Train­ing pro­gram to pro­duce fight­ers

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

FIVE reg­u­lar guys from across the Whit­sun­days have signed up to be in­volved in a gru­elling train­ing pro­gram that will cul­mi­nate in a fight at the next Air­lie Fight Night in Novem­ber.

The Air­lie Fight Night ex­pe­ri­ence is be­ing put on by Whit­sun­day Mar­tial Arts and Air­lie Fit­ness and will in­volve an in­ten­sive 12-week pro­gram where its par­tic­i­pants will train, think and eat like a fighter. Whit­sun­day Mar­tial Arts (WMA) coaches Dan Zealand and An­ton Zafir will run the pro­gram, which kicks off this Mon­day af­ter­noon.

“It’s some­thing that hasn’t been done in the Whit­sun­days be­fore and it gives peo­ple from dif­fer­ent back­grounds an op­por­tu­nity to try some­thing com­pletely dif­fer­ent,” he said.

“All of the par­tic­i­pants will be guided through a strict train­ing pro­gram and diet and we will work with the staff from Air­lie Fit­ness to tai­lor work­outs and mea­sure their progress through­out the 12 weeks.”

Zafir said that fin­ish­ing the pro­gram with a fight at Air­lie Fight Night will al­low fam­ily and friends to wit­ness the pos­i­tive changes they have made to their life­styles. Dur­ing train­ing par­tic­i­pants will learn the ba­sic skills of boxing or mixed mar­tial arts by train­ing at WMA and will also be un­der the guid­ance of Air­lie Fit­ness train­ers for weekly strength and conditioning classes where they will get fit­ter, faster and stronger.
