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  :)

Interview

Franz Snideman, Senior RKC, Interview - kettlebells, leadership, motivation and more

Adrienne:

I am here today with Franz Snideman, Senior RKC, who was kind enough to take the time to answer a few questions.  Franz, how did you first discover kettlebells?

 Franz:

I first discovered kettlebells through my identical twin brother, named Keats Snideman.  He’s an RKC from Arizona.  I have always been into progressive new stuff in fitness, and in 2002, my brother said, “You’ve got to try these things called kettlebells.  They’re amazing.”  I bought a couple.  I was horrible at them.  I had no idea how to use them, and then in the fall of 2002, my clients and I found Pavel and we said, “This is the guy that we need to go learn from,” so we hired him.  We drove up to Santa Monica for a two hour private session with him at the Santa Monica beach.  It  literally changed the entire course of my career.  Pavel told me about his RKC certification, which was then probably only in its second year.  I think it started in ’01, maybe the end of 2000, so it was fairly new.  I took it in April of ’03 and the rest is history. 

Tim Shuman, RKCII Interviewed Sunday December 12, 2010

Adrienne Harvey, RKC:  So how did you first discover kettlebells?

Tim Shuman, RKCIII got a flyer from John DuCane. He sent me a flyer saying I can get Enter The Kettlebell and two 16Kilo kettlebells for about $109. And apparently he'd gotten my name off an e-mail list when I was using Pavel's bodyweight books, Power to the People, From Russia with Tough Love, those types of things.
