Discover The World Class Conditioning System That Will Transform The Way You Prepare For Combat Sports

Learn to create the most effective conditioning program for yourself even if you have no strength and conditioning background!

If You'd Love To Be In The Best Fighting Shape Of Your Life (Without The Lung Busting, Vomit Inducing Sprints), Then This Will Be The Most Exciting Message You've Ever Read.

I used to think high-intensity interval training or just sparring and rolling is all you needed to be in the best shape possible for combat sports. It's what the "experts" have always said right?

I have learned a lot about conditioning throughout my career as a strength & conditioning coach working with high-level athletes.

I've also encountered many failures as an athlete following the so called "experts."

I spent months training for the Austin Open IBJJF Tournament. As almost every "expert" on the internet says, "just roll more" and you'll be in tip top shape.

So I did, I was training BJJ and rolling 5-6x per week! Come the tournament, I was excited. I was the leanest I'd been from sound dieting and felt in great shape.

So much so that I won the first round. But after that first round, man oh man was I absolutely gassed. When it came to my second round, I was toast. 

And that was the end of my competition. There were many things I didn't know then that I know now that I want to share with you.

Such as the aerobic energy system isn't stressed very highly during rolling. That high-intensity interval training can really be detrimental to your fight performance regardless of your martial art if performed chronically.

What many fighters don't realize is that hard training does not guarantee fight success. All hard training guarantees is that you trained hard.

A Note From Me

This online course is everything that I've learned through hours of research and application condensed into actionable, video bites.

I'm not one to hold things close to my heart. I want to share the knowledge I've acquired because many people have helped and shared with me along the way.

My hope with this course is that you will be one more combat athlete to move away from lung busting, vomit inducing "finishers" and embracing a structured conditioning approach that will level up your gym and competition performances.
