Student Spotlight - Ivan

I would like you all to meet Ivan, a newer student at Absolute MMA. Ivan is 50 years old and has been with us for 6 weeks now. He has made some significant life changes in the last little bit and decided to add physical fitness to the list of positives in his life.
Ivan came to us drinking two liters of Dr. Pepper a day! He has since completely removed carbonated drinks from his diet and has started to clean up his diet. Ivan was not in good physical condition when he began his training with us. He could not finish the rounds of Jiu Jitsu without stopping for breaks or sitting out a round. Just yesterday he worked through all four, 5 minute rounds with 15 push ups and 15 sit ups during the break! He has also lost 13 pounds in the 6 weeks since becoming a member!
Ivan always has a positive attitude and an incredible work ethic. He trains four days a week, no matter what. We all know how hard it is to keep working when the soreness and pain of training tells us to quit. We are proud to have Ivan with us at Absolute MMA. He inspires us and motivates the students and staff to give everything we have to improving ourselves and each other.

Starting out right!

This is Deen. Deen is two and has been watching his brother Armano do Muay Thai and Jiu Jitsu in the kids class. Samir, the boys father, is waiting for Deen to be old enough to join the kids class but it looks like Deen doesn't want to wait. Our Head Coach and Owner at Absolute MMA, Rob Handley, takes a few minutes to work with an enthusiastic and hard working student. Looks like we've got a new champion in the making!
