ABOUT F3

My Gym Can Beat Up Your Gym

F3 has been in helping people reach their goals since January of 2010. We’re an MMA gym in North Richland Hills that becomes a second home and family to those on a journey to become the best version of themselves. We help everyone, of all ages and levels, reach their goals and fitness or fight potential and gain confidence in self-defense technique through combat sports and martial arts. We achieve this through having the best coaches in the game that have put their methods to the test at the highest levels, both personally as active fighters and through the many high level competitors and fighters they’ve developed over the years. Our team’s dynamic, combined experience, and unmatched passion for combat sports and fitness has cultivated a culture of care in which we always keep our “why” -which is to help people- at the core of what we do.

Marina Martinez
Marina MartinezGeneral Manager

Marina’s always loved sports, but after a Marine Corps injury she gained a new perspective & renewed love of fitness. Beginning as a part-time counselor sharing her passion to help others start their journey, she eventually shifted from event coordination to focus on the fitness industry.

In the past 10 years, she’s been a part of 24 Hour Fitness, Life Time Fitness, acquired personal training certifications, and held management positions in Sales, Retention, Operations, Business, and Business Consulting. An avid F3 gym member for 2+ years, it was already her second home, and a place she was fully invested in seeing succeed. In August 2018, she became part of the F3 Team as GM. She loves the relationships built as a member, and now in her role in the business, and aims to maintain a customer-centric experience for the F3 family. Initially seeking stress relief, with a genuine interest in boxing, Marina stayed for the quality of coaching and culture of constant growth embraced at F3.

Coach/Pro Fighter

Evan started training in Boxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and Mixed Martial Arts in 2007 and began competing a year later. He’s since fought on national television numerous times, including on FightMaster: Bellator MMA.

It was there that “The Butcher” faced his biggest challenge- 3 fights in 21 days, which isn’t normal for high-level MMA. He lost the decision in the third fight and was injured, needing surgery. After a year and a half lay-off, and a hard lesson in humility and patience, Evan returned to doing what he loves, wearing his scars with pride. What he loves most about F3, aside from the great people he has the privilege of coaching, is that the coaches are not just sitting on the sidelines, but also active competitors, leading from the trenches- himself included. Understanding the practicality of combat sports to building useful self-defense, peak physical fitness, and character that transcends sport, he always brings his best to every class. He teaches Boxing, Kickboxing, and MMA Fit, BJJ, and Private Training. Between classes you’ll catch him Bang energy drink in hand and F3 hat on his head!
