If you’re thinking about joining Shawn’s gym, be prepared to open your checkbook. According to the website, new members get a 30-day introductory charge of $105 which then becomes $215 monthly.

One of the great things about kettlebells is that with so many exercises it’s easy to create your own workouts.
