Dear Reader, if you have purchased the first edition of Body Sculpting with Kettlebells, there are two editor's misprints in the exercise description section. Please contact me on this site for a link to the correct photo and text for those two exercises. Please note that the current, third edition does not contain these errors. Thank you!
Lorna Kleidman, 3 -time World Kettlebell Sport Champion, Master of Sport and Two-Time International Master of Sport, personal trainer and author is bringing the age-old art of kettlebell workouts to the public.
Her passion for and years of experience in dance, boxing and general fitness ultimately led her to the versatility of the kettlebell. Today, Lorna is at the forefront of the sport of international kettlebell lifting as well as kettlebell use for fitness.
Although Lorna is an accomplished competitive athlete and trainer, she grew up suffering from severe exercise-induced asthma, her lung capacity so weak she was unable to participate in any recreational activities.
As a teenager, Lorna studied dance, which became her passion for years. In 1990 she became licensed in massage therapy and later ART (Active Release Technique), upon which she built a thriving private practice in Westchester County with clients that included professional athletes as well as teenagers and elderly clients.
In her late 20's, Lorna discovered intense aerobic training, which proved extremely beneficial for her breathing and stamina, but it wasn't until she as introduced to the kettlebell that she knew she had found the perfect fitness tool. She was immediately hooked as kettlebell training gave her the most defined, powerful physique she'd ever experienced in all her years of dance and fitness classes. She was soon a certified instructor in competitive kettlebell lifting and in 2007 was the first American to earn the coveted title of International Master of Sport.
Lorna immediately realized the unparalleled benefits of kettlebell workouts for everyone; whether a client is a new mother, golfer, runner or yoga enthusiast, Lorna guarantees a better level of fitness that is not just seen and felt, but that relates to activities of daily living and performance. Today, Lorna offers private sessions and small group classes in Manhattan.
