The Benefits of joining OTFC
#1. Fitness and Health
Ultimately – its all about fitness and health. From getting fit for the summer, to getting ready for a fight, fitness and health should be everybody’s ultimate goal when joining a gym. At OTFC we like to say: Stay Motivated – Keep Training – Fight for Life!
#2 Learn a new skill
Get fit while learning a new skill! If you are new to Mixed Martial Arts, train with other Members just like you! And while you get in shape, in “Fight Shape” as we say, you’ll learn a valued skill along the way. Kick, punch, elbow, knee, sprawl and grapple. MMA means activating all your major muscles groups as you improve upon all your prime movements! You’re not just running, or swimming, or lifting weights – a Mixed Martial Artist (and those getting fit the MMA way) must utilize the 7 major primal movement patterns for full body strength! Push, Pull, Lunge, Bend, Twist, Squat, Walk.
As a MMA Athlete you need to push opponents away or off you. You need to pull opponents into your guard or into a clinch. You need to lunge to close the fighting gap. There’s a ton of bending and twisting as you fight your way out of awkward or into position. Squat to avoid punches or to lift an opponent before you throw them. And of course, if you can’t walk, you can’t run!
#3 Get confident with your bad self!
Kick that bag! Punch those mitts! Brace that core! Pump those weights!
You don’t get that at a gym that may be open 24 hours a day. And once you do, the confidence, the self-esteem, the pride – it all comes with putting it all out there and kicking some ass!
NO NO NO – you don’t have to fight to be a top fighting fit MMA Athlete! You just have to want to get fit and stay healthy in a unique and fun way that does not limit yourself to riding a bike for an hour or running on a treadmill for to build a healthy heart.
Your confidence will sky rocket!
We can go on and on… but here’s just a few more benefits that being an OTFC member can provide:
Competition: if you want to compete, we will get you in shape to compete!
Personal Training: Want someone to guide you through a circuit or develop a personalized Workout schedule just for you – just ask!
Meet new people? You can’t walk in or out of the gym without meeting someone new!
See you at the gym!
Stay Motivated – Keep Training – Fight for Life!
