As you know, I’m a huge fan of kettlebells and especially of Jeff Martone. He is absolutely the kettlebell master! So when I was informed by his business manager that he had a copy of Jeff’s latest book in the mail for me, so I could review it, I was beyond ecstatic. I waited near the mail box like a little kid waiting to open Christmas presents. At last it arrived: Jeff Martone’s KETTLEBELL WODbook! I immediately skimmed through the pages, analyzing the pictures, formats, layout, and length of the book. (And, to be honest, to see if I was in any of the pics ). I couldn’t wait. It was like I wanted to read the entire book in one minute! After my quick perusal, I sat down with some good eats and carefully began to read page by page, jotting down notes, so I could give feedback to Jeff and his crew. I was super excited and in fact honored to be reviewing this great new work. I was delighted to see that the book had journal entry options, so one can record the particulars of their own workouts on a day to day basis. I was also surprised to see that he shared his own workouts that prep him to get into shape for one of his competitions. He is, after all, a master in the sport and sharing something like that is like hitting the jackpot. In the world of kettlebells, Jeff is a genius. I was sold! I knew I had to share this book with all my friends, followers, and social media sites. Jeff is not only an amazing friend, mentor and role model, but he is a living example of what defines fitness. He puts in hard work, chooses what works for him, and executes it in a smart fashion. I am proud to know him and appreciate his trusting me to offer my input.
