Hello my name is Taco Fleur and since 2009 I’ve made it my mission to spread the word of kettlebell training online, mostly for free, and will continue to do so.
I’m an IKFF Certified Kettlebell Trainer, Kettlebell Level 1 + 2 Certified, Kettlebell Science and Application, CrossFit Level 1 Trainer plus many other exercise qualifications.
I started out as a programmer and entrepreneur, I still use those skill to this day, I use the programming skills to analyse and break down exercises, in such a way that everyone can understand them while trying to avoid the use of complicated names. I’m a big advocate of correct exercise naming at the right times.
I try not to blindly follow or agree with information I receive, not because of mistrust, but because it’s important for everyone to do their own research and provide their own opinion. You’ll see me questioning things and maybe even disagreeing with things. But one thing is for certain, if I disagree with you and later find out that you were right, I’m not afraid to admit this. So, please, just because I might not agree with you, doesn’t mean we can’t be ‘friends’.
Having said that, I always like to have new kettlebell friends on my Facebook, although I try to use it mostly for spreading kettlebells and some business, I do like to keep the circle positive, I delete and block toxic people and trolls, read my answer to trolls here.
I like to invent new ways to do things, talk about and question things that others don’t, I enjoy showing people how to do exercises correctly, this doesn’t mean I’m always correct, sometimes I might think I’m correct but I’m not, this is exactly why you should always do your own research. But having said that, most of the time, if not always, I’m correct, I also have a weird sense of humour, sometimes described as sarcasm.
I enjoy doing crazy adventurous stuff where I live, like climbing up the highest mountain for a 6 hour hike with a kettlebell, swing it at the top, shoot some awesome photos and head back, swing through a canyon with my dog, hike up a mountain through the bush with an adventurous group of people, ride the bike, walk the beach and much more. I enjoy a drink too, but much rather prefer to do active stuff.
Why am I writing all this? I’m writing this to pull you all together, maybe you know someone that needs to be interviewed, maybe it’s yourself that needs to be interviewed, maybe you know someone who has a good video laying around that needs to be edited and put online, I can do that, maybe you’ve written a good article that needs to get an audience, I can help with that. Maybe we just need to hook up on Facebook because you know one day there might be someway we can help each-other, maybe you live or know someone living on the Costa del Sol that needs some kettlebell training in person, whatever it is, lets do something about it.
Here are some of the things I’m involved with, maybe you see something that can help you, maybe something that can help me, maybe something that can help the kettlebell community, just speak up below or message me on Facebook or [email protected]
