Fight TLV is a martial arts, self defense & fitness club located near Tel Aviv’s beach.
Fight TLV wanted to stand out in the martial arts crowd in Tel Aviv, make a strong first impression for newcomers, appear on Google’s first page search results, increase user sign-ups from the homepage, display all the classes on the homepage and make the schedule mobile friendly.
Instead of going for the clichéd “dark and gritty” website with dark background and red highlights, I colored Fight TLV with white as the main background and blue as the call to action color, because of the proximity of the establishment to the sea.
The sign-up form is right under the hero header, with all the right keyword phrases and a minimal and effective, copy.
We’re also showing all the information for trainees right after: classes and schedule.
