I didn’t plan it on purpose, but the weekend of Nashville Kettlebell’s Grand Opening celebration fiesta extravaganza happened to fall on June 26th. This is significant to me because my very first RKC was June 27-29. Happy HARDSTYLE birthday to me.
Here we have the ribbon cutting, which Heidi seemed unusually happy about. The ribbon and 2nd largest pair of scissors I have ever seen were provided by the Nashville Chamber of Commerce.
I demonstrated the Indian Clubs. Here I am in half kneeling posture. Expect to see a lot more of this creeping into class in the future.
For entertainment Mike the Machine Bruce and I performed a few feats of strength.
Here is my signature Getup/Sledgehammer combo lift at the midpoint.
After Mike did finger pullups on a 4 foot long 5/8 inch steel bar, I bent it across his throat, a signature feat for the Machine, possessor of the world’s strongest neck.
Of course we demonstrated kettlebell lifting.
Marcus showed the getup.
And Kristen did swings with 40kg, which is 3/4 of her bodyweight.
In addition to residents of Music CIty, we had visitors from Kentucky, ATL and Indiana. We gave away a bunch of free stuff and had a great time all around. I really appreciate the support from everyone and promise to continue to provide the very best in kettlebell instruction.
