Got Snatch?

Before you get upset, it’s not what you think. The Hybrid Fitness Got Snatch? shirt has been a huge success. We “unofficially” released the shirt at a strength and conditioning seminar in Los Angeles and they were very well received.


The idea is the brainchild of our very own Liam Bauer. He got the idea almost a decade ago and thought it would make a great shirt idea. He was right. The shirts turn up in all sorts of locations, most recently at a New York Mets game. We ask anyone who purchases a Got Snatch? shirt to send us a pic of it being worn…wherever, whenever.


The snatch logo tied the design all together. The logo is an original design. It’s simple enough but we think it works pretty well. Best of all, it’ll be the subject of several other pieces of gear to arrive in the near future. Stay tuned to the blog and, of course, to for more information.

We’d rather use this blog as a forum for letting our readers know about new developments and happenings at Hybird Fitness. If you’re interested in purchasing a shirt, drop us a line here: Got Snatch? T-Shirt and we’ll get you set up.

Card PT – Taking the fitness world by storm!


Card PT is the brainchild of the founders of Hybrid Fitness and bodyweight conditioning specialist Wanyne “Scrapper” Fisher. Card PT is comprised of 5 basic templates which allow the user to create his or her own workouts. It’s the easiest way possible to create your own, totally original workouts.


The concept is simple . Take a deck of cards and deal a hand. It could be 5 cards, 1o cards…whatever you choose. Each card pertains to a specific exercise and repetition number on the template. You can choose to use one template or multiple templates. The number of possible workout combinations is almost impossible to calculate. The templates are designed to accommodate anyone, from the beginner to even the most conditioned athletes.


The best best part about Card PT is that it takes the guesswork out of training by providing the exercises for you, then constantly varying the order. You never know what you’re going to get from one workout to the next.



Card PT will challenge you, reward you and, most importantly, improve your fitness. Give it a shot. Click here for more information.

Good luck and keep training hard!
