Professional MMA Coach and Martial Arts Innovator, Bruce Lombard, continues his efforts to impact peoples lives in the State College and Penn State Community, and beyond. His 25 years of martial arts experience, and his innovative methods through martial arts and fitness are aimed at making a positive difference for all genders, ages, and physical abilities.
Bruce Lombard is the owner of LombardMMA and has been teaching martial arts at Titan Fitness & Martial Arts located in State College, PA for over 15 years. LombardMMA took its first steps in 2009 with its goals to teach martial arts and fitness to participants in a one on one or small group training environment.
LombardMMA started to broaden beginning in 2012 as the martial arts brand took on some innovative ideas.
In 2012, Bruce worked with local Physical Education teachers to create "Martial Arts Fitness" which is a Physical Education full curriculum. The curriculum includes two separate units, instructional DVD's, and online membership for course instructions and consultation. There are now multiple high schools in Pennsylvania and New York states that are using the unique and life-long curriculum.
Also in 2012, with the advice of a local high school football coach whom was a LombardMMA training client, Bruce created MMAFx. MMAFx is a mixed martial arts off-season cross training system for football players. The training includes techniques and drills from boxing, Muay Thai kickboxing, wrestling, and traditional martial arts that are similar to movements in football.
MMAFx currently works with multiple Penn State football players and multiple NFL players to help develop or increase their hand speed, agility, balance, timing, conditioning, and punching power.
The Houston Texans also incorporate MMAFx training elements led by Head Strength Coach and Assistant Strength Coach, Craig Fitzgerald and Sean Hayes.
In 2014 LombardMMA-FIT was created. LombardMMA-FIT is an online fitness and martial arts at-home workouts. It is Bruce's version of "Insanity" or any "Kickboxing Fitness" at home workout program. The initiative was to do develop a workout with calisthenics, core training, plyometric and strength exercises...with the incorporation of real kickboxing and boxing techniques.
LombardMMA-FIT has the objective to not only help people get fit in the privacy of their own home, but also learn how to properly perform self-defense techniques. The program includes four intensity levels of workouts and provides instructional videos for how to perform each kickboxing and boxing technique.
