Through my training at The School of Strength I became fitter, leaner and more defined then before. I love Kettlebell training because it's similar to boxing; the strikes vs. snatch, the breath is the same, the tension and relaxation and the discipline/technique. I was able to run a half marathon with my mother (her first) without running more than five miles prior. I completed the Spartan Sprint and climbed a 20' muddy rope, jumped six foot walls and I'm running the Spartan Super in Chicago. I couldn't have climbed that rope, scaled those walls or ran without the Kettlebell training. Last weekend I ran six miles without running a single mile in five weeks. Kettlebell training offers you the ability to not only increase your strength and endurance but also give you the strength, endurance and mental toughness to train in another sport. Kettlebell training also helps with life tasks; carrying bags of salt, carrying a 75 pound injured child, painting everyday for a week and a half, and so much more. Getting my RKC is one of my most favorite fitness goals I've achieved. If you are tired of knee injuries, high impact exercise and want something fast and effective then train with us.
I want to take the time to discuss my recent physical I received at the Fire Department this year. It was my best physical to date!! I weighed in at just over 180lbs and was asked on two separate occasions if I was a runner. When I stated “no” the x-ray tech doing my chest x-ray said “you have long lungs”. I didn’t even know “long lungs” existed! She stated they normally see that attribute in runners. My reply was simple “I don’t run a lot, but I do Kettlebell Training”. After that I spent time with the N.P. and she reviewed my blood work with me and remarked how it was outstanding. My HDL (Healthy Cholesterol) went up 6 points and my LDL (Lethal) went down. My fasting blood sugar was 80 (and I didn’t fast!) and my b.p. was 100/64 with a resting heart rate of 54. She asked me what I was doing and I told her “I do kettlebell training”. My spirometer test (breathing) was off the charts and she remarked that I must be a runner. At the end she said to “keep doing what you are doing, it is working”. Again, I train with Kettlebells. Nothing fancy or elaborate. Simply Sinister as Pavel would say.
Coach, I think it is important that I share this information so people know this training provides true and real benefits that you don’t always “see” in our training system. I do train hard and I watch my diet, but I still have ice cream and pizza. I just do it in moderation, so I can enjoy it without the regret that comes with it. I work on my breathing while in class and I constantly try and push myself to be better and stronger. I am not worried about keeping up with the next guy, I am worried about keeping up with me!
With the supplements that I use through Beverly International and the training I receive at your facility I have raised the bar for my own physical health in the areas I don’t physically see!
