Kettlebell Success Story – Meet Mark!

Today, I want to introduce you to Mark.

Mark is a successful kettlebell student of mine, and completed a six training program similar to Kettlebell Strong.

He was training on his own prior to us working together, with some success …

But as you’ll see in his success story below, it was the kettlebell training that took off the last 25 pounds, has helped him KEEP the weight off, as well as helping him to increase strength, overall fitness, and truly change his life!


Mark Blasted His Fat Loss Plateau with Kettlebells

“I started doing some bodybuilding type exercises in my garage. I tried to set up a little garage gym with some dumbbells and a weight bench. I got myself down to about 190 and kind of getting back into shape and started to do a little bit of running. But then I started to get bored and I had kind of hit the wall and I wasn’t saying any more progress.

A friend of mine had been working out with Forest and seeing some results and mentioned that Forest had a kettlebell class.

So I said, ‘okay, that sounds interesting. I’ve never seen these kettlebells before but anything that can be described as a cannonball with a handle, I’m going to check that out.’

So I signed up for the kettlebell class. It was a six week class and it kicked my butt every class but I loved it. It burned me out, I was tired but I felt great and I was excited about my workouts again. The other things about the kettlebells is that I ordered a couple and it was a workout that I could do at home. So it was easy. No excuse to not work out.

So I’m working out with kettlebells at home, getting the strength but also getting the endurance. Getting blasted and I started seeing myself losing weight again. I’ve been working out with the kettlebells, doing a little more running. I’ve actually signed up with Forest and we did some one-on-one training for awhile and Forest helped me get my strength up a little bit and showed me some more workouts that I could do at home. Also some variations on the workouts with the kettlebells at home, integrating some of the things that I had been doing.

Here I am today down between 165 and 170. I’m never bored with my workouts because I can always switch it up. I know that I have a wide variety of things that I can do at home if I can’t make it to the gym. I’m always able to mix it up and keep it fresh.”
