Kettlbells - No Pain No Gain!

I have worked out for over fifteen years and have always thought I was in pretty good shape. I worked out most days for one hour, Occasionally 90 minutes a day. My workout of choice was either the treadmill or the elliptical machine.


I took my first Kettlbell class a month ago and I realized that I was not in the shape I thought I was! That first class really showed me what a work-out is about. You could tell that you were really getting a good workout and that many muscles I had not used since who knows when were getting used again.

I left that first class in a bit of shock, I guess it was not what I expected, I am not sure what I expected but that was not it. My sister and I had made out minds up before walking out the door that we would be back for another class. Granted I could barely move the next day, my legs wobbled and I could barely get my own shirt off but I knew I loved it!

I have continued to take the Kettlbell class ever since and I think my body is getting use to the workout now because I can now walk the next day. I love Kettlbells and the workout that goes along with them. If you think you are in shape all you have to do is take a Kettlbell class to know for sure! Best workout I have had in 15 years.

"About 2 weeks ago I read all the ab strengthening stuff on your site because I decided I wanted to be strong, instead of having a lot of belly fat. So I started eating healthier, running, exercising, you name it - everything your site said to do to help. Now I am noticing a real difference! Thank you for making this. :D xD"

[This calorie calculator is] the most useful tool on the web that I can find… Also, I compared the calories calculated by your calculator to the calories calculated by the treadmill at my gym, and they're within a couple calories of each other, so yours is as accurate as we're going to get. REALLY AWESOME TOOL. I love it and depend on it. Thank you sooooo much for making this available."

Thank you very much, I was too lean before 2 years (55 Kgs), after the gym now I'm 72kgs, all the muscles have developed... when someone hand shakes with me it can be squeezed easily, they're making fun of me!
