Speed Bag :
Where a heavy bag develops power, a speed bag develops skill. Striking a speed bag in a workable rhythm requires focus, coordination and speed. It's also an impressive cardiovascular workout, which can improve your circulatory health and reduce your risk for heart disease, high blood pressure and similar disorders. The improved coordination may also help you in everyday life.
Ropes aren't just for sailing. They're a must-have tool for anyone looking to pack on lean mass. "The key to their effectiveness is that they work each arm independently, eliminating strength imbalances as they sculpt your muscle," says John Brookfield, creator of the original battling-ropes system. They also provide a killer cardio workout.
Jumping rope is a great calorie-burner. You'd have to run an eight-minute mile to work off more calories than you'd burn jumping rope. We will typical include this form of training into your fitness program. Building your stamina is one of our goals, so expect to jump often.
Free Weight Training:
While weight machines are good for helping novices begin strength training for the first time, after a few weeks on the machines you will need more variety of muscle movement, or risk becoming both sore & bored. Free weights exercises are “functional”, meaning they more accurately mimic the motions that humans engage in real life, allowing you to move better. We will often include "light" free weight training into your fitness program.
We will often incorporate focus mitts into your routine. We will typically call out combinations and "feed" you a good counter-force while maneuvering and working specific skills. Focus mitts are often used as an augment to sparring, with more explicit focus on the puncher than the feeder, especially to develop good punch combinations and defensive maneuvers such as "slipping," "bobbing" and "weaving."
The strength and aerobic benefits of tire training can enhance your performance in all sports from gymnastics to football. Tire training is one of the best total body strength and conditioning workouts that a person can do. You use your total body when you flip the tire, and by varying the distance you flip the tire nd time you flip the tire you can get a great aerobic work-out.
Bats and Sledge Hammers:
The sledgehammer and bat has been a conditioning tool amongst fighters since the inception of combat sports. It is certainly not a new tool in the arsenal of combat athletes. It is however an inexpensive and excellent conditioning device.
The Boxing Ring:
A boxing ring is the space in which a boxing match occurs. A modern ring, which is set on a raised platform, is square with a post at each corner to which four parallel rows of ropes are attached with a turnbuckle. While you get fit we will teach you the art of boxing. You will learn how to throw combination punches, upper and lower body movement, and how to defend yourself. Some of you may want to test your skills in the ring. If that's the case, we can have you perform some light sparing with an experienced instructor.
