It is an understatement to say the flood of information (and mis-information) on the Internet is very confusing.

There are some very credible training resources online which are often almost blotted out by hype and faddish nonsense.

Unconventional training is  not exempt from this any more than mainstream fitness.

The general public often falls prey to the flashy and unfounded promises of unscrupulous advertisers. They just know, and often are too lazy to do their “homework” to find the quality coaches & trainers.

People sometimes group things together in an attempt to  simplify things.

Take for example  mace training.

Is mace flow like a mace completion at the Vintage Strength Games?

No, not at all. The only similarity is that they both use maces

It is important for people to know what they would like to learn and why.

Here’s another example.

Is a mace certification the same thing as a  macefit.com certification?

Once again, the answer is no.

A mace certification teaches the mace.

Macefit teaches a broader spectrum of training using different types of equipment.

received_10207742930948208Don Giafardino and Lisa Hamburg drove from Deerfield Beach Florida to the Cave to do our first workshop on training with his excellent Adex clubs and maces.

This was a huge turning point in our training, to say the least!

I knew in my gut that this was something would be huge; back then I said it would be the next wave of fitness.

Don has done three workshops for us and I have soaked up his training like a sponge, and practiced like crazy over the past two years.

I was eventually certified through Vintage Strength Training as an Adex Mace & Club Coach. Now it is only fitting to launch our macefit.com during this time, which is focused on helping other coaches/trainers start their own Adex mace & club programs.

Huge thanks to Don Giafardino for taking a chance on us two years ago!

You will find maces in all kinds of places! This type of training is growing like wildfire all around the globe!

Most people train only in linear movements, but life doesn’t always move in a straight line.

Being Mace Fit means you have better mobility,  coordination, midline stability, rhythm, strength, and endurance in all planes of movement.

Mace Fit is a name I use to cover all our centrifugal strength training with maces or clubs. It’s just easier to remember.

Are you Mace Fit?
