Payton Owens “P”


In 2004 I started training in MMA. I did the “normal” gym thing with lifting weights. I knew there had to be a better way to train for my sport & the “normal” gym wasn’t it. In 2008, I was assigned to a fire station at my fire department, DeKalb County fire. My fire captain at this station was an ex MMA fighter & introduced me to kettlebells. It was a physical fitness game changer. In June 2010, while online reading about some new Kettlebell workouts & learning what a “muscle up” was, I stumbled across the “the main site” I looked over every inch of the site & fell in love. This was the type of training I had been looking for all these years! Not only was it great for MMA but also my chosen career as a DeKalb County firefighter. My specialty is with kettlebells, Olympic lifts and pushing people to their physical limits to make them better.
