THE PACE MAKER a kettlebell challenge and program.
As a complete beginner/novice in kettlebell training, I had certain expectations and concerns going in. As a 61-year-old man that has a very active and athletic lifestyle, I always have safety concerns, especially in a weight training regiment using new and different movements to which I am accustomed. My primary goal is to remain injury-free always and not to miss time away from training. I was very satisfied with your approach as a trainer in your starting with a minimal load and the progressive incremental increases.

My uneducated expectation was that this beginner’s course would have more elaborate and advanced movements as one would see on the internet. The movements used were more of a basic variety which suited me just fine. I liked the fact that you took the time to fully explain each movement, pointing out different postures to assume during the course of that exercise, and also that you include a video of common mistakes during the performance of such. There was sufficient instruction with each exercise so as to give clarity of the movement and I found this to be perfect for someone at my level.

Starting out I downloaded all the material first and read through all the written material before venturing onto the video. Because much of the terminology was new to me I had to return to the written material after progressing in the warmup and introduction of the program. This was to be expected as I wanted to understand fully each level before moving to the next. I also returned to the kickoff video after watching later videos because again I needed to have an understanding of the terms and exercises before moving forward. The instruction is thorough and fits well for someone on a beginner’s level.

Insomuch of the program itself, I as a beginner liked the format very much and was not overwhelmed. I was very comfortable starting with light weight and repetition and challenging myself from there. I also like that I will be able to modify this workout to my needs as I go along. The videos were of a good length and kept me engaged.

The kettlebell offers a different type of workout and one that I can do at home or travel with minimal equipment.
In closing, I liked this particular regime very much as an entry-level to kettlebell and liked the depth and pace of the instruction. It is my intention to continue working on this program and see where it leads me. Thank you again and best regards,
