Franz Snideman, Senior RKC, Interview - kettlebells, leadership, motivation and more

Adrienne:

I am here today with Franz Snideman, Senior RKC, who was kind enough to take the time to answer a few questions.  Franz, how did you first discover kettlebells?

 Franz:

I first discovered kettlebells through my identical twin brother, named Keats Snideman.  He’s an RKC from Arizona.  I have always been into progressive new stuff in fitness, and in 2002, my brother said, “You’ve got to try these things called kettlebells.  They’re amazing.”  I bought a couple.  I was horrible at them.  I had no idea how to use them, and then in the fall of 2002, my clients and I found Pavel and we said, “This is the guy that we need to go learn from,” so we hired him.  We drove up to Santa Monica for a two hour private session with him at the Santa Monica beach.  It  literally changed the entire course of my career.  Pavel told me about his RKC certification, which was then probably only in its second year.  I think it started in ’01, maybe the end of 2000, so it was fairly new.  I took it in April of ’03 and the rest is history. 

In Case You Missed It! DragonDoor.tv

The new episode of DragonDoor.tv includes a video clip of me assembling Girya Girl Style Bacon Cheeseburger as the Dragon Dish! Enjoy the whole program though - DragonDoor.tv is always informative and entertaining. I met the host of the show,Amanda Salas, on the shuttle bus to the Orlando RKC site back in October. We had too much fun twittering back and forth and being silly - she's awesome!

The Girya Girl Kitchen - Bare Essentials

Here are the absolute basics, and linked to what I actually use with brand and size specificity etc. where appropriate.  This is a fairly basic list, as I tend to cook in a style that uses few specialized gadgets.  The food is "fancy" the prep tools don't have to be - they just need to be of high quality for maximum efficiency and enjoyment.

The Fountain of Youth?!

My 34th birthday is approaching rapidly this week.  In fact, I was expressing some excitement after one of my boot camp classes in that there would be a special "birthday workout" for them based around the number. Apparently, unbeknown to me, there has been intense speculation among a few boot campers as to my actual age. (Just ask me, ladies, it's all good - seriously, its just a number, I don't care!). AND their guesses were far far faaaaaar younger than I am. Which was flattering, interesting, and well, explains why I got carded for buying a regrettable white wine for cooking escargots (recipe forthcoming) the other day. That being said, the video clip below has inspired me to share some of my "secrets"
