Rings of Power by Mike GIllette

Rings of Power by Mike Gillette Cool new book from Mike Gillette about Ring Training for all fitness levels. Being on this shoot with Mike was like working with a real live action hero! (And I got to put a cinderblock on him too!) Mike knows his stuff and shares everything you need to know for his versatile go-anywhere ring training.  Full progressions of every exercise, workout plans, and all the know-how to take the training as far as you wish. Good stuff, and yes, that's me on the left side of the cover  :)

A "Meet the Instructors" Style PCC Video! The Next Progressive Calisthenics Certification Workshop is FAST Approaching!

Here's another fun video from DragonDoorTV that lets you meet the instructors—Al Kavadlo, Danny Kavadlo, Steven Low, and me! Really glad that the ultra-skilled Dragon Door TV Team of Amanda and Spencer were able to get that one-arm-flex-hang shot in one take because those get difficult pretty quick! Anyway, check out the video and if you are interested in becoming a PCC Instructor, or if you just want to take your own calisthenics training to the next level as a serious enthusiast, then sign up for one of the upcoming PCC Workshops right away. We have one coming up this month and would love to see you there! I've been working on my skills so that I can be as helpful as possible... and I know the Al and Danny are constantly honing their skills and coaching skills too. While the video is super exciting, it still can't capture the full excitement, enthusiasm, and extreme learning that happens at a PCC.

What do Personal Trainers, Strength Coaches, Federal Agents, and Breakdancers Have in Common?

The answer of course is a love of Progressive Calisthenics!   This past weekend was the first ever PCC (Progressive Calisthenics Certification) Workshop, and I'm still honestly just reeling in joy with how well it went.   We all had high expectations - as instructors, as participants etc.   But I can safely say that everyone's expectations were exceeded.   I was honored to be an instructor (as a PCC Team Leader) along with Al Kavadlo, Danny Kavadlo, and Steven Low.  When a workshop is brand new like this, you never really know how it's going to go until you start it up.  It was very clear as soon as we got going that this one was going to blow the roof off.  Al and Danny set a tone of friendly leadership that was so natural that it was a sheer joy to support them.  I told Al at one of our instructor meeting dinners (we may have collectively eaten a small farm over the weekend, by the way.  There might be a lamb shortage in MN for a few weeks) that with the leadership tone he set, helping to instruct the highly motivated group felt nearly effortless.   Order was easily maintained because everyone really wanted the info.  Not to mention all the highly valuable comments, cues, and experiences which were contributed by the participants themselves.   I'm confident to say that EVERYONE, myself included has come away from this weekend a better instructor than just a few days ago.
