Podcast and Advanced Kettlebell Tutorial Video: Visit to NYC Part 3 - Checking in with Master RKC Phil Ross and Nykki Ross
There's so much material to share with you from the NYC trip that it's frankly kind of overwhelming at the moment...
However, seeing as the cat is out of the bag (oh Facebook...) on the fun and informative Master RKC Phil Ross and Nykki Ross, I wanted to share it here ASAP. To be fair, I didn't tell them that I usually upload to the site then wait until iTunes grabbed it before doing the promo. It does tell me though that they're subscribed to the , and ultimately that's what we want!!! :) But, even if you've already listened to the linked on this post (scroll below the video), keep reading here... especially since there's a video of Phil teaching me a really wild and advanced (try only at your own risk!) drill called the bottoms-up crescent swing.with father-daughter super-duo
Podcast with People Magazine's Sexiest Trainer Alive, and Inventor of Intrinsic Strength Training, Angelo Grinceri!
But FIRST! Here's how to do Angelo Grinceri's Intrinsic Strength Training Pull Ups!
One of the many reasons for this NYC trip was to meet up with some of the people I've been working with from a distance... and to talk them into podcasts when possible! Yesterday's meeting with Angelo Grinceri was a TON of fun. We’d already been babbling incessantly over Blue Bottle coffee, lamb salads, and Mast Brothers sheep’s milk chocolate–which was surprisingly and delightfully sheepy. Like sheep’s milk cheese and chocolate all at the same time. But when the conversation turned to grilled octopus I knew it was time to hit record… what follows is a rollicking conversation that traverses multiple subjects around more adventurous forms of health and fitness. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did! Keep watching for Angelo’s upcoming book with Publications, Intrinsic Strength Training.

Travel Log and Workout:Visit to NYC Part 1 - Traveling Rings--with Video, Kettlebell & Sandbag, and MORE!
It was time to get out of town... if I have to spend too much time in Florida, I get antsy and the humidity and lack of any real relief from the heat was beginning to really wear on me. So after some clicking around and a few emails I managed to put together a little trip that would allow me to keep working some on writing and my usual business client responsibilities as well as training small groups and individuals. There's still time to register for (Momentum Fitness NYC.
Sisterhood of the Traveling Rings... please note that the impressive young gymnast on the small rings is only on the small rings because I was using the large rings... pretty amazing!
Bonus Podcast! 2016 Kickoff Experiement - "Questions From Google" Kettlebells, Bodies, Bums, and Challenges
Bonus Podcast!!!!! Kicking off 2016 with a little retrospective of questions, phrases, and search strings that people have typed into Google... and then ended up on my site. Some are super important, some are silly (and yet still important at the same time). I had fun with this one.
Going to be hitting the road again very soon, and decided that it was as good of an excuse as any to test out the secondary audio recorder I have... it's small and very roadworthy, but I was concerned about sound quality. To my great and happy surprise, it recorded thiswith ease, low noise and at a very nice quality. It's earned a place in my bag for this trip, which is a great relief because the other recorder (which is great for pro audio and has XLR inputs and phantom power) is a bit clunky and conspicuous.
I'll be guest teaching at Momentum Fitness in NYC, and two classes are already waiting list only, so get over there and sign up now while you still can! People don't usually register this far in advance apparently so... click here to sign up for a selection of bodyweight, kettlebell, sandbag and metcon classes taught by yours truly at Momentum Fitness in the Upper West Side. I'm really looking forward to this... at the same time I'll also be talking to some industry icons, friends, gym owners, authors, and thinkers... brace yourself for the onslaught of awesome content soon!!!
Upcoming Progressive Calisthenics Certification (PCC) Workshops, Carry Over and Putting the "FUN" in Functional
First of all, I'm really pleased to announce that I'll be helping Al andat two upcoming 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:
- Progressive Calisthenics Certification, MN (April)
- Progressive Calisthenics Certification NYC (June)
It's an absolute joy to help Al and Danny out at these, 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
