Just got into Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai last fall. I've been enjoying them a lot, and I have never had a cardio workout like going 3 5 minute rounds with someone experienced in Jits. I usually wind up laying on the mat gasping for air at the end. The wife is doing it back home as well, so I imagine I'll be doing some amateur fights next year.

Personal tips that I've learned along my still short journey:

Leave your ego at the door.
Prepare. Showing up dehydrated, hungry, and tired will guarantee failure.
Be ready to fight for that grinder of a PR.
Listen and learn. Absorb everything you can, and assimilate that knowledge.

Top Gym lifts:
Squat: 415lbs
Deads: 440lbs
Bench: 315lbs

I am very big into being outside ..

Played baseball since I could walk, but now I am play in a Men's and Coed softball league.

I still play soccer every once in a while, but softball takes up most of my actual sports time.

Kayaking, and hiking are also big on my list.

The thing that I do most right now though is play paintball, travel all over the east coast to play and have met a lot of really cool people doing it.
