The MMA Conditioning Association now offers two payment options for its popular MMA fitness and conditioning training course and certification. Participants can make one payment or two as they pursue their passion for teaching MMA fitness and conditioning.

In a challenging economy, pursuing a new job, certification or training can be both expensive and time-consuming. In recognition of this as well as the growing global trend of mixed martial arts (MMA) fitness, the Mixed Martial Conditioning Association now offers two payment options for its Certified MMA Conditioning Coach training.

Designed to help martial arts coaches, personal trainers and fitness experts develop both top athletes and every-day fitness enthusiasts looking for a mixed martial arts challenge, the comprehensive online, self-paced training includes a single payment for $497, with a $30 savings, as well as two payments spread across 30 days to make the training more accessible for people on limited budgets.

The online Certified MMA Conditioning Coach program offered at focuses on combat drills, plyometrics, mental training, TRX, Kettlebells, aerobic and anaerobic conditioning, sports nutrition, flexibility as well as developing a successful MMA business. The certification, appropriate for coaches, trainers, martial artists and current MMA participants, includes video demonstrations and lectures, a digital manual, test prep and self-paced learning for those interested in developing the business and athletic skills required to coach MMA fitness.

“In creating these two payment options, we recognize both that people are on tight budgets and that mixed martial arts is hotter than ever, so this will give more people the opportunity to pursue their MMA coaching and training dreams,” said Dr. John Spencer Ellis, founder of the MMA Conditioning Association. “Since we say what we mean and mean what we say when it comes to offering high-quality MMA training, we also offer free training videos on our home page.”

On average, the Certified MMA Conditioning Coach program takes involves about 70 hours of education. The certification is valid for two years, and the program also includes continuing education resources.

The Mixed Martial Arts Conditioning Association was developed to bridge the gap between sports conditioning science, MMA training methods and direct application from the ring, octagon, mat or cage. The MMA Conditioning Association is the MMA certification division of the National Exercise & Sports Trainers Association (NESTA), a leader in innovative solutions for fitness, nutrition and wellness professionals, as well as club owners since 1992. Founded by John Spencer Ellis, NESTA now has more than 55,000 members in 55 countries, and it is one of the largest fitness associations in the world, and the fastest growing association of its kind in the United States. The MMACA and its staff of educators, exercise physiologists, dietitians, biomechanists, strength coaches, sports psychologists, physical therapists, massage therapists, kinesiologists and business professionals have joined with the world's top boxers, wrestlers, BJJ fighters, Muay Thai fighters, American kickboxers, MMA fighters and coaches to develop a comprehensive MMA conditioning program.
