Rancho Santa Margarita, CA, January 02, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Mixed martial arts (commonly referred to as MMA by its loyal followers) has quickly become the fastest growing sport in the world. Reserved for some elite athletes in its modern inception in the early 1990s; MMA is now a billion dollar industry with raving fans all over the world. Many of its stars have bodies which look like chiseled statues. This fact, in conjunction with the dynamic training regimens, make MMA the workout of choice for a growing list of people.
By definition, MMA is a mix of various martial arts such as Brazilian jiu jitsu, boxing, wrestling and kickboxing. In recent years, the strength, power and conditioning exercises for MMA have been refined and combined with the latest exercise science. The result is a totally unique workout that provides a high caloric burn, the elimination of workout boredom and the knowledge that you are on the cutting edge of fitness. And perhaps the best part of participating in an MMA fitness class is that you won’t get punched in the face or submitted in a choke hold. It’s just about the workout.
Dr. John Spencer Ellis, CEO of the MMA Conditioning Association, states, “If you are someone who gets bored with ‘traditional fitness workouts’ MMA conditioning is for you. You will learn very unconventional exercises and workouts that are not done in any other type of fitness class. Personal trainers are not taught these types of exercises and workout programs unless they have received specialized training,” Ellis goes on to add, “Of course, MMA training can be brutally hard. However, an MMA Conditioning Coach knows how to train elite fighters and weekend warriors alike.”
This is the time when people around the world seek out a new way to lose weight, get fit, stay motivated and, perhaps, get the body of a Greek God. An MMA workout may be just what is needed.
