Strength, speed, flexibility, and endurance are cornerstones of a fighter's training regimen. Together they build the kind of athleticism that determines your downfall or your domination. And it’s not limited to the Octagon. Whether you’re traversing an obstacle course race or competing in an amateur CrossFit competition, you need to be well rounded—you need muscle and agility, endurance and explosiveness.
UFC Gym lives up to their motto “Train Different” by providing classes that combine strength training with cardiovascular conditioning. Instead of conventional cardio, you’ll push sleds, flip tires and slam sand bags in their Daily Ultimate Training class. Modeled on high intensity interval training, these crazy periods of work and short recovery strengthen your cardiovascular capacity and torch calories long after you leave the gym.
You’ll also get a taste of their main expertise, MMA and kickboxing, in the MATRX class—a cutting edge routine that incorporates TRX suspension. TRX increases your movement capacity and engages your muscle fibers in a way free weights and machines can’t because it utilizes your own bodyweight from various angles. Your stability, flexibility and endurance are strengthened—and most of all, your mind is engaged.
What better way to train like an athlete, get the physique of a fighter, and get in the best shape of your life than to ask coaches and trainers for the very workouts they use when they want to torch fat, kick up the intensity, and get in tip-top shape? Exactly. There is none.
“Our overall goal is to provide the best possible training environment, coaching, and programs for our member base,” says UFC Gym SoHo General Manager Jason Dunton. “We don't just give you a gym for you to hit your goals in, we run by your side and help you get there."
With these 6 routines from UFC Gym SoHo coaches in your workout repertoire, you’ll hone the skills, build the strength, and acquire the endurance of a UFC fighter. Put in the work and you’ll see and feel a transformation in your body and mind in little to no time.
