About Me:

  • Name - Nicci
  • Age - 35
  • Occupation - Owner of Kettlebomb Fitness in Mascoutah, IL and Mother of 3
  • Pounds Lost - 93 lbs.

I met Louie in November 2009 when my husband suggested I give kettlebells a try.  I had  a c-section in May and was ready to increase the intensity in my workouts.  I have lifted weights in the past and loved running BUT I have never had a work out like the first one I got from Louie.  I was hooked!  I started with just 3 workouts a week then moved up to 6 days just 2 months later and then by March 2010 was working out 2 times a day. Yes, I love it that much!  I have lost a total of 93 pounds since the c-section and now less than a year later with help from Louie I’m an official RKC too! I never imagined I could be this fit and strong.  Louie has been such a great motivator and leader and the encouragement I got from all the members at this gym are what got me to this level of training.  Thanks Cutting Edge Kettlebells!




Name any workout program; Tai Bo, The Firm, P90x, running, kickboxing, gym membership, etc...I've done it.  Name any diet plan: low carb, low fat, low sugar, low calorie, Zone Diet, Atkins, Slim Fast....I've tried it.  And you know what; I've had success with all of them.  For a limited time, I've had some success.  But the success never lasted, it was never at the level I wanted or expected; honestly I got bored.  As I quickly approached my 40s, I started wondering to myself "what am I truly capable of when it comes to my fitness?"  "What do I want to look like as I embark on my 40s?"  What if...?

My husband suggested that I try out this new gym that opened up right around the corner from where we live.  After a lot of encouragement (pushing) from him, I decided to give it a try.  So, 4 months before I turned 39, I walked into Louie's gym and said "take a look at me, this is the best I can do, this is all I've got.

That was October '09.  When I first started, I have to admit, I was a little nervous and a bit intimidated.  I had worked out before and I thought.  But this work out was very different from anything I had ever done before.  From the very first work out with Louie, I knew this is what I was looking for.

What I like best is that all I have to do is show up.  The days of counting fat grams, calories, pounds, on the scale; they are over.  Louie designs the daily workouts and is always there to provide guidance, support and that extra push when you need it.  He is dedicated to your success and will not let you cheat yourself.  The environment is instructive but encouraging and supportive.  The transformations I've witnessed in my fellow kettlebellers are impressive by any standard.  But the transformation I am most impressed by is my own.  I'm not only stronger physically than I thought I was capable of, but also mentally.  The feeling of accomplishment I feel after completing a workout is very rewarding.  Thanks to Cutting Edge Kettlebells, I am turning 40 in the best shape of my life.

So, Who do you want to become?




Louie has built a gym that feels like home – no big egos, attitudes or intimidation, just a place where people of different fitness levels and ages all feel comfortable training with kettlebells.

Louie’s creative and balanced workouts continually challenge everyone in our gym, regardless of whether they have been training for years or only one week. He has a talent for adapting his workouts to each individuals’ strength and goals, as well as a talent for motivating you to be the best and strongest you can be.

After 5 years of training with Louie, not only have I lost 23 pounds and kept it off, but I have gained strength I never believed I would have. I owe that completely to Louie and his style of training. The workouts are always new and always adaptable to my changing goals. I look forward to coming to the gym, finding out what inventive torture I will be put through today, and seeing my friends in a place that feels like a second home.

If you have a goal, whether it’s to lose weight, gain strength, or find that elusive six-pack, you’ve got to give Louie and kettlebells a try. If you are willing to put in the work and enjoy the pain, Cutting Edge Kettlebells will get you there.
