Why MMA Training is the Secret to Incredible Fitness Results
Training for MMA is a full-body workout that pushes your body to limits like no other sport, and can get you in the best shape of your life and has some other great benefits. Take a look at what MMA Training and Coaching can do for you and your clients.
MMA Provides a Total Body Workout
Many sports require one set of muscles to be used more than another. For example, competitive swimmers have strong shoulders, cyclists have strong quads, and soccer players have strong lower bodies. In order to be safe and successful in the ring, MMA trainers and fighters need to have a strong lower body, upper body, and abdominals.
MMA workouts are designed to incorporate practically every muscle of the body. When you kick as often as an MMA fighter does, your legs become incredibly strong. As you punch, your arms become equally strong. And, the more you grapple, the stronger your core will become
MMA training also improves flexibility tremendously. Grappling helps develop your flexibility as you go.
More Than Just Fitness
Working out at a regular gym can be monotonous, and finding the motivation to push yourself can be really hard. Even in a group class, the workouts can become routine if you are going. The only thing to focus on is getting through the workout.
Because you’re building self-defense skills as you go, you have something to think about as you exercise. Instead of being a chore, working out and training actually becomes something you look forward to, something new to learn, and an exciting challenge that motivate you.
It’s an Exciting and New Workout Style
When you work out at a regular gym without a personal trainer or coach, you have all of the responsibility of coming up with a workout on your own. You need to know how to stretch and warm-up properly, organize your workout appropriately and do the techniques correctly. This ability to train your body for the quickest and safest results takes training and know-how.
Burns Calories Super Quick
Grappling and striking put more muscles to use than running on a treadmill, cycling on a stationary bike, or even using the elliptical. Your core is almost always engaged, and the workout is non-stop. You can burn up to 590 calories in a single 45-minute striking class. In a grappling class of the same time, you could burn up to 620 calories.
Better than Cardio
MMA training and workouts incorporate strength, aerobic and metabolic conditioning. You get endurance, strength, agility, power, and so much more from an MMA class. MMA workouts are a version of HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training), which maximize the number of calories you can burn during a session.
