Our History

Fitness Edge MMA was founded by Michael Kelley in October of 2009. Beginning with only basic MMA classes that took place in the evenings in a group exercise classroom in our Carolina Forest location. We quickly began to expand our classes and programs to morning and evenings due to the amount of participants and requests. The popularity and demand became so overwhelming that a re-location was necessary. We wanted a large enough facility to accommodate the variety of styles in Mixed Martial Arts and a facility large enough to hold multiple classes at multiple times throughout the day.
We opened our current Conway Facility on May 3rd, 2010. Fitness Edge has always had the reputation of having the nicest facilities with the most variety of equipment. Our MMA facility was going to be no exception.
