Tag Archive: conditioning


This is just a quick blog to clear this up. MMA is strictly conditioning the body, not a fighting art or learning MMA techniques. How do fighters get themselves physically and mentally ready for a fight? MMA conditioning! The train there bodies to endure the punishments of 3 – five minute rounds and 5 – five minute rounds for championship bouts. Most fighters already come from training in their specific discipline (Wrestling, Boxing, Kickboxing, Karate, Jujitsu, Tae Kwon Do, Hapkido or any combination.

The reason these athletes look for a conditioning coach is not to learn new fighting skills, but to enhance their physical abilities in the octagon. This is the main job of a conditioning coach. We take your strengths and enhance on them and take your weaknesses and help build these up to balance you out as a well rounded fighter. Also, a main purpose of a coach is to take any injuries and help strengthen and prevent injury to a fighter.

I hope this clears some questions or thoughts that any of you might of had as to what is a MMA Conditioning Coach. Train safe and always be prepared!

Well, where do I begin? I guess from the beginning. I am going to be blunt about this topic. You either want to train and make it happen or you don’t! My experience from people is that everyone “talks” about training, because everyone wants to take care of themselves and live a long and healthy life. But, there are obstacles that will keep you from this…and here they are:

1. No time
2. Injuries
3. Money
4. Kids

Listen, we all now that our economy is in the dumps at the moment, but think of it this way…they are saying that the increase in metabolic disease and other weight-related conditions could have a catastrophic toll on public health — and on the public pocket. If these predictions come to bear, they estimate that the additional overweight and obesity burden could add up to an extra $860 billion to $956 billion per year in health expenditures to treat these conditions. All told, this would mean that $1 in every $6 spent on health care would be spent as a result of the overweight and obesity.

If this doesn’t scare you….what the hell?! As Americans we can not let this happen. Bottom line, if you want to get healthy and fit you have to find the time, money and the will to do it. Each day you don’t help keep your body healthy, is each day that it is becoming weaker and more prone to injury and illness.

We all want the “hard body” that when people look at you they are in amazement! But, the plus side of training is keepingĀ  your body in top shape and reducing the chance of you not being able to live the life you want for yourself and your family.

That is it for now. Take care my friends and any training is good training, g
