SUCCESS STORY: ALEX T.
“I’ve been training with The Arena for five years now. I started here as amateur. Worked my way up to the pros. Every fight camp has really been the same. It’s a lot of hard work, grinding, making sure everything is perfect for me. Weight, strength conditioning, technique. Most of my amateur fights were six guys on one card at a time. So we’re all there together, which makes camps a lot easier to deal with mentally because you’re not the only one that’s hurting or the only one working really hard.”
SUCCESS STORY: DEWAYNE B.
“I’m an IBO international, intercontinental Boxing champion and this is my second training camp here. Coach Joe Vargas is my head coach. Joe is a great guy. He’s more than just a trainer. He’s more like a brother. Your father might sugar coat something for you, but your brother will shoot it straight to you. So he pushes man, and that’s what counts. And there’s Coach Basheer, he has his set of guys. Every coach has his set of guys. But everybody works together. That’s one thing that’s a beauty about training here.”

To achieve what others can’t you must be willing to do what other won’t. Not too many people embody this principle like Women’s MMA pioneer Liz Carmouche. Here you see just one of the many ways she seeks to make herself uncomfortable in fight preparation
The devil is in the details. There is a huge difference between a pad holder and a coach. Anyone can make you tired or teach you a pattern, but can you replicate it under pressure against a resisting opponent? Everyone knows the same tools and
