Passing the HKC and Play Time Video!

If we’re friends on facebook or twitter, you may already know that I passed my HKC this past weekend!

HKC Amanda Perry

We had a great group of students and an awesome instructor, Dave Whitley, Master RKC!

Passed my HKC in September 2011

He did a great job of breaking down the Kettlebell Swing, Turkish Get Up and Goblet Squat. I’m armed with some new tips to help my clients learn these 3 essential kettlebell exercises safely as well as some tips to help correct some common technique problems.

I got to see someone I played soccer with a million years ago in high school and meet someone I knew from blogging. Overall, what a great day!

Hubby and I were away from Connor on Saturday night for the first time. It was definitely weird being without him for so long, but he had a blast (as usual) with Grammy and Grampy and I’m making sure to spend a little extra time snuggling him this week.

Speaking of Connor and working out…he’s been working on his own skills. Check out this video from play time last night. :)

Next up…RKC in April 2012! :)


  1. Congrats!! What a great accomplishment! I hope to do something like this post-pregnancy…help get me back on the workout wagon! :)

    And thank you so much for stopping by my blog earlier today!! :)

  2. Congrats!! That is fantastic news!! Good luck with your training for the RKC!! Nicole xx

  3. I know this is going to sound awful, but I have actually NOT gotten on the kettlebell train yet! GASP! I hear miraculous wonderful things about them, but we have just not had the extra money to go out and buy a few. I think I will definitely invest in them post-baby. Congratulations on getting your certification though! And big, massive congratulations on looking so amazing only three months post-bebe! You are a HUGE inspiration to me!

    • It doesn’t sound awful. Kettlebells are not as popular in the Northeast as they are in other parts of the country. Many people don’t have access to kettlebells and most people don’t have access to an instructor who can help them make sure that they are using them in a safe and effective way. That said, I highly recommend them for mamas as it’s a great way to burn a lot of calories quickly. :)

      Thanks so much for the congrats. I have a feeling you’ll get right back in shape post baby as well. :) Hope you’re feeling awesome!

  4. Congrats mama! So proud of you!

  5. I saw mike’s post about this on facebook. Congrats!!
