    I can totally relate and thanks for the laugh about your bathroom habits and the scale 🙂 I may have to give Kettlebells another try. After too many years of chasing small children and trying to stay sane in a stressful job my fitness hasn’t kept up and I have gotten increasingly fluffier. Great inspiration.

      “Thank you for the kind words I’m glad I could make you smile and inspiring someone is the highest compliment.

      I am 47 and a mother of 3 with a full-time job – I want you to know that I get where you are coming from.

      Getting your fitness back takes time like anything else worth doing. Invest that time in yourself. You are worth it and it will make you a better Mom, employee, everything in the end. Good Luck!”

    I hadn’t heard of StrongFirst, sounds like a good community for getting fit. I’ve got a kettlebell but didn’t really know what exercises to do so your tips are helpful

    Yeah, I see those kettlebells at the gym. I often wonder how people use them, and then I think I should try them. Thanks. You’ve given me a push and encouragement to try them out. 🙂

    A good read, I like the personal story and guidance. I think i’d like the pink kettlebell the most – especially to star off with!

    My PT has used kettlebell training with me and yes they certainly build strength. I’m 60 and ecourage women of midlife to be fit, fabulous, healthier and happier. Great to see you getting your certification.

    I can relate to this on many levels— especially the number on the scale. Also, I love that you found a book in your library that guided you! I have never done kettlebells, but this gives me an inspiration to try. Awesome!

    I need to start using these. My arms are getting rather flabby, so these would come in handy.

    The Turkish get up is no joke! I’ve almost been working out for a year now – just turned 40 (yay me!) and it does take practice, balance, strength and a lot of confidence! Great job!

    I have been wanting to give kettlebells a try for years now. I even pinned workouts that use them exclusively! Hopefully I’ll finally get one and get to working out.

    I have heard of kettlebells before but I have never used them, it is interesting to hear you can get some with no weight to help you get the movements going I have mobility issues and perhaps something like that might help with stretching a little?

    I have never heard of kettlebells until now! They look like an amazing way to tone up (which is much needed during this time of the year!).

    I’ve seen the kettlebells but honestly, I have never used them, I never even knew how to use them. It seems by your post that it will be a good idea to try them 🙂

    When I first saw people using the kettle bell in the gym, I was having second thoughts about trying it. Once I tried it, it was amazing to feel your core working. I definitely want to continue to use it.

    Hmmm…not that really gym-goer here, but wanting to go back though. I would definitely give this a try once I go back, looks like a great help for my arms. 🙂
