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  :)


My First Time Leading a Certification Workshop - Primal Move Winter Park Florida

Its no secret that I'm nuts about Primal Move.  Ever since being introduced to it in Seattle, I've enjoyed adding it to my small group's sessions, and exploring the movements at home. They've had a great effect on my own practice and have added infinite value to my CK-FMS knowledge. And while I was a little nervous to teach the first ever Primal Move Certification Workshop here in Florida—and the first certification workshop I have ever personally led—the awesome vibe of the people who showed up made it a total JOY. Which is really what Primal Move is all about.

Tough Love for the Kettlebell Clean Part TWO - a Practice Workout

Having just returned from the San Diego RKC, I had plenty of scribbled notes, new cues, and fun combos for my kettlebell small group class... and don't worry, Wednesday people, your time is coming! :)

One of the TOUGHEST kettlebell exercises to learn and to teach can be the clean.  But, it's incredibly worthwhile to persist with it, even though it can be frustrating.   I like to sandwich it into a workout to make sure the practice stays true without excessive frustration.

We started today's workout with a Primal Move inspired warm up,a few deadlifts and swings.  Moderate to light kettlebells were chosen so we could focus on our form.  

Short Report from RKC San Diego!

Another great RKC workshop has just come to a close in San Diego (surprisingly sunny even when it was overcast all day on Saturday*).  So many old and new friends were in attendence, that it was great to catch up and hear how everyone is doing in their training and in their lives.  Seriously, it was a veritable who's-who in the RKC and fitness industry...  Not to mention all the fun people in the general area who showed up to say hello, or to be "volunteer victims" during the teaching test of the weekend. 

Orlando HKC Experience - Testing, Making People Nervous (oops), and More! (Part 3)

Finally back to the last installment of the Orlando HKC Recap! We further worked on the Get Up, with a troubleshooting section.  People who felt like they had a problem somewhere with their get up volunteered to demo and have the HKC participants and instructors help them improve their form. It's fun to watch this learning process even as a helper AND it's a great time to pick up or refine coaching cues and tools. Of course, the most important thing is to make sure that everyone stays safe. If someone is going heavier than normal, or isn't feeling quite confident with a new kettlebell, it's important to learn how to spot someone in the get up.
