Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Thank you for all your support during this past year.

It is hard to believe, but this is our last blog until 2017.

It has been an exciting year with so many developments.

Our martial arts based fitness programs, one-on-one training, group training and online training programs are growing every day.

In addition, we are rolling out a brand new Nutrition Plan adeptly titled Knockout Nutrition Plan which is available at fightingiseasy.storenvy.com.

We foresee this program as one of the biggest ways we can help anyone struggling with nutrition or weight related issues.

We are super excited for the program’s release and just in time for Christmas.

So, this Christmas, treat yourself to this gift of good health.

Or this could be the perfect gift for a friend or family member struggling with nutrition related issues.

Life is Hard. Fighting is Easy. has big things in store for 2017.

It is part of our mission to use martial arts to increase people’s health and quality of life and we plan to do just that.

So, let’s end 2016 with a bang and kickoff 2017 strong!

Be the best version of Yourself

Do you remember the best version of yourself?

Maybe it was in high school when you were a sports superstar.

Or maybe you were at your best when you were into running or into martial arts.

You know you want to keep doing that thing that makes you feel great.

Then, life gets in the way. You were going to get back to it, but there is work, family, injuries, no time…the list goes on.

Well, I have some fantastic news.

You can get back to that healthy you again.

You can be that fit, lively, energetic, person were back then.

You may just need a little help getting there.

Well, it is a good thing that you know a guy.

That guy just so happens to be a phone call or email away.

If you haven’t guessed, we are talking about our Life is Hard. Fighting is Easy. Personal training plans.

Our customized Personal Training, Online Training and Brand New Nutrition Plan are just what you need to get on track.

Stay tuned as we will be rolling out our Nutrition Plan soon.

Not interested, that’s OK. Maybe there is someone you know that could benefit.

Until next time.
