October is here and the weather is still beautiful! We will be staying outside for classes this month then heading indoors for November. Through the winter I will be holding evening classes at Evolve Fitness in Halifax, lunch time classes at 360Fit in Dartmouth, and there may be locations for evening classes in Dartmouth & Bedford - depending on the demand.

As many of you know, Steve and I are getting married this month (10/10/10) so I will be taking a week and a half off to get ready, celebrate, and recover! Check out the Schedule page to view my calendar or the Classes page for a description of what's happening this month. I won't be charging the normal "Outdoor Kettlebell Bootcamp" rate in October since there will be fewer classes held. The amount for each class is written in its description.

Thanks so much for your understanding that October will be a bit crazy. I plan on posting a workout for everyone to do on their own for the days that I am unable to teach classes. Remember to push yourself, I am only going to post workouts that I know you will each be able to complete so there will be no giving up!
