Come to the 1-Day Strength Calisthenics Certification in Houston

Come to the Houston, TX SCC (Strength Calisthenics Certification) workshop I'm leading in April! It's a ONE day, entry level version of the PCC (Progressive Calisthenics Certification) and we're cramming a LOT into these one day events. SCC is especially useful for those of us who work with beginners and everyday athletes who aspire to build a STRONG foundation for all their activities, sports, etc. You'll learn how to use and teach powerful calisthenics exercises which do not require a gym or special equipment. If you are a trainer who is highly mobile or does in-home training, then absolutely check this out... Imagine showing up with maybe a mat and not much else... and delivering INSANE results for your clients/students. Let me show you how!!! See you in Houston - Click here to sign up today!

Chicago RKC Day 3 - Marketing, Testing, Networking... Getting Victimized!

The third and final day of any given RKC workshop is always intense - and the last day is always very emotional for most people.  You may have read my account of the Orlando RKC 2011 - and the last day there was certainly no exception to this emotional experience. 


Chicago RKC Day Two Recap

Writing to you from the midst of the 2nd day of the Chicago RKC certification workshop - hanging with DragonDoor.TV's Amanda Salas and getting her hooked on my rapidly disappearing stash of Green & Black's 85% cacao chocolate.  We are having a great time and getting a ton of important interviews.  There are so many impressive and inspiring people involved with this community - and not just those in leadership - the participants themselves all bring an amazing amount of experience, practice and diligence. 

Unintended New Skill Learned from the RKC Workshop: Extreme Time Management

You've heard "timing is everything" before, it's a cliche, but sometimes holds true in certain situations - especially crazy ones.  I'm going to share a few of my time management strategies for dealing with things like quick move outs, root canals, busted transmissions, selling and buying a car, learning to drive stick then relying on it immediately, and then singing in front of over 2,000 people.   RKC style kettlebell training can help you with all these things, especially when all of the events listed in the previous sentence happen to you almost simultaniously.
