Tito Ortiz Tries Out ‘Fitness MMA’ – Sweat Inc., Season 1


Welcome to Fitness MMA, guys. It is a high-intensity
30-minute workout with one-minute rest
in between intervals. We’ll do all the same workouts
that MMA fighters do, but you’ll never get hit,
so it’s safer. From a business model
standpoint, what size class? Where are you going to make
your money from? We’re doing these classes
five times a day. We have about 80 students
in just one gym, and they’re paying $45
per month. – $45–
– Really,
really cheap for that. Yeah, it’s very–
Right now, we have it
very inexpensive. Do you have this trademarked? Uh, no because
we’re the only ones doing it. I know there are other
similar inspiration-type
of classes, um, MMA TRX program. You say you’re the only guys
doing this, you know. – What do you mean?
– We’re the only gym
that is doing it. Uh, our structured class– I guess it depends on what
you’re calling this. That’s where you’re losing me. I want to see innovation. I like the idea, but, like, how are you doing it
differently? So, you can use karate, taekwondo,
jiu jitsu, wrestling, and that’s where you get
the MMA part. It’s a high impact workout
working with medicine balls, working on heavy bags. It’s functional training because you’re using
every muscle in the body. We’re going to start out
with our warm-up. We’re going to do bag jumps
with sprawls. So, from here,
we sprawl out, back and forth. Over the bag, sprawl out,
drive your hips in. Obi:
This ain’t no warm-up. The purpose of the warm-up
is to raise heart rate and to prep the muscles
for strenuous exercise. Starting with the move
that Adrian is doing can shock the system
and result in a muscle tear. We’re going to mount the bag,
and we’re going to start with our elbows. So, it’s boom, boom, boom. It’s fast. Randy:
And you’re just doing this
for 30 seconds, huh? Adrian:
Yeah, 30, well… You provide instruction,
like, “Put your hand here. You drop your core there.”
You gotta, like– Where’s the cuing?
We need your cuing. Yes. Normally, I wouldn’t be
on a bag. Normally, I would be
walking through the class. Well, like Erin’s all over
the frickin’ place right now. Instruct me. People pay for classes
to learn proper form, and the reason for that
is so you don’t get hurt. Whenever I design a program,
a workout, I always make sure that I instruct which muscles should be engaging
at what point during the entire exercise. It’s critical. Now, we’re up,
back on our feet. Build the cardio up. Look,
I’ve done this stuff before. Obviously, Tito has, but this
requires instructions. It can’t just be, “Here we are. Figure it out.
Hit the bag with your elbow.” How are you going
to teach this workout to other instructors if you can’t even
teach it to us? You’re unprepared.
