As many of you know, interest in the fighting arts (jiu-jitsu, muay thai, wrestling, karate) has increased dramatically in the last few years, due, in large part to the popularity of mixed martial arts organizations such as the UFC.
Well, at the Precision Nutrition headquarters, we too have been caught by the MMA bug. Although most of our work is still done with recreational exercisers wanting to look great, feel better, and perform to their highest potential, recently we’ve been providing nutrition services for many of the UFC’s elite.
Heck, even some of our own team have been active in the fighting arts. Indeed, Alaina Hardie, part of our Technology and Design team, has earned a purple belt in Brazillian jiu-jitsu and brought home a bronze medal at the 2009 Fila World Championships.
Alaina’s story is an interesting one. In just 3 years, Alaina has gone from a sedentary, gym-shy 200+ lb woman to a 155 lb international grappling champion. For more on her story, check out her athlete profile.

Here at Precision Nutrition we’re very proud of Alaina’s accomplishments. From her humble gym beginnings to her recent success at the World Championships, Alaina’s story is one we can all learn from and be inspired by.
