“I was of course delighted when UFC Gym Japan offered to be my fitness sponsor. I certainly need to be fit for a 2–3 month solo crossing. What I did not realize is how relevant and focused the training would be and how much I would learn. In the Workout of Titans once a week early morning, I am learning agility and focus, and the ability to control my body and use it efficiently. In my one-on-one sessions with Darrell I am gaining insights into the mechanics and muscular architecture. All the training at UFC Gym is focusing on my needs to be on the boat. Whether it is crawling out of bed in the morning and planting my feet firmly on the floor or climbing the mast solo, I believe the insights and skills I am learning at UFC Gym will save my life!”
