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  :)


As Promised! The "Heavy Stuff" Kettlebell workout recap video!

Here's the video that goes with the previous blog post.   Yes, we are so into this stuff that it's what we do on the weekends, this was on Sunday afternoon and we were having a blast :)



So yes, be careful, or I'll come to town and dye your Mom's hair pink and draw kettlebells on her cast! (To be fair, she asked me to help with both of those).   AND there's more video on the way - we make a mess in the kitchen and Laurel tries to keep a straight face when I tell her how many calories we're drinking.   Coconut Milk Hot Chocolate Wooooooo!!!!!

Q&A With Sharon Shiner, HKC and Personal Chef with a Fitness Focus

Sharon Shiner and I are twitter friends, and through one conversation or another started talking about kettlebells and food (imagine that?!)   I found out more about her -and her HKC certification, her passion for kettlebell fitness, cooking, etc and just HAD to start asking questions.   Here's our email conversation for you to check out!


Adrienne: You earned your personal chef degree in 2007 and have quite the collection of certifications and memberships.  What's your advice for someone interested in becoming a Personal Fitness Chef?

Gift Guide for the Kettlebell Enthusiast in Your Life

It's notoriously difficult and probably annoying to shop for someone like me.   If I really really want something, that means I may have already purchased it, or its so exorbitantly expensive that I'd never even think to ask anyone for it.  Ever.   Pair that with the fact that for over a year I've been systematically getting rid of anything extraneous*, am excessively particular about what I'll voluntarily wear/eat/use and it's usually gift card city for me at Christmas.   Which is frankly, just fine with me!   Not going to send my relatives on wild goose chases, or request that they send me frozen Ostrich tenderloin (that would be really great, actually), or that one of a kind bag in the window of the local artists store that looks

Girya Girl Newsletter #3

Hello everyone - its been a while, but it's been pretty wild around here so we have a bit of catching up to do!   First off, if you haven't received your 10 Primal/Paleo recipes from me in exchange for signing up, please reply to this email and let me know.   There's some good ones on there that you might get just in time for Thanksgiving!

If you haven't been on the site for a while the first thing you may notice is that there are more tabs on the main menu - Workshop Experiences, Guest Spotlight, and Beyond Organic menu items have been added.  Nothing has been deleted from the site, so if you are looking for the Orlando RKC workshop journal for example, it can now be found under the "Workshop Experiences" tab.

RKC-related interviews by Adrienne Harvey of published Elsewhere

I've had some fantastic opportunities to meet some amazing people in the fitness community this year - and these interviews capture the essence of these conversations, dialogs, etc.   I have literally come away from every interview with game changing information.  Hope that you enjoy them too - as they are published around the 'net they'll be cataloged here.   Right now most of them are Dragon Door related, but who knows what the future may hold!   Are you an important person in the strength and fitness community?  Have we talked?  Do we need to talk?   Let me know!   Listening to and capturing these insights and experiences has not only been fun, but I've already been incorporating the knowledge into my own training and t
