PT's Before & After Camp.

Unlike some sports, there is no on or off season for fighters. They must be ready to prepare for a competition at a moments notice. But staying ready does not mean always staying on weight.
Fighters will often compete at a weight class that puts them below their natural body weight if they were not training.
When competing, a fighter needs time for optimal preparation of their skills, sharpness and fitness to perform on fight night. Aesthetics are not a consideration when training for functional ability in sports but physique can be a rough measure for conditioning.
For November's bout I had a two month camp which saw me go from 85kg to 76kg. Losing 9KG in eight weeks all while prioritising skills, technique & ability is a win in itself. If you can't make weight, you can't compete ! And in such a short space of time, it requires careful attention to detail, as too much too soon can cause issues with staying at weight until fight night. And this needs to be a healthy accomplishment or a fighter risks not passing their pre fight medical examination.

Healthy, timely weight management is just another skill that an experienced fighter learns through their time competing.

Seeing the results in the mirror and on the scales is even more rewarding when setting a SMART goal for my clients !
