Michigan Xtreme is proud to announce the addition of a training program for adults!! “ULTIMATE”
The ULTIMATE program level focuses on assisting those ex-wrestlers, adults (both men & woman) and MMA fighters who are looking to get in shape, return to the open, seniors & masters level of competitive wrestling and/or as well as the adult population of mixed martial arts students who would like to improve their wrestling technique and skills.
“No question. Every guy I talk to in MMA who didn’t wrestle growing up always says to me, ‘I wish I wrestled in high school,’ ” he said. “It really should be the base for every MMA fighter’s game. There’s a certain mentality with wrestling. You want to mentally and physically break your opponent.” ~ Chris Weidman (UFC Figther)
“I’d bet any guy in the UFC who didn’t wrestle wishes he did. It’s just one of those things that if you do it from an early age, that brutal mentality gets ingrained in you, to be relentless and apply constant pressure. Most guys who don’t have that background come to wrestlers for help.” ~ Chris Weidman (UFC Figther)

We will be starting a Olympic-Style 8-Week Session at the Grand Rapids location that will meet once a week on Tuesday’s from 7:30pm-9:00pm. It’s free to all MX Members and $65 for non-members or $10 per practice. Check the website for more details on this 8-Week extra training opportunity. Instruction will be by Eric Frandsen, FILA International Official/Coach.
Finally, we still have room for more wrestlers to join our Southwest Xtreme off-season training program as well as our Bronze, Silver and Gold programs in Grand Rapids. If you know a teammate that could benefit from the extra training before the season or you have a practice partner you’d like in the room, please invite them to sign up online through the website as well. “Iron Sharpens Iron” All rates for the off-season programs have been prorated and adjusted on the website for online sign ups!
