I moved to Milwaukee about 2 years ago and was looking for a way to get in shape. I used to live in the middle of nowhere, and we only had standard gyms which never seemed to work for me. I’d heard about kettlebells from people in the military and people interested in self defense. They were using kettlebells with great results.

It really helps to prevent injuries—that’s really the biggest thing. Of course kettlebells also build stamina, strength, and all the things any martial artist needs.
I feel like my disability has made me a better athlete because it forced me to really focus not just on heavy lifting, but to learn how to move more intelligently. I have emphasized the muscle-mind connection more since becoming an amputee. Being an amputee has really taught me how to be a better, more adaptable athlete with endless possibilities.
I tried to approach fitness in the same way, but I was humbled at every juncture either by injury or just lack of ability—I could see where I wanted to go in my mind, but I didn’t have the right tools yet.

Right along with those “game-changers” is the kettlebell—and even more, the kettlebell swing. Both the kettlebell and the kettlebell swing are GREAT and have truly changed the fitness industry for the BETTER.
My definition of fitness is feeling your best, performing your best, and third—the lowest priority—is looking your best. If I do everything I can to feel and perform my best then I'm going to look my best.

Durability. There are few things more coveted by coaches and athletes than the ability to perform every time the team takes the field. There is nothing more disastrous than an injury for a high level athlete. Ask anyone on a team, their number one fear is a catastrophic injury.

Cupcakes for breakfast and Pringles chips for snacks - these were hallmarks of my youth. Now, even though I still have a lot of time ahead of me (as I am a high school student-athlete), this nonetheless means that I spent a decade of my life gorging on fattening foods and growing complacent in the typical sedentary American lifestyle.
I was determined to learn about kettlebells, so for the first 2-3 years I probably went to every class Mike had! I soaked up as much info as I could from him.
