Keith M.’s kettlebell testimonial
Keith’s goals are, in a nutshell, to stay healthy for the long term … in his words, “to be fit now to stay fit later”. In the first six months of his kettlebell training program, he lost almost 4% body fat, gained 11 pounds of muscle, drastically dropped his cholesterol, and has fallen in love with kettlebells 🙂
So in the spirit of June 15th’s Kettlebell Workshop at our Sacramento personal training studio, I’ve put together a complete kettlebell fat loss plan for beginners to introduce you to the joys of kettlebell training … enjoy!
