Five weeks out from the 2014 OKC NorCal Open Kettlebell Sport competition, I severely rolled my ankle on the job. The first action I took was call an advice nurse and schedule an X-ray after the swelling went down. The X-ray revealed a severe sprain in the ligaments that run over the top of the foot. Instructions were to ice, rest, and elevate for a day then wrap the foot up. Continue reading
What is your athletic background?
I played a few sports in high school, nothing intensely, and then after college, I joined a gym to take group fitness classes, which led to strength and conditioning workouts, which led to Kettlebell Sport.
Today’s KB Fit Britt tip is on the KETTLEBELL CLEAN.
I’ve had a few requests from readers about what I eat. This post is not meant to show a “perfect” diet, and it definitely does not show everything I eat in a day. Remember that everyone is different and nourishes their body in their own way.
A couple of notes about my nutritional habits:
- I don’t subscribe to any particular diet (nope, I don’t eat paleo, whatever that means).
- Although I avoid processed food like the plague, give me ALL the (healthy) carbs!
- I don’t eat a lot of meat, mainly because most of it comes from factory farms which grosses me out. However, I eat meat when I feel like it/know the meat has come from a good source. I don’t call myself a vegetarian.
- Quick and easy meals are my go-to. I eat fried eggs for dinner more times per week than I like to admit.

Curious about taking a workshop with me?
Reviews of my Kettlebell Sport workshops:
“Brittany van Schravendijk is a leader in the sport as an athlete and teacher, with training experience next to great lifters and coaches. The Snatch workshop with Brittany is an experience worth having. There were many golden nuggets that we walked away with and now utilize in our practice and curriculum at Girya Garage. No matter how many hours or years you have under your belt, take the opportunity to work with Brittany and see the results for yourself.” – Will P.
In my effort to provide easy access to relevant Kettlebell Sport information on KB Fit Britt, I started compiling records for American Kettlebell Sport lifters. I will keep adding to this and eventually have a succinct list of Kettlebell Sport records for American lifters.
For simplification, I limited the pool to American Kettlebell Association (AKA) competitions and 16kg+ kettlebell weight events.
Special thanks to Steven Khuong for helping me!
