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. 


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!)

Whew! So Much Going On! Here's a Recipe and a Workout

Q: "When do you sleep?" A: "That's classified."

Way too excited about pink salt and kelp granules!
I was way too excited about these ingredients at 1AM while making this video...

I was a guest on the Red Delta Project Podcast, Plus a Bodyweight Only Workout, and a Video

The Red Delta Project PodcastA few days ago I had the honor of being the first ever guest on PCC Team Leader, Matt Shifferle's Red Delta Project Podcast. Once again, as when he was recently the guest on MY podcast, we had a ton of fun discussing some of our favorite topics, calisthenics, the PCC, great food, training strategies and more.

At the risk of bragging, it seems like we get around to some pretty powerful stuff in conversations. Hope you enjoy this episode titled "Tackling Bodyweight Training with Adrienne Harvey"! And did I REALLY divulge a fat loss tip? Yes indeed!

Listen to The Red Delta Project Podcast on iTunes, Stitcher, or directly from his website.

Shortly after he attended the PCC quite a while ago, I interviewed Matt for Dragon Door and instantly realized how creative, cool, and skilled Matt is, so be sure to check out his extensive website, podcast, and substantial YouTube channel!

Let's Train in Austin! (2 Fitness Certifications in 1 Weekend!)

SCC and HKCLet's train together in Austin, Texas! The Dragon Door SCC (Strength Calisthenics Certification) and HKC (HardStyle Kettlebell Certification) are both coming to Austin in February 2017. You can do one or take maximum advantage--and save more $--by doing both. Hope to see you there. These two one-day workshops are great for trainers looking to upgrade their toolkit, or serious exercise enthusiasts who want to fine-tune their own training.
