I've had some back and hip issues that kept me from being as active as I wanted. I come to FitForLife to see Greg Pappas, as I had heard from a friend that Greg is good at helping people rehab old injuries. We started off slow, with just some basic body weight exercises. Greg showed me some joint mobility exercises that I continue to do today to keep my body in check. We steadily made progress with my injuries and now I am back to being as active as I want. Awesome!
I was introduced to Kettlebell training by Greg Pappas, RKC. Personally I was looking to get back into shape but was tired of the same old gym routine. Enter the Kettlebell! I was hooked after Greg put me through my first workout (which last about 4 minutes). Since then, I have lost 15 lbs of body fat, and my blood pressure and cholesterol have gone down dramatically. Professionally, I have implemented kettlebell training into rehab programs for patients with a wide variety of ailments from low back pain, to shoulder instability. Kettlebells have literally changed my life and I enjoy passing it along to others.
I was always an active individual, participating in a number of team sports as well as extremely consistent about my individual exercising routine that included various weights and cardio on a daily basis. I always kept my weight down but never truly noticed an exceptional difference in my body. Once I was introduced to kettlebells and began using them, I was shocked at how quickly my body changed. I began to have longer, leaner muscles, not only through each area of my arms, but as well as my back and most everywhere including my core. I have limited time to work out every day and I believe that kettlebells are the most efficient and fulfilling way to push yourself and feel great. Kettlebells have exceeded all my expectations.
