As a newbie in working with kettlebells, be sure to work with a trainer who is certified with reputable organizations. The last thing you want is to YouTube a “well known” leader or take advice from a trainer who "thinks" he knows what to do based off being a trainer themselves. Kettlebells are a very technical tool and if not used properly, can be very dangerous. So always keep in mind, safety first.
The Kettlebell Chicks Movement has been brewing since 2009 as the result of my own personal journey. Personal training, like many other male driven industries, has been difficult for me as a female. I began my experience with kettlebell training in 2004. I actually thought I was pretty fit until my first contact with a 25 pound kettlebell. My training buddy at the time would meet me three times a week for one hour. After three months of consistent training, my KB weight went up to the 35 and 50 pound weight. Long story short, not only was I in even better shape, but I could swing and squat and do moves men twice my height and weight could not.
