The Breakthrough Secrets Podcast

I haven't always been a strong guy. I haven’t always been a motivational, outgoing, talk in front of a lot of people kind of guy. My name is Chris, I’m the founder of KettlebellWorks and co-host of The Breakthrough Secrets Podcast with my brother in strength Mike Kurkowski.My personal achievements are diverse, ranging from 2x Ironman Triathlon finisher to hitting a triple bodyweight deadlift. All that to say; I’ve been at the extreme side of endurance training and the extreme side of strength training.Somewhere in the middle is an incredibly fulfilling lifestyle of strength, health, and happiness centered around simple and sustainable training methods that every human being can use to become the absolute strongest version of themselves. Everyone has their own story. Everyone has their own reason for being here. We all want to live the best life we possibly can.Join us as we share our secrets of 26 years of combined experience with helping men and women become the strongest version of themselves in an effort to help motivate and inspire you to be able to experience what it feels like to live life at your full potential.
