Charles at the Tristar Gym in Canada

I recently traveled to Canada and while I was there, I had a chance to visit the world famous MMA Tristar Gym. That’s where Georges St-Pierre trains, the UFC Middle Weight Champion of the MMA world. I found out, that is where many other MMA champions fighters now train.

Charles and Georges "Rush" St-Pierre at Tristar Gym

Tristar Gym puts out more MMA champions then possibly any other gym in the world. This gym had it all, atmosphere, great trainers, MMA Coaches, other great fighters to train with, and my favorite part was – this gym is a hard core, blood and sweat type of place. The gym took up the whole floor of an industrial building. Simply amazing.

Georges “Rush” St-Pierre (G.S.P.) was working out at the time when we arrived. After he finished his training session, GSP graciously spent a few minutes with us. He is a sincere focused champion and a well grounded person. It was great to meet someone like GSP to see that all that fame does not affect him. We also spent some time talking with a few other MMA fighters.  Everyone was great. We also found that all the fighters shared a strong desire to train hard but were truly friendly.

Here are some pictures that GPS was kind enough to allow us to take in his gym – enjoy.

Why is it important to do weight training, resistance training, and cardio exercise?

In the mixed martial arts world, the most important things to train are proper technique,  cardio vascular stamina, and muscular endurance.

You need to be able to go at least 15 minutes (three 5 minute rounds) of fighting or you are not going be much of a fighter.

You want your legs, back, arms, shoulders, abs (core area), etc, to be as strong as possible.

You want to be able to have that endurance so when your in the 2nd and 3rd round – you have the strength and speed to keep pressing on and not get gased out.

You want to be well rounded in all areas of the mixed martial arts game. Its going to make you a better fighter.

I have been in the industry for 25 years and can help take your fitness to a whole new level.
