Eve is a Master Instructor of Kettlebell Concepts. She was the lead author and inspiration behind the first version (2002) of KBC's Level 1 Instructor Course and is the founder of The Primal Roots Center for Activation in Miami, FL.
Roots: A product of the World’s Fair, 1967 where her parents met, she was born in 1974 in New York. Eve learned about eastern philosophies from the first-in-her-family-college educated-non-Catholic Irish father and Christianity from her first-in-her-family-to-leave-Korea-highly-educated Korean mother. They both believed in an innate primal way to live to cultivate health, abundance and prosperity, which started with care of one’s self.
She was born with asthma, Hashimoto’s disease (a congenital hypo-thyroid disease) and such a twisted spine that the doctors gave her a permanent "get out of gym" pass. But nothing could stop her love of movement and the vibrant feelings of being alive that coursed through her veins to her soul as she ran, danced, played, and laughed. Eve spent her whole life, and the last 20 years professionally, living to discover and share practical ways to infuse the self with vital life force to live with passion.
My Purpose: In Eve's words, "I have spent my entire life asking one thing:"What is the best way to live? And I have found that only be answered from within ourselves. Along the way I found only one universal truth that unites us all: The better you care for your health, the greater vital life force you have, the more infused with potential for love and passion to activate and manifest anything that is meaningful to you and whatever you believe in - family, relationships, career and love of life’s special moments. I would like to share what I have discovered with you."
My Mission: To change the reality of the world, one reality at a time, by activating the potential in each of us.
Academics: Eve co-created with Michelle Khai and Dr. Tedd Keating the first kettlebell research in English, which was presented at the NSCA National Conference in 2004.
