Really crazy!!

It has been a crazy month. Started with RKC Ireland. 10 days in Ireland with the love of my life, Oh yeah I had to teach at the RKC too. Laura and I had a great time trekking all over the beautiful landscape. Not to mention that we all got the royal treatment from our Irish brothers and sister D, Paul and of course Carmel
It's amazing how people can feel like family from the first day you meet them.

After we got back to CA Laura and I had 20ish days before a wedding. In that time I think I saw Laura for a total of about 24hrs in those 20ish days leading up to our wedding. She was on a roll and busting out orders and plans like it was her job! The result was the most special day of my almost 40 years of life. I still can't believe that I'm this lucky. I can not wait to see what unfolds for us, it's going to be an unreal adventure.

That's a quick update of life in my world. I am amazed everyday by those around me AKA the Sacks family. Thank you all for helping me be a better me.

Off we go again

It's that time again. Laura and I have been lucky enough to be picked to teach at the first ever RKC Ireland. What a honor! I'll post all about it when we return.

This does mean that there will be NO classes in Ventura the week of OCT 3rd. Classes will resume on Oct 11th. Enjoy the week off!

I'm reminded daily of how great life can be. A smile from Laura, a motorcycle ride through the mountains. Both of which must be the reason I walk the earth because I can't imagine something that would make me happier.

I teach kettlebells for a living. Really? I've traveled to places, made friends and experienced things I wouldn't have without kettlebells. Wow, a hunk of iron that looks like a cannonball that you JUST swing and pick up and put back down. I often tell people that the RKC will change your life if you let it. I remind myself how much it has done for me. Just a piece of iron, not really but a daily reminder of how well off I am.

I had the pleasure of teaching at the most recent RKC II in Saint Paul, MN. It was hot damp and just as tough as it should have been.

Team Kilt, killed it as always. What a great group! My goal at RKCs is to build a team that supports each other for the whole weekend. I got lucky because they were cheering for there teammates right out of the box Friday morning and it built from there. This then made the rest of the weekend much smoother. If a team member was attempting a PR in the press or testing technique they had the whole group for support. It was a pleasure to have all of you. THANK YOU for a great weekend!

Ok, I suck!

It has been over a year since I last posted anything on my blog. I guess it's time for an update.

Here is the short and sweet of it.

Tons of travel for RKC and HKC stuff. Several new projects and clients that have changed the way I view some aspects of training. All for the good! There are clients climbing mountains, throwing spears, flying stunt planes and jumping motorcycles above the world like they are walking to the corner store. I have been very fortunate to build new friendships and keep old ones.

I was reminded today by a good friend of mine just how lucky I am! He of course didn't know that's what he was doing. But somebody stopping by just to poke a head into class means more than people know. Thanks Jeff.

The other huge thing that has happened is that Laura Sacks agreed to become my wife. I could ask for nothing more. So this November we'll be getting married in Carpinteria CA with 160 of our closest friends. Life is grand and I try to remember that everyday.

I love you Laura!
