Looking for a quick way to get attention for your training business and separate yourself from the competition?

Have you heard about battling ropes training?

This system is spreading like wild fire around the world and has become an integral part of almost every major sports strength and conditioning program.

I have been fortunate enough to track down John Brookfield and talked him into doing a certification workshop at our gym in Orange County!  John is a world renowned strength coach and holds several strength records that are jaw dropping!  His Battling Ropes program has become a popular conditioning tool for the NFL, Olympic athletes, elite military units and strength coaches everywhere.

“As an athlete who has trained at an elite level for almost 30 years, it takes a lot for a new training system to impress me. But within just a few sessions, John Brookfield's Battling Ropes training system had clearly improved my power, strength, and muscular endurance. My sports--weightlifting and bobsledding--require a unique combination of strength and explosiveness, and Battling Ropes offers great physical and mental results. The ropes are simple to learn but tough to master! I am a better athlete thanks to John's encouraging guidance and his unwavering commitment to personal excellence. John is an amazing athlete and mentor who knows from experience what works when it comes to strength and conditioning. “

John has also been listed in Ripley's Believe it or Not and the Guinness Book of World Records.

“Thanks, John, for coming to the Olympic Center to teach our wrestlers your Battling Ropes system. It was great to get all the instruction directly from you, the creator of the system. I strongly believe that your Battling Ropes system will benefit our wrestlers in a great way. All of the wrestlers quickly saw how the training will help them go to the next level.”

“I've known John Brookfield for almost 20 years, going to back to when he was an active professional strongman in the classic sense and aspired to have the world's strongest hands. John went on to become the second man in the world to officially close the Captains of Crush® No. 3 Gripper and the first man to get certified for bending the Ironmind® Red Nail, which he did in very traditional style. But his book, Mastery of Hand Strength, showed an even greater gift that John has which is a creative mind coupled with an unblinking belief in his latest concepts that has allowed John to keep churning out new training ideas, benefiting both his own training and that of those lucky enough to learn from him.”

What Doctor's don't tell you after a C-section

I have now been through 2 C-sections since writing this blog post and thankfully I've recovered beautifully from both with the appropriate progressions. For those who are new and are just finding me. WELCOME! First let me say I did NOT want a C-section. I did everything in my power to avoid the first and even the second. I'm a kettlebell fitness strength and conditioning coach who relies on her body to share, teach, educate, and I was under the impression that having to give birth via C-section would and could destroy my body and career. Boy was I wrong! If you're feeing the same way, start by reading this article I wrote many years ago that still applies today! Many people have asked and here is part of my experience.  I don't claim to be a medical expert but not only have I successfully healed my C-section, my abdominals are no longer numb, and I've successfully helped others who've had multiple C-sections (even some 20 years ago) find their core aga
