#47 - Attending the Strongfirst Kettlebell Course

November 30, 2018

In this episode, I recap my experience taking the Strongfirst Kettlebell Course with Louka Kurcer. I travelled to Montreal to take this one day course because I needed someone to critique my technique with the KB moves. I got exactly that and much much more from this course and my time in Montreal. I also talk about what courses / certifications I’ve taken and my biggest takeaways from attending these courses.

#44 - How to Cultivate your Physical and Mental Environment

October 23, 2018

In this episode, I talk about how to cultivate your environment (both physical and mental) in order to improve your mental health. This is a very important topic that not a lot of people talk about and I want to shed some light on how I've been able to cultivate my own environment and how that has helped me grow as a person. As always, I am not perfect (far from it actually) but I am working hard to become better. Removing things and people from my environment and adding certain things has helped me tremendously.
