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!

Workshop Template

The heat index was 112 degrees today in southwest Florida, and nobody cared if there was no air conditioning. We were there to learn from the incredible Ed Coan. Most of the people who came were extremely strong already, but they knew the value of expert coaching, they knew they could get even stronger.

I was very humbled to learning alongside some very accomplished Powerlifters, like Billy “The Tank” Tutko,  at this event.

The cool thing was, no one came across as rude or arrogant today. I was the oldest one there and one the smallest. Everyone was supportive and encouraging.

I learned a lot there and added over ten pounds to my deadlift PR. It was a very productive day!

PRs were being broken all over then place as Coach Coan worked one-on-one with each person there. His vast experience and knowledge let him pinpoint problem areas rapidly and teach how to fix each one.

Coach Coan really focused on the mental side of lifting as well as getting your whole body as strong as possible.

This very cool training event was held in a place that many would think was very unusual for Powerlifting, a CrossFit gym. However, this is no ordinary Crossfit gym.

CrossFit Havoc is run by Jim Denofa, and his lovely wife, Natasha.  Jim was a Powerlifter before he started CrossFit and he is good at both.

The take-home points are

  • never stop learning
  • never put limits on what you can do
  • train with Ed Coan if you ever get the chance
