  • My daughter has been a member at BAAC for almost 8 years. She has been training in the children’s recreational and now youth competitive classes. This continues to be such a positive experience. There is the obvious reason of great exercise in a clean well maintained facility . We have made new friends. The encouragement and support she gets from the coaches and fellow members, is amazing. The coaches are fabulous and genuinely care for their students. The club has such a wonderful sense of community, you really feel as part of a family.
    ~ Sarah Mair-Ryan, Parent
  • This is the best kickboxing place. The teachers are the best and I learn a lot of things there. Not just kickboxing but also I learn about respect.
    ~ Logan Chantler, Youth Program
  • Having fought and taught kickboxing and boxing all over the world, I can truly say that this place is the one I call home. I don't live here anymore, but there is really no way to express the level of professionalism and inclusion that are embodied by this wellness centre of health and fitness. The owner, apart from being a multiple time World Champion, also has a Masters Degree in Education. This, among many other talents, experiences, and skill sets truly sets this 'home' for health apart from any other training facility in the world. They have managed to create a beautiful oasis in the world - and it is centered around boxing and kickboxing!
    ~ Sandy Pembroke, Former Member
  • Everything from professional training to beginner workouts, this place has developed athletes of all ages and experience. The values that this gym and all the members have are exactly the atmosphere that I want my kids and family to be involved in. I can't think of a better place to spend your time and energy. Plus, there's some pretty great coaches!
    ~ Brian Dickson, Coach
  • The Bay Area Athletic Club (BAAC) provides kickboxing, boxing, and fitness classes for elite and novice athletes of all ages. Although most of its members are drawn from the Golden Horseshoe area of Ontario (Burlington, Oakville, and Hamilton), there are numerous athletes who travel great distances to train under the world-class instructors at the club. The owners and instructors work hard to foster a real sense of community and belonging in the members. My entire family belongs to the club and joining BAAC is one of the best decisions I have ever made!
    ~ Rob Stevenson, Adult Program
  • The Bay Area Athletic Club is a wonderful training environment. It is amazing to witness and experience the transformation of building excellence through sport. I have trained for many years in the curriculum at BAAC with plenty of one on one sessions with Maz and his staff of incredible coaches. Under the watchful and meticulous eye of Maz I have witnessed good coaches become great ones, average fighters become extraordinary, troubled youth completely rehabilitate their purpose and direction for life (myself being one of them). I have watch the average Joe, over weight, on the verge of serious medical issues regain complete health and vitality. The Bay Area Athletic Club, Maz and all the great staff who work there have been an amazing blessing to my life and I wish everyone to experience such a great place.
    ~ Brian Douglas, Former Member
