But, while I was getting tattooed, the subject of KB training came up (of course!), and I realized, as I was talking about it, how eccentric the kettlebell is! It's hardcore.......it doesn't appeal to everyone. I think it takes a certain kind of person to look at it and "get it" (the KB), much less recognize that just because not everyone is doing it (in fact that's a bonus!) doesn't mean it's not a valid form of training. It's bad ass, and it kicks ass!
I've always considered myself an artistic, funky, creative type of person ( OK, and a little extreme!) that loves being "different" and I'll admit a little bit of an attention seeker! (I am a Leo after all!) I don't really give a care what anyone else thinks of me, or what I do, I live my life for myself. The fact that tattoos are permanent makes them more exciting to me, and another way of expressing my ability to commit to something I believe in...... in fact my very first tattoo was rosebuds and a heart (so "80's") with Mark's name, after knowing him only about 6 weeks (we were already engaged at that point!).
So, if anyone has ever had any doubts about my belief that the kettlebell has truly been a miracle in my life, this tattoo is a symbol of my appreciation. And it also represents the excitement and commitment to teaching, sharing, and leading by example, how it can be for others interested in changing their bodies, their health, and possibly their lives.
I'm not posting this for anyones approval or negative opinion, although if you have one (a negative opnion) I hope you have the balls to comment directly to me, via this venue, or shut the hell up!
Life is great. Live it.
