Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, life seems to get
in the way of your workouts.
Whether it’s a season of travel, sick kids, extra work to
finish up that big project at work or whatever – it’s just
downright hard to get your workouts in.
Sure, if you really focused extra-hard, you probably could

That would take whatever precious energy you have in

“Kettlebell STRONG!” package.
Each workout takes “only” 10 minutes.
However, many people are surprised by just how challenging
the program is so I’ve added in a Bonus “Modifications”
program so you can get a great workout in just 5 minutes.
Imagine that –
A great strength and MetCon workout in “only” 5 minutes
a day – 3 days a week.
Talk about SUPRA-Minimalist!
I don’t think you could find anything this productive anywhere

And when all your friends are complaining about getting
fat because they don’t “have time” to workout, you’ll just
let that smile slip because you know the Truth –
