Milos "MJ" Jeftic

Milos “MJ” Jeftic has been training in martial arts for the past 23 years, including karate, kickboxing, boxing and Jiu Jitsu. Originally from Serbia, MJ became more serious about strength and conditioning training, as well as competitive kickboxing, after moving to Chicago 7 years ago. Living near BTY and constantly seeing gym members running around the block, MJ decided to give BTY a chance. He continues to train at BTY to further develop his strength and conditioning. After developing a new career as a personal trainer, he wanted to help BTY members reach their full potential and started working as a coach at the gym.
