Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) March 14, 2013
On March 14, fitness expert Lorna Kleidman congratulates Bill Esch on the recent national record that he achieved in kettlebell sport. In an interview with the Omaha World-Herald, Esch discussed his training methods.
Esch is the 32-year-old owner of Smith and Esch Fitness Systems in Omaha, Nebraska. Kettlebells are a fixture of his gym, and last month he was able to place first in a tournament in California. During the tournament, “Esch lifted two 70.5-pound bells for 71 reps in 10 minutes,” according to the article. Although he was just three reps shy of the world record, he was still able to break an American record.
Esch said he was always interested in sports, and when he started playing football at a very young age he became interested in weightlifting. He only started lifting with kettlebells in 2011.
Kettlebell world champion Lorna Kleidman comments on Esch's success. “The fact that Esch only got involved with kettlebells in 2011 is remarkable, considering his meteoric rise,” said Kleidman, who is a kettlebell world record holder herself. “His passion for wellness and nutrition sets a great example for people looking to improve their lives.”
Esch went on to say that exercising with kettlebells provides a kind of escape from the world. “I'll zone out as I do it because I'm so focused on my breath. It brings you into the present. You have to forget the pain, how tired you are,” he said in the article.
“It’s important to remember that not everyone has to have an approach as intense as Esch or myself in order to see great results,” Kleidman said. “Kettlebells are the perfect fitness tool because with a little training even a beginner can jump right in and have a fun, effective workout.”
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.
