“Everyday I wake up with a goal, a drive, a passion and its because of martial arts. Everyday you have the choice to get better, not just in the art but in life! I am in LOVE. I love what I do, who I train with, the journey, the battle, the blood sweat and tears I love it all.”

5 THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT JODIE ESQUIBEL
WHAT IS A TYPICAL DAY OF TRAINING LIKE?
I will usually have two training sessions a day. They vary between MMA class, kick boxing, wrestling ,jujitsu (Gracie Barra NM), Strength and Conditioning (Turning Point), Yoga (Hot Yoga Infusion), and Boxing (Danny Romeros Hideout) and a run will get thrown in the mix here and there. I feel now that I am older and far wiser. My training has changed from the day I once thought the more I work out the better. I understand that is quality over quantity make every workout count and you don’t have to work out all day.
