About

Stephanie Ferguson

Stephanie has been a Kettlebell Kickboxing instructor since 2015. She began by taking Kettlebell Kickboxing classes and also training to the DVDs. She joined the flagship Academy and after a year of steadily training she decided to take the next step by getting certified.

Later, as Stephanie began to dedicate herself to studying and training under Dasha, she also had the opportunity to assist and also teach at the flagship NYC classes.

I love Dasha’s Kettlebell Kickboxing class because it’s so complete. I started the class when I was halfway through my pregnancy and continued until 2 days before my daughter’s birth and I can honestly say that I was in better shape at the end of my pregnancy than I was at the beginning!

More About Stephanie Ferguson

Steph taught and trained Kettlebell Kickboxing pregnant!

Last Saturday Stephanie came to class as she always does, and then two days later went into labor with a baby girl! Stephanie’s husband and new daddy, Michael Craig, also trains at the Academy – doing Phase, Muay Thai, JKD, Kali and BJJ classes on the regular.  The two are often seen walking to class together, holding gym bags, Kali sticks and hands as Stephanie carried their baby.

The greatest lesson anyone can learn

from this is that fitness and health are always better when done with a friend or loved one. The second lesson is simple – when you really love and enjoy something that is good for you, you can find a way to do it through any part of your life; the good, the bad and the most challenging!

So how did Stephanie do such a challenging KB class while pregnant?

It’s about three things: Dedication, Modification, and Will Power! What Stephanie did can be applied to any student who has had an injury, is new to training or has been faced with various challenges. First, you make goals and commit to them, regardless of your restrictions. Then, you modify the class accordingly; perhaps lifting lighter, omitting certain portions of the training (like plyo sets), doing some moves with no added weight, and asking me to work with you before class to modify the specifics to fit your current needs or restrictions.

Most people don’t realize

that within a second, I can take one exercise and make it much easier or less impact driven or I can rev it up and make you regret you ever asked me to make it tougher. It’s all about variation and modification, DON’T be scared to ask me a question after class!
