Does Mixed Martial Arts count as a workout?

Yes, absolutely! The fitness industry is constantly changing, and many people are joining our Mixed Martial Arts gym to get their fitness in. Our Mixed Martial Arts gym has become a place where you practice self defence and get fit at the same time. 

Self-defence and fitness training combined.

Mixed Martial Arts is relatively new because but also contains vast knowledge of different types of martial arts styles such as Boxing, BJJ, Muay Thai and Karate. Practicing all the self-defence strategies together requires immense physical exertion, which means, you get to learn self-defence and get fit at the same time.

MIXED MARTIAL ARTS IS A PERFECT WORKOUT FOR ANYONE WHO WANTS TO HAVE FUN AND GET FIT. SO, HERE ARE 4 REASONS WHY MIXED MARTIAL ARTS CAN SERVE AS YOUR FITNESS TRAINING TOO!

Aerobic Exercise through Mixed Martial Arts.

The fast-paced training that we do at Soul Martial Arts is a great way to do High Intensity Interval Training because your body demands higher energy output in a form of a burst combined with segments of time. What’s even more interesting is that your heart will be pumping for a long time, even after your training. That’s called EPOC (Excess Post Oxygen Consumption). This is the key to burning more calories long after your training is over. This is why you see that most people that train MMA are in top physical condition.

Whole-body workout through Mixed Martial Arts

Many people think that Mixed Martial Arts is all about fighting, but it’s so much more than just a self-defence or punching and kicking. In fact, practicing martial arts needs you to exert force all over your body and really work on your core. For Example, when you train for Muay Thai at Soul Martial Arts, we teach you how to Clinch, how to properly have good head movement, lots of jumping, engaging elbows/knees to strike and, most importantly, proper footwork. All this training requires you to activate your whole body, and this is why people who practice mixed martial arts tend to have a strong core, leg, back, and chest muscles.

Mixed Martial Arts will help you burn fat and get leaner!

Each session of Mixed Martial Arts can burn up to 1000 calories, which will have a tremendous impact if weight loss is one of your goals. 

Avoid fitness plateaus when training for MMA.

If you are looking to get in shape or just have some fun, Mixed Martial Arts is a great way of achieve both. One cool aspect about doing Mixed Martial Arts as a supplement for your fitness isn’t necessarily how effective it will be for overall health; but it’s how Mixed Martial Arts training has various levels and have particular styles which you can achieve one by one. You can be sure that you will never get bored with MMA because it’s more than just going on a treadmill every day.
