crossfit or mma?

Hey everyone, I just wanted to get some insight on this delimma I have. I'm planning on joining an mma & crossfit gym and it is pretty expensive. You have to pay 2 months in advance along with an enrollment fee. Crossfit adds up to 350 fist time and mma training is 250 first time. I can't afford both. My main goal is to get in shape and I want to learn the basics of mma too. Should I do he mma training and do weight lifting/ cardio outside the gym or should I do the crossfit then. Pick up mma when I get my body in better shape?

I've seen some schools with sloppy techniques which will most likely get you injured while doing your WOD. Good luck with your mma class.
Yeah, I figured too that I will probably get the most out of the mma class. I forgot that they do have a weightlifting class for the mma students, but it's scheduled at a weird time for me because I have work and class. I should be able to go twice a week though. If that doesn't work out, I'm just going to try to fit P90x into my schedule. That will be better than nothing.

Can you get an MMA trial? Seems like about 80-90% of people that start training in MMA (at least our gym) quit very quickly. It's not for everyone. It would suck to waste your money if it's not for you.

I think that MMA would get you in better shape, but I've never done cross fit so I can't really say. MMA is a lot more exciting than just working out though, for sure.

Yeah, I can get a trial. I'm down for it though. I've been an athlete all my life playing different sports, mainly football and track & field, but I've been out of practice for a couple of years with just working out and being active, generally speaking. MMA is one of the only options that truly interest me at this point.
