Fitness fallacy

July 31, 2012

As the fitness industry grows high, ther are its lows. I get a pain in my neck, everytime I read of an MMA training program from “fitness gurus” who have never competed in anything resembeling MMA.

Certification Circus

June 13, 2012

It seems everywhere I look in the fitness and martial art industry; everyone seems to have certifications from A to Z.
