MMA Workouts are Not Just for Men

Posted Apr 22 2010 12:00am

The following guest post was contributed by Alexia Krause, a PR executive who is writing today about MMA Workouts for women.

Mixed martial arts appears to be a male dominated sport, yet the number of women who are becoming part of the MMA community is continually growing.

There are many female MMA fighters (including Kaitlyn Young and Gina Carano), who follow the same rigorous regimens as their male counterparts. These inspiring ladies have broken open the doors to what used to be the “boy’s club” of MMA. They use the same techniques, MMA equipment , and exercises that most fighters would use.

MMA training has the ability to help women stay fit while participating in a competitive and exhilarating sport.


A MMA workout may sound intimidating. However, with the right frame of mind, guys and girls alike can use it to their advantage.

The training of a fighter is a daily endeavor and requires more dedication than a couple visits to the gym each week. Additionally, whether you are a beginner to regular exercise, or supplementing an existing, more advanced routine, these exercises certainly pack a noticeable punch.

On a more serious note, it’s a known fact that men are generally bigger than women by nature and therefore, women are prone to planned attacks from men because they can be considered an easier target. However, with the proper self-defense tactics, you can help even-out the fight. For this reason, a lot of women seek out self-defense classes.

Additionally, MMA exercise routines often include simulated fight training to teach proper self-defense techniques that will be utilized during a match. Therefore, anyone looking for self-defense classes, or an intense exercise routine, or both, might want to check out MMA training.

MMA Training is a great conditioning tool for both men and women, and should be considered for any ladies who are looking to get into better shape, take out some aggression, or to learn how to defend themselves.
