Training for fitness or fighting...don’t get it wrong
Sep 17, 2019
 

When I began coaching, my experience was mostly working with people who wanted to compete in combat sports, or with those already competing as amateur athletes. As we added more classes to our gym’s timetable, I met people who wanted to use martial arts training to improve personal fitness, rather than fighting in the ring or cage.

I think the difference between these two groups is clear. Competitive combat athletes expect the grind of a training camp, hard sparring and sometimes being...

Unfortunately, in 2015 at the age of 30 I was involved in a serious car accident that left me with a broken wrist, torn meniscus in my knee, various torn ligaments in my foot and a bunch of deep gashes and cuts all over my body. Being an extremely active person, this accident left me feeling depressed, immobile and feeling like my world was caving in, but what kept me going were my dad’s encouraging words “You have to make your body strong enough to take what life’s going to...

Back in 2012 at the age of 27, I was on the verge of retiring from boxing, the sport that I had competed in since I was 10 years old. From boxing, I had serious hand problems and it got to the point where I couldn't button a shirt, turn a key, and it was even hard to zip my trousers. It was time for major hand surgery.

At this point I was an undefeated professional boxer, having taken bronze in the Beijing Olympics just a few years earlier, winning 7 national titles and a European Gold medal....

HOW BOXING SAVED ME AFTER A TRAGEDY!
Aug 22, 2019
 

After dropping out of college at half way through my Criminal Justice Degree, I knew that I made the right choice. A few months later, I started working out: Running, Zumba, KickBoxing, BodyPump etc. I became really obsessed with Health and Fitness. From there, I wanted to make healthy food choices (I would say just to have the full package).

 

Fast forward a few years later, something Tragically happened to me. I lost my 16 Year Old son (Kidnapped and Murdered) my whole life just turned...

GREAT PEOPLE BRING OUT THE GREATNESS IN OTHERS
Aug 21, 2019
 

Introduction

I try to surround myself & learn from coaches, personal trainers or other athletes I highly value because being around those who are better has a tendency to drive me to be better and push to improve. 

 For a lot of us that have been in high level sports we are very self motivated when it comes to our own training sessions but fact is not everybody is! Some people just want to workout to enjoy the social aspect or for the important factor of staying healthy so you...

Online Certification to Live Course Validation
Aug 20, 2019
 

In January of 2018 I decided to make a change in my life and dive back into fitness. As a lifelong athlete, I knew what I had to do. I walked into a local gym and gave it my all. I enrolled in the boxing program and fell in love with all it. The fundamentals, the mental and the physical part of boxing made me come alive.

I saw so many people that had so much potential. I also saw so many people that just needed a little push to get going because life had gotten in the way. That is something...

ADDING BOXING INTO YOUR FITNESS REGIMEN
Aug 09, 2019
 

2 major components to a successful fitness regimen:

  • Fun
  • Results

In order to have fun, you must “buy-in” to the program, or truly believe it will work, and be doing something you truly enjoy (or will come to enjoy via it’s results).

In order to get results, you must adhere to the program, or exercise, with consistency. To do so, you must be having fun!

Let’s talk about an outlet I (and just about everyone else who tries it) deem incredibly fun, a long term driver of...
