Top qualities: Expert, Good Value, High Integrity

Mandla takes the time to get to know each of his clients and their particular needs in terms of training and conditioning. He has an outstanding working knowledge of the body and can pinpoint trouble spots and recommend moves to improve. Personally, Mandla's guidance and expertise has helped me to move to the next level in my kettlebell training. He has taken the mystique out of the training and given me not only the support but the tools I need to work with. Additionally Mandla follows up with regular emails on current topics in kettlebell training as well as other health and wellness news items. I have and will continue to recommend Mandla's services at Boston Kettlebell.

Boston Kettlebell Basics Plus Workshop
Transformations Movement Company, Dorchester MA
August 18, 2007
Due to the popularity of the previous kettlebell workshops at Transformations, we decided to hold it yet again and add more! Joint Mobility drills and Kettlebell Preparatory Lifts were used to develop and refine technique in the Swing, Clean, Jerk and Snatch. We provided guidelines for skill development in high repetition based lifting. We also worked on perfecting form, maintaining good posture and creating ease in lifting through correct breathing and the usage of appropriate levels of tension. This workshop was 3.5 hours.


Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, Expert

I am a personal trainer as well as a kettlebell enthusiast. Mandla helped me hone my KB skills and iron out small inconsistencies in my own training. I attended one of his flexibility/mobility seminars, and after it, I applied what I learned in my own training and in training my own clients with much success. As a peer, Mandla has integrity, the knowledge, and a commitment to kettlebell training. If interested in KB training one should definitely take advantage of what he has to offer.

Boston Kettlebell Basics Workshop
Transformations Movement Company, Dorchester MA
June 23 and July 27, 2007
These workshops were introductions to Kettlebell & Joint Mobility Training. We covered a variety of joint mobility drills and preparatory lifts as a lead up to perfecting form in the 'Swing'. We touched on other lifts such as the 'Clean' and 'Jerk' to begin to illustrate the nature of the kettlebell as a work capacity tool.
