Kettlebells: Twice the Results in Half The Time. (Check out this study)

Well I sure didn't need a research study to prove to me that using kettlebells will result in astounding  fat burning and strength results in half the time.  Upon discovering proper movement pattern training using kettlebell methods, it was clear to me when properly implemented in a balanced way, that one can get a killer workout in the most efficient way.

 Training methods that have worked well, will usually result in a mass of people jumping on the bandwagon.  When I first began using kettlebells, it was a rarity if someone knew what this hunk of iron was actually all about.

When I was fresh out of college, I was employed at a corporate gym as a personal trainer. The owner stopped me from teaching the kettlebell methods to their clientele. The owners believed the method looked dangerous and would scare off their clients. I knew deep down inside that this type of training was going to give these people a new found motivation where t…

Michele's Amazing Pregnancy and Labor from using Kettlebells

More and more women are now being introduced to kettlebells. Which means there will be more women who will want to use them safely during their pregnancy.

Recap of the Jan 2010 Kettlebell Workshop

I had an awesome time at yesterdays kettlebell workshop. A great way to start off the beginning of 2010. This workshop was held at an amazing facility in Encinitas, Crossfit Counter Culture. This facility is beautifully set up for the serious exerciser. There is nothing fluffy about this gym except for the bumping sound system and flat screen TV. Other than that, it's filled with hard style training equipment that's meant to be used for the hardcore exerciser. This is an ideal place to train and I felt right at home.




Every time I teach a new workshop I learn more and more. With so many different body types and backgrounds there will always be something unique I can work with and hopefully fix. Presenting at workshops is such a rewarding experience. To work with a group who all have such different backgrounds, yet come together with kettlebells! To see the proud look on each persons face when they have that moment when something clicks. "Ahh haaaa, so that's how it…
