Don’t limit yourself

One of my favorite mentors, Zach Even-Esh says, “I won’t discriminate against anything that will make me stronger!”.

I agree 100%!

I will be out of town for a couple of days.

Training will resume on Tuesday, make sure you check our updated training schedule

Rest while you can, we will be in “attack mode” when I get back!

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 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.
