Have you watched MMA on TV and thought to yourself, how do people do that? It seems unbelievably brave to step into a cage and be so empowered, so sure of yourself, so secure about your ability to not only defend yourself but also to thrive in that situation. Wimp 2 Warrior aims to bring you that once-in-a-lifetime experience!
We're sure you have questions about safety, so read on to know more about how we ensure you stay safe and healthy all the way through the program.
We've got just a teensy bit of experience doing this ;) We've run the program across 7 countries and 35 cities in 45 locations for hundreds of participants and now, it's in your local gym.
This program has been designed with competitor safety at the forefront. It’s created to strengthen your body, and while there are lots of basic technical movements to learn, you will slowly progress to higher stages of training as you get stronger in order to minimize any injuries. We run a very strict ruleset that is passed down internationally. Our competitors compete in 8oz gloves, which are bigger and more padded than what you see on TV.
Ultimately, this is a contact, combat sport, and bumps and bruises will happen.
Rest assured you won't be thrown into the series Finale without the appropriate training. Our program is carefully built to ensure your fitness, skills, and mental strength are all developed properly before any live drills are introduced. Sparring and grappling commence at a light intensity and build naturally over the duration of the program. So while you’ll at times feel nervous and tested, the contact is also something you’ll feel ready and eager to do.
Our referees are heavily briefed to ensure all of our competitors are kept very safe during the Finale. With competitor safety at the forefront of all of our programs, if the coaches feel a competitor is not ready either physically or mentally, they will not put you forward to compete in the Finale.
About 95 percent of people who do this series end up competing in the Finale. You have to have the mindset that at the end of 20 weeks, you will be stepping into a cage and competing against someone else in the series. The Finale isn't about fighting so much as a celebration of the fittest, strongest person you have ever been.
Sign up today for our Tryouts. The Tryouts are nothing more than a good workout which is FREE! It's a chance for the coaches to meet those that have applied and put a face to the name to ensure they have a great bunch of humans to take on the journey. All they're looking for on the day is heart, and provided you go along, there’s every chance you will be selected to participate in the program.3 months ago
