Why Aspiring MMA Fighters Should Get a Personal Trainer

You need to become extremely health conscious and take a lot of care of your health.

Excessive fat, body weight, and a fatty appearance are the greatest enemies of a successful fighter. In order to lose weight and gain slim figure, men are practicing workouts in gyms and exercises regularly. Special types of exercises are also helpful in losing extra weight to a large extent.

Regular workouts in gyms can get you fit very quickly and effectively. In order to do the exercises correctly and accurately in a proper manner, you need an expert, highly experienced, and qualified personal trainer for the gym and exercises. If you are in California, we highly recommend Next Level Fitness who specialize in building fighters and will have the perfect Irvine personal trainer for you.

What is a Good Personal Physical Trainer

The first priority to get fit is to hire a skillful and experienced personal trainer. There are certain specific qualities, features and characteristics in an ideal personal trainer. You should check certain things before hiring a personal trainer.

He should be a professionally certified person from a reputable institute of gym and exercise. The trainer must have a very good and pleasing personality. The trainer must have enough patience and tenacity to take care of the new pupils and teach them effectively.

A good physical trainer must know very much accurately each and every detail of the various fat reduction exercises and different types of gym equipment and instruments. He should properly suggest the most suitable exercises and workout machine types for women, depending upon their age, height, weight and various medical conditions.

You must show their updated medical checkup reports to the personal trainer before starting the gym and exercises. These should be done in order to avoid any negative side-effects on the general health of women during the workouts and exercises.

Time Schedule

The date, duration, and time schedule of the gym and exercises should be set by the trainer. He must take care of the fact whether his client is practicing their exercises regularly at home as well as at the gym.

The trainer should carefully watch and observe while his client is practicing on the machine or exercises. He must point out and rectify the women if they practice the exercises wrongly. The trainer himself must be a hundred percent physically fit to take up physical training as a profession.

He should also be aware about the health of the women during the exercises and comfort and ease them if they suffer from any kind of physical discomfort or fatigue during the workouts.

Physical Training as a Profession

In present day, men and women are also taking up personal physical training as a profession. They even go to the houses of their clients and teach them yoga, exercise, and even workouts with home equipment and instruments.

The men and women personal trainers also charge very reasonable for their valuable training. The women all around the globe are highly satisfied with the good effects of the physical training by the professional personal trainers.

However, we recommend getting a personal trainer, either a man or woman, who has MMA experience or experience training MMA Fighters. If you don’t know where to start, we recommend checking out Next Level Fitness. Check out their video tour:

Update 07/03/14: Many people have been vocal about the danger of MMA and going on about how the sport should be banned competitively nationwide. We just wanted to point out the fact that boxing, a “traditional American sport”, is actually far more dangerous. One famous study has concluded that 90% of boxers end their career with some form of brain damage.

Why doesn’t this happen to MMA fighters? Truth is, it does, just not as frequent as boxers. The reason is because in MMA, you are allowed take down your opponent and fight on the ground. If the ground fight continues, either fighter is allowed to make their opposition “tap out”, which means to tap the floor or their body frequently as a signal they give up due to being in pain by their opposition. Tap outs occur when a fighter locks one of their opponents in a grip that causes tremendous pain, but no long term damage.

Additionally, it is even more safe inside the gym to train and get fit using MMA as the instructional material. Personal trainers and MMA trainers will ensure things don’t get too heated and casual sparring is taken way less serious in practice than competition. In conclusion, MMA is safer and if it is being called out as too violent, please look at boxing first, which causes more damage to the human body in the long term.

Go See a Chiropractor if You Train Frequently

Go See a Chiropractor if You Train Frequently

Something that’s highly overlooked in MMA training is resting and recovery periods, especially if you need something worked out by a chiropractor.

Examples are deep tissue massages and Active Release Technique (ART) therapy. Seeing a chiropractor at least once every two months will help you recover faster and allow you to continue pushing your limits and reaching your maximum potential much longer.

How does this work? Inside Next Level Fitness, we have our sister company, Next Level Wellness, owned and operated by Dr. Vasili Gatsinaris and his team of chiropractors, massage therapists and acupuncturists. Dr. Vas says that he give deep tissue massages to body builders in the gym because it allows them get pain relief in muscles that are causing irritation. When these are worked out, the body builders are able to work out that muscle group much harder than before. This faster recovery time leads to quicker muscle and strength gains.

This same principle can be applied to MMA fighters as well. Since MMA fighters must endure frequent injuries, they often require long recovery periods. Tweaked backs, necks, and muscle injuries are all types of issues that a chiropractor and massage therapist can help with – getting you back on the mat at 100% quicker than ever.

That’s what’s great about the Next Level facility – we have a state of the art gym built around real weight and circuit training, plus a chiropractor and wellness center right inside so you are able to get treatment in the same building.

Additionally, Next Level Wellness is home to the best Irvine chiropractors located in Orange County, CA near John Wayne Airport. In total we have three chiropractors – Dr. Vasili Gatsinaris, Dr. Kim, and Dr. Adam. Each chiropractor has a highly devout following and have worked with multiple professional athletes on teams such as the LA Dodgers, Miami Heat, LA Lakers, and even athletes at University California of Irvine.

If professional athletes get treated by our chiropractors, you know they are the real deal. Now we are focusing our efforts on helping our local community in Irvine and surrounding cities in Orange County.
