THE SUPERSTAR FIGHT TRAINER

 

Trainers in the fight profession are dedicated caring people.  They love the sport and make many sacrifices for it.  Fighters of all kinds eventually look at the trainer as a friend, coach, and parent.

 

The trainer looks at his fighter as a personal work of art, a masterpiece that has to be chiseled to perfection.  Often time his fighter is an animal of a rare breed in which he selfishly unleashes to the public.  The trainer as the Frankenstein, the fighter as the monster, the two gleefully set out to wreck havoc on the standings of an unsuspecting sanctioning organization.  As success grows between a fighter and his trainer, so does the bond between them.

 

The trainer…

 

…what is he?

 

…who is he?

 

A trainer can start out to be a father, a person whom tasted the flavor of his favorite sport, in this case, fighting; a dream career that fulfilled his life better than all the fantasies that a fight career could take him.  On the other hand, he or she could be the fighter who may have experienced the worst the fight profession has dealt out, one hard luck decision after another in his fight career.  A former fighter that Lady Luck had frowned on, but he has taken it into his heart to help some young pugs beat the odds by sharing his life lessons, giving the young fighter the benefit of his skill and experience.

 

A trainer in most cases is not the uniformed guy or gal that you see when you go to your fitness gym.  Straight laced, not a mark on them, toned and well defined from a college education with perfect diction. 

 

A fight trainer is a person that will stand in front of you with his eyes burning and analyzing right through your soul.  He can almost determine as you walk through the door if:

 

         You are going to waste his time.

         You are a whiner.

         A crybaby.

         Gutless.

         Trying to lose a jelly belly.

         A loser.

         A pretender.

         A momma’s boy.

         A thug.

         A FIGHTER.

         A CHAMPION.

 

  Usually, one to three percent of the people that walk through the gym door fit the last two categories.

 

In boxing, fight trainers are like no other in fighting sports.  The boxing trainers usually are as famous and as                     storied as the fighters.   Two that comes to mind are Emmanuel Steward and Angelo Dundee.

 

There are millions of fighters in the world and there is a hugh demand for qualified trainers. Trainers of today are learning more and not just through their experience in the ring but many have taken advantage of what formal education has had to offer them also.  The elite boxing trainer of today has the information that research, development and medical science has to offer as well as new technology such as the computer, websites, dvds and emails to train fighters in the unconventional sense.

 

The modern day boxing trainer does not have to remain in one gym to make his impact on the boxing world.  Same goes for the fight trainers in other sports.

 

Emmanuel Steward and Angelo Dundee were two of the first global super trainers.  They did not have to stay with a fighter throughout their complete training leading up to a super fight to have impact on the fighter.  They would sign up as the fighter’s trainer but would orchestrate the fighter’s training from another city via telephone with the associate trainer who had probably trained the fighter since the fighter began his career.

 

One thing that these super trainers brought to the fight game was an additional fight genius along with the trainer who originally brought the fighter along.  They helped mold a strategy for the fighter and brought celebrity status to the fight.  Their celebrity status not only brought in fans but television and sponsors which help make the fight more than just a fight, but an event.

 

As a fight trainer, you have to keep moving ahead as you build champions.  Do not wait to be discovered, toot your horn and let the powers that be in the fight game know that you helped forged this fighter’s career.  You can start your own website, newsletter on the web or in print to let fans know about the fight industry, fight strategy, nutrition, etc.  You bring you own brand or training to the public. Be original.

 

Monitor you reputation and popularity.  As demand grows for your services, hire assists to help you but teach them your brand of training.  As your reputation and demand for you time grows; think about setting up seminars and clinics to meet the demands.

 

A fight trainer does not have to be a washed up old pug with plenty of old war stories to tell like the movie, Rocky Balboa, but a businessman capable of hauling in millions from his teachings and organizational skills.  Remember, the ring is just one arena where you can train fighters.  Just remember, there are seminars, cds, dvds, lectures, live demonstrations, fitness groups, websites, TV shows, satellite and cable radio where you can earn a living teaching the gospel of fighting.  Don’t limit yourself.

 

Then you will carry the reputation as a super trainer being flown in to a location to tune up a top contender!

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

 

AS ALWAYS!

 

KEEP YOUR GUARD UP, AND KEEP ON PUNCHING!
