After thirteen years of providing executive protection security to many well- known celebrities, corporate executives, and former government officials, Newtown native Chris Petitti has opened a 6,000-square-foot training facility at 3 Simm Lane in Newtown, CT. Cannon Ridge Training Center was created to bring a more realistic and practical approach to training in the community with a focus on self-defense, fitness, and intelligence training.
CRTC also offers classes in cardio kickboxing, classroom security instruction, and personal training. “I want students to be able to come to one location to fulfill all of their needs. I want students to have the option to take a self-defense class, get their fitness workout in, as well as have access to the security and safety classes that we offer.” Students can catch up on work, surf the web with free WiFi, or sit back, relax, and watch TV in the Cannon Ridge Lounge. If they’re in a rush, they can grab a quick shower and head off to work. “With everyone’s hectic lives, I wanted to create a place where students could come in and train without having to rearrange their whole schedule in order to do so. We offer morning and evening classes to accommodate everyone.”
Petitti stresses that his goal is not only to teach you to protect yourself against an attacker or get into better shape but to help you physically and mentally prepare for the unexpected. “Many people go to the gym to work out to either prepare for a sport or to look good on the beach. Our goal at CRTC is to give you the confidence to take on any obstacle you may have to climb in life.”
CRTC has classes for all levels of fitness.
