It's Time!

Welcome to blog number 2....
So it's that time again, on a Saturday morning where we put the guys through their paces in Fight Fit Conditioning.  Yeah sure I may hear some yells of pain and exhaustion but we all know it's worth it in the end!

As we approach the end of our second week we have had many enquiries and have a small, close knit community of members.  From here we can only grow and hope to do so by offering our members a personalised and unique service all whilst helping them work hard to achieve their health and fitness goals. 

If you're sick of your mundane, day in day out style of exercise, are looking to meet new people and have some fun whilst moudling your body into that sexy, lean figure you've always dreamed about, you should check out what we offer!!  ( Our Mixed Martial Arts classes are great for a change all whilst learning a new skill! AND...not only is it awesome to be able to tell people you know how to do what they do in the UFC, you can use it as self defence and it's even great for party tricks!

This week has gone so quickly and let me tell you it has been a tough one!  The onoging issue with our phone and internet (yeah, probably wouldn't recommend Optus to anybody out there) has proven to be a difficult hurdle to overcome.  I think we have finally gotten there in the end BUT not without hassle.  Our phone number is no longer the number printed on our signage and marketing (so if you know anybody out there who is trying to call it....please apologise!) and so now we commence the long battle with Optus to reimburse us for the cost of changing it.
Our Eftpos terminal has also been inoperable for the last 3 days (still is), which has been, how should I put it....a minor inconvenience (yes I am being sarcastic, it has been more than minor!).

But in light of all this, we still have the foundations to offer our clients the great workout they came for.
I would like to apologise for the inconvenience of the phone and eftpos to anyone who has experienced not being able to get through OR pay with their credit card.  Our new phone number will be posted soon, but this time we are going to check with Optus numerous times before we go ahead and put it out to the world!  Eftpos.....well it's supposed to be fixed on Monday....but lets just wait and see what Monday brings!

Until then, happy workouts, tasty nutritional eating and a sexy YOU!!

Don't forget to follow us on Facebook ( or twitter (PhoenixeliteMMA).

Hopefully we'll see you soon!!

Phoenix Elite - Officially Open!

Hey hey,

Yep you heard right.....Phoenix Elite MMA & Conditioning is now officially open for you to come down and train your heart out! We've come up with some great classes and have some great coaches to take you through your paces all while learning great technique AND developing your skills.  Ross MacLeod, our director and also coach to many of the classes at the moment including Boxing, MMA and Fight Fit Conditioning.  We have the young star Jesse Booth taking our Muay Thai Kickboxing classes, Phil, a purple belt, kicking butts in his BJJ (Brazillian Jiu Jitsu) class and Paul, supervising our Open Mat classes on Saturdays.  Last but certainly not least, we have Damon Kelly, yep that's right, the Commonwealth Gold medalist and currently ranked 9th in the world for Weightlifitng, taking our awesome Power Lifting classes.
With the timetable set to expand as of next week and continue to grow from there, there is plently of variety to get you out of bed on those cold mornings and to motivate you after that hard day of work!

Our timetable visions include, yoga with top quality instructors who have travelled the world to learn the art, a flexibility and conditioning class taken by our very own Laura Bamford who has trained in the arts of Ballet, Tap and Jazz (along with all sorts in between) for 15 years, only to be accompanied by unique classes that are only heard of in the UK and USA and this is just to name a few!
If you're not impressed yet, we also have all of your traditional training equipment, leg press, lat pulldown, dumbells, treadmills, spin bikes and rowers and that's not even the whole list!  And of course we couldn't get any old equipment, only the best Hammer Strength equipment will do! (Gym's sexy!) We have a full size MMA cage - think UFC & the much loved 'Ultimate Fighter' series & for all you MMA lovers, 90 sqm of grappling mats.  Boxers, no need to be disappointed....we have boxing bags, tear drop bags and all the necessities for an unbelievable boxing based workout. 
For the modern, fitness craze following, Crossfit and caveman training lovers, we've got Kettlebells, Tractor tyres and battle ropes at the very least!

So in short, we have something for EVERYONE, EVERY level, EVERY style!  Not to mention the luxuries, like our 'Healthly Breakfast Bar' to keep your nutrition in check and a membership option that includes a personal training session per week!

So tell your friends and tell your acquaintances and come down and have a look.  You can even try your first class for FREE!

We'd love to see you, we'd love to help you reach your fitness and nutrition goals, we'd love to help you learn new skills!!

Look forward to seeing you soon!

Yours in fitness

The Phoenix Elite Team!
