When you walk into a boxing or MMA training gym for the first time it can be intimidating. There is a constant cracking of leather on leather as pads are pounded and bags are caved in under relentless punching. Everywhere you look there are guys, and girls, with blank expressions on their faces except for the embers in their eyes as they go about their daily routines. They move like the big hunting cats of Africa, effortlessly yet poised to strike at any moment. They posses speed, they posses power. And guess what, so will you one day.
Are You Reade To Be One Of Those MMA Fighters?

Within a few months your body will get rid of any excess weight that is preventing it from throwing double left hooks or slipping right hands. All that will be left of you physically is that which is necessary to run miles, and to explode into punches, kicks, and submissions.
The way you eat will change as you focus on being as light as you can while still feeling strong. The way you relate to others will change because you know what it's like to physically get the better of someone and yet they earn your respect by not giving up. You also know what it's like on the other end if things where you have to gain respect and improve yourself when people are more advanced than you.
