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.

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.
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...

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.
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.

Max Shank: I think the Highland Games are really great, honestly. It's such a good outlet for someone who's built up a level of explosiveness from kettlebell swings. With just a little extra time in training, you can have a really good time competing. Everyone is really nice, and you're almost certain to be one of most in-shape people participating.
Steven Head: Playing baseball is my passion and the focus of my conditioning—almost everything in my own training is aimed at improving my conditioning for baseball. And, all of the HKC skills are essential for my strength, conditioning, and injury prevention. Even though I'm 55 years old and playing on a 25 and over team, I can keep up with my teammates and opponents. Many of them are half my age! I play second base, third base and shortstop.
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.

Beth Andrews: I started with small kettlebells, a 4kg and an 8kg—only 10lbs and 18lbs—but I was in total shock. I've been lifting for a long time as well as training people in a gym for years. It was hard to believe that a little bitty weight kicked my butt. After switching to just kettlebells for about eight months, I went back to bench press and found I could do sets of five with my previous max.
