Wendy Pond RKC

Congratulations to Wendy Pond- Fairfield Strength Member and our newest Russian Kettlebell Certified Instructor. Wendy completed the RKC Snatch Challenge on Friday performing 100 snatches with a 35 lb kettlebell in 4 min and 25 seconds. The challenge allows 5 minutes to complete 100 reps. But the snatch challenge is only the beginning - the gateway to a 3 day trail of strenght and endurance that 30 % of the candidates fail. Wendy was required to demonstrate perfect technique in the deadlift, the squat, the swing, the clean, the press, the snatch and most importantly - the Turkish Get Up. Finally - she had to demonstrated her ability to teach and pass an instructor training practical - her final test was to survive the Graduate Work Out - a grueling work out that seperates the strong from the weak. Wendy destroyed every challenge and recieved her RKC Kettlebell Instructor. Great Job Wendy!!!

Congrats to Denis - TRX 40/40 in Germany!

Thanks to technology, TRX and Fairfield Strength the pond just go smaller. Denis took a TRX back to Germany with him after his visit in July - It didn't take long for him to master the atomic push up and conquer the 40/40 challenge. The above pictures were taken during his recent visit to the Fairfield Strength Summer Session at Roger Ludlow Middle School fitness center back in July. Congratulations Denis - we are very proud of you!


Germany beats the TRX 40/40 challenge !!!

Thanks to my friend and coach Captain Gomola. He showed me all those great exercises that made me faster, stronger and more resistant against injurys. Thanks for all the great programs you send to me. Here is the proof that I'm working hard. I'm excited to do the next challenge ;-)

TRX on the road - Matt in AZ

TRX on vacation. One of the great features of TRX training systems is the portability. Not wanting to miss training Matt purchased his own TRX before heading on vacation. This photo was taken in Arizona - Great Stuff Matt!!

SAQS Training is a GO!

Tuesday's Training - TRX on the Track

Fairfield Ludlow HS Maintanance Staff has much work to do over the summer. We try our best to work together to minimize our program impact on their schedule. They are refinishing the floor outside the fitness center this week. We had the option of moving to the yoga studio but decided to move outside instead - great stuff - our photos show the versitility of the TRX training system:
