Several weeks ago, I received a request for a beginner-friendly kettlebell workout, and while I was more than happy to oblige – I always want to make the workouts that you want to do! – I really struggled with that word “beginner.”
Many moons ago, when I first started posting on YouTube, I sprinkled that word around like confetti! Every workout was for beginners! Even the ones that most certainly were not.
The problem wasn’t in my ability as a trainer (though I was still quite new to the business side of fitness, and had only a few years of practical experience with clients), but was much more an issue with my confidence. I was so very afraid of “somebody” complaining about my workouts not being hard enough. (side note: ha!)
Since then I’ve come to a much better understanding of the wide range of fitness abilities and strengths and less-than-strengths that we all bring to the table, and there’s one thing that I can state with complete confidence:
The word BEGINNER means something different to each of us.
Your beginner is somebody else’s pie-in-the-sky goal.
Somebody else’s beginner is your, “Oh, that was way too easy.”
And MY beginner? Well, I’ve actually stopped using that word.
What I want for you, my friend, no matter where you are on your fitness journey, is CONFIDENCE.
So today, we’re working on our KETTLEBELL CONFIDENCE with this quick, 20-minute high-low workout designed for fast and FUN body-shaping results! With simple (but not easy!) exercises and plenty of explanation, this routine is great for BEGINNERS and beyond.
Follow along with the video below or check out the breakdown to take it on the go.
