I didn't grow up playing sports and I was never good at them. The word athlete didn't exist in my life. Strength training was the one thing I was always interested in and I always admired strong, muscular physiques. Although I enjoyed strength training and was told by trainers that I had good form, I was very sporadic with my training out of boredom and stagnation. I got "toned" but I never actually got strong.
In my early 30's, after never having a weight problem, I found myself more than 40 lbs overweight and struggling to lose it. Through proper nutrition, I lost weight but I struggled for years to keep it off and to keep a consistent workout schedule. And I continued my pattern of sporadic training.

"Enter The Kettlebell."

All of that changed when I discovered kettlebells. I was having fun practicing my kettlebell technique while getting a great workout, and I wasn't getting bored or stagnating. I was lifting weights I never thought possible and building strength and muscles I didn't know I had. Because of my new-found strength and proper movement patterns, I was overcoming back pain from several herniated disks as well as a nagging knee problem. I also found that I had an easier time maintaining my weight.

I became a better cyclist, finally completing the Bike MS 150 mile 2-day bike tour, with NO knee or back pain and very little on-the-bike training! I tried snowboarding for the first time and did better than I imagined. I bent a bolt. I did my first pull up. I completed a sprint triathlon, again with very little tri-specific training. I found that I was becoming more adventurous and willing to try new physical activities because I finally had confidence in my physical abilities. I finally realized that I am an athlete. 

My life was improving so greatly, I decided that I wanted to share this amazing tool with others. It takes time, passion and dedication to become an RKC instructor. I embarked on the journey of becoming an RKC so that I could help others reach their strength and fitness goals, find their inner athlete and become Iron Clad.

10/10 Recomend
By Irina Lef / Denver, US

I definitely can recommend this studio. The groups are small and atmosphere is friendly. You can come with experience or without it, but the result will be amazing. Shari is a great instructor, very attentive to details. She is very dedicated and intense, has the best credentials as a trainer. Shari built her training such way that I feel personal attention every time I come to the class. If a student has some health problem, Shari will adjust training to improve one's conditions and make eventually feel better and stronger. Classes include not only kettlebels exercises but elements of yoga, endurance, and cardio training. All of it is very effective. I had previous weight lifting and yoga experience but I definitely have good improvement in my strength and flexibility training with Shari. Thank you, very much, Shari!

10/10 Five months at Iron Clad Fitness
By John Baril / Arvada, United States

After five months, I'm still so eager to attend classes and learn as much as I possibly can. Shari is a phenomenal teacher of technique; it's amazing how eagle-eyed she is during class. That said, Shari is also very dedicated to helping us to constantly improve and, perhaps most importantly, to understand why we should and how we can. I have gotten stronger, more limber and the Iron Clad ethos generally has helped to improve my running. I've worked with numerous trainers and in several gyms and tried several "systems" and this is by far the best. Thanks, Shari!!

10/10 Strong and confident
By Laura McArthur / Denver, United States

Thanks to Shari I have found so much strength and confidence in my body. She is a fabulous instructor and answers my questions warmly and knowledgeably. She has created an environment where all fitness levels can come and train together thanks to her personal attention to everyone's levels and needs.

10/10 Outstanding trainer!
By Wayne Pallas / Littleton, United States

I have been working one-on-one with Shari for over a year as she helped me prepare for my HKC certification. I have worked with other trainers in the past, and there is no comparison. Shari's technical expertise, general knowledge about fitness, manner, and ability to communicate are exceptional. I would recommend her without hesitation to anyone interested in becoming a better athlete.

10/10 Train with Denver's Best
By Olivia S. / Denver, United States

When I was "kettlebell curious" I searched the web for an RKC instructor near my home and happened upon Shari's Iron Clad Fitness. How I lucked into finding her I will never know, but I am ever grateful! Under Shari's expert and uncompromising instruction I have found a new love in physical challenge AND have become stronger than I've ever been in my life. As a recovering endurance junkie I had literally run my body ragged. I knew that I needed a whole new approach to fitness, one that would focus on stability and strength along with a cardio component. Kettlebell training seemed promising for that and my training with Shari has far exceeded my expectations, Now I get the endorphin high I used to get from running long distances in a challenging and efficient workout...and instead of ruining my joints and connective tissue I feel like I am giving them protection and forttfication. There's a reason she was promoted to RKC Team Leader. She drives for perfection in her own training and she holds the same expectation for her students. Because of her unrelenting attention to detail I know that I am learning the absolute correct way to execute every movement and I know I will always be challenged to improve. She represents the RKC as both a science and an art, and her enthusiasm for it is infectious.

Shari helped me prepare for RKC. I continue to train with her and my techniques and conditioning improve with each session. I recommend to any level student.

10/10 Inspiring
By Aaron Pierson RKC TL / Fort Collins, US

I met Shari a few years ago and have had the privilege of working with her on many occasions. Shari holds the very quality I look for in a coach, trainer and RKC instructor! She is a very talented and passionate trainer with an incredible eye for technique. I would highly recommend Shari to anybody

10/10 Skinny Jeans For The First Time!
By Rachelle A / Philadelphia, PA, USA

I didn't have much weight to lose, only 10 lbs, but sometimes that's the hardest to lose. With Shari’s guidance, I was able to lose that weight in 2 months. She showed me how to make changes to my diet. I also added kettlebells to my exercise routine. They previously hurt my back when I used them, but Shari helped me with my technique and it made all the difference. My thighs and butt needed the most toning and Kettlebells really helped firm them up and everywhere else too. I’m wearing skinny jeans for the first time in my life!

10/10 Passionate instructor
By Anna F / Littleton, CO, USA

I have had the great opportunity to train with Shari. Prior to her training, I had no experience with kettlebells. Shari is extremely patient in teaching proper form. Her emphasis on correct technique and safety ensure a successful and enjoyable kettlebell workout. Shari goes above and beyond to make sure you are progressing as you want and attaining your individual goals. With her instruction, I found I was able to push myself beyond what I expected. The environment of her classes are comfortable, fun, and tailored to each individuals abilities. Shari's passion and drive as an RKC instructor are contagious and I would highly recommend her classes for a great and challenging workout!

10/10 Amazing results
By Dana R / Denver, CO, USA

Shari is great and so is the RKC. You can make this an amazing workout and with Shari's attention to detail you know that you are getting maximum results in a short period. I have firmed up all over and I am in awe of the progress in a short period of time.
