I have always been interested in the body and generally how things work so I try to live and  promote  a healthy lifestyle. Zumba is all about attitude and style, not necessarily about dancing, but with the right attitude I will have you singing in Spanish and dancing while people are watching and you won’t even know it.”

About Rebecca

 Deshawn Stevenson

Boxing/MMA/Meltdown Instructor

I am highly skilled and have trained for about 8 years in Boxing, Wrestling, Brazilian Ju-Jitsu, Kick Boxing, and I am familiar with Muy Thai due to my brief 1.5 years of training. I have been doing personal boxing training for adults and kids, some with special needs and also the under privileged. I have been doing one on one training session for about 2 years, and have recently begun doing group class at title boxing.

I’m currently am undefeated in MMA (8-0). I am the undefeated Battle of the South titleholder in both the 185lb weight class and the 205lb weight class. I also hold The World Kickboxing Association title of USA National Champion in Thai Boxing, which earned me a place on the US team for the World Championship tournament. During my career with MMA I have received 4 other titles/ championships including; 185lb King of Jacksonville title, 205lb King of Jacksonville, and the 185lb XFC Championship title.

My goal is to help others maintain their fitness goals, as well as accomplish their fitness goals. As someone who was over weight, I have personally over-come what was one of the most difficult battles of my life. It is important to me to encourage and support others fighting the same battle! It is also my goal to teach others the art of fighting that has become such a big part of my life.

I have included a link to my highlight videos from my early fights, you can find my other videos via this link as well. I look forward to helping all of you become unstoppable!
