Podcast: Coach Karen Smith Talks Kettlebells & The Most Important Body Part That We Neglect To Train

Who’s your fitness guru? Do you have one?

I have several, studying others helps me improve my own training and the training experience of my clients… never stop learning! Life tip #1.

I won’t share them all today, but I will share one…

Coach Karen Smith

Coach Karen is a badass… and I’m not exaggerating.

Her strength is incredible and her passion for health and fitness is hard to match (though I think I’m up there, ha).

When I decided to bring the podcast back, I knew immediately I wanted to reach out to Karen.

After following her Instagram forever, this was a woman I knew could teach me a thing or two about kettlebells, training and more.

Luckily, she said yes!

There are so many golden nuggets in this podcast. Even if you’re not into kettlebell training, you’ll still benefit.
