GMB + PCC = Magic, The Kirsty Grosart Interview

As a kid I did competitive gymnastics from age six to nineteen, then took a break from it for most of my twenties. It wasn't until I bought my house and built a gym in the garage that I started doing bodyweight training again. It was mostly because I didn’t have much in the garage—I built a pull-up bar, had some mats, a set of p-bars and some rings.

How Mother of 4, Jessica Pino, Kills It with Kettlebells

Along with knowledge, I feel that a coach needs to be able to do all or at least some of what they are teaching.
