This workout kicked my butt

Just because you’re not having to dodge uppercuts from Chuck Liddell doesn’t mean that getting a MMA-style workout is easy.
I nearly collapsed into a exhausted, sweaty mess after a little more than an hour in the hands of two of Emerald Smoke trainers–Tomas Grinkevicius and Mike Bodziach.
Now, I’m admittedly no world-class athlete. My fitness is probably closer to Kenny Rogers than Kenny Florian’s, but I run, bike and play basketball on a semi-regular basis. Still, I was not prepared for the intensity of the workout.
