I have been a long time advocate of training martial artists by applying cutting-edgesports science to their conditioning programs. In addition I am bringing the best that themartial arts has to offer to the training of mainstream sports and fitness. I have 25 yearsexperience in the martial arts and holds black belt ranking in multiple disciplines and hasinstructed civilians, military and law enforcement personnel.I have always been fascinated by functional training. I often wondered what were thesecrets of real functional training and conditioning that allowed some men to performnear superhuman feats. Growing up I thought that you were strong if you had big armsand a huge chest. The guys I knew did whatever bodybuilding exercises they read aboutin magazines or heard about in the locker room, I did the same.As I became more educated and experienced I realized that had little to do with realstrength training. In fact some of the strongest guys I came to know rarely had a swollenchest and bulging biceps.I have seen big, seemingly strong men knocked out by men half their size. I have servedwith men who were all of 5 feet 8 inches but had backs, abs and legs made of flexiblesteel and a will of unbreakable iron. I have had seen instructors no bigger than 5 feet 6inches that could knock the wind out of you by merely brazing your skin with their fist.The question is how did they get that way? how did they train? How can the averageperson use those methods for better fitness?Real strength training, in my opinion, is functional, athletic, practical and in many casesvery simple. The question often asked these days is how much strength is truly enough.Well, that would depend on who you ask. Strength and conditioning training mustprepare the individual for the challenges he, or she, will face on a daily basis.For a stay at home mother of three that may mean having the strength to take care ofher children and still have enough energy to have a life for herself. For the weekendwarrior it may mean being able to play the game on Sunday and not feel as beat up by iton Monday morning. For a soldier it may mean being able to endure extreme physicaland mental hardships while still maintaining a cool head under fire. For the athlete it willmean having as much explosiveness left in his body and mental toughness to carry himthrough the last two minutes of play as if they were the first two.Then I was introduced to “Crossfit”. I founded “Strong to the Core” on the belief thatto be truly strong, one must possess many different physical qualities, as well as a strongmind and good character. This approach is inclusive and integrated. By incorporatingcrossfit which core conditioning & strength training methodology, classic strengthtraining methods like kettlebells, barbells, sandbags and body weight training, modern“functional training” tools like resistance bands, medicine balls and balance trainingtogether with proven sport psychology concepts the results are undeniable.Bruce Lee once said, “Absorb what is useful”. In that spirit I will use whatever trainingapproach is viable, relevant and effective in order to help a client reach his potential. Ihope that you will find information that will help you reach your fitness goals, whateverthey may be, so that you too can become “strong to the core”.
