Boxercise and Kettlebell day

NB. I am no longer doing this class or am a part of Womensfitnessplus in Cork. Big differences in our professional ethics (or lack of same) put an end to our collaboration. I will miss all the wonderful women I’ve met in my classes and PT sessions, but I will not miss being treated with condesenting arrogance for my professional knowledge and/ or as a fellow human being.
Since Womensfitnessplus made it mandatory for their trainers to sell at least 3 Kinetica products on each shift, I had to say I wouldn’t do it. I’d give information about the products, but under no circumstances would I push the products to women, who didn’t need them. I don’t believe in selling useless stuff, or even worse telling lies to make a profit like.
I’m a fitness professional with ethics and beliefs on what’s right and whats wrong – I work for results, not for greed.
As a result our ways departed – and despite I miss the happy women – I would choose to stand by my ethics again.

 

Two happy boxercise classes at Womens Fitness this Wednesday. One full booked and seven new fun kb drills for me to try, in my PT sessions. Very happy indeed, even I didn’t sleep super nice.
I actually woke up with a big loud, ‘shi*’, thinking I’d turned the alarm off and overslept. I didn’t – just slept badly. In fact I woke up 3 minutes before the alarm went off!

Anyway – as usual got a little business done in the PT’s (all 12kg):

Swings double hand: 3x 20
Swings to pull backs: 3x 15
Swings to top: 2x 10
Squats to OH press: 3x 20
Lunges pass over: 2x 20
Side dips: 3x 20
½ TGU: 3x 20
Russians: 3x 20
Tricep etx: 2x 20
Single leg deadlift: 2x 20
Amazone: 2x 5 (last hold for 10 sec)
+ lot’s of situps and squats with Boxercise class

Liam got a new bar today! It’s so much better, cause it’s olympic sized and grip is better. Looking forward to train with it! (and learn to snatch with more than 20kg)

Just a quick monday evening note to thank everyone in my two classes tonight.
I truly enjoy teaching the classes and training with so dedicated ladies (girls, women and mam’s) and it’s a true pleasure to see you grow and develope strength, technique – and in Boxing – a heart for the sport!

45 min. of Good Ol’ Kettlebells, including some hard drills tonight: Pull backs, Amazon Get Ups, ½ TGU, snatches & C&J’s. Happy to hear some of my regulars are feeling more fit and stronger.

The Boxercise was a delight as usual. Especially two women impressed me tonight, Samantha and Caroline. They came for the very first class – aren’t even members in the gym, but just heard about the class. They told me back then, that they would do a lot of walking, but felt like trying something new and different.
And they’ve been hanging in there. Almost every week, I’ve seen them since we started the class – and today – I see Samantha throwing punches, like it’s all she ever done. Amazing!!
Made my boxing heart squeeze a little tear – and made me so proud! And ofcourse I told them!!

Tomorrow it’s the real debut with my Boxercise class at K2C! Hopefully just as great fun as Womens Fitness.
