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!
