That time again… The 10 week cycle of The Factory ends in a fitness test. Designed to test all areas of your training and body and to gauge how much you have progressed from the endurance, strength, power and mobility sessions in the preceding 9 weeks. You only battle yourself and your previous scores. All the test are replicable so the change in performance is solely down to you and your effort. Good luck.
KAYO MMA will be putting on another show at the Watford Colosseum Sunday 29th April.
These shows are always really well organised, with lots of local fighters from Team Crossface, Team Icon, Gintas Combat and Team Mayhem, making it a good night out. There are a group of us going, tickets £25, meeting in The Horns Beer Garden beforehand. If you would like to join the Pain Factory party let me know and bring cash by next Monday and I will get a bunch of tickets.
How the Monkeys describe themselves on their website:
‘Monkey Nutrition aims to bring a range of supreme quality sports nutrition products to a market that consists of brands lacking in excitement and which often simply don’t make the grade. Our entire range is engineered in the USA for the next generation of athletes, who will compromise on absolutely nothing when it comes to attaining the perfect physique.’
Congratulations to the Factory guys for getting their Streetwise Kickboxing Black Belts… and their tops off (shock).
At least Rose accepted hers with a little more dignity!
Well done for all the extra hard work put in over the last few months.
Just realised that there is no photographic evidence that anything goes on at the Factory, so here is a little selection. More to follow when I have a break from shouting to take a few more.
Merry Christmas one and all. The Factory has closed for the holidays and will reopen Monday 9th January 2012 @ 7:15pm.
Have a lovely break and get ready for a full on New Year.
We all know you guys work hard in the sessions, and here’s the proof. Below are the average scores from a Fitness Test at the Factory and again at the next test 6 weeks later (we have a Fitness Test every 6 weeks that hits the whole body and major movements that last for 15 minutes, you have to have some endurance just to get through it).
Remember this is just the average of 10 individual scores, some of you are hitting much bigger improvements.
Keep working hard, and you will keep improving until you are a smooth running human machine!

Apologies if you really wanted a Red and White one, but the people spoke and you didn’t kick enough nuts to get your own way. Next time I’ll make sure there’s some red on it.
