As a Martial Arts school owner, joining Legacy Martial Arts Consulting was the best thing I have ever done. After spending years scraping by and having to work a second job, five months with legacy increased my student count by 110%, allowing me to live comfortably while eliminating my other job. I cannot thank Nick enough for his guidance and support to make this happen.


I’ve been consulting with Nick Castiglia since 2012, when I began consulting, we had one small location (2000sq feet), about 70 members and were making all the mistakes. We were on the brink of bankruptcy and grappling with having to close the business. After I sat down with Nick to discuss what we could do and he said something that I will never forget and, I believe, changed my path for business success. “Either you go all in and focus on your MMA career or you focus on a successful business but you can’t do both.” Because I was also competing and fighting in MMA, and having a successful journey but also trying to run the business… seeing as I was living in the back room of the gym with my wife in a bunk-bed, I made the decision to listen to every piece of advice and go all in on having and go all in on having a successful gym. 10 years later I have 2 locations over 11,000 sq feet, over 1000 members between both locations, own my own house and have a rental property! I married my wife, had a two week honeymoon in Thailand and have travelled to over 30 countries since then! Life is good but I legit did everything I was told and more, and I mean everything I was told to do I DID! Over those 10 years. I have and continue to host Nick for staff training seminars every year and attended all the events for business training ! I continue to consult to this day but now with more of a focus on what to go with the money, investments, consulting advice for my retirement and real estate plans and business succession with Nick!!


If you’re thinking of opening a Martial arts studio make the best choice you can possibly make by hiring Nick. You won’t regret it! Nick saved me from thousands of dollars in bad choices. I am one of the most skeptical people in the world, I grew up in New York City where everyone you meet has a pitch. The difference is this isn’t a pitch it’s real proven results backed by years of experience. If you don’t believe it just take a look at my gym’s social media. Pictures speak 1000 words.

As someone who has always leaned towards skepticism, even bordering on cynicism, within the Legacy group, I approached anything related to the business side of coaching with a negative mindset. Sales, marketing, consultancy – these aspects left me wary. Despite knowing Nick since I was 18 and witnessing his effectiveness as an entrepreneur, coach, gym owner, and promoter, I still harbored doubts. I feared being pushed into activities I didn’t align with just for the sake of profit. I was apprehensive about seeking help, worried it might compromise my integrity.

Legacy Martial Arts Consulting has not only helped our gym to double its membership base and income, but it’s taught me the importance of organizational structure and having critical systems in place. Its 1-on-1 accountability style coaching forces you to climb and live up to yours and your gym’s highest potential. LMAC also emphasizes the importance of work-life balance and provides helpful ‘life-coaching’ tips to mitigate burnout. I will continue working with Legacy Martial Arts Consulting as we are now required to expand into a new facility.

If you have never hosted summer camps before, be sure to hit up the Legacy coaches! I’ve run summer camps ever summer and they’ve always been okay in terms of revenue. Using Nick Castiglia’s coaching strategies I’ve doubled my revenue and sign ups in just a week’s time vs 3 months of marketing last summer’s camp offerings. Thank you legacy! Y’all are the best! Legacy has been the single greatest investment we have made since buying our school
