Got mace?

One of the Kings of circular training, the mace is an ancient Indian warrior training tool and a favorite instrument of Hanuman, the Indian god of strength.

You don't have to be an Indian god to get amazing benefits from wielding the mighty mace. Nothing else works the rotational strength of the shoulder the way mace swinging does. Great for martial arts, racquet sports, grappling, rehabilitation, flexibility, cardiovascular and overall strength endurance, and much more, the mace is as fun as it is beneficial.

Come to the Evil Munky mace demo and learn:
-Basic mace swinging patterns
-How to apply the mace to individual needs
-And more!

Evil Munky makes weight-adjustable fillable maces (water, BB's, lead shot, sand...) custom to your specifications. Come check us out and discover your inner Munky!

SmartFlex™ Demo: The training tool Q would have designed for James Bond if he were a ninja.

Looks can be deceiving. This simple stick is anything but “simple”. Your muscles will see and feel what your eyes can’t (hidden patent-pending technology).

The SmartFlex™, already adopted by pro athletes (baseball, ski, volley ball, surfing, golf etc) and their physical therapists and trainers, as well as various branches of law enforcement (DSS, SWAT), delivers scientifically backed evidence of increased muscular activation (compared to certain traditional exercises), therapeutic fitness and performance improvements.

This highly versatile & portable training tool can quickly help improve joint mobility & flexibility, rebuild muscle tone & address imbalances and more.

Come to the SmartFlex™l Demo and Learn:

  • Its variety of configurations and training adaptations
  • Its “done-for-you”, self-correcting muscular activation
  • Simple go-to drills for the most commonly observed limitations
  • How to get a great workout with it, be it standalone or in conjunction with your existing arsenal

 
12:00 pm - 12:30 pm Presented by: Ron Jones and Kevin Rail

The Lean Berets’ “Organic Flow” is natural movement education for ALL generations. The exercises are “primitive” or fundamental to human movement. Performing them properly will help you move better with less compensation. Flow is a blend of relaxation and optimal arousal for a specific task - athletes call this “The Zone” or the sweet spot in movement, so don’t forget to flow. Modify as needed to keep appropriate for ability and safety. Our organic philosophy is to be as natural and as simple as possible with food and fitness… we want everyone to play and have fun doing it!
