So most of you know that most of the staff went down to Philadelphia last weekend for the StrongFirst level 2 KettleBell Certification. I won’t bore you with the details but this is the most challenging KB certification anywhere in the world right now. The Level 1 is perhaps more physically demanding over the course of the weekend, but the degree of skill and strength combined to pass the Level 2 is unique. Going into the weekend there were only 10 SFG 1’s in the entire state (7 of which are at Alpha Fitness) and only a single SFG 2 (me!)- there’s a reason we’re the best KB gym around! Now I’d like to congratulate Lisa Comito and Jennette Butterfield for becoming the first (and currently only) women in RI to become Level 2 Certified KB instructors. They did a tremendous job and I couldn’t be prouder! We have a couple more instructors that will finish off this certification soon as well so more congratulations are on the way. I know how lucky I am to have such a great group of trainers here at Alpha and I hope everyone appreciates the time and effort they put in to be the best they can for all of you.
