“I’ve never been the athletic type or into fitness… I didn’t play sports growing up, and I had never stuck with a workout program for more than two weeks. In fact, when a friend from work encouraged me to try some kettlebell classes at TNT, I remember warning the trainers that I wouldn’t last much more than two weeks. However, the classes proved to be quick, fun and effective, and I ended up loving the classes and trainers. Now, it’s almost three years later and at 39 weeks pregnant I still can’t stay away from TNT or stop talking about how great the classes are to anyone who is willing to listen. I honestly cannot express how much this gym means to me!”
“Before I started at TNT Performance five years ago, I weighed the most I had in my life at 215 lbs (5’10” tall). I had decided to adjust my diet and began running. I lost 20 lbs in about six months but stalled and could not lose any more weight. My lower back hurt daily, and running was starting to take a toll on my knees. I needed another option, but heavy weightlifting and spending hours in the gym was not viable with my work/life schedule.
Then a co-worker convinced me to give kettlebell training a try. I was apprehensive but knew I needed a change. The first few workouts were painful (in a good way) and eye opening. While I started to tone up and get stronger, the coaches were very helpful in tracking my nutrition and making small changes over a several month period. The training combined with a new healthy eating lifestyle changed my life forever.
When I began at TNT, I weighed 195 lbs and had 26% body fat. Today I weigh 178 lbs with a body fat ranging from 15%-17%. I am stronger than I have ever been in my life and, at 50 years of age, weigh what I did in high school.
All of this does require work. The instructors have taught me there is nothing for free… ‘You cannot out swing a donut,’ resonates in the gym. But it isn’t as much work as you would think. I train three days per week for an average of 40 minutes for each workout. As a guy with chronic back and knee problems, I find kettlebell training to be very safe and less toll on my body than traditional weight training methods. I recommend kettlebell training at TNT to anyone who wants a fun and energetic workout in a supportive environment.”
“I attended my first kettlebell class at TNT in 2011 looking for something ‘different’ and was instantly hooked. I have always considered myself to be a relatively fit person, but had gotten bored with my usual routine and classes at the gym. Before I began consistently taking classes at TNT, I definitely lacked upper body strength and couldn’t do a push-up to save my life! TNT changed all of that. Workouts are designed to be challenging and effective, yet simple enough that anyone can do them once they learn the basic movements. And did I mention quick? Forty-five minutes and you’ve done your strength and cardio for the day. And all of the instructors are knowledgeable and genuinely care about your progress and goals.
The strength I have gained through classes at TNT has also had a positive impact on other activities I enjoy, such as yoga and cycling. One of my favorite things about TNT is the camaraderie among all of the people who take classes there – people of all ages and fitness levels sweating it out together and having fun while doing it!”
