Personal greats

November 10, 2009

You know the feeling when you’re in the gym or you’re training hard and you just haven’t quite got enough energy to pull off that last lift or to make it through the next round. And then a song kicks in that taps in to your previously plunging energy reserves, shakes them around a bit and fires you up way beyond what you thought you had left.

We all have our own personal favourites that rescue us in these moments, but here a few from just some of the great people I’ve met through training.

Wilf Betz

Wilf Betz – Professional MMA fighter and Muay Thai trainer



John Frusciante – Murderers

Opening Song to Pride FC

Wilf’s very own entrance music (two songs):

1. Tomoyasu Hotei – Battle Without Honour or Humanity

2. Jimmie’s Chicken Shack – Lazy Boy Dash

And finally…

Joe Esposito – You’re the Best Around
