Almost 20 years ago when I was working at Gold’s Gym in Charlotte North Carolina I remember having a conversation with the manager. The manager I was speaking with was a former college football player. Gerald had a body builders build, this guy was jacked. I was surprised when he told me about when he was thinking of joining a gym, but waited in the parking lot for over an hour before he set foot in the gym. This guy was actually scared to go in the gym. He was afraid of what others would think about him. Then I thought, wow, what does the average person think when they come into a gym, who has never worked out before? We take all of that into consideration at Shaddock MMA Fitness. When you come in we try and make you feel at home.
Although the name may seem intimidating, Shaddock Mixed Martial Arts, I assure you the classes are not. You will get a great workout, but we encourage you to compete with yourself at your own pace. You will notice we have people in their 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s all working out together in the same class. The other day I signed up a woman in her 70s. The beauty of the design of the classes is they are set up so all levels can workout at the same time. If you want a real “no judgment zone”, then come into our gym and try it out. We have a great promotion going on right now for April Fools where you could win 3 personal training half hours by just registering on shaddockmma.com (put Facebook contest in the comments). If you don’t win you will still receive one 30 minute session. Give it a shot, all you have to lose is some unwanted pounds.
Keep your hands up,
John “Bones” Shaddock
