Well, in 2 weeks our training studio is open for business. We've been doing lots of painting and preparing. If you live around Fuquay-Varina (few-kway Va-reena), come by and check us out.

Over the last month I've spent a good deal of time training at a large fire department in NC. We introduced kettlebells and battling ropes to the fire fighters. 2 great tools for preparing fire fighters for the physical demands of their job. Anyway, its been a lot of fun working with those guys and showing them the ropes!

As for my own training, I've been doing well. That is to say, I haven't been in pain in a very long time and my sessions seem to be productive and effective. Which is nice... So yes, lots of Z and kettlebells. Been doing double kettlebell workouts for a while. I'm hoping it will make me extra prepared for the RKC cert coming up in April. I need to recertify!

Thats about it.

Geoff Neupert is trying to kill me!

For those of you who don't know Geoff, he is a big, strong man with a ton of knowledge and experience when it comes to training. Geoff has kind of been helping me with my own training and I've decided that he is actually trying to kill me. My sessions are short, sweet and inflicting I like the short and sweet part; it's the inflicting part that keeps getting to me. After only 10 to 15 minutes of kettlebell'n, I need a whole day (sometimes 2 days) to recover.

Ain't it cool? 10 to 15 minutes of pure effort, then a day of rest. Its that simple. Results? I'm leaner and stronger. And the best part is I get to eat more!

I wonder why so many people spend over an hour in the gym? I also wonder if those same people actually perform 10 to 15 minutes of pure effort inside that hour? Hmmm...
