What is MMA Fitness?
Frequently Asked Questions:
Is there any contact in MMA Fitness Classes?
NO! There is no contact, or partner training in MMA Fitness. MMA Fitness is a fitness program designed for individuals to work at their own pace. The exercises are safe for women and men.
Is MMA Fitness Martial Arts?
No, MMA Fitness is based on the training methods used by Mixed Martial Arts athletes. MMA participants are considered by most to be accomplished athletes who have obtained the highest levels of fitness. We have modified some of their training techniques to create this fitness program. MMA Fitness will get people into the best shape without having to train in MMA. This makes MMA Fitness not only one of the best and most challenging workouts one can get, but also safe and fun.
I have never worked out before…..is MMA Fitness for me?
Yes, unlike and aerobics class or other fitness classes, where an instructor is leading a group of people through various exercises at a certain pace, MMA Fitness is broken up into 5-5 minute rounds that are made up of timed segments within those rounds. An individual can push themselves at their own pace for each exercise.
What should I wear to class?
Participants should wear comfortable fitting workout clothing. Participants must be bare foot. MMA Fitness Members can purchase MMA Fitness T-shirts and Fingerless MMA style bag gloves at Park’s TKD. A bottle of water is recommended.
How long are the classes?
MMA Fitness was designed to get maximum results in a short amount of time. The class is 30 or 45 minutes which consists of 5-5 minute rounds with a 1 minute rest in between. This is the same format used in a championship MMA match. This allows an individual to complete a great workout with a minimum time commitment. We also offer “MMA Fitness Plus” classes as well. “MMA Fitness Plus” classes are consisted of more than MMA Fitness classes.
