Interview by Adrienne Harvey, PCC TL, RKC II, CK-FMS, Primal Move Nat'l Instructor

Jason Kapnick: The RKC community has left many clues about its very successful training methodology. I've wanted to do the RKC workshop for at least four years. When it comes to movements like a pistol, I just had to fix the weakest link, because my body could already handle the strength aspect of it. The RKC principles have been a big part of what I’ve been doing for the past year and half.

Jon Bruney: I’ve always been a good speaker because I’m also a pastor. NeuroMass isn't just about athletic training—it’s about training the whole person, mind, body, and diet. Everybody can benefit from that. I think athleticism comes from practicing different styles of movement at the same intensity during a workout. Neuro-Mass is something totally unique and new, it’s not a re-read of old stuff.

Get primed for Primal Move with Jen Sinkler: It’s in that spirit where the real magic happens. What had originally piqued my interest in the course was its emphasis on play and the pure, unadulterated joy of animation. “Primal Move is about being happy and enjoying movement again, as we did when we were kids. We did not think about fat burning and muscle building, plyometrics and periodization,” writes Peter Lakatos, founder of the Primal Move program. “We did not even feel like we were training

Danny Kavadlo: I got started with fitness when I was about 11 years old. My older brother was a big influence. (Al's my younger brother.) We started with all the basics, push-ups, pull-ups, sit-ups—even though I don’t do sit-ups now—and progressed into dips, squats, etc. We really got into it in a noncompetitive way, essentially we just wanted to get stronger and improve ourselves physically. At the time we didn't know any other ways to go about it. When I got a little bit older...
Elliot Hulse: I'd watch him (Elliot's uncle) do standing back flips, all kinds of calisthenics, and chop bricks with his hands in my parents' basement. He was literally like superman.We became some of the best athletes in our elementary and middle schools growing up.
I developed what I now call the Four Layers of Strength. When you maximize all four layers, you can truly become the strongest version of yourself.

Matt Beecroft: On a whim I jumped on a plane for 28 hours from Australia and did the RKC workshop without any formal training. Now, I train an eighty-four year old with Parkinson’s, guys who are prepping to fight in the ring, and everyone in between. Lawyers, dentists, professionals, trainers—it's a big cross-section .The kettlebell is an amazing tool, but what grabbed me was the leadership, coaching, and the system of the RKC that surrounds the kettlebell.
Andrea Du Cane: Working with kettlebells is also incredibly empowering. Introducing women to kettlebells was a big goal of mine. Then as I started working with de-conditioned populations I realized how much kettlebell training could change people’s lives.

People train for all kinds of reasons. Health, functionality or vanity is usually at the top of the list. My own training goals are a bit different. I perform strength stunts. I use this term as an umbrella under which such things as steel-bending, brick and board breaking and a myriad of other feats which can involve electricity, fire or

Well, when it comes to your abs, how tough are you, really?
Do you just have a pretty-boy six pack—all show and no real go when it comes to handling impact?
Or do you have the kind of snarly strength that can withstand 3 tons of impact force slamming into your midsection?
Dragon Door’s new author, Mike Gillette, has exactly that kind of strength—and proved it recently to the world, through Ripley’s Believe It Or Not...

Joseph Morstad: With my IBD flare and hospital visit in January of this year, I was unable to eat, incredibly weak, and fatigued. When I came back I started with parts of the Turkish get up. I'd start on my back rolling to pressing the kettlebell overhead. Core and glute exercises were very helpful. Passing the RKC in August showed me that I was strong. I really believe that experience stayed with me and helped me through my IBD recovery in January of this year.
