Kettlebells: Back before they were cool

Kettlebells are amazing tools. I completed two kettlebell training courses in 1997. One with the Ranger Training Brigade and one with Troy university. The instructor was a special forces soldier from Estonia. He wasn't some famous guy. Hell, I don't even remember his name. Nobody even knew what kettlebells were back then. There were no certifications, no diplomas, no titles, no rivalries. Just technical instruction and hard training. I have been using and teaching kettlebells ever since.

Just another fitness tool that has been part of my program before it became cool.
