How To Get In Shape With Mixed Martial Arts Training

How can you get in shape with mixed martial arts? First, let’s consider this: what image comes to mind when you think about mixed martial arts?

 

Is it two sweaty people clobbering each other?

Is it a chain-link cage and bloodied individuals?

Is it a boxing ring with unfamiliar rituals?

 

What if that was only a small portion of it?

What if mixed martial arts was actually more?

What if it was a modern evolution of an ancient tradition?

 

Mixed Martial Arts (or MMA) is a multi-discipline practice that pulls from many warrior traditions, and, as you may be aware, that means its application can be quickly applied to many facets of daily life. In fact, a person who regularly trains in MMA always benefits from boosted wellness to improved fitness while learning new skills to stay safe and secure.

 

Fortunately, this can be easily accomplished when the instructors focus on your goals and what you hope to accomplish with an MMA program. By listening to a person’s needs, an MMA coach can effectively tailor Private Coaching sessions or even group classes to help you quickly make the progress you want. Whether it’s a sense of renewed confidence, shedding a few unwanted pounds, making new strength gains, or even meeting other like-minded individuals, choosing an MMA program for self-defense and fitness is always a great choice to make.

 

So, how exactly does a person get in shape with MMA training?

 

MMA training helps develop the strength and stamina you need to feel powerful and help you conquer your day. Each training session at Invictus begins with a High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) performance warm-up focusing on full-body, body-weight aerobic strength conditioning for agility which is immediately followed up by a durability session focusing on proprioceptive balance and muscular elasticity for flexibility.

 

The benefits of MMA training are truly endless but here are a few great reasons to start today:

 

Mindfulness

Training in MMA requires exquisite attention to performing the task at hand with focus and intention. Fortunately, anyone can learn how to develop increased attentiveness through a simple process known as breath control. Navy SEALs and elite athletes easily leverage this skill by activating their parasympathetic nervous system which conserves energy as it slows the heart rate and reduces adrenaline production keeping a person calm and centered. To do this, a person simply focuses on inhaling and exhaling through their nose slowly and always returns to their calm breathing technique even while performing bag drills, sparring, or HIIT training.

Body Composition

MMA training is a full-body, aerobic activity that uses body-weight resistance training thus improving the following areas (a) :

      • Develops strong bones
      • Assists weight management
      • Enhances quality of life
      • Helps manage chronic conditions
      • Sharpens thinking skills

Fortunately, whatever your training objective, most people use MMA training to help them achieve their goals and even increase their metabolism. In fact, anyone can see that MMA training is a great way to get in shape and have fun while quickly learning new skills to keep them safe and secure.

Resiliency

Everyone knows that much of a person’s wellness depends on the ability to quickly recover from difficulties whether physical, mental, or emotional. The best way to develop resiliency is by persevering through challenges forcing our neuromuscular system to adapt to the new and varying stimuli thus creating lasting change. Luckily, MMA training boosts self-confidence, and, over time, improves a person’s mental and emotional neuroplasticity through physical endurance and stamina. From skill progression to improved fitness abilities, the impacts of MMA training on a person’s adaptability continues to improve with each belt rank advancement.

 

And best of all, this is just the beginning! The best way to find out more is to experience it for yourself. Regardless of how you choose to train with us to get in shape (online or in-person), now is a great time to get started in MMA training! So, if you’re ready to have MMA training make a difference in your life, it’s easy to GET STARTED with Invictus and we would love to help you accomplish your goals!
