This weekend, I was fortunate enough to photograph the Hardstyle Kettlebell Certification, hosted at my gym, Kettlebell Daily in West Haven. The HKC consists of: Knowledge and competency to perform the three most basic kettlebell drills – the swing, the get up, and the goblet squat, techniques and drills for core activiation, flexibility, increased power, strength, and athletic performance, and the HKC template for designing an infinate number of kettlebell workouts. It was taught by RKC instructor Dan John. Dan was animated and incredibly knowledgeable. I felt like I learned a lot just by listening as I took pictures. Above are the men and women who took the course and passed.

Sergio practicing his hardstyle kettlebell swing. I'm lucky to have Sergio in my morning classes at the gym. He's an incredibly focused individual.

Congrats to the newest HKC's and to Steve Rowe for hosting his first of many events!
