I joined on the day of opening in January 2017, I was very anxious so only used a few pieces of equipment in the gym with the plan of taking it easy and building myself up slowly. In early March Carl one of the class instructors came over chatting to me and started talking about a new class kettlercise, after telling my story Carl encouraged me to come to class and he would help me with modified moves. I go to nearly all Carl's classes including Insanity, HIIT and Abs Blast.
I started in Kettlercise with the baby bell, 2kg. I was a bit embarrased to start with, by the end of 2017 I was using a 10kg and still do today, along with doubling up for Kettlercise Extreme Classes. During this time Carl also asked me to join in the Insanity Class, I was convinced it wasnt for me but Carl assured me I could do it and he showed me all the modified moves at the start of each section. By the end of 2017 I have next to no back pain and have never felt so great and now have my life back and thoroughly enjoy going to Anytime Fitness.
