Most gyms that you go into you’re going to find the same things. Usually by the front are all the cardio machines like treadmills, ellipticals, and bikes. Next you find all the weight machines and the free weights are stuffed somewhere in the back or along the walls. Of course, no gym would be complete without a class studio and a spinning room. But then, one day, you run into something that breaks all the rules. You’ve gone through the rabbit hole and on the other side you’ve found a gym that doesn’t look like a gym at all. There are big iron balls with handles called Kettlebells and something called Indian Clubs. There are Straps with handles hanging from the ceiling and who knows what they are for. Attached to the wall is a very thick rope. There are bags hanging from the wall, and other bags that look like people. There are no treadmills, free weights or machines. What is this place? This is no regular gym; this is a martial arts gym called Jungle and it opened on Jan. 1. There’s something called the Look Good Naked Workout where you do things like the Turkish Getup, Casts, Junglemans and Double Waves; things you’ve never seen before. There’s a martial art class called Muay Thai where you learn how to punch, kick, knee and elbow. There’s even something called the Precision Nutrition Re-Education. This is different. Jungle was founded by me, Kedric Fink, aka Kedric “The Wolf” Umaa. I’m a retired

fighter and fought in Muay Thai and MMA (cagefighting). I’ve been known to be a little different. On June 24, 2008, I was named New York City’s Toughest Personal Trainer by the New York Post and, according to contest participant, judge and author Mary Huhn, “he made me do things that never occurred to me to do.” Jungle is meant for people who are bored with the same old workout that doesn’t do anything for them. No more standing on a treadmill for 30 minutes staring into space. No more wandering around the gym trying to figure out which machine to use. Jungle is classes and personal training for weight loss and building lean physiques. The classes at Jungle hold as many as eight people and are 45 minutes of fat melting goodness using “vintage exercises and tools.” It’s vintage because the tools found at Jungle are nothing new. As a matter of fact, they’re old, very old. In almost every picture of old-time strong men, you’ll find a Kettlebell being lifted. Indian Clubs are the first thing humans started working out with 5,000 years ago. Sailors have waved and pulled on ropes for a couple thousand years and Straps have been used since the 1800s. All of these things have been forgotten with time, but the memory is starting to resurface. What’s old is new again. Jungle is located at 9300 S. Dixie Hwy., next to Shorty’s.
