    Gonna try my hand in some MMA training depending on price.

    I feel like I've accomplished what I wanted in power lifting and now want a new challenge. Emailed these guys: http://www.roninathletics.com/ to schedule a free one-on-one and go from there. I wonder how much it costs per month. :noes:

    meh. i feel like the ufc gyms will be more for people to jump on the mma bandwagon and to get in shape the fun way. "train like a fighter without the fight!"

    I have no problem with that. I check my ego at the door of the gym and especially at places like this. I'm not a fighter, I'm a power lifter and hockey player. I've accomplished what I've wanted to in power lifting (600 dead, 500 squat, and an almost 400 bench) all raw, so now I want to try something different.

    Hoboken, which is right outside the city (5 minute subway ride). I work in the city every day so its much easier for me to get around the city than it is Jersey as I don't own a car.

    This is the place I should be looking into? This is a 10 minute walk from my work.
