Prime Gym Time: Nostos MMA

  The streets of Somerworth, New Hampshire look like they were pulled straight from a warzone; cones, barrels, rutted pavement and other tire-popping obstacles around every twist and turn. As I rolled through the downtown area, I wasn’t sure I’d even be able to find my destination among the confusion of orange signs and detours, […]

Prime Gym Time: First Class MMA & Fitness

  Twelve hours after leaving my house on my odyssey through Northern and Central Maine MMA, my car came to rest at its final stop in Brunswick, Maine in a pitted and active parking lot.

The smell of burning quasi-meat patties being “broiled” to chemical death drifted through the vents of my car, reminding me I haven’t eaten since I started my voyage.

Prime Gym Time: Rising Phoenix Martial Arts

The mass of brick came into view as my GPS directed me down yet another side street, the rutted New Hampshire pavement giving my pickup truck a workout as I rolled up to my destination.
