In response to the current global COVID-19 pandemic, all Wimp 2 Warrior programs and payments are currently paused until further notice. When the world overcomes its current challenges, as it inevitably will, we will be ready to take our Warriors through the remaining steps of this special journey.
If you are a current competitor and have any questions, please contact us. If you want to hear the latest updates on the status of our programs, please follow us on Facebook and Instagram, or pre-register your interest in an upcoming series. We will all be back soon, stronger than ever before.
The fees for the 20-week W2W Challenge will differ depending on the country of the series currency. Please see the below table for a general pricing structure. Please click the below link to view our full pricing structure including payment plan details.
Included in your fees is more than 100 tailored sessions designed to have you ready for your fight at finale as well as nutritional advice, a bespoke Wimp 2 Warrior fight uniform and protective equipment (this includes shin guards, 16oz boxing gloves, 8oz MMA gloves and hand wraps) and access to your private competitor forum.

We have had many people who decided to complete W2W even though doing so was stretching the absolute limits of what was financial possible for them. Ultimately those people decided they couldn’t put a price on their health and their mental and physical well being. A really helpful exercise many of them went through was to ask themselves some of the following questions;
How much do I spend each week on coffee, sandwiches, takeaway/takeout meals?
How much am I spending each week on alcohol?
Do I have a gym membership I’m not presently using?
How much money would I pay right now to be in the best mental and physical shape of my life?
All these questions help clarify for so many of our Warriors how much money they will save by adopting a new lifestyle and thus so many have told us at the end of the 5 months they actually had more money than before they paid for W2W.
When you consider the value of the equipment, the fight uniform and the nutrition resources and you divide the remaining cost of the program by 100 sessions, then the per session cost is actually equivalent to that of a boot camp or some other campaign based program. Considering you’re being trained by high level coaches and learning the skills you’ll need to fight in just 5 months then the value is pretty amazing!
We have kept W2W fees as low as practicable whilst not cutting corners on the level of service you will receive from us and your coaches throughout the full duration of the program, whilst still providing competition rated equipment, fight uniform and high quality nutritional guidance and resources.
Lastly, what we know without any doubt is that thousands of Warriors throughout the world have said that completing W2W is one of the best things they have ever done. So if you’re sincere about investing in yourself and creating the healthy habits, mental strength, self confidence and a lean body that represents the very best version of you then we have a flexible payment plan to help you achieve all of this over 5 months!
Included in the price is more than 100 tailored sessions designed to have you ready to compete at Finale in 20 weeks time as well as nutrition guidelines, a bespoke Wimp 2 Warrior uniform, access to your private Competitor forum and protective equipment pictured below:
Fear of failure, fear of embarrassment, sometimes even fear of success, these are common and normal emotions. Every gym that hosts a W2W season is thoroughly checked and prepared to ensure they offer a supportive and welcoming environment. This is central to our ethos, when you join Wimp 2 Warrior, you join a family that is here to help. This is why in our social media you’ll always see #W2Wfamily
The Tryouts are nothing more than a good workout which is FREE! It's a chance for the Coaches to meet those that have applied and put a face to the name to ensure they have a great bunch of humans to take on the journey. All they are looking for on the day is heart, provided you go along there’s every chance you will be selected to participate in the program.
You've already done the hardest part by submitting your application to us and booking in for Tryouts! Many don't even get to that far. Tryouts are not scary, we understand it can be nerve-wracking and slightly intimidating, especially if you've never stepped foot in a Martial Arts Gym before!
We assure you, once you get to the gym, and see yourself surrounded with ordinary people just like you, looking for that extra something from a training program, you'll be just fine!
You'll be welcomed with open arms by the Coaching staff and most of all you'll have a fun workout and will no doubt make some new friends too!
Training times that are set are compulsory for The Warrior Training Program. This is to ensure that all Competitors train progressively through the techniques and conditioning elements of the program at the same time and pace. The Warrior Training Program has been built and refined over a 6 year period to build incrementally session upon session so that the foundations are created to accelerate your learning. Further this is to ensure that ALL our competitors have built the requisite skill base to compete safely and competently in an amateur MMA bout at finale.
Lastly, in order that your match up be as fair as possible, our coaches need to observe you training, rolling and sparring with others in the program in order to pick the best and most competitive match ups. W2W is a very special journey and one of the best parts is the lifelong friendships that are built along the way, hence the reason you’re only able to compete if you can train at the specified times.
From time to time during the course of a 5 month W2W training program it is inevitable that work demands will mean that some sessions will be missed. The most important thing to ensure during these occasions is that you communicate openly and transparently with your coaches so that they may set you some “ homework” in terms of making up for the odd session that you may miss. It’s inescapable however that each competitor must be personally accountable for their own attendance and commitment to training.
Completing this journey is hard. That’s the point. It’s hard because you’re doing something extraordinary to prepare for something truly extraordinary, your first MMA bout! So the only way you will reap the full benefits of the program and reach your full potential is by staying accountable and maximising your attendance. In our experience many work colleagues and bosses will be very supportive of you taking such a bold challenge and will be there on finale night to cheer you on in your fight! So communicate openly and clearly with coaches and employers alike and it will all work out well!
The training program runs for 20 consecutive weeks, and are usually early morning training sessions between one hour and 90 minutes Monday through to Friday. For the first few weeks of any training program you will have a rostered ‘recovery day’ meaning no training that morning. This is to ensure our Competitors don’t overdo it in the first few weeks whilst your bodies are adjusting to the early wake up calls and your new training routine. We encourage all of our Competitors to attend as many of the scheduled sessions as possible, not only for your own good of developing that Warrior mindset but by being accountable you are there to support your fellow teammates on the mats each day. You become a training partner and a student and by doing so you become the very best version of YOU. Inevitably there will be a need to miss a training session due to sickness or perhaps you have a pre-booked holiday, this is generally fine as long as your Coaches are aware of any time away. Be upfront about your reasons for non-attendance and the Coaches will be flexible and happily work out alternate arrangements for you.
In these cases we always advise you to go along anyway. Even if you’re unable to actively participate, the primary purpose of tryouts (aside from the free workout!) is to get to know your Coaches, check out the facility and meet some amazing people keen to embark on the same journey as you! Depending of the nature of your injury or how far you are into recovery, you have the opportunity to speak personally with the highly trained Coaches running the Warrior Training Program to determine your ability to commence training. We’ve had countless people make modifications to the work they can do during the 5 months and still make it all the way through to fight at finale.
The key is to meet your coaches and commence dialogue regarding any physical impediments you believe you may have as our coaches have the knowledge to adapt your training in order to avoid further damage or aid your recovery. Of course it is always our explicit recommendation that you speak with your doctor regarding all matters that relate to your health.
There are 84,600 seconds in a day, it's what you do with them that counts. People often think they don't have time or are put off by the early starts. We’ve seen time and again in our testimonials that one of the biggest benefits is transforming to become a "morning person”. Add to this supporting factors like improved diet and motivated coaches, trust us when we say you’ll feel more energised and with more time than before!
We welcome a range of potential competitors, from absolute beginners through to BJJ blue belts or even higher in other forms of martial arts. On this basis we encourage everyone to attend tryouts and to meet and speak with the coaches. Every person who attends tryouts will be considered as a potential Competitor on a case by case basis. The only instance where someone is immediately ineligible is where they have previously competed in a sanctioned MMA bout as this is deemed too significant an advantage against others who’ve never competed before. So whilst you may be skilled to some extent in Muay Thai, BJJ, wrestling or boxing, we are very confident that the syllabus the Warrior Training Program offers in MMA will provide enough variation and diversity such that our coaches will always be able to create the most fair and even match ups.
Naturally some Competitors will pick up some techniques more quickly than others, hence is the beauty of Mixed Martial Arts. Rest assured however should you make it all the way to fight at Finale, you will only ever be matched up against someone of comparable skill, fitness and experience to yourself. The fairest possible matchmaking is at the very heart of the integrity of our program and our company.
Rest assured you won't be thrown into the series Finale without the appropriate training. Our program is carefully built to ensure your fitness, skills and mental strength are all grown properly before any live drills are introduced. Sparring and grappling commences at a light intensity and builds naturally over the duration of the program. So while you’ll at times feel nervous and tested, the contact is also something you’ll feel ready and eager to do.
This is a contact combat sport, bumps and bruises will happen. This program has been designed with Competitor safety at the forefront. It’s created to strengthen your body and whilst there are lots of basic technical movements to learn, you will slowly progress to higher stages of training as you get stronger in order to minimise any injuries.
The Finale is a professionally sanctioned amateur mixed martial arts event in the celebration of the completion of 22 weeks training, where Competitors compete for the first time in front of a huge crowd of family, friends and colleagues. This is a massive highlight and bucket list experience for everyone at the conclusion of their W2W journey!
The whole point of W2W is to provide a platform where men and women get the opportunity to step outside their comfort zone and do something so beyond what you thought previously possible. The Finale at the end is ultimately the graduation, it’s the point of true empowerment and a chance to really prove to yourself that with the right determination and motivation you really can do anything. With Competitor safety at the forefront of all of our programs if the coaches feel a Competitor is not ready either physically or mentally, they will not be put forward to compete in the finale. If you do not feel comfortable with the thought of taking part in the finale you will not be asked to do so. It’s 100% up to you.
