How I Fell In Love With Muay Thai (And You Can Too!)

When I was younger, I lacked a lot of drive and focus. There wasn’t really anything out there that I was passionate about. I would pick up certain hobbies and drop them out of sheer boredom. I just couldn’t seem to find that something that I loved that drove me to be the best I could be in that area. Until I found Sitan Gym Arizona. I remember it like it was yesterday…my older sister had been going for a little while and each and every night came home drenched in sweat with an odd yet crazy happy smile on her face. “You need to come with me!” she would always say. And after...

“What Doesn’t Kill You, Makes You Stronger!”

Being knocked to the ground and getting back up on your feet is one of the hardest things to do. It’s dejecting. It’s demoralizing. It feels pointless. And yet you know it’s what needs to be done. I saw this countless times last weekend when I went to Lion Fight 22 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Watching all these fights that night, I noticed that no matter the skill level (the fights ranged from amateur to pro), several of the fighters had one thing in common. Heart. Determination. And the sheer will to not give up no matter how many times they were LITERALLY knocked to the ground. They knew they...

How I Beat The Workout Woes (And You Can Too!)

What are the reasons you have for not working out? “I don’t have enough time during the day to work out; I’m just too busy.” Been there. “I can’t afford a membership to join a gym.” Done that. “I’m already too overweight and I really don’t have the motivation.” Oh have I been there. These have been my reasons in the past and maybe they are your reasons too. As a mom of two I had to really dig deep to find the motivation to workout and lose the baby weight both times. And yet even though I was dying to get rid of the flab around my waist, the jiggle under my arms, and the chub rub between my...

A”rousey”ing Victory!

Two fighters. One title. Fastest submission in UFC history. Do I have you hooked yet? Well unless you’ve been living under a rock, you most likely have heard about the record shattering defeat Ronda Rousey had over Cat Zingano this past weekend during UFC 184. People from all over the world were waiting (not so patiently I might add) for THE fight of the night and it’s safe to say they were not disappointed. Rousey ended the fight only 14 seconds into the first round with her signature arm bar, setting a new record and making UFC history. It left not only the crowd, but also her opponent...
