All-American Championship at Las Vegas – Results!

This past weekend marked my first time competing at the All-American Kettlebell Sport Championship at Mr. Olympia, and my first trip to Las Vegas! While you would probably have to pay me to ever go back to Las Vegas again (I’m not a nightlife person), I had fun slinging bells, bonding with my teammates, connecting with kettle-friends, and exploring the craziness of the expo.

The competition pool was much smaller than in previous years, but KOR was well-represented with 7 athletes.

Here are our results:  Continue reading

Kettlebell Sport Spectating 101

As I heard it described at AKA Nationals 2015, watching a Kettlebell Sport competition can be “like watching paint dry, until the last few minutes”; at least for those who are not fully immersed in the land of kettle.

If you understand what the competition is all about and the incredible feats of strength that are on display, however, spectating the competition becomes much more interesting.

Here’s what you need to know as a Kettlebell Sport spectator:  Continue reading

Secrets to success of AKA’s newest Master of Sport

unnamed
Lauren with her coach Eric Reyelt.

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.

What do you do for a living?
I work at QKettlebell Strength and Conditioning, teaching group classes, and at my husband’s Maximized Living office, Invictus Family Chiropractic.

AKA National Records

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!

If you see any corrections that need to be made, please email info@kbfitbritt.com

I just registered for the USA Nationals in Chicago – it’s time for me to step up and earn my ticket to Dublin. I know I will have some tough competition, but I’m glad – it means I will need to push myself to my limits in training for a chance to win gold in August! Continue reading
