>When I met Will Williams about a year ago, I was training for my RKC. I had begun kettlebell training only a short while before. My first encounter with Will was at an entry level kettlebell class, he was assisting and providing guidance. I remember we were performing a double bell C&P drill and Will asked how long I had been training. My response was only 2 months. The next time I saw Will, he was my team leader at the RKC, 5 months later. The intimidation of being tested and challenged by a senior level instructor was enough to push me beyond limits I didn’t even know I had! Will saw a potential in me and was gracious enough to grant me the license to drive! Little did I know this experience would change my life forever.
I didn’t realize that that fortunate coincidence would lead me to the goals that I have achieved now. I knew there was a reason he was an expert in the field. I decided to take advantage of my good fortune and began twice a week training with him.
After an evaluation of my abilities and an FMS screening, he immediately put together a master-minded program to improve my body composition and strength. Within 2 months, I lost an overall 8 inches and a dress size! Things have only gotten better from there. Since that time, we’ve begun a stair-running regimen at the Art Museum that would put any athlete to shame! We’ve run through multiple pressing and squatting routines, improved my get-up, single-leg deadlift and FMS scores. The application of rolling patterns and testing for smart training for injury prevention provides consistent feedback for improvement. There’s perpetual pull-up training. The implementation of PR Zones provides concrete evidence of forward progress. With Will, you don’t just have a workout session, it’s more like an exercise in humility and a reflection of your commitment to the cause.
In my quest for improving my physical well-being (that which carries the implication of the improvement of your mental well-being), I’ve evolved from step-aerobics and bicep pumps to kettlebells, running and a commitment to healthy eating. If anyone would have asked me 5 years ago if I would participate in a sprint triathlon, I would have thought I would see pigs fly first! The improvements that I have seen in myself as a result of Will’s instruction has given me the motivation and the confidence to do the things I once thought impossible!!
If you don’t already have the fortune of training with Will…..do yourself the favor. Find your limits and exceed them!!!
