ABOUT US

Time-Tested Approach

To Strength and Fitness


Mace Fit ( macefit.com) combines training with maces and clubs. It can be used as a stand alone  program or added to your existing training. I'm Frank DiMeo, the founder and coordinator of macefit.com. My training journey began  in the 1960's with martial arts, which I practiced and taught for many years. Later I transitioned into strength and conditioning then finally into this type of training.
In January 2016, when Don Giafardino first instructedme at my gym, the Cave,  and I  started to integrate it into our classes at my gym immediately.
I have been mentored online by Rik Brown (aka Mr. Maceman) for the past year or so.
Our program design has  been tested "hands-on" and tweaked  over time to help our clients get solid results. We will show you how to start a Mace Fit program at your training facility and how to program the training for beginners and for those more advanced.

SHOULDER STRENGTH

Many Mace Fit exercise require you to swing the mace for full range of motion. These types of exercises will increase flexibility and mobility while simultaneously improving the strength of the muscles and connective tissue surrounding the shoulder joint.

STABILITY

Stabilizer muscles distribute the work of training and movement throughout our bodies instead of placing all the stress on one or two primary movers/joints.If stabilizers are weak, you risk creating muscle imbalances and increase the chance of injury. Also, stabilizing muscles provide a solid foundation that your body needs for postural support. This is crucial for sports performance and ability to take pressure on joints (think pretty much every full-contact sport).

CORE STRENGTH

The offset weight, similar to unilateral training, will drastically improves balance and coordination, something many conventional weightlifting athletes are missing as they mostly train in the sagittal and frontal plane with an even weight distribution (squats, deadlifts and bench). The uconventional Mace Fit training method challenges and takes balance to a whole new level.

GRIP STRENGTH

grip_strength
Grip strength is a combination of finger, hand and forearm strength. You use your grip every single day from picking anything up, to opening that jar of pickles to carrying your groceries inside. The non-proportional weight distribution of the Mace combined with swinging motions requires an extra strong grip. Since Mace training often is comprised of repetitive movements, grip strength will significant improvement as weeks and months pass.
