-“Outside the Box” Soapbox!-
Know what’s really great about my blog? The fact that I get to interact with you guys. I love it! I love the comments and questions I get from y’all! Thank you, and keep ’em coming!
I wanted to use a recent comment from one of my loyal subscribers as a post, because I feel she posed a great question and it evoked a looooooooooong response from me.
Another great thing about my blog is the fact that it’s MINE. I get to speak my mind. I get to share my slant on things with whoever chooses to listen. I don’t expect everyone to agree with me. I expect the majority to not “get” a lot of what I say. This is fine, because I have never been happy being “mainstream.” I have always sought out the “how’s and why’s” while many people were content to sit back and accept things. I will forever question everything, and it is for this reason that I will forever be an individual, through and through. I am brainwash-proof. I am determined, strong, and at times, opinionated. I am not afraid to speak my mind, and it makes me happy to say that because for a LONG time I was afraid to do so.
So, without further ado…
Q: “What do you think of going “outside the box” when it comes to kettlebells? As you know, they’re the next big thing and we’re seeing group instructors putting out DVDs that rankle the “purists” to say the least. I completely agree that a tool is just a tool and the bottom line is to get off your bottom and move, but with kettlebells, some folks go to extremes to be different…I think you know what I mean! Where should the line be drawn? I gotta admit, some of the dances with kettlebells look fun, but I don’t know how to separate genuine safety concerns from the, ya know, us-vs.-them drama.”
