Best style to take up training?

Look I know it sucks to get noobs into forums dropping questions but this was the most logical subforum I could find. (mods feel free to move it)


Anyways I was looking into doing some MMA for mainly for a workout and strength building.


What would be the best discipline that would challenge me physically, and help me build strength rather than trying to become a sound MMA fighter.

I don't have any ambition to become a fighter or anything like that mostly a workout and a hobby.


I saw a Kravmaga place right up the street I've heard interesting things about it but I don't know which style is best for what I'm looking for.

Seriously, I'm at a loss. I have never thought of MMA as just something to do to keep from getting fat. Anyways..., easily the best discipline to challenge you physically is Wrestling. However, there aren't alot of Wrestling options outside of High School and College. So, unless you're in High School or College, Wrestling is probably out. I'm still kinda stuck on the thought of using MMA as something to pass time. Okay, anyways, the best styles to challenge you physically are just about any grappling style. BJJ, Judo, Sambo, Wrestling... The strength that grappling builds is on a completely different planet than what you'd get from say Krav Maga. I guess I shouldn't say that, I don't know much about the Israeli Krav Maga. I just know that local fitness gyms use it to help self conscious, self absorbed, middle age women stay skinny. I'm not real sure that fitness Krav Maga is anything like the Israeli close combat Krav Maga?
