Fit 2 Fight: FREE Home Training Program

Philip Ameris Jr.

Typically during the months of July & August, our 12 Week Conditioning Boot Camp (Fit 2 Fight) is on "break".  During this time, our Dojang offers a FREE Introductory Taekwondo Program to any interested Fit 2 Fight participant, as well as a limited time Friday Night Kickboxing Class ($10 drop in fee) to any adult student or guest. 

Although the options are plenty, we will also be providing a FREE 4 Week Training Program to tide participants over until F2F Round 3 (September 13, 2016).  The training program below does not require much equipment and can be performed in little time.  It is important to note that these workouts DO NOT FEATURE any of the KICKBOXING portion of our full F2F program.

Participants should also understand that these Workouts are mere suggestions that can and should be modified if needed.  There is also no provided demonstration of any type in regards to the proper form of the exercises mentioned below.  We encourage anyone using these workouts to first check with a medical professional to ensure their own personal safety and health, in addition to consulting with a proper Fitness Professional to ensure each exercise is being performed with optimum technique.  

We hope that these workouts provide you with an outlet for ongoing health and fitness, and welcome all interested participants to our Summer Friday Kickboxing Class (6:30 - 7:30 pm).  Please visit http://www.TrainLikeAFighter.net for any additional information regarding our Full 12 Week Conditioning Program, Fit 2 Fight.

All The Best,

4 Week Home Conditioning Program

 

HOW TO USE:  This 4 Week Conditioning Program can be used as a Stand Alone Method to get in shape, supplement additional Strength Training, or provide a some what "stop gap" for current Fit 2 Fight Participants.  The only equipment needed is a Jump Rope and Kettlebell.

We suggest participants Train 2X Per Week + Friday Night Kickboxing Class.  We encourage participants to keep a workout log (simple notepad and paper) with them to track progress.  Be sure to note rep counts during circuits and timed exercises* when appropriate. - this will provide a baseline of where your current fitness levels are and where they can be.  

TIMED, NOT FOR TIME:  Timed exercises should be performed with optimum form and pace with a running clock.  Be sure to note the amount of time it takes for you to finish the appropriate exercises.  DO NOT rush through he exercise in order to execute as many reps as possible in a given period.  

All students to should properly warm up before each workout.  Below is a sample Warm Up that we use often at Fit 2 Fight.
