The newly opened KTL gym located at 19th and Spring Garden streets in Philadelphia has a unique progression system.

What an accomplishment just to compete in the Kettlebell Sport World Championships! Her backstory with kettlebells chronicles a decade-long appreciation for them since she was 10. An interesting note in the article mentions how she routinely works out with 24kg (53-pound kettlebells), however, the class she is competing in (amateur) requires 16kg (35-pound kettlebells) to be used. For perspective, the average man is suggested to use a 35-pound kettlebell as an introductory weight for short-duration workouts. We have no doubt Ms. Tyjeski could compete in the professional category when the time is right and if she sees fit!
