Oh My!

I attended a Battling Ropes certification with John Brookfield yesterday. All I can say is, "Whoa." I think John calls his system Battling Ropes because that's exactly what you do; battle. I think the ropes won. I can't remember the last time I have felt so "owned" by training. John told me most people find the ropes very humbling and he was right. I am humbled, but also excited. I have another great tool to use for my own training as well as my clients'. I'm excited to see what kind of body I can create with the use of kettlebells, ropes, and Z.

If you're interested, check out John at He is a great instructor and his Battling Ropes system will deliver a body capable of doing anything.

You just keep adding on great educational seminars to your belt of knowledge!

You're tool box is growing...nice job!

I have been using the ropes for the last 4 years but never have had the honor of taking John's Battling Ropes seminar.....I gotta take it next time he is out here in California!

Keep it rocking brother!

Franz! I'm just trying to take the advice you gave me and apply it. This is all your fault! I guess I'm due for more direction now. How are things?

Battling ropes looks like fun and if it kicked your butt, well then, it must be tough. New skill set. Check!-Kate

It was fun. And yes, it did kick my butt! I think it will my a great addition to the tool bag. Or, I just need to get tougher...

Awesome to hear you are applying it.You are for sure the BEST and most educated trainer in your town. You now know that and now just have to act that way and market yourself that way. Look at all the tools you have in your toolbag?

Call me when you get a chance!
