Train for LIFE!
A few years ago, in April 2015, I was seated in the exit row on a plane on the way back from teaching my workshop “I Am Not Afraid To Lift” in Albuquerque, New Mexico. After I sat down on the plane I looked up to read what I would have to do in case of an emergency and discovered that I would have to lift the airplane door that weighed 22kg (~50lbs). I was so excited because I press and pull 22kg in my training on a regular basis for reps so I knew that would be no problem. (22kg presses shown in the video below…)
As Bret Contreras says, “If you think lifting weights is dangerous, try being weak. Being weak is dangerous.”
It’s so important for us to have purposeful strength, as strength is freedom in that it builds confidence and independence and helps us to be strong enough so that we are capable of completing challenging physical tasks on our own.
Learn how to build the strength and skill so that YOU TOO can lift and press the weight of an airplane door over your head in the case of an emergency, or even TWO doors (~100lbs) FOR REPS at my StrongFirst Kettlebell Course on October 29, 2017 Barbell Republic in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The deadline to register for this course is October 27, 2017.
This course is appropriate for both fitness professionals and fitness enthusiasts as well as an excellent pre-requisite if you are preparing to attend your StrongFirst Level I Kettlebell Certification.I will teach the following fundamental kettlebell movements.*

(*Although not part of the Kettlebell Course set curriculum, if time, I will also cover the one arm kettlebell swing and single kettlebell clean and how a solid clean pertains to the set up of a strong kettlebell military press.)
I will also cover hardstyle, diaphragmatic power breathing as it relates to optimal results with kettlebell training, as well as programming and two key principles of programming:

All students will also receive an in-depth course manual, and the course provides .8 CEU credits through NASM (others upon petition).
I look forward to learning and lifting with you!
