I’m sitting here at the Venice airport thinking about
the past week.
It was a GREAT week.
I flew over here to teach an Original Strength workshop
on Saturday and a “Kettlebell STRONG!” workshop on
Both were received incredibly well.
But that’s not really the point.
The point is what kettlebells have allowed me to do –
And more importantly –
What they [will] allow you to do.
Think about this for a minute –
You have in your hand – or hands – if you’re using a pair
– a portable gym.
You no longer have to waste money every month on a
health club membership only to have to wipe someone
else’s sweat of the machines and wait in line for the
treadmill, elliptical, or stairclimber…
… Nor run up your credit card for the latest designer
fashion wear to put on to go to the gym only to discover
that those Lulu-Lemon pants are see-through…
… Nor sit in rush hour traffic to go to the gym after work
only to get down to Chrome & Fern Fitness to work
in with the other 20 guys waiting for the bench press…
… Nor pack a gym bag and your breakfast to go down to
Globo-Gym before work and leave your protein shaker
baking in the afternoon sun in the backseat of your car
only to get back to the car to discover the lid popped open
from the heat and your car now smells like a mixture
of vomit and dead animals…
… Nor do you have to follow the US Department of
Whatever’s or the American Association of Overweight
Know-It-All’s guidelines of 30 minutes of strength training
and 60 minutes of cardio a week only to discover 3 months
later that you’ve made exactly zero progress in losing
your “spare” body fat…
Because of the kettlebell these major inconveniences
are a thing of the past.
Now you can work out in the comfort of your home (in
your underwear if you want to) in as little as 20 to 30
minutes a day – in only 3 days a week.
You don’t need to “target” this muscle or “blast” another.
You now work them all together – as a unit – the way
they’re designed to move – instead of the way the
fitness equipment manufacturers think they’re supposed
to work – isolated – on one machine at a time.
You get your “cardio” in at the same time –
Especially if use the right sets and right reps.
Kettlebells are a game changer.
They save you time.
They save you money.
They save you energy.
And they might just save your life.
Sure, there’s always the health issues…
… decreased cholesterol, blood pressure, etc…
But there’s also the boredom issue.
You know, the mind-numbing, soul-crushing, spirit-sucking
hum-drum of the monotonous routine life.
If you’d told me 13 years ago when I’d first started using
kettlebells that they would’ve opened up a whole new
Or literally opened up the world to me so I could travel –
I wouldn’t have been able to comprehend it.
And the Truth is, when you use your kettlebells correctly,
they will return your time, energy, and money back to
many times over.
And that of course means new opportunities for doing
fun, new, exciting things that would otherwise be impossible
following the traditional fitness guidelines.
Think about it – kettlebells create freedom.
Gotta run – we’re about to board.
P.S. When you’re looking for a kettlebell program that
will maximize your ROI – Return On Investment – and
give you more freedom to do the things you want or have
always wanted to do – this is the one for you.
