Best Gyms in Calgary

Hey everyone. Hey whats up guys, i just joined the forum and i got a question. Im 21, 5"9 and stocky, im just finishin up my college and im plannin on joining a MMA gym in Calgary or Airdrie, AB. I'm trying to decide which gym i should be joining and which style of fighting would suit me best. I've been training cardio and weight training since high school, and with my college finally finishing up i'll have time to get into MMA.

I want to know what everyone thinks is the best gym in Calgary to get started. I know there is gonna be no solid answer but I'd like to hear everyone's opinion. Im more interested in striking if that helps.

Any replies would be greatly appreciated thanks alot!

Kickboxing and MMA Gyms Calgary

I would have to say that Dynamic MMA is probably the top MMA and Kickboxing gym in Calgary. I have jumped around to tons of different clubs, but Dynamic is the place I've stuck with. Everyone is so friendly and treated me like family as soon as I walked through the door. They have this huge octagon and everything too! If you're looking for one of the top MMA gyms in Calgary? I would say you should most definitely check out Dynamic Mixed Martial Arts club.
