I had the pleasure of taking the new SCC with Adrienne Harvey as my instructor in June 2016 in Gaithersburg, MD. If you are not familiar with this cert, it is a one day Strength Calisthenics Conditioning workshop, very similar to HKC as compared to RKC. As an 56 year old female, I was a little unsure about my skill level and what would be expected. My concerns were immediately put to rest. I found Adrienne to be warm, engaging and very much invested in helping us learn the material. And there was lots of material! Push-ups, pull-ups, abs, bridges, inversions (headstands/handstands), squats-all covered in one day. Regressions and progressions for each exercise plus tips on programming for training ourselves and for training clients if desired. If you think you've mastered these basic body weight exercises, this workshop will open your eyes to a bigger world. I'm very happy with my experience and now considering taking PCC. SCC is not to be missed!
I loved training with AdrienneShe knows what she is talking about and fun to workout with.Next time I am in Orlando I will train with her.Thank youfrom Washington DC
The A-Train is excellent because she listens then instructs. If she had started just steering me in a direction and tried to strong arm me into the latest fad I would have hit the road. She listens to what I want, asks me what I am doing then shows me what to change and then how to get there. I am a cheater - I will see the move and figure out how to cheat to get it done. She uncovers the layers and corrects from the ground up. I could not give a higher recommendation if you are really wanting to learn the right way.
I trained with Adrienne for 2 hours in April 2013. I had been using kettlebells for about 4 years and wanted to have my form checked. Adrienne did all that and more. She critiqued my form, told me what was wrong, and gave me cues to help instill the right movement. If I didn't understand the first cue, she had more until one clicked with me. She allowed me to make video clips of her technique while she explained the proper movement and provided the cues that were specific to my problems. I still review those clips. Since I am an older person, Adrienne knew how to pace the session so that I did not burn out during this 2 hour lesson. Highly recommended.
Are you looking for an instructor who walks the walk and talks the talk? Look no further. I had the opportunity to be coached by Ms. Harvey during my HKC certification and was blown away. Ms. Harvey has an innate ability to get to the heart of the matter. Her expertise shines and enthusiasm radiates as she offers simple and direct instruction that will bring your technique to the next level. If you get a chance to learn from Ms. Harvey take it! You will see incredible results.
Many thanks to Adrienne for her RKC II expertise. I am already certified, RKC, but needed assistance from another instructor to help me prepare for RKC II. From an existing instructor's point of view, I can tell you that Adrienne is excellent and her teaching was invaluable to help me prepare for heavy pressing, achieving a personal best with her instruction. She also taught me the bent press and even helped me improve my swing. She is knowledgeable and fun to work with. Great energy! Thanks so much Adrienne! In short, if you want an excellent instructor, contact Adrienne Harvey, RKC II.
I was lucky enough to be able to schedule time with Adrienne to train remotely during the 7 weeks leading up to my RKC. Thanks to the magic of Skype and YouTube, she gave me feedback on form, along with plenty of corrections, as well as a training schedule that left me prepared, yet refreshed when my RKC arrived. Her skill and creativity in creating a path FOR ME to take my skills to the next level not only helped me feel ready and confident for the RKC, but helped me earn that RKC with flying colors. If you want to succeed, if you want to reach your goals and be held accountable, with no coddling but plenty of support, Adrienne is the RKC II for you. Contact her NOW.
I met Adrienne when I was getting my HKC certification and enjoyed her great attitude. Recently I noticed that despite getting my HKC certification my kettlebell form wasn't as good as I would like it to be due to my lack of practice. I contacted Adrienne and she promptly scheduled a session with me and answered a ton of questions and really cleaned up my form.As a coach myself, I have come in contact with many others in the industry and I would rate Adrienne as top notch. She is patient, intelligent, and has a really great grasp of the material she teaches. I greatly appreciate her insight and assistance and look forward to working with her in the future.
I live 3 hours away from Adrienne and training with her was worth every mile. I was preparing for the RKC at the time and needed help. She was patient and helped me clean up my technique. Needless to say I passed the RKC and I think Adrienne was a big contributor to my success. Thanks Adrienne!
Living across the country, I got to know Adrienne online through her great Girya Girl blog. She has a great take on training smart, training hard, eating well, and driving oneself to success. Recently, I had the pleasure to train with her during a trip. She showed me some great drills which are helping me to greatly improve my swing and snatch form. Seriously, read the Girya Girl’s blog, watch her training videos, do her workouts, and if you get the chance, definitely train with her 1:1!
I started training with Adrienne in a small group Kettlebell class about 5 months ago. Before starting classes, I attended an introductory session to learn the basics. These classes have changed my whole outlook on fitness! In the past I have spent countless hours in the gym and spent a small fortune on gym-based personal trainers. But it wasn’t until I incorporated Kettlebell training that I saw really remarkable gains in strength and conditioning, and in a very short period of time. Adrienne is an excellent instructor all around. She is a stickler for form and makes sure you learn and maintain good technique. Safety and avoiding injury is another top priority. In addition, she keeps it fun, vibrant, and exciting, and is always mixing it up! I look forward to every class, knowing it will be a totally new experience. I know I will get my butt kicked – but laugh too (while catching my breath)! She pushes me to be better and stronger and reach new goals constantly. She is also very open to all questions. I highly recommend her.
I recently relocated to the area and after searching for an RKC instructor, I joined Adrienne's small group sessions and began training with her. Adrienne's kettlebell sessions are challenging, intense, FUN, personally rewarding, and a great workout. Her enthusiasm, friendliness, and positive demeanor really encourage you to reach your personal goals while focusing on proper technique and form. Adrienne tailors the kettlebell workouts to your individual needs while encouraging you to reach your full potential and build strength. Adrienne is extremely knowledgeable and easily accessible for questions or comments. If you are looking for a fantastic workout to develop both skill and fitness, I would highly recommend Adrienne Harvey!
I've been working out for Adrienne for about 2 months at this point. I first worked out with her at one of her bootcamp class then decided I wanted to start kettlebell training with her. I know when ever I'm taking a class with Adrienne I will be burning major calories in a fun environment. She knows exactly when I need to be pushed a little harder. If your thinking about taking her bootcamp or kettlebell class you can't go wrong with Adrienne.
Adrienne is a great instructor for anyone, regardless of fitness level. She is very adaptive, and after evaluating a client's needs can tailor a workout that isn't just right for them, but also factors in their potential. She has a huge understanding of anatomy and body awareness, and will work tirelessly to help her clients meet and exceed their fitness goals. After seeing my own results, I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Adrienne is a fantastic trainer. As a kettlebell novice, I'm grateful to Adrienne for her energetic presence and support. She has a terrific sense of humor and is incredibly engaging. She provides you with challenges, but isn't overwhelming. She continually stresses proper technique and constant engagement of the abdominals, no matter how light or heavy the kettlebell. Also, her enthusiasm is a constant source of motivation to her students.In addition to her fantastic personality, Adrienne provides a plethora of resources to her clients. Her blog, giryagirl.com, has workouts, articles, videos, and recipes to help clients achieve their very best. Having been through many phases in my fitness experience, I have finally found enjoyment through kettlebell training with Adrienne. She makes training fun and working with her is a terrific experience. I know that others who are looking for a great trainer to push them in the right direction should look no further than Adrienne Harvey.
I just started kettlebell training with Adrienne and feel very comfortable with knowing that Adrienne is very knowledgeable about kettlebell training. My wife has been working with her for several weeks now and always raves on how Adrienne is very good on teaching proper form and how she is sore in all the "right" places, instead of the "wrong" places if proper form is not first established. Adrienne teaches you a good foundation, before moving on to bigger things. I recommend Adrienne to anyone wanting to learn how to train with kettlebells.
There are not enough good things to say about Adrienne! I've known her personally for over 10 years and have seen her become who she is today; professional, patient, hard-working, strong, pleasant and a great trainer! She is filled with knowledge and as a kettlebell enthusiast and RKC Instructor her passion shines through and is contagious. Adrienne has motivated me in many ways to be a better me. What could be better than that?! I know I can always depend on Adrienne for fresh new ideas on workouts and pushing myself towards a healthier life!
I 1st met Adrienne at boot camp and really loved her go get 'em attitude! She really inspired me! I saw her one day with a kettlebell and really wanted to learn. My friend Katie and I are now being instructed by her and she is amazing on so many levels. I love kettlebell and the results I am getting in such a short time. She really pushes you to your potential and has the final result in mind! Be ware, if you put the kettlebell down the wrong way, you will be doing 20 pushups! :) She is not only a trainer, but also a great motivator! Love, love, love Adrienne! Can't wait for more!
