I have been a fitness professional since 2003. My background includes a mixture of kettlebells, olympic weight lifting, crossfit, yoga and joint mobility. As a child I grow up tap dancing, hunting and doing just about anything adventurous and often times dangerous that challenged me physically and mentally.
I travel internationally with Agatsu training other trainers in kettlebells, joint mobility and movement. From athletes to people dealing with serious illnesses, my clients and students learn to move with awareness, connection and build a strong foundation for fitness for life.
‘Mastery of movement is not just for the elite. It is about self-discovery and creation’.
Through movement we discover our limitations, practice to overcome them and create new possibilities. We must pay attention to the way in which we move. If we move without awareness we miss out on information. Practice doesn’t make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect. Enjoy learning new things and pay attention to the details of that experience. This is how you will evolve.
