kettlebell-pics-034eight years ago today group kettlebell training launched in prince edward island. well, in atlantic canada.

this morning my day started at 6am with a private client’s hardstyle kettlebell training.

in between, there have been more than 3300 group kettlebell classes and workshops in my life and a juicy heart-thumping growth in the number of kettlebell coaches and kettlebell practitioners in eastern canada.

when i reflect on how much good and strong and laughter and friendship and sweat kettlebell has brought into my life, which is pretty much daily, i am grateful.

grateful for everyone who has coached me. in person and on line. your gifts have been treasured, repeatedly distilled,  and respectfully honoured.

grateful for everyone who has endured my coaching and truly graced my life by touching iron with me. your gifts have been selfless and are held near and dear.

grateful for kettlebell, who is a steadfast and humbling comrade. your gifts are enduring and finely nuanced and warmly worn.

cheers to you all for you are the kettlebell universe.

only to the extent that we expose ourselves over and over to annihilation can that which is indestructible in us be found.           ~ pema chödrön

kettlebell wow

 

enhance my life

i am quite excited to open the studio for COMPLIMENTARY workout time.

yes, it is sunday on the house!

it is sunday. sleep in. spoon a bit with someone warm and/or furry and/or virtual and/or reptilian — hopefully not all 4 at one and the same time. ewwww. sip a coffee. then get your relaxed backside out of bed and come sweat a sunday workout.

free-stuff

you know your inner fitness freak really wants to, so, how could it get any better??!

heck, bring your coffee with you and, yuppers, jammies really are workout wear!

the studio, there for your considerate and considered use, is:
– open to current clients and non-clients. you do not have to be a studio regular, past or present, or a private client to feel free to drop in
– all equipment will be available for use. well as long as you know how to use it and do so respectfully (you really don’t want to see my cringe-y face). kettlebells require specific instruction prior to on the house availability, so get in touch with me if you’d like some specific instruction
-workouts will be self-directed, that is, not led by an instructor, though i will be present and available for assistance if needed. also, if you’d like a workout template/program, i am willing to provide basics and progressions – you just need to request in advance

bebold1if there is interest, a sunday morning powerlifting group can be established. movement instruction and testing 1RMs would be done on specific dates and progression programs provided. let me know and we’ll set some dates.

and if you wonder why i’d open the studio door wide for most anyone, it is because the space is there and awesome and wants to be used. it is because you should be able to access stuff and space you need to enhance your fitness. it is because strong is good, very good indeed. it is because i need to get out of bed and travel into charlottetown one more morning a week. (if you can figure out which one of these reasons does not belong, i’ll buy you a coffee).

so, drop in. have fun. get fitter.

wsu0u1TDtmXqpEuzt2Hroo8kLs6PGX3S8lSWyLz-acEit is just short of 9 years — May 2006 — since i purchased my first set of kettlebells: three fat-handled glossy-painted cold cannon balls with handles. an 8kg, a 12kg, and a 16kg.

and so it began.

from books put out by Dragon Door, i began teaching myself kettlebell movements and began incorporating a bit of kettlebell training with personal training clients.

Agatsu Certification 2007

in late 2007 i attended my first certification course and learned so much! it was a heady weekend full of sweat, bruises, and total mind engagement. with this, my initial fascination converted into a passion, both to use and to share this unique and effective way of training.

after that first cert, i continued using the kettlebell as part of my personal training repertoire, but i also developed a group fx format with kettlebells which i eventually had opportunity to roll out.

today, january 28th 2015, is the 7th anniversary of the first group kettlebell class i offered.

since then, i have taught kettlebell skills in a group format and led group classes 2975 times.

and because kettlebell training has so many nuances and iterations, i have also since completed 6 additional kettlebell certification programs and attended/audited quite a few other kettlebell trainings, such as workshops and certifications courses.

kettlebell-pics-034the opportunities for learning are endless. there are at least 4 or 5 additional kettlebell certs i’d love to take. if the time is right, some of them will happen. i am happy to leave that to the future.

the kettlebell universe is an interesting and quickly expanding place, filled with all manner of passion, talent, commitment, skillful execution, amazing coaching, and creativity. it engages and pushes limits and evolves. this is what i most love about kettlebell training.

little did i imagine what would come of my fascination with kettlebells when i came upon them in a 2005 magazine spread. (you can read more on that here)

daily i am grateful for how kettlebell training has contributed to my life and that of my family and communities.

thank you to those from whom i have directly learned: Shawn Mozen of Agatsu, Ajamu Bernard and Drew Miller and Stephanie Yankovich of KBell Training Academy, Steve Cotter of Full KOntact Kettlebells, Sharon Shiner SFGII, Jason Dolby and John Buckley of Orange Kettlebell Club. and to the many, many who share top notch on-line resources which have contributed to my knowledge.

and so it continues.
