Get in shape, MMA-style

Sometimes, working out with the same old routine, day-in and day-out, starts to become more of a burden than a pleasure.  It is at this point that we need to try something new, because without consistency, those fitness goals are hard to reach.

MMA-style training 

There is a new company in Austin called Advanced Strength and Conditioning Systems, and their focus is on MMA and MMA-style training.  Among their clientele are both professional and amateur fighters, but also everyday people who just want to get in shape and try something different.  

Their options for the non-fighter include monthly memberships, with 1-3 workouts per week, taught by experienced MMA trainers who are NSCA certified.  Class times are flexible, as well, so you will definitely be able to find a time that fits your schedule.

Class content includes strength and conditioning training much in the same way that a fighter would train, but without the risk of injury.


MMA training is unique unto itself, because the blend of strength, conditioning, and cardio routines of MMA offer an extremely varied approach to getting in shape, and the constant shift between various movements keeps the body from adapting.

It is also for this reason that MMA training is a great way to lose weight.  

Contact the trainers at ASCS by e-mail, at  Their website is currently under construction, but all the information you need can be found there, at
