Welcome To Grapplefit

iphone 154My name is Barry Gibson and I own and operate Grapplefit Training, providing no-nonsense training for combat athletes and regular folks who want to get fit and look like a fighter without the flat noses and mangled ears!!
 
I've had the pleasure of training many fighters including the UFC's own Ross Pearson, Phil Defries and Colin Fletcher. I also work with elite athletes from judo, boxing and wrestling.
 
Here at Grapplefit you'll find training plans, advice, articles and videos to blast your conditioning and fitness through the roof!! At Grapplefit Towers we use things like sandbags, kettlebells, bodyweight, barbells, sledgehammers, tractor tyres and much much more!! You won't find a shiny machine in here and there's a very good reason... I don't like them ;-) What you will find is concise information on fitness, training clips of everyone from Pro MMA superstars and boxers to regular civil servant type folks who train here in the pursuit of awesomeness!!
 
I've been involved in judo and sambo for over 30 years and have coached, taught and trained for all of my professional career - I still compete myself and am a member of Team GB Sambo and Combat Sambo, as well as a former British and Scottish Champion.
 
I've produced several books and DVDs on combat sports preparation (you can find them in the product section ;-)) and am continually developing new methods to further my athletes' performances. My knowledge is garnered through study and practical experience - I only started learning how to coach AFTER university however, by being in the trenches so to speak.
 
I'm a strength & conditioning contributor to Fighters Only and Train Hard Fight Easy Magazine, and regularly consult and provide editorial content for other publications such as Mens Fitness.
 
Welcome to the site - feel free to browse around at the articles and join the forum for any topics or queries you wish to discuss!!
 
See you soon...
