CardioMMA™ Instructor

Mike DeMora, the creator of CardioMMA™, is always looking for ways to get people interested in physical fitness. He has always wanted to combine his knowledge of holistic health and his life-long study of the martial arts — his reason for inventing CardioMMA™. This course is a combination of the fighting arts of boxing, kickboxing, wrestling and jui-jitsu, all choreographed to high energy and motivating music in a group setting. It’s the ultimate cardiovascular challenge. CardioMMA™ is the only class that combines a unique blend of mixed martial arts training and functional strength training in a group fitness class. CardioMMA™ requires no previous martial arts experience. We like to think that the realistic teaching of CardioMMA™ will make your class will think you’re a professional MMA fighter.

From there, we will teach you correct form and technique so you’ll be able to help your students get more out of each workout.
