Profesionalni bodybuilder Martyn Ford se seli na polje mešanih boriljnih veščin (MMA). 33-letni Britanec je podpisal profesionalno pogodbo s poljsko organizacijo KSW. V ringu naj bi debitiral leta 2019.
"Vedno sem imel rad vse oblike borilnih veščin. Zelo sem vesel priložnosti, da lahko v kletki pokažem, kaj znam," je povedal Ford, ki nima predhodnih izkušenj z mešanimi borilnimi veščinami.
"Prepričan sem bil, da bom postal profesionalni igralec kriketa. Rad sem imel ta šport, a se je nato vse spremenilo. Poškodba, malo smole in izguba volje," je pojasnil svoje karierne odločitve.
Po navedbah predstavnikov poljske organizacije je svojo pozornost zdaj preusmeril k mešanim borilnim veščinam ter posvetil treningom in analizi različnih stilov borbe, obenem pa spremenil svoj vsakdanji režim, da bi bil prehod kar se da enostaven.
Ford se je v preteklosti ukvarjal z bodybuildingom in igralstvom, saj je nastopil v številnih britanskih filmih in televizijskih oddajah. Znan je tudi kot spletna osebnost, njegov uradni Instagram profil ima že 1,4 milijona sledilcev.
In obvezni vzdevek? "Nočna mora".

Part of the journey is finding what works and what you find fun !!! Fitness is something we must enjoy if we are to succeed, with so many options and variables we can use, there really is no excuse. As a coach I take all of this into consideration, I also look at designing plans that are practical for you, work around restraints and limitations. Having goals are great, BUT are they realistic and achievable, the point of a goal is that you achieve your target !!! Simple steps that help you achieve your dreams.
