"Discovered My Inner Jock"
When I started taking kettlebell class I was really out of shape and could barely lift even the lightest of kettlebells. One of the great things about the workout now is how strong I feel. I have lost weight and over 3 inches from my waist and hips. I am finally losing the baggage that I've carried around since I was the last kid picked for teams in elementary school. I've discovered my inner jock and I like her a whole lot! Not only that, but cholesterol levels have dropped from 200 to 160. Griffin's kettlebell class has been a wonderful for my health and confidence. I highly recommend this workout to anyone looking to make changes quickly and effectively.
"Strength Gains and Improved Cardio"
I have been doing kettlebell training with Griffin for about 8 months. Not only have I lost weight, but I have more muscle and definition than I have ever had and on top of that, I feel great!
It has been an incredible experience. I was a bit a hesitant of kettlebell and thought that kettlebell training was for men and would be too much strength training for me. It was quite the opposite!
The training has strengthened my core and helped improve my cardio workout! I am so glad I met Griffin and got introduced to the wonderful gem that is the kettlebell!
Griffin is so easy to work with and he is an incredible motivator! He works with you on your form and technique. He is so enthusiastic and he makes the workouts fun and exciting. I love his music selection, too!
I highly encourage anyone wanting to improve their fitness and health to get out of the gym and get into kettlebell with Griffin! You won't regret it and Griffin is the person to get you there!

"From size 12 to 8"
I was always a big girl. You know. That super tall, big boned, "my, what a pretty face she has," type.
Not super fat but never lean or fit.
Well, all that changed last year when I finally got my butt in gear and dedicated myself to training with Griffin White.
I am a changed woman and while I went from a size 12 to a size 8, from 180 lbs to 159 lbs, I am still a tall curvaceous hour-glass 5'8" woman and each day is a test.
The pictures are the proof. Marginal inches lost in just 2.5 months without starving, just by working out and eating right. You can do it too! If you know Griffin! ;)

"From Body Fat to Body Fit"
In August 2007, I had a body composition analysis and was surprised to see how high my body fat percentage really was. Shortly afterwards, I increased my training regimen with Griffin White by signing up for a kettlebell class. I enjoyed the people in the class and the course so much, I signed up for three classes a week. I have been attending religiously ever since and frankly, the results in my overall health and how I look have been amazing!
In five months, I have reduced my body fat percentage by 12%. Equally surprising is the fact that my lean muscle mass increased by 12%! I can't remember the last time I felt and looked so strong and healthy. Today, my goal is to lose another 10% of body fat and I have no doubt that I can achieve my objective by continuing the work I do with Griffin.
"Standing Taller and Confident"
When I first met Griffin, he had been assigned to me after I had burned through two other trainers in a matter of months. The first trainer did not respect my limits and I ended up with a cracked rib. Yeah, crazy right? The second trainer just flaked out on appointments.
I could barely do a single push-up and a "lunge" was a move that I made to grab a bag of Skittles or a Big Mac, as Griffin started training me. My family and friends playfully mocked the belly that I had acquired. At that time, I was at the heaviest weight that I'd ever been, had terrible posture and very little strength.
With Griffin's guidance, I've begun to stand a little taller – not just physically, but from a point of total confidence in me. I dropped from a size 32" waist to size 30" waist, a size that I've wished to return to, but hadn't seen in many years. My diet is more sensible, and I feel more in control.
The changes since training with kettlebells have been fantastic. The kettlebell's dynamic, total-body movements allow me to focus on strength, endurance and balance, all in one workout. Best of all, I've noticed defined results in all areas, thanks to Griffin's patience, guidance, and expertise with kettlebells.
I find it difficult to imagine a better trainer or friend than Griffin with his winning ways and sparkling personality. He's been my cheerleader for several months, and I'm happy to sing his praises!
"I NEVER liked exercise"
Going to the gym was always boring to me. When I discovered kettlebell training, I found a fun and effective way to get in shape. Griffin's training and kettlebell classes have helped me lose 27 lbs in the last few months. I feel stronger, move better, and most of all, I keep having to buy new clothes. Thanks Griffin!
"From Baby Weight to Bikini Body!"
Griffin's Kettlebell class is a great intense strength training/cardio work out. It's much better than lifting weights at the gym. I definitely feel I work harder and get a better work out. The first time I took Griffin's class I didn't realize how much you work out your legs and at the same time you are working other muscles. Some of Griffin's training techniques reminds me of advance yoga moves because of the added kettlebell weight and opening up your chest. It's a great way to shock the body and see quick results. My goal was to lose my pregnancy weight and get back into bikini body shape as quickly as possible and taking Griffin's Kettle Bell class was the perfect exercise that allowed me to do this. Don't forget your towel you will need it!

"You'll see what an amazing workout it is!"
I have been attending this Los Angeles kettlebell class and my body has totally changed! Since starting class I have now lost over 23lbs. I'm not a very athletic individual so I was a little worried about my first class, but because you can customize how much weight you use I ended up doing pretty well. Kettlebells first interested me because it provides the toning of weight-training and the fat-burning of cardio in one class. I especially like the fact that this unique workout causes your body to continue to burn calories 8 to 24 hours following the class. I don't have a lot of free time and this is a great way for me to maximize the effects of one workout. Griffin White, the instructor, is extremely knowledgeable, professional and hands-on. His energy and enthusiasm is one of my favorite things about the class. Try it and you'll see what an amazing workout it is!
