Who We Are
The Twin Cities Kettlebell Club was founded in St. Paul, Minnesota in 2019, and since the Covid-19 pandemic we have focused on supporting athletes online from anywhere in the world.
To become our best selves through sport.
To bring Kettlebell Sport into the mainstream in America.
Twin Cities Kettlebell Club was founded on a set of core principles that both define who I am and guide what I do. I believe that everyone deserves to live a healthy life and I seek to teach our athletes how to overcome the obstacles in their lives so they can reach their goals.
Health and wellness is a human right and access to it should not be limited based on race, age, weight, gender identity, sexual orientation, or class. I believe Black Lives Matter, and I believe in equal rights for all. We are a part of this community and will fight for the rights of all who live here.
Coaching is a working relationship between partners striving towards the same goals. I start by listening to my athletes to hear about their goals, assess their needs, learn their strengths, uncover obstacles, and determine the best course of action to get there.
Every person is unique and every goal requires a different approach based on your starting point, strengths, obstacles, and resources. Once we've assessed, we will talk through the realistic time frame based on your individual situation. I limit the number of clients I work with because I want to get to know all my athletes personally so I can better understand how to help you achieve your goals.
I believe that dogma is the enemy of progress. I don't prescribe any one nutrition strategy or training plan based on a narrow minded belief about the "right way" to eat or exercise. I think the best approach is the one that keeps you making consistent progress to your goal and evolves over time.
No bullshit, no fads, no miracle pills or magic bullets, only proven methods that deliver results. I use data and measurement to inform a systematic, iterative approach where we track and measure your results at regular intervals and refine and modify your plan based on what is working and changing what is not.
Your needs come first, and I will never make a recommendation based on what's best for me. I will only recommend things I believe in, would use myself, and I will be transparent with any affiliate relationships I have with any products or services I recommend.
