Professional Mixed Martial Arts Training Comes to Flagstaff
Flagstaff now has a professional Mixed Martial Arts facility to train in! With Coaches Certified by American Top Team, AZ Elite is Flagstaff's #1 Source for MMA.
By: Luke Johnson
If you have ever considered taking a professional mixed martial arts class but could not find one with a logical, progressive and well organized curriculum..... Your search is over!! American Top Team now has 2 certified coaches in Flagstaff, AZ. Having completed the difficult certification, Tim Hillis and his son Caleb Hillis are now teaching the exciting, champion making American Top Team program to ages 8-up in age appropriate classes several times a week!! Located at 1926 N. 4th Street in the Pine Grove Shopping Center, you will find a large 4,300 square foot facility with separate training areas for fitness, stand up and grappling training. Tim has 15 years of professional mixed martial arts training, having started with Frank Shamrock and Maurice Smith in 1996! What truly separates this gym from any other is the ability to teach from ONLY the most successful techniques, combinations and transitions thanks to the American Top Team curriculum. MMA has truly evolved into one of the most elite athletic sports to date. AZ Elite has the facility, ability, experience, knowledge, and now best curriculum to build anyone into a lean, mean fighting machine.
To top this off, Tim is well versed in fitness and nutritional science to help you make your weight goals. So MMA is not just for those wishing to be the next Title Holder in the UFC. It is also for moms, dads and their children wishing to get into fantastic shape without doing the same old workout day in, day out, week in, week out, month after month, year after year and see minimal results. You see, the cardio and strength aspects of a contact sport will burn more calories in one hour twice a week, than typical gym based workouts do in an hour or more daily!! The synergistic affect of training cardio by shadow boxing, then hitting a pad or bag, followed by working footwork and the "clinch", rounded out by Jiu Jitsu and calisthenics will cause every fiber of your being to increase it's metabolic rate - therefore you will burn calories for hours beyond your workouts!
So don't be shy, you know it sounds like a great time and the science backs it as an effective workout. Now, shake off those fears of physical contact, because sparring is optional and even then safety gear is required!
