Podcast with Kirsty Grosart, World Class Handstand and Bodyweight Strength Expert, GMB Coach

I've noticed Kirsty Grosart's achivements and extreme skills for years online. It was a ton of fun to get her on the GiryaGirl.com podcast! Admittedly, I'm being super-self-serving by trying to get a whole bunch of tips to improve my handstand skills, but since I'm sharing it with you, that makes it ok, right?

This super fun episode is linked below for online listening via iTunes, Stitcher, and now fancy slideshow version on Youtube! (Which do you enjoy most? Please tell me in the comments section at the bottom of this post) I even made you show notes again. And again, let me know if that's something you enjoy or not (it's a lot of work, so if you don't care, please tell me!)

Slackline and Mace Experimental Challenge - Unconventional Outdoor Balance and Mobility Training [VIDEO]

It's that brief but magical time of the year in Florida where on a few days it is very nice outside. Soon, it will be unbearably hot, humid, and with afternoons full of steaming hot rain. BUT until that time, I try to get outside (in the shade at least) as much as possible.

Hawk approved balance and mobility outdoor workout

Yes, this is a silly graphic, but it's 100% true. I really enjoy observing the occasional bird of prey, and it is uncanny how many of my own workouts and those of the kettlebell small group are attended by a hawk. It's probably the time of day, but it still seems very special.

Slacklining is a great excuse to go out and play, and yesterday I decided to also take along my very cool mace from Stronger Grip.

Lots of Videos, Pull-Ups, Interviews, Monkey Bar Monday, Healthy Skoop, Sewing?!??

It's been fun to explore another part of the city a little, and I was thrilled to find that the fit trail on Lake Ivanhoe is well within a short walking distance of the coworking/makerspace. 

Monkey Bar Monday

Makerspace Coworking, Office Snacks, Offsetting Sedentary Work, Exercise Snacks, and a Vlog!

Parking Lot Kettlebell Workout

As many of you may have already gathered, even though I do train individual clients, help prospective RKCs, RKC-IIs, PCCs to prepare for workshops, lead a kettlebell and bodyweight focused small group class, teach occasional out of town classes/workshops, and when asked ALWAYS am happy to help teach a PCC workshop, training others is not the main thing I do "as a job". I kinda don't even like the word "job" as it implies a lot of negative things for people.  People think I work all the time, and well if I thought of what I do as "work" then they might be right. When I think about "work-life balance" it gets confusing, having been a small business owner since 1999 and choosing things which are more enjoyable and learning-based than drudgery.  Don't get me wrong there's been plenty of drudgery, it's not all ice cream and unicorns over here.  It's definitely not ice cream as I don't digest that stuff too well. 

But ANYWAY...

The FUTURE of Personal Training... Podcast with Rolando Garcia III, Author of Intrinsic Excellence

I've been friends with Rolando Garcia III for a while now, and we seem to have a fun tradition of meeting up for lunch and having great discussions whenever I visit NYC. While we decided to spare you the restaurant noises, we didn't want to deprive you of a podcast.  Considering that Rolando's book launched just a few days ago, it seemed more than appropriate to get this podcast out to you now.  It's linked below for online listening via iTunes, Stitcher, and now fancy slideshow version on Youtube! (Which do you enjoy most? Please tell me in the comments section at the bottom of this post) Testing some other new systems mean you actually get some SHOW NOTES this time! :) Hurrah!  Let me know if that's something you enjoy or not (it's a lot of work, so if you don't care, please tell me!)
