W2W'S response to COVID-19
All countries and states are dealing with their own unique challenges and strategies to help overcome the COVID-19 pandemic. W2W are working on a customised solution with each gym and local government authorities to determine the safest and most timely approach for individual W2W Series to recommence.
If you are a current competitor, please keep an eye on your inbox and series Facebook group for updates from your coach and W2W. If you have any further questions, please contact us for an update.
What is a free intro class?
A free Intro Class is exactly as it sounds – a chance for you to learn a few new mixed martial arts techniques and try a sample of the Warrior Training Program… for free! There is NO obligation to continue with the program after your intro class, and we can guarantee you’ll learn some fun and practical moves that will help in your everyday life.
When you show up to your Intro Class, you’ll step inside the gym you’ll be training at, meet the world-class coaches and hear a bit about their background. You’ll do a warm up, and then the fun begins! You’ll be taken through a training session where you’ll learn some simple self defence techniques, effective (and fun!) takedowns, and other mixed martial arts moves.
You’ll then get a chance to learn more about the Warrior Training Program, hear a few stories from past Warriors and ask all your burning questions.
You’ll walk away with a clear understanding of what to expect over the 20 week program, what the benefits are and most importantly, a gut feel on whether you’re ready to make the commitment. If you’re ready – we’re ready. And if you’re not? That’s ok too! You’ll have learned some practical new MMA techniques to apply in everyday life and know that the program is available if you change your mind in the future.
how much does W2W cost and whats included?
A common question we receive is how much will it cost, and is that cost worth it? In our opinion, the answer is 100% YES!
When you join a W2W series, you’re getting 100+ professional, structured training sessions over a 20 week period, with some of the best MMA coaches in the business.
You also receive all your protective gear including full W2W branded 16oz and 8oz gloves, 2 pieces of custom uniform (eg. rash guard / crop top and tights / shorts), W2W branded shin guards and hand wraps, a nutritional e-book and ongoing support through a private forum. The program ends with the ultimate bucket list experience, the W2W Finale, which is also included in the cost of the program.
The overall program cost depends on which country you’re located in. See our Program Costs page.
We also offer military and students discounts. Please contact us for further details.
who does the W2W program?
All fitness levels are welcome, and no prior MMA experience is needed to begin the W2W 20 week training program. It is designed for men and women from all walks of life who want to get fit, learn new skills and step outside their comfort zone for a life-changing experience.
Everyone has a different reason for signing up for W2W. It’s this reason, or your ‘why’, that keeps you motivated to show up day after day, til you reach the end of this life-changing challenge and step inside the octagon.
To compete in the W2W Finale event you must be 18 years old, but there is no upper age limit. Our oldest competitor to date is 62 years old! All competitors are required to pass a medical examination before stepping inside the octagon.
Is the w2w program safe?
This is a contact combat sport, so bumps and bruises will happen. However, this program has been designed with Competitor safety at the forefront. It’s created to strengthen your body and whilst there are lots of basic technical movements to learn, you will slowly progress to higher stages of training as you get stronger in order to minimise any injuries. We run a very strict rule set that is passed down internationally.
Our Competitors compete in 8oz gloves which are bigger and more padded than what you see on TV. Our referees are heavily briefed to ensure all of our Competitors and kept very safe during Finale and of course under professional guidance and support from your experienced Coaches.
do many females do the w2w program?
Our goal is to have 50/50 participation of males and females in all our series around the globe. On average around 40% of competitors worldwide are female, with some series having well over 50% female participation.
Many women take on W2W not just for the physical challenge, but to be a great role model to their family, to face their fears and to feel empowered.
How do I know I can do this?
Fear of failure, fear of embarrassment, sometimes even fear of success, these are common and normal emotions. Every gym that hosts a W2W series is thoroughly checked and prepared to ensure they offer a supportive and welcoming environment. This is central to our ethos. When you join W2W, you join a family that is here to help, support and guide you along the way. Once you take on this challenge, you’ll always be part of the W2W family.
Is there a nutrition plan you have to follow?
You are not forced to follow any nutritional plan during the Warrior Training Program. However, if you want to get the best results possible, we recommend following the weekly meal plan included in the Wimp 2 Warrior nutritional guidelines, which you will receive when you join the program. This plan has been designed by top nutritionists to aid your transformation while giving you the energy you need to train five days a week.
What are the Facilities like?
W2W only partners with the elite MMA gyms in the world to ensure our members experience the best quality training in world-class facilities.
How the course is structured and what they can expect to get out of it?
The Warrior Training Program is structured across 20 weeks, with each week consisting of 5 days of training. The training is divided between Mixed Martial Arts and Strength & Conditioning training to give you lasting physical transformation results and invaluable lifelong skills in self-defence and Martial Arts.
When you join the Warrior Training Program, you can expect to receive several benefits, both physically and emotionally. The Warrior Training Program will make you fitter than you have ever been, improving your cardio, making you stronger, and helping you lose weight through exercise and a detailed nutritional program.
Warrior Training Program participants can also expect to gain a plethora of mental benefits. By pushing you to your limits, physically and emotionally for five days a week, we will show you how to crush your physical and emotional limitations.
As you progress in the program, you will also find yourself gaining confidence and self-belief. By learning how to defend yourself, you will become more confident in your ability to handle any situation that comes to your life, both personally and professionally.
What is the W2W Finale?
After 20 weeks of intense training, our participants have the option to be matched up against a fellow Warrior and have their very own MMA fight in front of their friends and family at the W2W Finale.
Regardless if you are a spectator, a coach or a fighter, the W2W finale is a night you’ll never forget. With high-quality production, a world-class octagon and fighters sporting professional MMA fight gear, it can be easy to forget that each fighter making the walk was an MMA novice only 20 weeks ago.
After committing themselves to a rigorous schedule where they pushed themselves past their limits, faced their fears and experienced phenomenal transformations, the W2W finale is the perfect way to mark the end of a once-in-a-lifetime journey for our Warriors.
As it will be the only time many of our Warriors partake in an MMA Fight Night, we are committed to giving them and their supporters that attend the event a night that they will never forget. If you would like to experience an amazing celebration of transformation, success, and mental fortitude, visit a W2W Finale!
do i have to fight at the finale?
Participation in the W2W Finale is optional for all participants.
The Finale at the end is ultimately the graduation, it’s the point of true empowerment and a chance to really prove to yourself that with the right determination and motivation you really can do anything. With Competitor safety at the forefront of all of our programs, if the coaches feel a Competitor is not ready either physically or mentally, they will not be put forward to compete in the finale. If you do not feel comfortable with the thought of taking part in the finale you will not be asked to do so.
