Doctor Neal Kravitz Smiles on Capital MMA & Elite Fitness
“Capital is very close to my South Riding practice, but that’s not what keeps me going. It’s truly the greatest BJJ place on the planet. I put my trust in instructor Jeremy Lafreniere. His entire team at Captial MMA have helped me improve my fitness and my learning of self-defense. 10 STARS for Capital MMA!”
Capital Is Family For Pro MMA Fighter Iman Castaneda
“When I was 18 years old I left my home in Morocco to escape a marriage my mother had arranged between me and a man much older. After arriving in America I was kicked out of my new home when my father realized I wasn’t interested in living a strict Muslim lifestyle. I had no friends, spoke no English and became homeless. But I was motivated and worked hard.
My life went from waiting for a truck in front of 7-11 for labor jobs, to sales for a home decorating company, to becoming a firefighter for Fairfax County, Virginia, to a career as a professional mixed martial arts fighter.
Capital became my family. They supported me, pushed me and trained me to achieve my potential! I am forever grateful for this community.”
Coach For Capital CrossFit
Major John James Develops A Mind To Fight
“During my time in Washington D.C. piloting Marine 1 for the president, I would think about concepts like leverage, timing and remaining relaxed. Then and now, training BJJ – along with Muay Thai and MMA – has made me a better athlete and war fighter… and a better person. After all, BJJ is based on timing, balance, and leverage… just like the challenges of life. The perspective, discipline, and patience gained through training permeates every facet of my life. It keeps me in shape, offers opportunities for self reflection, and engenders itself to a confidence unlike any other endeavor.”

CrossFit Means A Better Life For Chris Schmidt
“The man I am today is completely different than the child I was 3 years ago. The community that surrounds Capital is one-of-a-kind. It is accountability for those who need it, guidance for those who seek it, and a presence for those who need a place to feel grounded. The number of life lessons learned in the last three years of training outweigh the previous twenty-four. Part of this is due to CrossFit, part of this is due to the Capital community in Alexandria Fairfax, VA. CrossFit is a fitness instrument used to achieve results physically and mentally. In order to use wield this instrument properly and effectively, a family, a community, must surround.
Without CrossFit, I would be your typical, overweight, lazy American. Over-caffeinated during the day, over-indulgent during the night, and overtly complaining about everything from my job to my poor health, misplacing blame for my dissatisfaction with life.
Capital and CrossFit has taught me many lessons, but one above all. Own your life.”
