Katie's Kettlebell Journey - from Beginner to HKC in Modesto California

By Katie Harrell, HKC

I started training with kettlebells with Adrienne Harvey of GiryaGirl.com in May of 2011 when I lived in Florida. The kettlebell bug bit me pretty hard. I have struggled with being heavy and out-of-shape for my entire life. Needless to say, the results of training have been extremely gratifying. Being a musician, I understand the importance of practice, and the concept is applicable to kettlebell training. Like music, strength is a skill that is improved over time and will never cease improving. Apart from the fact that kettlebell has this crossover into my life as a musician, I also have an amazing trainer who inspires me. Because of her encouragement and talent as a trainer, I felt prepared to delve into the HKC challenge. Even after I moved to Oakland, California in August, Adrienne continued to coach me via Skype and cheered me on all the way from the East Coast.

VERY Proud of new HKC Katie, Thoughts on Haywire, Chinese New Year and MORE!

One of my first kettlebell clients really got into it in a big big big way - she started training with me at the very beginning and it feels like a million years ago. I remember meeting her in a park and teaching her how to do a Swing for the first time.  We also went through the get up and then we just had a little time to do 1 arm swings.   We continued to train and swap recipes over the following months.  She began to make rapid progress, mainly due to the diligence of her at-home practice along with attention to detail.   As a musician, she understood the importance of practice and applied this towards her workouts.
