New Years Eve and End of Year Reflection...
And a look ahead to 2009
Well - here we are at the end of the year - 2008 is closing out and 2009 is about to ring in and now is the time for a bit of reflection.
I taught a total of 22 workshops and attended two of the Z Health workshops - Included in that are 11 FMS related workshops (including a brand new Certification blending FMS and RKC), and 10 RKC or Kettlebell related workshops, and even a "tension, relaxation and flexibility" workshop.
These workshops took me to Minneapolis many times (6 or so), Amsterdam twice, Hungary, San Diego, San Jose (CA), Chicago, Roanoke (VA), Ohio, Las Angeles, and even Pittsburgh.
The Secrets of... series grew to four products and Gray and I have launched "Kettlebells from the Ground Up 2 DVD set and manual. 2009 will mark the release of Kettlebells for Power Athletes with myself and Jeff O'Connor.
In short - it was a tremendous year professionally which does include my personal training clients and a very good year there as well. And I am looking for an even better 2009!
Personally - I shaved my head and grew my hair back ;-)
Attending the Z Health workshops has been an incredible part of my continuing education and has brought wonderful friends into my life.
The RKC community has continued to grow and progress and includes some of my best friends and I am honored to be a part of it.
Look into reading "The Brain that Changes Itself", "On Intelligence", Einstein's Biography, Ben Franklin's biography and the Sigma series by John Rollins, "Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar..." - these are great books and had quite an influence on me this year (even if it was just fun).
I think that will do it. 2008 was amazing and I am charging into 2009 (much of success in life is simply persistence and moving forward regardless....
I wish you all the best life has to offer in 2009! SHAKE and BAKE Baby.....
