The Money crashers blog stated that the 5 benefits of a boxing fitness class are
Enhanced Cardiovascular Health
Improved Total-Body Strength
Better Hand-Eye Coordination
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.
There have been a lot of boxing gyms popping up in Maryland lately. When choosing one you want to choose carefully. First off, experience will help. Now we know most people aren’t planning on stepping through the ropes anytime soon, but doesn’t it make sense to learn the correct form when learning to box. Not only do you want to learn from someone who has boxed but also someone who has coached fighters. The last thing you want is someone who has some fitness experience. You will get all of these at Shaddock MMA Fitness.
In 1987 John “Bones” Shaddock a Golden Gloves boxer was working at a health club in Vermont. He had been asked by his older brother Chris to help out teaching his brothers Boxercise class. Shaddock, a New England Diamond Belt Boxing Champion eventually left his brother’s gym in Vermont and taught at multiple gyms up and down the East coast. John didn’t only have boxing experience but worked as a trainer being certified in fitness training and plyometrics through N.A.H.F. Coach Shaddock has worked with amateur and professional boxers and MMA fighters helping them get ready for fights and even working their corners.
In 2008 John opened Shaddock MMA Fitness and began teaching Fitbox. As the school grew he added Girlbox (womens only), IronBox (boxing and circuit training) , and GrappleBox (boxing and submission wrestling). These are unique classes that you won’t find anywhere else. They are always changing and evolving so the customer gets the best results.

I get phone calls and emails daily about people wanting to reach their goals. They want to lose weight, bulk up, and get fit. Unfortunately a small percentage follow through. At Shaddock MMA Fitness our goal is to get the Sykesville/Eldersburg area fit one person at a time. In almost 10 years of business I think we have gotten quite a few people fit, but there are still a lot more people I am hoping to reach.

I was in the health club business for close to 20 years, and there are a lot of things I always said I would change if I ever got my own gym. After close to 10 years of owning my own martial arts and fitness business I am finally at a point where I can change them for the better. When you join Shaddock MMA Fitness now you will notice some changes not offered by other gyms.
NO LONG TERM CONTRACTS- One of the things that I felt was bad for the customer, was the long term contracts for customers, especially for the ones who end up dropping off. At Shaddock MMA Fitness all of our memberships are short term. We have nothing longer than 3 months at a time. I feel it’s my responsibility to keep you as a member.
PAY FOR WHAT YOU USE- At most health clubs whether your in the club everyday or in the club once per week you pay the same amount of money. That doesn’t seem fair. At Shaddock MMA Fitness we have memberships for one day per week, two days per week or unlimited use memberships. We give you the flexibility to use the gym as much or as little you want. This is the way it should be, and the way it is at my gym.
ORIGINAL CLASSES YOU WON’T FIND ANYWHERE ELSE- With classes like Fitbox, IronBox, GirlBox and GrappleBox it makes us the most unique gym in the area. I change the classes periodically to keep the customer from getting bored with their workout.
So to get started all you need to do is go to shaddockmma.com and fill out the contact form. After you fill out the form I will contact you to set up a time for a FREE 30 minute training session to orient you on the equipment.
No matter what you do in life, trying something for the first time is scary. Meeting new people and doing a new activity is very frightening. It’s because of this reason that we have created the FREE 30 minute session. I want to make it as easy and comfortable for you to come try the gym. During your session I basically walk you through a class. We go over footwork, how to throw a punch, and how to hit the bags. This way when you come to class you will feel at ease that you know the basics.
When you do come to class, I recommend doing half of the time that the other students are doing. You should compete with yourself and not anyone else. When you come in to our class you will find they are everyday people. We have some heavy people trying to lose weight, some skinny people trying to gain muscle, and some people who are just trying to work on their cardiovascular endurance.
The hardest thing about doing my class you will find is just taking that first step. Go to my website shaddockmma.com, click on the contact button, scroll down to the contact form and fill it out. Then I will call, set an appointment and you actually need to show up. I promise you, you will be glad you did. So come on and take the plunge. I hope to see you in the gym.
In the past motivation was never a problem. I was always training for an event or had a goal. From making the football team, to winning the states at wrestling, to winning the Golden Gloves championships. There was always something to shoot for, so to get up and run and lift was no problem at all.
As we get older the goals change, they are not quite as sexy. “I want to lose weight”, “I want to lower my cholesterol”, Basically “I don’t want to die”. Well goals like this are important but they aren’t measurable, there seems to be no end game and so it’s just hard to get pumped up for in the morning. All of us, especially former athletes need that push.
One of the best ways to make it easier to get started is to get a workout partner. Someone to push you and make you work harder. Someone to get you up even when you don’t want to someone to push you. I went out and got myself a workout partner Mac. Mac is my Australian cattle dog. Mac wakes me up in the morning to run, and take him on multiple walks/runs throughout the day. Mac is the perfect training partner as he doesn’t care if it’s raining, or what he will get me to run with him anyhow.
If you don’t want to get a dog you can get a friend to train with you, keep you honest. The key is you want to make sure your friend has the same work ethic as you. The other way to go is to get yourself a trainer. I will not only train you but will keep in contact and motivate you to come in even when you don’t want to. If you are interested in training with me, or joining my gym with a friend go to shaddockmma.com and fill out the contact form. I will give you a FREE 30 minute session with me.
