When I attempt to explain to someone the sport I compete in, I tell them that I lift something that looks like a bowling ball with a handle, over my head, somewhere between 100 and 200 times in ten minutes. Sounds a little crazy, right?
Life has been busy and exciting during these last couple months of 2014! Building up a client base and new programs takes time and lots of work, but I’m looking forward to where 2015 will take me.
When I started working at Point Loma Sports Club, I was so excited to discover that one of my favorite fitness bloggers, Gina from The Fitnessista, also works there! I took one of her Zumba classes and introduced myself as one of her fans. She’s the first “blog celebrity” I’ve met in person!
Hi everyone! I’m excited to share a new email-based nutrition program I have been working on for the past month.
You do not have to live in San Diego to participate! All information is sent digitally and all coaching occurs over email, unless otherwise requested.

Yesterday was my first Bolt Kettlebell Sport competition, hosted by Michael LoBue at Foundation Strength. I was blown away by how much fun the event was and how many newcomers to Kettlebell Sport got up on the platform! I especially loved seeing a bunch of kids who are getting into the sport.
We are one week away from the Bolt competition at Foundation Strength. Not sure I am ready myself but my KOR athletes are progressing great!
Dave & Lauren have been attending my semi-private Kettlebell Sport workshop on Monday & Wednesday nights for the past three weeks, getting individualized programming and coaching in order to prepare for the competition.
In the weeks leading up to the AKA/IUKL Nationals 2014 in New York, I had a major kettlebell breakthrough. I improved my 20kg snatch number by more than 15 reps and consistently hit Master of Sport numbers in 24kg Long Cycle. So what “magic” happened to instigate this breakthrough?
Here is a recap of my week, in pictures!
I hiked Iron Mountain in the Poway area with Rampage (3.5 miles up). He was a total trooper, and took a nice nap on the drive home!
I’m excited to announce I will be leading the Kettlebell Sport Program at KOR in North Park, San Diego! I will be coaching Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7-8pm and Saturdays from 1-2pm. I will also be holding an Introduction to Kettlebell Sport Workshop this Saturday, October 25 from 1-3pm for anyone interested in lifting competition bells. Whether you are looking for a new skill to invigorate your workout routine or plan to be part of KOR‘s competition team, this workshop is necessary for understanding and developing the basic techniques of Kettlebell Sport.
I’m lucky to be staying in the beautiful city of Del Mar, just up the road from Torrey Pines State Beach (pictured above). I’ve thoroughly enjoyed waking up in the morning and either hiking at Torrey Pines State Park or just ambling along the shore and taking a dip afterwards.
