I first met Bud Jeffries as a result of getting his  first book, that I knew of, back in 2004.

I recommend all of his books!

As I studied I was very impressed with his both his strength and his spiritual outlook, so I called him and talked for a good while. Needless to say, he has been a huge influence on my training and coaching ever since.

He has been to my gym several times, he did a Strongman Seminar with Scott Weech, Jr., then he came back for Jeff Martone’s  Kettlebell seminar, and once again for John Brookfield’s Battling Ropes seminar.

I trained with him twice at his Super Human Workshops in Tallahassee, Florida. Most of the time, his son Noah was there too.

He was incredibly strong even from a very young age.

In fact, Noah did a seminar at the Cave himself back in 2014.

Noah left this life as a very accomplished young man. Bud and Heather Jeffries set up a foundation to honor him called Noah’s Army

The upcoming Strongman Workshop Bud will do at my gym will be a fundraiser for this foundation. The date will be announced as soon as it is confirmed.

Since we are having the macefit.com instructor certification on Saturday and Sunday, we will be closed on Monday.

We are blessed to have  people  traveling in from different parts of the U.S. and even from South America for this certification!

We will make sure it is well-worth their investments in this!

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!
