Take Responsibility for your training
by: Myles Jury
Over the years I’ve heard a bunch of reasons why people don’t work out. These reasons range from “not having enough time” to “I’m allergic to working out,” with each one ending up with the same results = THE PERSON DOESN’T WORK OUT. I realize that there will be emergencies and reasons come up in life as to why you can’t make your planned work out session but if it comes a consistent thing then it may be because you don’t take RESPONSIBILITY for your training. Taking “responsibility” for your training is the first step towards reaching any fitness goals you may have. Just like you learn to walk before you run, it is equally important to make sure you have committed to yourself that, You and You alone, are responsible to make it to any weekly work outs planned or scheduled. I like to think of “responsibility” as “responding with ability.” For example, lets look at a situation. You are supposed to run 30 minutes at night, but your friend asks if you want to go see a movie. So you “respond with ability” by saying, sorry I have a run I need to get in, so I will not be able to make it. You alone, have the control to make that choice of running and moving closer to your fitness goals, that is what responsibility is all about! Let me share with you some benefits you will have when you start taking “responsibility” for your training: Continue reading
GAINING That Edge
by: Nate Yoho
Having been in the fitness industry for the past seven years, I’ve heard my fair share of, “I’ve lost my motivation. How do I get it back?” Unfortunately the answer is far more complex than any motivational cliché, any half naked, carb depleted fitness model in a magazine, or the countless “motivational” memes from that Facebook friend. Motivation will come and go but here are 4 tips to keep in mind so you can maintain that driving force.
We are creatures of habit that must adapt to change. Sometimes our goals are set too high and are unachievable. Other times goals are set too low in an attempt to avoid failure. Be able to evaluate your progress and reset your goals so they are reasonable. Successful people know that change is inevitable and they must adapt accordingly. If you underestimate or overestimate your benchmarks have the willingness to reassess your goals taking into consideration your abilities. Continue reading
2+ is better than one. The importance of having a Team
by: Myles Jury
Introduction: Over the past couple years I have had countless people ask me, “If you could give one piece of advice to upcoming fighters who want to compete in the UFC and be successful, what would it be?” After seven fights in the UFC and over thirteen years in the sport of MMA (Mixed Martial Arts), I always tell them, “get a good team and surround yourself with people who will help you reach your true potential.” A team holds you accountable for your daily actions, provides knowledge, guidance and supports you in helping achieve personal goals. These people on your team should have your best interest at heart. They need to bring something to the table in terms of adding value to your career, while you will strive to do the same. Having a team mindset of “everyone is here to help each other get better,” is usually a recipe for success!

The Power of Transformation
by: Dr. Brad Archer, MD, FACP
How does a mixed martial artist change health care delivery, investment strategy, and people’s lives?
A patient of mine whom I’ll refer to as “Sue” passed away recently due to destruction of her nervous tissue connections resulting in a lack of feeling in her feet and her body’s inability to appropriately regulate her blood pressure. This was not a sudden, untreatable condition but rather a slow, progressive effect of elevated blood sugar over many years.

Debut Team Fury Blog; “Plant Based Nutrition”
by: Myles Jury
Everyone has heard the saying, “you are what you eat.” These days its more true than ever. Life moves fast, and the days of having family dinner every night at table are slim to none. A lot of people resort to fast food to accommodate the lifestyle, but I’m here to tell you about an alternative, “plant based nutrition.”

UFC 182 was supposed to be Myles Jury’s coming out party. He was 15-0 and taking on Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone at the UFC’s big New Year’s event. At the conclusion of the co-main event, Jury’s record stood at 15-1, his first defeat after a unanimous 30-27 decision at the hands of the #4 lightweight fighter in the world.
Big time athletes have God given talents, talents that separate them from the rest. Barry Bonds, Wayne Gretzky, Michael Jordan, Tom Brady, and Anderson Silva are all, at one time, the absolute best in the world at their respective professions. If they missed the game-winning shot, or hit the game-winning home run, these students of the game continued to look for ways to improve and take their game to the next level.

When Myles Jury graduated from The Ultimate Fighter into the UFC he had big dreams.
He wanted to climb the ranks of the lightweight division and one day hopefully become UFC champion. Thus far during his career, Jury has remained undefeated while taking out several top names including Diego Sanchez, Michael Johnson and Takanori Gomi.
He also dreamt about financial freedom, which is a luxury many fighters seemingly cannot afford. Fighter pay is a subject that comes up quite often, especially for competitors in a similar situation as Jury.
He’s only fought on a pay-per-view main card once in his career and his only co-main event slot prior to this weekend’s fight against Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone took place overseas for a show that aired on UFC Fight Pass, the promotion’s digital streaming service. Jury hasn’t been in main events or title fights just yet, but money is one thing you’ll never hear this lightweight fighter complain about.
Jury has been meticulous with every dollar he’s made since coming to the UFC four years ago and now he sits in an enviable position as he gears up for what he expects to be the prime of his career. Starting with his bout at UFC 182, Jury will likely pull in his largest paydays to date and as it turns out it’s just icing on the cake.
