About the "APEX: Auditions & MMA Camp"
The APEX: Auditions & MMA Camp is scheduled for the weekend of April 22nd and April 23rd and to be held at the luxurious Radisson Hotel in Toronto-Mississauga. The "APEX: Auditions & MMA Camp" will consist of a two day training camp for all fighters interested in stepping up and becoming APEX fighters and/or for athletes who are looking for an intensive training regimen with some of the worlds best trainers; Carlos The Ronin Newton, Duane Bang Ludwig and Everton Coach E McEwen.
On Saturday, April 22nd, all participants will be split into groups according to their respective weights and experience. Each group will spend the entire day training with various world class trainers in multiple training rooms. Saturdays sessions will also involve a "Lunch and Learn" seminar with the highly acclaimed Dr. Paul Biondich. Dr. Paul will discuss the real truth about popular sports supplements for MMA, explaining which supplements are detrimental to MMA athletes and which are highly recommended. Participants will also learn about the latest in injuring prevention, sports medicine treatments (for common injuries suffered by Mixed Martial Artists) and the biggest topic of all how to safely cut weight for a fight.
Sundays sessions will be an official audition for each participant who is interested in becoming an APEX competitor. This will involve some light sparring, ground work and recorded interviews. During the entire training camp, participants will be evaluated by their respective trainers as well as a large team of evaluators including legendary manager/promoter, Monte Cox (who will also be scouting for talent for all his shows in the Midwest). Other evaluators include "Showdown" Joe Ferraro, APEX Matchmaker Alex Caporicci, Canadian National Olympic Tae Kwon Do coach Florin Fratean, the APEX team and some soon to be announced special guests.
