What is the Kettlebell

Although it may seem kettlebells are the latest fitness trend in gyms across the U.S., kettlebells have been around for over 350 years. Originally used by the Russians as a counterweight for measuring food sold at markets, this “cannonball with a handle” soon became a favorite training tool of the Russian Army. In the 1940s, the modern kettlebell gained even more popularity as Russia’s national sport.

Today, kettlebells are used globally as a preferred training tool for several military services, athletic teams, and celebrities worldwide.

Quinoa Pilaf with Pine Nuts

Quinoa is a grain that contains essential amino acids lysine, calcium, phosphorus, and iron. It is a great substitute for rice, has an addictive nutty flavor, cooks up quick, and can be used to make pilafs, risottos, salads, soups, and even desserts.

Negative Energy

Do you have goals in mind and something or someone is holding you back from them? Many people have negative energy in their lives. You have to get away from whatever is holding you back from your goals. Many people eat horrible. Those same people, who eat bad, are negative influences on your life. They try to crack jokes and make fun of you because you would rather cook your meals than be eating wings or pizza. There is nothing wrong with being a healthy person. When you eat good, exercise and take care of yourself you feel great.

Hard Work Pays Off

People say you have to work hard to win, well in the sport of wrestling this is definitely true. I wrestled my whole life since I was 5 years old. My father got me into the sport when I was young and I am truly grateful he did today. I had a great career winning 2 W.P.I.A.L titles and placing 2nd and 6th respectly in the state championships in Pennsylvania. I went on to wrestle at Division I Bloomsburg University. My career in wrestling ended early but I learned so much from the sport. I learned the harder you work the better you become.
