Lorna Kleidman supports the efforts of Atlanta Councilman H. Lamar Willis, who is trying to log 100 miles in 2013 and encouraging other Atlantans to do the same.

On December 19, Lorna Kleidman issued a statement applauding the efforts of Atlanta councilman H. Lamar Willis to encourage citizens of his city stay in shape.

The article reports that in just one year, Willis was able to lose more than 100 pounds. According to a recent article from ABC News, he already has his next goal in place for 2013: log 100 miles running through Atlanta. The 41-year-old councilman is asking the rest of the city to join him, reports the article, and has already raised $1,000 in sponsorships that will most likely go towards health-related charities.

The article went on to state that Willis didn’t go on any special fad diet or do any crazy exercise regimens. He simply stayed active and watched what he ate.

“Willis hopes to promote his running challenge by pairing with running clubs, senior groups who go on walks and other organizations to get the community involved,” the article said. “Although he is proud of his accomplishments, Willis says it's not all about the weight loss for him. He says he wants to help people understand that losing the weight is not as hard as it might seem and that its benefits are endless.”

Lorna Kleidman, a fitness expert that specializes in kettlebell exercises, applauds Willis’ efforts to keep his city healthy and physically fit.

“It’s important for people to realize that getting in shape doesn’t have to be a grueling process and that anyone can do it, if you set up attainable goals along the way,” Kleidman said. “Incorporating the fun movements of the kettlebell makes it an easier process that can help you to stay healthy.”

Lorna Kleidman is a Three-Time World Champion and World Record holder in kettlebell sport, and the most decorated kettlebell athlete in the country. She developed the innovative methods used in KettleX as a way to bring the benefits of the bells to everyone in an easy-to-use, comprehensive and fun format. Lorna has been teaching individuals and group classes for the past six years.
