If you are here, it means you are training at Checkmat Charlotte or are interested in what we do. Please check out our main page at http://paincavefitness.com/checkmat-training-program/. We will use this site to keep our members updated of changes and events in the Pain Cave at Checkmat Charlotte.

Training here is not like any other regular “gym”, so the results you will get are not “regular” either. We focus on stability, strength, power, speed, and competition prep for combat sports; although you do not need to be a combat athlete, you may start looking like one due to the training.

Train for Function, Form Will Come.
