Training in a Ghost Town

Tales of an MMA Lifer: Training in a Ghost Town
By Julie Kedzie, FightLand Blog
"The one thing they’re loath to tell you about fighting is that a training camp, in addition to being grueling and all-encompassing of mind and spirit, can also be just so damn tedious sometimes. Pushing and pushing at a relentless pace with everything you have toward one goal is an adventure, but let’s not fool ourselves--it can be deeply monotonous to be in the gym for hours and hours every day."

"According to my striking coach Brandon Gibson, there's no better way to shake things up than a trip to a ghost town. Last Sunday he and über-talented photographer Will Fox took a group of us from Jackson’s MMA to the ghost town of Ojo de Padre, which is situated near the Rio Puerco River, about an hour away from Albuquerque. There, amid the rugged grit of the desert silhouetted by the Cabezon volcano and abandoned buildings, we hit mitts, sprinted, shadowboxed, and shook ourselves from the tedium of routine."
