Upcoming Progressive Calisthenics Certification (PCC) Workshops, Carry Over and Putting the "FUN" in Functional

Group Photo from the First Ever PCC in Gothenburg Sweden

First of all, I'm really pleased to announce that I'll be helping Al and Danny Kavadlo at two upcoming PCC Workshops!   One in April in Minneapolis, MN (there's still time for you to register... don't miss it!) and the other in one of my favorite cities in the world, NYC!   While a sizeable discount still is in effect for the NYC one, there's a limited number of spots available (even though the workshop isn't until June!) so I'd suggest that if you're interested in going, you should try to sign up asap.   Below are direct links to the workshop details/registration pages:

It's an absolute joy to help Al and Danny out at these workshops, their enthusiasm is infectious and there's always some new little game-changers I pick up from them whenever we're in the same general area.   At some point about 30 seconds into the first day of the workshop, the mind-meld happens and you'll see amusing things start to happen like Al explaining something, while Danny and I demonstrate it from 2 different angles, or from 2 different difficulties.   Many times we don't rehearse that beforehand, a

SUPER Easy Pecan Crust Sweet Potato Pie - Paleo and Primal

Seriously easy, deceptively decadent, simple and delicious paleo/primal compliant sweet potato pie. And the crust can be used for other easy recipes like quiches, etc. I've even used to to make coconut custard pie recently too (recipe forthcoming I need to make some adjustments to it first)

Active Rest Can Be a LOT of Fun!

Dear Northern Friends,

Sorry to gloat about the good weather we are having this weekend, but it was so nice outside today that a friend and I decided to walk to a nearby park and set up our slacklines.  The very cool thing was also realizing that the next time, we could pick up picnic items on the way and really turn it into a day long outdoor fun time.  Can't complain about how it turned out though, and because I remembered that there were 2 additional pedestrian entry points to the park, the walk there was even more fun.   Walking through nature trails to reach slackline-friendly areas was a LOT than just streets and sidewalks...

Curating Reality for Happiness and Hyperproductivity

The absolute beginning of the biggest improvements in my adult life came when I started imagining not just what would be "good enough" but what would be "ideal".  Thing is, you can always scale back from the ideal, or work up to the ideal--but the act of thinking of the ideal at all can help (at least it helped me) remove some self-imposed barriers I had no idea even existed!   I was "driving with the parking brake on" so to speak.   And I think this is in some degree human nature, especially in "these trying economic times" etc.   But let's not limit ourselves...   The key to this exercise is

DVRT with Josh Henkin, Website Direction, a Little Challenge...

It's been a whirl-wind lately...

After learning more about Josh Henkin's DVRT system and Ultimate Sandbag during a recent photoshoot (Josh's DVRT book will be published by Dragon Door in April) I was intrigued to say the very least.   So this past weekend I braved the cold of NYC to attend the DVRT level 1 and 2 workshops right in the heart of Manhattan.  What a great trip!   I'll be doing a full write up of both days shortly, but wanted to let you know what's on the way.
