One thing that Alberto Gallazi does really well is lead from the front. As RMAX HeadCoach and Director of the European Union, he holds bi-annual CST/TACFIT conventions to keep all coaches/instructors informed about evolutions in the system. I have had the honor to have Alberto observe the very first Clubbell Yoga seminar when we launched back in 2012... now I get to meet him on his turf (well sort of) in London, UK. Alberto is trekking from Italy to London to teach a Clubbell 5X5 Workshop, featuring tons of info from his newest product release (CB 5X5) on May 15, 2015. His workshop is the day before the Clubbell Yoga Seminar at the Field Lifestyle and Training Centre. I would like to highlight a few things about Alberto that you may not expect... given his fierce look and very strong physique.
No this is not Acro yoga, it is a method that Alberto uses to show how the TACFIT style exercise relate directly to martial arts. He is showing points of contact on an opponent, but check out his hips (the powerhouse) which he can use to generate force and power when needed.
If you look at Alberto's face here, he is calm and relaxed even though his is holding a load (those two heavy Clubbells in Full Side Flag). Through his training he has developed mastery of breath, and is able to maintain breath flow AND inner core contraction while bearing weight.
Alberto trains TACFIT or Tactical Fitness, for people who need to be fit for service - specifically special armed forces. In order to remain injury free on the job, a certain amount of mobility is needed. He also uses exercises and compensation movements (aka yoga poses) that help to release residual tension that may may result from carrying heavy equipment and even weapons. Not your typical yogi, but still applying proper flexibility training to his audience. Pictured right, you see the Seal hand position to release the wrists from constant trigger ready position.
If you plan to come to the Clubbell Yoga seminar, you should not miss an opportunity to learn from Alberto Gallazzi the day before. His expertise and top tier coaching will only enhance your understanding of the Clubbell Yoga content.
Big Thank you to Danielle Kleber and Diego Core for hosting us at The Field Training & Lifestyle Centre, and congratulations to their new addition to the family, Pedro. This awesome photo was taken before Pedro made his debut, but we hope to meet him at the seminar :)
