My name is Chris, I’m just about to turn 50 and I have been working with kettlebells for about 5 years. I passed my RKC last year but am not a trainer and don’t pretend to be a fitness expert. However with 5 years experience under my belt I do know how to swing (snatch, TGU, clean, press etc) a kettlebell. The title of my blog comes from my  local gym where I stand out because I’m a short woman (4ft 11ins) swinging some big weight.

This year I have been branching out and working with other forms of strength training. For the past 5 months I have been following the Naked Warrior body weight program, with mixed results, and am about to sign up with an IKFF trainer to work with other types of free weights. This blog is a record of my progress, the highs and the lows, as I get stronger and extend my skills.

    Hi! I’m Sue, and I’m from SlimKicker, a diet/fitness app and website. I found your blog yesterday and it captured my interest!

    I’m contacting you b/c we’re about to release a fitness tracker (similar to FitBit) early next year, and are looking for bloggers who would be interested in receiving 1 for free to review when it is out (negative or positive).

    Would you be interested in doing this? You can email me at: sue (at) slimkicker (com) with ‘Review’ in the email heading if you are.

    In case you don’t know, our website SlimKicker basically turns your diet/fitness goals into a level up game. The tracker will work in conjunction the website, and allow people to track calories burned and number of steps they walk automatically. The more they exercise, the more points they rack up! That’s basically how it will work.

    Anyway, hope to hear back either way…

    – Sue
