Seattle Kettlebell Workshop with Kenneth Jay

As you may know I love implementing kettlebell training into my athletes training programs as well as all my other clients training. I have done that because of a couple of reasons:

1. They work!
2. The training is versatile and fun (well, I call it fun).
3. They work!

I have been using kettlebells for almost 7 years now and there was a time where I trained exclusively with kettlebells while getting some of my greatest gains in strength and performance. I became an RKC (Russian Kettlebell Instructor) around 3 years ago and my team leader at the time was Kenneth Jay.

Kenneth is unique in the fact that he walks the walk, as you can see from some of his feats of strength (wait till the part where the senior instructors show their skills, you can even spot me in te vid)while also having an incredible knowledge base and staying in the trenches training Olympic and elite athletes as well as many others. His new book Viking Warrior Conditioning is an incredible resource on V02 max training and building a unstoppable conditioning machine. I have used the protocols for fat loss training and we’ve had some pretty crazy results.

You will be happy to hear that Hocevar Performance and Kettlebility are hosting Kenneth Jay for a 1 day workshop on The Quickest Way To Achieve Fat Loss and Forge a Heart Of Steel (the V02 max protocols). Kenneth will also be covering some of his insights on program design (this cannot be missed!). The workshop will take place at  downtown Seattle Xplore Fitness.

We are really going all out with some of the bonuses (an extra workshop?) and spots are filling up fast, we have 12  8 spaces left. To check out all the information about the workshop, go over to

Random Thoughts and Update’s

It’s getting real busy at Hocevar Performance and I tend to train a little too long, I must confess. The situation leaves me only so much time to take care of all the other things I need to, such as keeping this blog as interesting as possible. So much for all the time management books I’ve read!

Here are some thoughts and updates that will be extremely random, yet I hope you get something out of them, even if it’s just a good laugh (I guarantee that one!)

Hocevar Performance In The News

Last week was a busy and eventful week for me, from attending the Fitness Business Summit 09 to appearing in the newspaper and then hosting Andrea Du Cane for a great workshop here in Seattle (her first one here).

As I mentioned before, its really important to keep improving your own education and go to seminar/conferences, mentorships, etc. but I find that you can learn the most from the leaders in the industry after hours when the event is over and you can pick their brain (while having a beer off course).

Fitness Business Summit after hours

Heavy hitters Bedros Keuilian, Pat Beith, Vince Delmonte and other fitness pro’s working on getting to that level…including me :)
