Today is the Spring Equinox, which means that winter is officially over and spring finally begins. This season has long been recognized as the time for renewal and rebirth. It is a wonderful time to declutter personal spaces, revisit your current goals and clear space for progression.
March Madness is here! While some people are going crazy over the NCAA tournament, we are getting geared up for the Pan Jiu-Jitsu IBJJF Championship in Irvine, CA. This is one of the largest U.S. gatherings of Jiu Jitsu amateurs and professionals each year. As one of the sponsors for the event, the Zebra Athletics team will be there, so keep a look out for some familiar faces (including one well known Jiu Jitsu celebrity!).
We recently celebrated our 20th anniversary by reflecting back on where we started as a company, how we got to where we are today and where we are going next. Over the years we have grown not only as a company, we have become a pioneer in the MMA and Martial Arts industries.
We are so grateful to be a part of these communities, and as we continue to expand our yoga flooring and product lines, we look forward to becoming an inspirational part of the worldwide yoga community, as well.
Less than two weeks until the official start of Spring! But don’t wait until the spring cleaning season to start keeping your equipment clean. This is something that all facility owners and managers should be on top of at all times.
Properly cleaning your training equipment will not only protect you and your students from illness, it can extend the life of your MMA mats and will make your facility a place where people want to train. When it comes to running a business, image, particularly first impressions, is a huge component to growing and maintaining sales.
Make sure your facility is a clean, healthy and safe place to train by following these tips.
Zebra Athletics is turning 20 years old! We are looking back on where we started, how we became the successful company we are today and where we are going next.
Here’s the story as told by Our CEO, Chuck Blanski.
Are you looking to explore your yoga practice from a different angle? Or perhaps you’re hoping to do something more than dinner and a movie on Valentine’s Day? If so, partner, or acro-yoga, is for you, and the Valentine’s ‘season’ presents the perfect opportunity to try it out with a friend or significant other.
Chances are good that this time of year, and no matter where you live, there is a studio or two in your area that is offering a partner or acro-yoga workshop that will match your experience level – even if you have you don’t have any!
At Zebra Athletics, we provide MMA, martial arts and tactical owners with all the mats, pads, bags, cages and everything else they need to make their facilities a success.
One of our most recent customers was an incredible facility, 4M Fitness.
Last year, we met new people, launched new products and made some great new friends, a few of whom have really helped us better understand our brand’s presence in the yoga community and how we can be a more active member of it!
This year, we are excited to continue building our network of friends and expand the lineup of amazing products and services we offer to yoga studios and at-home practitioners.
Here are a few things that you can look forward to in 2017:
Open any MMA publication and you will not only find countless advertisements for MMA mats and training gear, but for health supplements like bars, powders, pills, gels, shakes and drinks as well. Supplements are a lucrative business that can help you increase profits at your facility, but deciding whether or not to offer supplements, and which supplements to offer, can be a daunting task.
One of the most commonly asked questions regarding our MMA and martial arts mats is, “what makes them different than other types of mats?” Customers also ask, “why are your mats more expensive than your competitors?”
There are several different answers to each of those questions, but at the center of it all is the amazing core within our mats.
