It's easy to stop working out if you're not having fun. If you're looking for a new way to challenge your body, or just want to make your workouts more interesting than consider training like an athlete! You don't have to be under contract to reap the benefits of training like top competitive athletes. On episode 17 of All About Fitness I speak with Michael Piercy, a former professional baseball player who uses his knowledge of what it takes to compete as a pro to help his clients experience extraordinary results.
Michael Piercy is a NASM Certified Personal Trainer and Performance Enhancement Specialist (PES) as well as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) with the National Strength and Conditioning Association who owns the LAB Performance Training Center in West Caldwell, NJ. Michael is a Master Instructor for TRX and the developer of the RedZone Workout Program for Men's Health.
During our conversation today we talk about how pro athletes train and how training like a pro can help you reach your fitness goals; most importantly you'll learn how to make exercise more FUN again.

We discuss how Rob got started in professional fighting and how his approach to fitness and exercise has changed over the years. What is fascinating is that over the past twenty years MMA has evolved from an underground sport to a multi-billion dollar industry. The computer and tech industry evolved in San Jose, CA, finance and fashion were developed in New York City and the early days of MMA took place in Orange County, CA and Rob was there at the beginning.
Rob talks about meeting and training with Tito Ortiz in high school and how his participation in the sport has grown from being a fighter to running the program for UFC Gyms, a rapidly growing chain of health clubs based out of Southern California.
