Form Follows Function…


“”I have been coached by major league baseball players and highly credentialed strength and conditioning coaches in my college softball and fire fighting careers, and no one helped me reach my strength and body composition goals like Jim.
I dropped almost 5% body fat lifting kettlebells and conditioning with Jim. I have never been able to experience strength gains and cut out body fat without my legs and glutes bulking up too much until I started the Idaho Kettlebell workouts. Jim understands the different demands placed on the body in both athletic and tactical movements and has helped me strengthen my shoulder tremendously. As a former Olympic Lifter and Power Lifter, I did not expect the results to be the same from kettlebells, but they were even better and healthier for my body. Working with Jim will give you better strength and power than Olympic lifting and will protect and strengthen your joints instead of beat them down.

I am a personal trainer and have a BS in Exercise Science, but I have learned what it takes to be a great trainer from Jim.” – Katy Luetke BS Exercise Science, Personal Trainer, Firefighter I -CalFire, College of Idaho Softball Alumni

New Article in Kettlebell Inc Online Magazine.

I recently had an article featured in Kettlebell Inc’s online kettlebell magazine. It contains an awesome 4-week kettlebell press and swing workout.

Visit Kettlebell Inc to download the entire magazine, including a great new article on kettlebell training for new parents.

I have used this exact program on a wide variety of people and they all have had similar results: Increased strength, lost body fat, cardiovascular efficiency, increased flexibility and even better posture.

This has been the case for everyone: Firefighters, high school athletes, grandmothers, doctors, paramedics, and everyone in between. There has not been one exception.

This has led me to make every new trainee at Idaho Kettlebells start on this program as soon as possible. My success rides on their results. This does not fail to deliver.

Katy (pictured above) is one example. Her lean physique is mostly due to kettlebell training, using my methods. As a firefighter, her goal is to be as strong and fast as possible, at the lowest possible bodyweight. Since her life could depend on her cardiovascular efficiency, she also looks for a way to gain every possible advantage. Kettlebells deliver. Form follows function.

Here are a couple new videos from Idaho Kettlebells:
