I’ve known Nick and Caio for a long time but was always hesitant about joining. Our academy, the Mad Tiger Academy, joined this past year and it has been nothing short of amazing. The group of people you are associated with are all amazing individuals and I look forward to visitng San Jose more often!

I had been teaching and running gyms part time for 10 years. Thanks to professor Caio and everyone at CTA, my gym, the Caio Terra Academy - Irving, has finally started gaining traction. It’s my hope in the next 1-3 years I can do what I love full time! I can’t recommend CTA enough!
