I'm in my 40s, but for some reason I was really intrigued by MMA training. But I thought, 'There's no way I can do that. That's for guys in their 20s!" My wife convinced me to at least give it a shot. I'm so glad I did. Maybe I don't have the stamina of some of the other guys out there - but that's never once stopped me from showing up, having a blast, and giving it everything I've got. Age has nothing to do with it. They'll make sure you have a good time no matter what.
I got so sick and tired of the gym...it was always crowded and I think that waiting 15 minutes for each piece of equipment is just ridiculous. So I decided to check out this MMA class. I wasn't really sure that it was going to be for me. I love the burn I get from weights and wasn't sure that I was going to get a good workout. But he day after my first class, my muscles were screaming at me even louder than when I would hit the weights hard at the gym. On top of that, there's never a wait and the class is always filled with cool people. It's way more fun then I ever expected. Besides, I get a much better workout here than I ever got at the gym.
HOLY CRAP THIS IS FUN!
“Holy crap this is fun!” Man, there's just something so awesome about this training. It's like there's this side of me that I just can't let out anywhere else, but every class my most primal, animalistic side gets to shine. And it feels friggin good, let me tell you. I mean we all have some aggression in us, right? Where else do you get to beat up on punching bags and just let it all out? And not only that - but have a ton of fun too. Oh, and I've never once been injured. And I've never once been afraid of getting beat up or anything like that. No one's about hurting each other here. Everyone's about having a good time, getting in great shape, and learning some kick ass techniques.
