Great Experiences at My Weekend Certification Course

Last weekend I conducted the first Burn with Kearns MMA Core Conditioning Certification. People from all over the country came to the course which was held at Nexus Martial Arts in Wareham, MA (30 minutes from the Providence Airport). It was a blast working with this diverse group of talented people. They were always eager to learn more.

The course kicked off on Friday with a lecture, which was followed by a group dinner. Saturday was all about strength and explosive power. For the second session on Saturday we took advantage of the refreshing Cape Cod weather and worked a lot of concepts outside. Sunday we focused on "Gas in the Tank" and partner drills. I also had one of my pro MMA fighter clients, Greg Rebello come by. I went through a workout session with him and answered questions during the process. I can't wait till the next core conditioning certification weekend in November.
