give this a try.  It’s a VERY humbling but worthwhile experience when a  5′ 2″ 105 lb female smiles as she takes out a 6′ 3″ 255 lb man ( quickly and efficiently. Puts things in perspective real quick…

Thanks for listening…

Be Safe and Well,


Ray McGury, Former Bolingbrook Chief of Police
