TracyRif Teaches the Kettlebell Swing @ Lululemon Palo Alto

I've been working on this project for a few months now....

Problems? How to teach Kettlebells for a group....for free (!)....at a Lululemon Retail Store.

How many bells?

How many people?

Do you know what kind of time and effort goes into teaching beginners? The most amount of time you'll spend as a trainer goes into teaching beginners. Here's what I came up with, and my proposal to Lululemon, Palo Alto....

Lulu....give me 4 employees willing to commit to 2 workouts a week, Tuesdays and Saturdays, for only 30 minutes, (a total of 4 beginning lessons), and I will bring the bells, I will teach them how to swing, and within 2 weeks time they will see, and feel, a visible difference in their physical apperance, in their cardio conditioning, and overall level of fitness.....be ready to commit though, no missing, no excuses..... There is no other more qualified Kettlebell Swing Instructor that you will find in this area, period. Kettlebells are THE hottest "new" training tool, and I know how to teach it!

Woo Hoo! Today was the first day I got my hands on 4 Lululemon employees! Good Lord are they going to be feeling the hurt tomorrow! But they have no choice but to meet with me again this Saturday for the 2nd installment....1 hand swings! I only ask for the commitment of consistency.

Here is a short video Mark took of my Lululemon Debut! I'm working with Christine and Sara, my second pair of Lulu's "victims", lol, in the Palo Alto location. If you are local, then come by and see us train again Saturday from 11:30am-12:30pm.

(the audio is kind of trippy! Mark was trying to tape it and another Lulu employee was trying to have a conversation with him....but you'll get the idea)

You can be my manager, lol! OR, my sidekick! Get your HKC girlfriend! Work with me!

Jen said...

What an honor that would be!!

HKC is on my horizon...after my little "challenge", I'll be good as new!

Can't wait to hear what the Lulu employees have to say about their training. Good job!

Very awesome! A friend of mine and fellow blogger has convinced me to buy a kettlebell and try the workout at home! I am so excited to learn more about this world and you look AMAZING!
