I have trained with lots of strength and conditioning coaches and none of them come close to what i have found at IR. Every day training has become fun and challenging again.

How did you get started?

I grew up wrestling and got into jiujitsu in my twenties.  When I moved to California, I was introduced to Ian McCall.  We started working together and got great results.  Over time, his training partners, friends and other local competitors started coming to our gym.  Word spread throughout our area and continues today.

Innovative-Results is a great place to train. I love the environment and the workouts are always intense and always challenging. I have noticed a definite improvement in my endurance and strength in my fighting and over all fitness from training with Innovative-Results.

Tell us a little about your experience working with combat athletes

Combat sports are both physically and mentally demanding.  You’ve got to be tough and smart with your training, otherwise its easy to fall off. One of the biggest things that I see, is chronic over-training.  Coaches and athletes think more is better and that training like Dan Gable is the only way to succeed.  Athlets bounce from gym to gym, trying to develop their skills, but end up tired, drained and injured.

In order to improve consistently, you have to develop a plan that balances the skill training, strength & conditioning, nutrition, recovery and the rest of their life.  This seems simple, but requires a lot of communication between coaches and application by the athlete.

When we get organized and have good buy in from all parties, we are able to do incredible things.  We have been very fortunate to have multiple world champions, gold medals and a lot of success over the years.

As a professional UFC fighter having the best strength and conditioning training is imperative. 2011 is a big year for me and thats why I sought out Innovative Results. Strength, power and endurance all is one place. Amazing! Whether you are training for a specific sport or just trying to get in the best shape possible you need Innovative Results. I can’t recommend this place enough. Contact them today and see if you are lucky enough for them to fit you in.

My BEST advice for the new guy… someone that has no knowledge and wants to start training.

Keep showing up.

My favorite exercise, drill or activity

Fighting is a tough sport and takes its toll on the body.  Because of this, I like to use exercises and drills that do not put our athletes at risk.

Some of my favorite drills are dragging chains, crawling with chains, battling rope series, towel taz and others.

You can work extremely hard, without a high risk of injury.

Innovative Results challenges me mentally and physically…forcing me to get in the best shape of my life and perform at my best. I can’t say that I’m always excited about going, but I drive over an hour each way to train at IR. Awesome people, great coaches and really effective workouts.

A favorite story from your experiences?  A cool transformation, opportunity, lessons  learned, etc

I started working with Ian McCall about 5 years ago.  We met at our apartment complex and slowly developed a relationship.  He had taken some time off from the WEC, struggling with bad habits and trying to get his momentum back.  Over the past few years we have gone through a lot of good times and bad.  He’s struggled to get back in shape, made a run to the top, died, got married, had a kid, got divorced, had multiple injuries, suffered tough losses, lost close friends and continues to fight for his goals.  He has been my toughest challenge to date and I am confident that he will be a UFC champion.

Rob's experience with crossfit in orange county

The workouts at IR are not only sport specific but very functional to the bodies movement designed for my sport. There training sessions are short and sweet and I can still train again in the same day which is instrumental in a fight camp scenario. I use muscles in movements in the IR workouts that I do in a fight as well as interval between conditioning of my cardiovascular system bursts to full body strength movements. Not only I’m i surrounded by some of the best athletes in my sport @ IR but the next generation as well. Unlike the scattered warehouse of injured crossfitters Innovative Results has high level athletes down to ladies and kids staying in shape with the new science of biomechanics , science, kinesiology ,anatomy and more! Innovative Results is a game changer for any athlete.. I highly recommend it. @RazoRob

What are you most proud of?

I love watching athletes develop, overcome and reach their goals.  I don’t care if its a world title or their first tournament victory.  The process of improving, staying consistent and overcoming isn’t an easy one, but is rewarding.  I’m humbled by the amount of talented, hard working athletes that I’ve been able to work with over the years.  We’ve had some fun times, rough times and incredible victories that I will never forget.  I am thankful for the opportunity to assist all of my guys/girls in their journey.

I have recently just started training at innovative results but I can attest to the effectiveness of the training ,.. As a World Class athlete I have trained all over the world and basically thought I had seen it all for better or worse throughout my career but innovative results throws something new at me every time I train,..they make training fun again.

In all my years of training around the world, nothing compares to the workouts at Innovative Results. The workouts make me strong, help my cardio, but also help me stay healthy and pain free. I love this place.
