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  :)

PCC Instructor

Podcast with Annie Vo, RKC Team Leader, PCC Instructor, NYC-Based Trainer, Strength Expert

I'm super embarrassed about how long it's taken to get this GREAT episode prepared and ready to share with you.  Annie Vo and I had an absolutely STELLAR call and while I want to include extensive show notes with this one, the thought of keeping it from you for one more day was just too painful!  Annie is a fantastic instructor, leader, and fellow seeker of strength. I am very grateful that I got to know her even better at the most recent PCC Workshop we had in NYC. Not only is she a very experienced trainer, she has a background in philosophy, logic, and thought.  All of this comes together in her approach with her own training and with her guidance of others.

There's some powerful nuggets in this podcast and I hope you enjoy it... there's even mention of Socrates! :)

Alternately, you can listen on Stitcher or iTunes :)

Some Real Health and Fitness Game Changers From Recent Interviews and More of My Backstory

I recently interviewed Errick McAdams for DragonDoor.com - working on these interviews is one of my absolute favorite "tasks".  Getting to know and share these success stories is incredibly rewarding, and I always look forward to learning more about other people drawn to the HKC, RKC and PCC.  The stories are varied as everyone starts from a different point -- some have always been athletic and played team sports in high school and/or college, others like Maggie Fazeli Fard, the Senior Fitness Editor of Experience Life Magazine discovered their athleticism as an adult.

Not many of you know this, but I really began fitness in earnest at about age 30.  While I'd been very aware of gyms, and had lifted weights (freeweights and machines) at Gold's all summer every summer home from college starting in 1996, before trying all manner of "womens workouts" most of which were based on the bodybuilding model we had back then. They worked to a point... and I probably didn't know what I was doing much either... But I wasn't getting the "shape I wanted" at the time.  And well, unless it was summer and too hot to be outside, I must admit I was bored.  So, I tried other things for several years with limited success. (Some of which--bellydancing--would make for some amusing "throwback Thursday" material for sure.)
