Spencer Ross: Down Under International Championship 2013
My son Spencer has been selected to represent the State of New Jersey in the Down Under Games hosted in Australia this coming July, 2013. It will be an incredible experience for him and a great opportunity for you to help an inspiring Olympian reach his goals.
The competition is open only to this year’s Junior class and below. The competition is an Olympics for High School aged athletes. Spencer is one of the top shot putters in his age group in the country. Last Spring Track Season he threw a personal best of 55’5.25 and placed third in the NJHS State Groups (2nd in his section and 3rd in the Discus). Check out his State Meet Stats at: http://nj.milesplit.com/
2013 marks the 14th year of the Down Under Games. I checked the winning throw from the 2013 Down Under Games Shot put competition – Spencer could win the Shot Put and you would have helped a World Champion Achieve!
Below is a Sponsorship for in PDF format. What I’m asking you to do is do what you are able to help. If you have, belong to or know someone in a corporation or group that would be willing and able to sponsor Spencer in his Quest, please forward them the attached PDF Sponsorship form.

Whether or not you choose to forward this, contribute or do nothing with it; my son and I would like to thank you for your time and support. If you have any other additional questions, do not hesitate to contact me either via e-mail or phone.

Martial Arts & Kettlebell Master, Phil Ross becomes a Certified Bodyweight Specialist. In the first ever Bodyweight Strength certification conducted by Master of Sport Pavel Tsatsouline (the man responsible for bringing Kettlebell Training to the US), held in St. Paul Minnesota October 13th and 14th, some 60 participants were in attendance. The students were training in the progressions of mastery of the Bodyweight Strength Development and Master Phil Ross was one of the 15 participants to pass the exam and receive certification upon the course completion, earning the title of Bodyweight Strength Specialist. Master Ross, getting set to celebrate his 50th Birthday this October, was the only participant over the age of 40 to receive certification. He will be launching his “Fit and Fifty” program and posting YouTube clips adding more training tips to his active Phil Ross channel
Below is a write up regarding some training benefits from the training:
Naked Warrior Certification/Workshop: Phil Ross, RKC Team Leader, 8th Degree Black Belt
The workshop consisted of an incredible amount of extremely useful strength and balance developing techniques as well as strategies. The progressions to the specific tasks were particularly relevant because you are gaining useable, practical, applicable strength while you are learning strength skills. Some people may never be able to execute a one arm push-up, pistol, an L-sit pull-up or handstand push-up, but they will achieve significant strength gains and improve their lives through their strength practice.
People may think that if they can’t do a one-arm push-up, there’s no need to train in this fashion. That would be akin to telling a runner not to run, because they will never be able to run a sub 10 second 100 meter sprint. Nonsense, incredible strength and body linkage is developed with body weight training and that results in improved performance in strength, kettlebell training, weight lifting, sport, martial arts and daily life. If a student is able to perform a pull up and 20 two-legged squats, they will certainly be able to carry a bag of groceries up a flight of stairs.
Results are achieved by consistent, intelligent training patterns. Exercise discipline in your training. Build slowly and do not skip any level of the progression. That may result in “gaps” in your strength and prevent you from attaining the highest level of proficiency. Achieving real strength does not occur overnight, it’s a process. Quick gains lead to injury and rob one of their potential. Strength is a marathon, not a sprint. It’s a long process, but the results can last a lifetime!
On Saturday, August 18th, seven American Eagle MMA & Kettlebell trainers became certified in Hardstyle Kettlebell training. The 10 hour certification was incredible. A great deal of information was shared with the group. There were 13 additional participants from NJ, NY, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Pennsylvania.
Senior RKC Max Shank was a wealth of knowledge. Kettlebell technique, general strength and class programming were covered.There were 7 members of the American Eagle MMA & Kettlebell school certified as Hard Style Kettlebell Instructors.
American Eagle MMA & Kettlebells facility owner RKC Team Leader Phil Ross, was very proud of his students’ accomplishments. Nykole & Spencer Ross of Mahwah, Jennifer Chaparian of Allendale, Zack Fox of Saddle River, Larry Buchwalter of Ridgewood, John Hartman of Park Ridge and Cathy Raimonda, the studio’s Operation Manager from Glen Rock all became HKC Certified Kettlebell Instructors.
