Boxing Fitness Eliminates Excuses In Sykesville, MD

For those who don’t already know, I am the owner of Shaddock MMA Fitness in Sykesville, MD.  We have the best boxing fitness program in Carroll County Maryland.
Even though this is the case, as an owner I did notice that people have been hesitating to move forward and join my gym.  I have gone out of my way to design memberships that will overcome any obstacle that could keep someone from joining.  If you are considering joining but have concerns read on.

TOO MUCH MONEY Money is usually the biggest obstacle that people come up with for the reason they can’t join.  We have added new memberships that will fit everyone’s budget.  Our most economical membership cost as little at $1.20 per day.

I DON’T WANT TO COMMIT TO A YEAR OR TWO- Most people are upset about doing long term commitments at fitness centers.  A lot of times they commit for a short time and then  get billed even though they no longer use the gym.  At Shaddock MMA the longest commitment is 3 months. 

COMPETITION- In the area you will not find a more experienced boxing fitness instructor than myself. I was a two time VT State Golden Gloves finalist and the New England Diamond Belt boxing champion.   I have been teaching boxing fitness for 30 years.  As a USA certified boxing coach I have trained and cornered many boxing and MMA fighters.  I was involved in the fitness industry for most of my life.  I am an NAHF certified personal trainer.

What To Look For In A Boxing Fitness Gym In Sykesville Maryland

The Money crashers blog stated that the 5 benefits of a boxing fitness class are

  1. Enhanced Cardiovascular Health
  2. Improved Total-Body Strength
  3. Better Hand-Eye Coordination
  4.  Decreased Stress
  5. Improved Body Composition

Well Shaddock MMA Fitness does focus on all of these and I will show you how.

Enhanced Cardiovascular Health- All of the classes at Shaddock MMA Fitness focus on cardiovascular health.  We have a variety of classes to get your heart pumping.  We have FITBOX, IRONBOX, GIRLBOX AND GRAPPLEBOX, each is a great cardio workout.

Improved Total-Body Strength- Our Fitbox and Girlbox classes build body strength through exercises like push ups and sit ups.  GrappleBox uses functional exercises that relate to grappling to build strength.  IronBox uses traditional and non- traditional weight exercises to build muscle and strength.

Better Hand-Eye Coordination- This is probably the biggest area that separates Shaddock MMA from the competition.  While shadow boxing and heavy bag training can help with hand-eye coordination, there is no substitute for the light bags.  At Shaddock MMA Fitness we not only have a variety of different heavy bags, but we have speed bags, double end bags and slipping bags which focus on hand eye coordination.

Decreased Stress- Working out in general will reduce your stress level, but nothing will get rid of your stress like punching out a heavy bag.

Improved Body Composition- Although people say they want to lose weight, ideally they want an improved body composition.  What that means is low fat and increased toned muscle.  All of the classes at Shaddock MMA Fitness will achieve that.

Shaddock MMA Fitness although small has been around since 2008.  To understand it’s longevity is to understand the owner.

Coach Shaddock began his boxing career in 1984 boxing in Golden Gloves competitions in New England.  At age 19 John began his career in the health club business working with his brothers.   When his oldest brother, one of the owners, couldn’t teach his boxercise class, John subbed in.

Over the years John had set his own path in the fitness business working in Vermont, North Carolina and eventually Maryland.  Taking the basics of boxercise and adding his own spin Shaddock developed Fitbox and taught it in Ric Flair’s Golds gym and Brick Bodies.  Being a NAHF certified trainer and Vermont State bodybuilding finalist, John took his weight training experience and developed IronBox circuit training class.

Coach Shaddock wanted to develop boxing class that included his grappling experience. As a freshman in high school he took 3rd in the NY State private school wrestling championships.  At an older age he received his purple belt in Gaijin Ryu jiujitsu, and won the Battle of Baltimore and Maryland Open grappling championships.  So for conditioning his most recent creation is GrappleBox.
