I don’t think many of you have heard about Jake Bonacci. Jake is probably one of the top strength and conditioning coaches in the world for mma. He has His Bachelor degree in Excercise Science from the University of Wisconsin-Superior. He came to us in the summer of 2007 shortly before Randy faught Gabriel Gonzaga. He did his internship with us before returning to Duluth, Minnesota where he completed his masters degree in Excercise Physiology at the College of St. Scholastica. Randy was so impressed training with Jake and his approach that he was offered a position on our staff.
Since Jake’s arrival our pro team as jumped at the opportuntiy to use him in fight preparation. He is in such demand that a fighters camp is can base there morning training completely around Jake. He has desigend his programs in such a unique way that it pushes our fighters to an entirely new level. Before I moved here a few months ago I had been doing my conditioning on my own. I knew more about the science and design of a program than anyone at my gym, but that wasn’t saying much. I was so excited when my wife and I finally moved out here because not only was I going to have the best mma training but also the best conditioning. I watched the workouts until my camp started. I will have to admit looking at them from the sideline, I thought man I can handle that. Jake got quite a laugh my first session with him during my camp. We didn’t even go full board the first week and I puked twice. As the weeks went by we picked up the pace and I’m telling you I could really feel it in practice. The pace I was able to push in my fight virtually wore down my opponent in the first round. I was just so amazed at the level Jake had taken me in the few short weeks we were in camp, that I immediately was wroking with him on scheduling my program for my next fight.
Jake’s popularity among mma fighters is fast growing and bringing more and more top level fighters into our gym. Many guys our now moving their entire training camp to our facilities to work with the best. Not only does Jake work with mma fighters he has now been working with other professional athletes in and out of competition.
