Punching above your weight - 5 health benefits to fighting fitness and our new Warrior Program



There are numerous benefits to fighting fitness training, not the least of which are the physical, mental, and spiritual equilibrium that comes from this sort of training.


From physical improvements, to the enhancement of both your mental and spiritual well-being, any types of fitness associated with fighting is a great way to start any training program.


Fighting fitness has amazing health benefits and can get you in the best shape of your life in a short space of time which makes it one of our best training disciplines when it comes to training our clients as it is by far one of the most effective weight loss types of training.


It is no secret that to achieve your fitness goals and ultimately the body you want, you have to put in the work and be dedicated. There is no magic pill you can take that will get this done and in an era where obesity is becoming an epidemic of epic proportions, a lot of us are opting for a healthier lifestyle.


One of the ways to achieve a healthier lifestyle is to follow an effective training program and our Warrior Program is exactly that, but to show you exactly what we mean, we have listed 5 benefits you will experience first hand with our Warrior program.


1. Boosts your self confidence.

One of the many great benefits of our Warrior program is the development of a solid sense of self and self-confidence.


Warrior and the techniques you learn require a certain degree of patience and attention to detail. There is a lot to learn within our Warrior program from striking to footwork and breathing. However, once you have learned these techniques, there is a sense of accomplishment. This sense of accomplishment empowers you with self-esteem and confidence.


Our Warrior program will push you to your mental and physical limits. A person can discover a great deal about themselves during this training. Knowing more about ourselves makes us more confident within our own skin.


Knowing that you have the ability to defend yourself and being confident in your abilities is one of the most liberating feelings you will ever experience.


This acquired confidence through Warrior will also permeate into your daily life, whether it is at the office or in the classroom. Self-confidence is an incredible by-product of our Warrior program.


2. Wonderful weight loss and magnificent muscle tone.

For many of us, due to the development of unhealthy eating habits, poor nutritional choices, our addiction to sugar, and simply not getting enough of what we like to refer to as necessary nutrition, a lot of us are facing the reality that obesity could be in our future.


The obesity epidemic has quickly spread throughout the world over the past two decades and many diseases associated with obesity, such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease have become out of control.


Studies have shown a direct correlation between these diseases and the size of our waistline and therefore we need to take action now and minimise our chances of contracting these diseases by minimising our waistline and more importantly, our visceral fat.


Warrior is a complete and effective workout that tackles this issue in a fun and enjoyable environment . One of Warrior's most noticeable benefits is allowing you to achieve peak physical fitness whilst promoting healthy but aggressive fat loss and body fat percentage reduction.


If you are looking to kick fat's ass, get your life back on track, and knock a few inches off your waistline, then Warrior is perfect fit for you.


Warrior is about learning to defend yourself and protect your health.


3. Increased overall strength and hand-eye co-ordination.

Apart from the rigorous physical activity, Warrior also helps you enhance the mind and the body.


Although Warrior is a physical program, it is also designed to test your mental strength and teaches you to think under pressure.

We also focus on the 4 pillars of the Warrior program which are honour, respect, courage and perseverance, all of which can be carried over into our daily lives.


You may also not think about the importance of hand-eye coordination and its affect on total health, but hand-eye coordination plays an important role in a person’s gross and fine motor skills. Individuals with good hand-eye coordination tend to have faster reflexes and reaction times, and tend to have better physical coordination as a whole. This is particularly important during age-ing, as coordination and balance become compromised, increasing the risk of falls.


Warrior can help hone hand-eye coordination. When you’re tasked with punching your trainer's padded mitts, you must be able to see the target, react to the target, and hit the target, all while the target is moving and changing position. It’s tough, but with practice, your hand-eye coordination improves substantially.


4. Decreased Stress

Almost any form of moderate to intense physical activity can decrease stress.

Studies have shown that exercise can increase endorphins, boost mood, work as a form of meditation, and improves sleep, all of which help reduce stress.


Warrior is designed to help you de-stress in two ways:

Firstly, due to the intensity of the Warrior program, there are sections of high intensity training and short recovery periods which doesn't allow for you to do anything but concentrate on getting through the workout. When you’re pushing yourself through a couple minutes of high-intensity punching or kicking, you don’t have much mental power left to worry about how awful your job is, or how dirty your house is. And even during rest periods, you’ll be focused on sucking air and mentally preparing for the next round, not stressing over your packed schedule.


Secondly, the cathartic release you experience with each Warrior session leaves you feeling free from stress as you punch and kick your way to a more relaxed, peaceful you.


5. Improved body composition

Warrior delivers unrivalled body composition results.


Due to the nature of our Warrior program and most of our training programs, it is designed to improve your body composition.


When people say they want to lose weight, what they are actually saying is that they want to lose fat. Improving your body composition means that you reduce your body fat percentage whilst increasing your lean muscle mass. Our Warrior program is designed around this fundamental goal including increasing bone mass density, decreasing visceral fat, improving hydration levels and reducing your metabolic age.


Warrior is an amazing mechanism for improved body composition because it perfectly combines muscle-building strength training moves and calorie-nuking stints of cardio.

By participating in our Warrior program and following a positive eating plan (50gram Eating Plan), you will be astonished at the progress you can make in a short amount of time whilst having fun doing it.
