The changes I’ve seen in the last two years are beyond what I thought was possible.

rachel testimonial

Two and half years ago I went to my first kettlebell training session with Beth and I really did know right from that first session it was going to be incredible. I was overweight, discouraged, and looking for ANYTHING to get me back to my pre-baby body. My current diet and work out plan was getting me nowhere so I was ready to give it all I had. The changes I’ve seen in the last two years are nothing short of amazing and truly beyond what I thought was possible. Kettlebells are such a fun, diverse way to incorporate strength training and cardio to get maximum results. Beth is so energetic and encouraging that even on my hardest days she was able to motivate me not to give up. Exercise has never been something that I love but I am so addicted to kettlebells and the way it has subtly sculpted my body, I can truly say I look forward to every class. About a year ago I finally found an eating program that worked for me and combined with kettlebells it has produced a lean, fit version of me that I didn’t know was possible. I have lost more than 70lbs., 69inches, and 5 sizes. I am amazed at the increased strength and toned body I have now. I didn’t know I could ever be one of “those” people and I love it! 🙂

I am in really great shape!

Penny testimonial

I started taking Beth’s kettlebell class a year ago, just before I found out I was pregnant with my second baby. I have always been a runner and ran through my first pregnancy, but was unable to keep running through my second. Kettlebells were great for me during that time because I was able to stay in good cardio shape while strengthening my body in a way that was low impact. Since my baby was born I have been excited to see how kettlebells have helped me get back into shape and lose weight so quickly. watch For the first time in my life, I feel like I am in really great shape overall because kettlebells are a regular part of my fitness routine!

“After the birth of my fourth child in less than five years I decided that since the baby factory was closed it was time to try to get the body I had always wanted. After procrastinating and wondering if there was really anyone who could help my post baby bod I finally broke down and decided to just try out Beth’s kettlebell class. She was so good about making sure she didn’t throw too much at me all at once and really took the time to make sure my horrible knees and shoulders didn’t get injured. It’s the most intense, fun and rewarding workout I’ve ever had and I’m completely hooked and in love with kettlebells! I dropped 20 pounds in 3 months! And a year and a half later, I’m 36 lbs lighter, 21 inches smaller, and down 4 dress sizes! I’m back into my “skinny” clothes and they are fitting better than before, and I feel great!!! Hard work really does pay off! I look forward to the class each week because I can see the great results of such a hard workout (and my husband loves the results too!). Beth, you’re amazing!”

My conditioning and strength has improved immensely!

pam testimonial

Beth possesses all the qualities that make a great personal trainer – dedication, enthusiasm, and patience. Beth always got the best out of me even when I felt too exhausted to finish. She was able to bring out new confidence in myself especially since I had never worked out with kettlebells previously. My conditioning and strength has improved immensely. Beth is also very knowledgeable with fitness, health, and nutrition. Her cheerful personality and smile is contagious!

Lean, toned, and one wicked hot body to show!

michele testimonial

*Note from Beth: When Michele first came to me, she asked for two things: to improve her strength and muscle tone and to not make her do anything that looked stupid. My first thought was, “Yay! A woman who’s not afraid of lifting!”. My second thought was, “What is she going to think about kettlebells?”

For anyone who has not tried kettlebells, they are not the most natural feeling exercises at first, but they are so much fun once you get it down and awesome for improving strength and tone. So I held off on using them with her until we had worked together for a while and I felt I had gained her trust. Then I introduced her to kettlebells and what do you know… she was a natural! Michele quickly came to love working with the bells and she is one of my faithful followers who encouraged me to start my own business.

It has been a blessing to have her as a client and now here she is: lean, toned, and one wicked hot body to show for all her hard work!

You HAVE to call Beth Burns first!

If you have ANY kind of pain (especially from an overuse injury or a sports related injury) you HAVE to call Beth Burns first!! She is amazing and through some very simple exercises she has helped me to get rid of shoulder pain AND just recently also helped me with my heel pain (which may or may not be plantar fasciitis and a heel spur!) so that I could continue training for my first triathlon. After my triathlon, I hope to get to try out her kettlebell classes as well!

I’ve never experienced better workouts than those I’ve done with Beth!

Christine testimonial

I’m a runner, yoga practitioner/teacher, hiker, skier – you name it, I probably enjoy doing it! There is one exception, though: strength training. In the past my strength training consisted of the usual free-weight routines, with occasional sessions on cable machines. I always found these workouts boring, and struggled with finding the motivation to do them. I even tried a traditional personal trainer, and while he showed me some new exercises, ultimately it was the same old thing. Not only was I bored, but I didn’t see results translating into my other activities.

My whole concept of strength-training changed when I met Beth Burns and had my first kettlebell session with her. All I can say is “Wow!” First, I’ve never been bored, and I mean that in all aspects: not only is it fun, but Beth mixes things up so much that there is never time for my muscles to get too used to any single exercise. Second, kettlebell workouts consist of activities that directly translate to daily life: so whether I’m running a rocky trail, working on handstands, helping a friend move a ridiculously heavy and oddly-balanced piece of furniture or picking up my overweight cat, Beth’s kettlebell training gives me the overall strength and stability I need to perform at my best.

I will say that proper use of kettlebells definitely requires professional guidance – there’s nothing intuitive about it! That said, Beth ensures that her clients are fully grounded in the fundamentals and gradually increases the intensity and complexity of the sessions. Beth has a wealth of knowledge, and that definitely shows during her sessions. Her sessions are unintimidating and fun (we laugh a lot), but don’t be fooled: I’ve never experienced better workouts than those I’ve done with Beth!

I began seeing improvement within a week!

I was having a chronic problem with an over-use injury to my right wrist that just would not heal. Beth taught me a series of Z-health exercises for my wrist, hand, fingers, elbow and arms. The exercises took less than 10 minutes once a day to complete. I began seeing improvement within a week, and the problem, which had lasted many months, resolved completely within about 8 weeks.

I also used these same exercises when I was recovering from trigger finger surgery on my right hand. I started doing them when the physical therapist told me I had recovered as much flexibility as I was going to get, and I wasn’t satisfied. By using the Z-health exercises I was able to make additional significant gains in finger flexibility and strength. If I lived closer to Beth, I would be a very regular customer!
