10/10 Kettle Bell Class - LOVE IT!
By Joel Botwin / Schaumburg, USA

The girlfriend and I recently signed up for a beginner Kettlebell class at the local park district, where Taki was the instructor. This was my first exercise class of any kind, so I was a little nervous about looking dumb or out of sync with everyone else. I was happy that even after our first session, I felt like there was someone there who could explain the proper techniques to us all so that we had good form and didn't hurt ourselves. It takes a little getting used to moving a kettlebell around your body and Taki would always do a very good job of demonstrating the exercise and giving us little hints and tips that made some of the more difficult ones easier to remember. The workouts are well balanced as well so that the entire body gets a workout. Each week the workout routine changes so nothing becomes stale. We're pushed hard, but no so hard that I ever consider quitting. I like that the most, because I know I'll get a great workout without over-doing it. We'll be signing up for the next class as well!

9/10 Taki will get you in shape
By Cecilia Sweeney / Schaumburg, U.S.

Taki is very thorough and patient. Kettlebells is a tough workout but he keeps it interesting so you come back for more fun(?). Would recommend Taki to anyone interested in kettlebells or personal training.

I thoroughly enjoy the classes that Taki puts together for us. He does a wonderful job of incorporating a variety of methods to keep things fresh and us using different muscles and skills. He is very conscientious about ensuring that we always use proper form. Also, he runs a very effective class while encouraging a fun and friendly environment. He challenges, he cares, and he is very knowledgeable.

9/10 Challenging instructor
By Sue Noland / Schaumburg, USA

Taki is a great trainer; his workouts have a lot of variety and always keep us on our toes! He keeps a careful eye on our form and is good at correcting without being overbearing. He cares about the various physical challenges that some have and makes suggestions for alternative exercises. I see him pushing himself personally, and I like that in a trainer.

Taki is very patient with all level of KB students. He does a great job keeping our group individually challenged and always makes certain we are using proper form. He recently began incorporating a wide variety of challenging exercises into our normal kettle bell routine which makes his class enjoyable. We have a consistent enrollment and seem to keep adding to the size of the group as a whole. Great to see Taki's hard work and dedication to the RKC certification.
