Eventually, I learned to step back even further within the basics. Now I really appreciate teaching the first steps to my beginner clients, because those were the same first steps that worked for me, too.

A common request after the HKC is, “Can you give me more workout ideas?” I think that there is a minimum effective dose for each movement of the HKC Three (swing, goblet squat and Turkish get-up).
In bobsled, I learned really quickly that people noticed when I showed up every day on time (or early), brought my best, did what was asked of me at a high level, and practiced and trained every day. Back in 2005, I was kind of fighting for my life with bobsled—it was a cutthroat pre-Olympic year.

Things have changed. Everyone knows it. It has been this way for quite some time, and yet it’s hard to admit. I didn’t want to admit it at first, until I let myself get used to the idea and the feelings I buried whenever these thoughts came to mind. Why don’t we face this change together and make sense of it all?

Whether it’s the flutter of our eyelids, the involuntary beating of our hearts, a kettlebell swing, or a gymnast’s full twisting backflip—movement is the signal that we are alive.
If I want to be awesome, what I am supposed to do? In what order should I do it? And how do I know I have achieved the end goal and fulfilled my purpose for that day? In other words, we cannot simply will ourselves into being awesome, inspiring, and full of self-belief. Instead, these qualities are the results of clear, dedicated, and committed action.
A kettlebell doesn’t lie. As silly as it sounds, you have to respect it, and you need to have full body awareness. If you want to get the full, safe benefits of the kettlebell, you must learn to understand your body.
I often joke to my audience that they’re “sitting on a goldmine.” The glutes might be the most important muscles in the body, but until recently, many have ignored this muscle family. The glutes are the foundation of power and the fountain of youth. Healthy glutes show the world you are young, vibrant and virile.
I’ve been a dancer my entire life. I started when I was two because my mom thought it was cute. As the youngest of five children—I was 13 years behind my last brother—my mom also probably wanted me out of the house! I was primarily a ballet dancer until I went to school at Julliard where I had more of a contemporary dance focus.

The PRT acronym derives from the Navy’s Physical Readiness Test administered biannually to all of its personnel. Each branch of the military has a program designed to keep all sailors, soldiers and airmen fit for duty. We organized the KETTLE PRT to provide this sort of meaningful challenge to the civilian world, not only for people like Steve but also for trainers like us. Our friends and family needed this push to rediscover their motivation.
