Elite MMA Strength and Conditioning: Expert Guest Brandon Shuey

This week we’re in Boise Idaho, highlighting another elite gym.  Hardcore Fitness Training Center is a fully equipped functional fitness facility.  The team here is big on group training for functional strength and conditioning with a special focus on core strength.  They also provide personal training for any goal, and Olympic Weightlifting classes; but the roots of this Hardcore gym are firmly planted in the world of MMA.  Owner Brandon Shuey says that’s what sets his facility apart from the rest.  “Even though we’re a true sports performance gym, you won’t find a bunch of arrogant meat heads here.  We promote a traditional martial arts atmosphere of respect and humility.  So everyone is welcome.  It doesn’t matter if you want to be a professional mixed martial artist (we do have a full team of active fighters), train for a high school sport, or just drop some extra pounds before your high school reunion.  We’re here to help.”
