Most people searching for an optimal workout regimen fail to consider martial arts as viable option. Instead, many seek out traditional gyms and fitness centers, believing that they offer the most effective classes and equipment for building strength, cardio, and endurance or reaching other fitness-related goals. There can also be an inherent aversion to using martial arts training for fitness based on a mistaken belief that their primary focus is to teach fighting skills.
As long-time martial arts practitioners, the owners of Tallahassee-based Train. Fight. Win. know that martial arts training offers exceptional workouts that can significantly boost all elements of one’s physical fitness. Martial arts-based workouts are highly effective at helping people lose weight, get ripped, gain strength, enhance dexterity, improve balance, boost speed, improve cardiovascular performance, or pursue any combination thereof.
Train. Fight. Win. is a mixed martial arts (MMA) studio that focuses on Bang Muay Thai, a hybrid fighting system that combines techniques, movements, and strategies used in wrestling, karate, boxing, kickboxing, and Muay Thai, Thailand’s traditional martial art. Not only has BMT training been widely adopted by amateur and professional MMA fighters, it has also gained popularity as a self-defense program and superior fitness regimen for non-fighters. And we base our claim on “superior” because BMT training provides both aerobic and anaerobic workout benefits that can burn over 1,000 calories per hour.
We certainly train and support MMA fighters at Train. Fight. Win., but also offer comprehensive and dynamic fitness programs through our Tallahassee fitness center. Our classes incorporate many of the methods and equipment used by our fighters to prepare for competition. That is, training that helps develop the physical fitness of elite MMA athletes—talk about fit! We tone it down, though, so it doesn’t exceed the capabilities of our non-fighter participants. Toned down, but still providing top-level workouts designed to help you meet your fitness goals.
While more challenging than many fitness programs, our classes are fun and the group-based training confers the proven benefits of boosting motivation, enhancing endurance, and improving performance. Our classes also provide you with valuable self-defense skills and the confidence to use them should you ever find yourself facing a threat where they are needed.
Our fitness classes are taught by highly experienced trainers who incorporate the techniques and equipment used to prepare our MMA fighters for competition. While most of our courses teach striking and defensive moves, they do not involve person-to-person sparring. Such sparring is an option offered to fitness class participants, and many people who sign up for our classes opt-in for some light sparring as they enhance their fitness and gain confidence.
As you will discover, the practice of striking and defensive movement is a vigorous exercise on its own. This form of exercise is supplemented in many classes using equipment such as dumbbells, kettlebells, medicine balls, rowers, treadmills, jump ropes, resistant bands, tires, sledgehammers, and battle ropes.
Battle ropes, sledgehammers, and tires?
Yep, these exercise tools provide incredible gains in strength, endurance, flexibility, agility, coordination, and explosive power. Trust us, by using this innovative equipment you will feel the burn and see significant results!
Our classes provide an exceptional workout, and we suggest that you try different ones to determine which will best meet your fitness goals. Our classes include:
Along with our regularly scheduled classes, Train. Fight. Win. members can work out with our equipment during daily ‘open gym sessions’. Unlike most gyms and fitness centers, you’re not tied to our membership program with a contract. While our focus is on mixed martial arts in general, and Bang Muay Thai in particular, those joining our program solely for its unique fitness regimen are never coerced into fighting. Though through our training, you will inevitably pick up some self-defense moves. That could prove invaluable should you ever be forced into a situation in which you need them.
