About the Author: Matt Furey started training his body to achieve maximum results when he was just a teenager in Carroll, Iowa. At that time he began training three days a week to get in condition for combat sports such as football and wrestling. Throughout his high school and collegiate wrestling career Furey recognized that weight training did not give him functional strength or endurance. He found that exercises without weights were better than anything else he was doing. Often referred to as calisthenics, his teammates belittled these efforts stating that they were outdated until he started winning wrestling titles.
Furey began studying various martial arts in 1990 and immediately saw the physical, mental and philosophical links these arts had with wrestling and penned his first book, The Martial Art of Wrestling. In 1999, Furey befriended 1948 Olympian Karl Gotch,, known as The God of Wrestling in Japan, who showed him that in spite of a national and world title in wrestling, in terms of conditioning, Furey had a long way to go. He credits Gotch for teaching him the fine art of conditioning and dedicates the book to him.
Furey wrote two additional books called Combat Abs and Gama Fitness along with other supportive materials and DVDs. Furey writes monthly columns for Inside Kung Fu and Karate (Japan). He has been featured in GQ, Black Belt, Grappling, Martial Arts & Combat Sports, Blitz, Martial Arts Illustrated and many other publications throughout the world. Matt and his family travel back and forth between their homes in Florida and Hainan Island, China.
