Anavii Market interviews Mark Tupas from Mark Tupas Fitness about MMA and CBD's role in fitness recovery.
What got you into fitness and coaching?
Fitness has always been a way of life for me. Growing up I was always active in sports. I got into full-time coaching after my Pro MMA career didn’t quite work out I had to pivot in this direction & found out I wasn’t bad at it at all, so here I am.
What type of fitness and martial arts do you teach?
I teach a functional fitness approach to help assist others to recognize their dysfunctions, we then unlearn it and relearn new ways to be able to move better. I currently don’t teach Martial arts as a group, but we do offer Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu at my gym for children & adults instructed by Robert Lagasca. As for my privates, I do have clients that come in for boxing and kickboxing pad work, but my background is MMA so we pretty much can do it all.
How does CBD help you or your students?
As for me, it helps a lot with the recovery aspect, especially with joint & muscle aches. I sprained my ankle one time & it helped speed up the healing process. For our clients, I have an “in-house” Chiro ( The Wellness Project LV ) that uses it on our clients. We have both the Recovery Balm & Bio Freeze with 500mg CBD in it.
What do you or your students struggle with most regarding fitness?
I feel like for the most part is staying consistent with it. Clients tend to work towards a goal and once they get a taste of small accomplishments, they fall back again. But that’s just through my experience. I’ve also had clients that have stayed consistent with me for a few years now.
What do you see for the future of CBD in sports?
I see CBD being a big part of recovery aspects, in my opinion. It’s not how hard you work it’s how well you can recover in order to keep going.
Any shout out's you'd like to give?
Shoutout to family, my daughter Faith-Rose daddy loves you! @ Pharmxtracts- PX international, @ The Wellness Project LV, @ BrainStorm Fitness, to all my clients past/present & to everyone that been supporting me unconditionally without them I wouldn’t be where I’m at & oh yea the haters too can’t forget about them, what up!
If there was one piece of advice you'd give to future athletes and people trying to get into shape, what would it be?
You must first work on your mental health because truly that is the powerhouse of performance in all aspects of life!
