First off, there's way too much for one blog post (there's such a backlog over here that it's not even funny). The NYC PCC was last weekend at Crunch gym's flagship location in the middle of Manhattan (and next to part of the NY Marathon, too!)

This past weekend, we wrapped up another fantastic PCC Workshop. And yet again, we had an incredibly accomplished group in attendence... it's funny how the bodyweight crowd is just a little different, but incredibly atheltic too.

Before we get started with the Q+A I wanted to share a couple things, first off, I've enjoyed slacklining for a while now, but am always reminded of the very important lesson from when I first started trying it -- it really REALLY did seem impossible, but after trying and trying and trying and trying it finally happened.

Everyone was a friend--it was like we had already known each other for years (not even because of … [Read more...] about Just Got Back from the First EVER PCC Workshop in Sweden!
