In this episode I’m chatting with certified Kettlebell expert, Kathryn Blaze. She shares how shifting her focus from Pilates, dance, and ballet to include weights and kettlebell training changed her life.
When an injury led to a prescription for strength training, her resistance (pun intended) to hit the weights was not unusual for most women. As a lifelong dancer and Pilates/dance fitness instructor, she was drawn to activities that took advantage of her natural flexibility… but It didn’t take long for Kathryn to see that getting stronger translated to so many other benefits – physically and mentally!
Now a trainer who encourages functional training and helping her clients get strong for everyday activities, like carrying small children and Costco runs, she shares her best tips for dipping your toe into the world of weightlifting.
