“My training lacked was consistency. I was a regularly going to the gym but had very little direction on what I wanted to accomplish or why I was going, other than attempting to keep ‘in shape’’.
The danger with training without direction is that your training plateaus, you become demotivated and ultimately stop training. The innovative and progressive training given by the instructors at CDMA have enabled me to avoid these pitfalls and enjoy the training week-to-week, month-to-month and year-to-year.
At CMDA, more than anywhere else I have trained, there is always been one eye that is kept on progression. The persistence in training, ability to overcome obstacles and having an adaptable approach to my training and learning, have been competencies which I have transposed over into both my personal and business life. These have proven to be valuable lessons and are evidence that the rewards gained through training have gone beyond my initial expectations.
I like to understand what I do and why I do it and as such I like to ask questions. I like to train with people who feel the same way. Whenever I have asked questions of the CDMA team they have always provided an informed answer. There is a reason to the training other than just working hard and I have not seen this understanding in other organisations.
“Some of the struggles I faced before I came to CDMA were a complete lack of motivation and drive”.
I contacted CDMA because I fancied a change up in my training routine and to try some new experiences in the form of martial arts.
The results I've gained since training at CDMA are not only improved physical fitness but also better mental well being. In the past year or so I've taken a lot away from training at CDMA and am thoroughly grateful for it as well.
Three tips that I have that helped me reach my goals are keep training, keep training and keep training regardless of how your day/week has gone. Progress is progress.
The things for me that separate CDMA from other gyms I've been involved with is the support from all the coaching team, they are all very friendly and focused on helping you improve. There are no egos involved which help you progress quicker and completely removes any fear of training at a dojo.
