First come, first serve!

In January 2016 Don Giafardino came to the Cave to introduce his Adex clubs and maces for the very first time, I saw the value in his equipment right away. He came back since then for a couple of more workshops. His commitment level was and is “through the roof”! He has my complete trust.

Our entire Mace Fit program is based on the plate-loadable feature of Adex maces and clubs. They just make sense, especially for group training.

For a small gym, we have quite a bit of his equipment and have a solid following here locally for our Mace Fit classes.

Right now, Don has a big sale running on his Adex maces and clubs 

Take action and get yours during the sale! You will get great equipment at a great price!

 

No problem!

 

We will be having an introductory macefit workshop in the next few weeks just for people who are curious about this type of training but have never done it before.

The details will be announced soon, so check back.

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.

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.
