My Goal

I’ve probably mentioned this somewhere along the way on here.  I know I have in my classes in the past.  I have a goal.  That goal is to attain my SFG Level I Instructor.

What the heck is that?  Strong First Girya Level One.  What’s a ‘girya?’  Well, in short, a kettlebell.  So, simply put an SFG Level I is a “Strong First Level One Kettlebell Instructor.”

I’ve been tossing this idea around for a while now.  Especially since talking with Franz Snideman in November after receiving my HKC certification.  I truly believe this is the route I want to take in regards to my next level of kettlebells.

Of course, pursuing this goal is nsfg kettlebellot something one can take lightly.  I’ll need to train, practice and learn about how my mind will react to three days of intense training and learning.  And of course there is the physical demands I’ll be placed under, too.

This will not be easy.  So through Franz I made contact with Geoff Neupert and was steered by him to purchase a couple of his books.  “Kettlebell Burn” arrived in my email inbox and “Kettlebell Muscle” should arrive in the mail in the next few days.  After chatting with Geoff briefly via Facebook, he gave me great encouragement and told me to follow the programs to the letter (that’s a challenge for a lot of people, and a topic for another day. ) and I’ll be ready for SFG Level I.  Awesome.

And then I saw this – Kettlebell Fever – StrongFirst UK – The Story of Jayne Torvill

Jayne Torvill is a British Ice Dancer and Gold Medalist from the 1984 Winter Olympics.Torvill and Dean win the gold medal in Sarajevo.

That inspired me even further.  I’ve seen some short videos of SFG Level I, but this one impressed me and made me feel like this is something I can achieve.

Will this be easy?  Nope.  Is it doable?  Yep.  By when?  I’m hoping to have passed SFG Level I by the end of 2014.

Wish me luck!  I think I can.. I think I can… actually, I know I can… I know I can…
