The great Michael Jordan was once quoted as saying…

‘I’ve always believed that if you put in the work, the results will come.’

I honestly couldn’t be more pleased for my athletes that competed at the weekend in Glasgow at the GSU Scottish Kettlebell Championships. The above quote sums up not just Russ, Anna and Chez, but the whole team. They are the hardest working group of people I know. Each week they turn up and lift there hearts out in training, every competition they enter they hit the planned reps.

You know why?

Apart from the perfect programming provided by moi, it’s the dedication they show. They put the time in under the bells.  They persevere. They listen. Most importantly they apply everything they learn to yield the results that they get.

‘The results you achieve will be in direct proportion to the effort you apply.’
Denis Waitley
