I started training at FIREBELLZ in 2010, 4 weeks after having my third baby. I had always been a runner, but steered away from any kind of weight training because I didn’t want to “bulk up”. At first, I thought I would give this kettlebell thing a try to get back into shape and maybe lose some of the baby weight. After my husband and I started doing personals with Deserie and Charles Bustos, I was hooked! I loved how challenging and rewarding the workouts were. After just a few weeks, I lost the baby weight and then some. I was in the best shape of my life and my body was starting to look defined, not bulky.
After several months of attending classes and personals, Deserie and Charles pushed me to do something I had never imagined I could do. In August of 2011, I was on a plane to San Diego, family in tow, to become RKC certified. This is one of the most challenging things I had faced both physically and mentally, and with the help of the entire FIREBELLZ team, I was able to conquer the challenge.
I continue to train at FIREBELLZ and every day, I become stronger and my endurance is through the roof! I couldn’t imagine living an active lifestyle without kettlebells.
I hope to be an inspiration to other mothers out there and show them that just because you’re a mom, does not mean that you have to neglect your body.
