Have A Plan, We Can Help
What martial art will be your first focus? Will you join an MMA gym? Will you take MMA classes? Before you begin, you should think about the pros and cons of each path. Factor in your time, budget, and how soon you want to be ready to fight.

- Increase Endurance
- Learn Grappling
- Eat A Training Diet
- Hire A Trainer
Mind Over Matter
The first real step to beginning MMA training is to overcome your own mind. In military boot camps, one of the first things the drill instructor yells at recruits is that all of the training and pain is just a mind game to overcome.
If you strengthen your mind to face the challenges you will meet in training and on the mat, you can accomplish anything. Your trainer can help you get in the right mindset.
The next step in MMA conditioning is to increase your overall endurance for more intense training in the future. Your cardiovascular health needs to be excellent. You might start by running and increasing the distance until you can easily tackle two daily miles.
If that sounds like a waste of time, it isn’t. The strength to keep going is a primary component to winning a fight. Our classes are a great way to complement your conditioning efforts.
Benefits Of An MMA Personal Trainer
You may not think you need to hire a personal trainer, but if you are serious about your goals, it’s a given. An MMA trainer already knows the ins and outs of the sport, has been refining their knowledge and experience for years and will use that experience to create a plan for you. Each fighter has a unique set of natural talents and skills, and someone with experience can help to best develop those.
