Why Train At American Top Team Academy Coconut Creek, Florida?

August 25th, 2011

I see a lot of “new” gyms and MMA academies pop up all the time, and then sadly, are gone a few months later after they have taken your money! They advertise a “cheap” price to get you in the door and then leave you hanging. They have sub standard instructors who have no lineage or track record of proven results and quite frankly, they couldn’t care less if you progress or not. Seems MMA is the new ”hot” thing to do, so everyone is now an instant expert… without any prior knowledge or experience!

So this leads me back to my question,  ”Why Train At American Top Team Academy Coconut Creek, Florida”?
First off, we have been around since 2002 and are closing in on our 10th year anniversary in business!

Secondly, we have assembled a tremendous team of instructors who know their particular art inside and out. They are true experts in what they teach and love to share their knowledge with you!
Master Ricardo Liborio is a great example of this. He is not only extremely dedicated to teaching his students, but ensures this philosophy is shared by all the ATT instructors. Master Liborio is a World Champion in the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and the ONLY Martial Arts Coach/Instructor inducted into the Broward County Sports Hall of Fame.
And those are just a few of his qualifications! You can read more about our instructors, their accomplishments, and bio’s on our website – click HERE

Next, we offer more classes than any other academy around. What does that mean to you? It offers you a wide array of classes to fit your busy schedule! Currently we have over 70 classes for our adults and kids to train in!
That’s more than any other academy in South Florida!

Achieve Your Fitnes Goals This Summer! American Top Team Coconut Creek, Florida

June 21st, 2011

Here it is guys and gals,

Summer is upon us and like most people, we not only want to feel good but look great too!
How do we go about achieving this…. Here are a few examples to help you on your way.

Small changes in your lifestyle will add up and make a big impact.
If you’re downing 2-3 sodas a day, that quickly adds up to a pound a week.

That’s an extra 52 pounds a year! Not to mention the corn syrup i.e. sugar and what it does to your glucose levels!
Try water with a squeeze of lime/lemon. Plus, it’s a great way to stay hydrated in the summertime heat.

Make and Set realistic goals for yourself.
Too many times I see people set out on a very demanding exercise program because they have let themselves go. It took them years to get out of shape and it will take time to get back into it. Start out small and build on your program. You will more than likely avoid injuries and the constant set backs that come with training “all out” to make up for lost time.

Include a friend or family member.
It’s always easier when working out to gain inspiration from your training partner/friend.
If they are just as committed as you, chances are you will both stick with your program and achieve your goals.

Find what works for YOU!
Pretty simple, but often times we do what other people want to do for exercise.
Maybe biking is your thing and your friend enjoys the treadmill (which you find boring).
Again, see what you enjoy doing and stick with it. Even better, step out of your comfort zone and try something new. Maybe it’s a new fitness class, or an MMA class. Whatever you decide on, pick an activity that keeps your interest and is challenging to you.

Don’t Forget Reward Yourself!
Remember, if you enjoy doing something it will not feel like work. So if you eat or drink a little more than you planned, don’t despair, get right back after it the next day. Stay focused on what you want to achieve and chances are you will!

At American Top Team we have a wide variety of martial arts and fitness classes for all levels.
Please feel free call or stop by anytime if we can be of service to you.

All the best!

It’s Never Too Late – Dyah Ali Davis

May 3rd, 2011

Dyah Ali Davis is a story in perseverance. Coming from famous boxing genes, his father being Olympic Gold Medalist Howard Davis Jr. Arguably, the most gifted and decorated amateur boxer the United States has ever produced.

As a high school kid, Dyah was actively  played basketball but the pounds quickly added up once college life took over. Dyah showed no interest in following in his fathers footsteps. Howard Davis Jr. never pushed Dyah in the direction of boxing, and up until this point, Dyah could care less. He was 23, and ballooned up to 225 pounds. He described himself as being “one cupcake away from being fat”.

During this time, while watching a Vitali Klitschko fight, Dyah said to himself “I CAN do that!”  
Now how many of you have quietly said that same thing to yourself  while watching a baseball, basketball, or other sporting event  but never ACTED upon it?

Well,  Dyah stepped up and immediatley called his father and explained to him that he wants to start-up boxing. 
Twenty three years old, 225 pounds and not a doubt in his mind!!

Some people thought it was a pipe dream or just wasting his time. After all, he had no amateur fights, was totally out of shape, and expressed zero desire to follow in his famous dad’s footsteps up to this point. Dyah proved a lot of sceptics wrong.  He went straight to the professional ranks bypassing the amateur, and amassed a pro record of 19-2-1! 
To top it off, he  just defeated #3 ranked fighter Marcus Johnson, which should vault him into the top of the Super middleweight rankings. Oh, and he fights at a trim 168#’s!!

Moral of the story is don’t ever doubt yourself! EVER!  No matter what anyone says, If you have the desire to do something, get off your butt, and make it happen…..Dyah Ali Davis certainly did!

Pro Rugby Team Learning MMA Techniques at American Top Team

April 5th, 2011

Today we had the unique opportunity to work with SARACENS, which is one of England’s finest professional rugby teams.

The whole squad of players, coaches, and staff came over to learn a few techniques and tricks from Master Ricardo Liborio that we hope will help them during their final leg of the season.

It was a great pleasure to work with these incredible athletes, and also to hear about their training and what they go through during the year.  It was a real eye opener!

Best of luck to all the guys at SARACENS for a Championship season!!

Here are some pics of the team and their training.
