our macefit.com classes will still be held at the regular times

These classes are too important to put on hold for two weeks while we run the other tests!

We are kicking off next month with our infamous quarterly strength & work capacity tests–

  • five barbell tests
  • two bodyweight tests
  • two macefit.com tests

Next we will have our monthly men’s strength club, “Iron Brotherhood”–

  • lift big
  • eat big
  • hang out with your brothers

Plus, our first macefit.com instructor certification will be held–

  • for coaches/trainers who want to lead the pack, not follow the herd
  • be well-positioned for the next wave of fitness training macefita1

In the world of fitness, fads come and go, but the basic fundamentals of training don’t.

Educating yourself to know the difference is essential.

Fads often show up around New Years and just before summer begins.

Many people suddenly panic when they see what bad shape they are in. They feel lousy and look lousy too. That’s when the fitness scams, like wacko diets and ridiculous exercises, make their money.

Scams are an “easy sell” to desperate, weak overweight people.

On the other hand, those that have done their “homework” will not be fooled.

Solid training concepts have stood the test of time.

The equipment required  for these training methods is usually very basic.

Nothing sexy or flashy, just results.

Anyone who has been to a legit certification knows that you get plenty of information in a short period of time. That is great if you can take action on it when you get back.

Obtaining facts and concepts is good, but knowing how to use the information effectively is way better.

Here’s a few photos of how I applied what I recently learned at the Vintage Strength Mace & Club Certification in Miami. This the first class after the certification.
