Bob Garon (aka “Synergy Bob“) is a Kettlebell coach, recreational climber, OCR (obstacle course race) athlete, and ultra distance cyclist.

I believe the greatest benefit we get from our body is to train it as one unit, rather than a bunch of separate parts, because that is how we use it in life.  Life is constantly changing and so in my training style my focus is having no set cookie-cutter style and adapt every workout to not just my students, but each session depending on what their body is telling us that day. This keeps us constantly changing, never reaching a plateau, and always moving toward a Strong Body, Strong Mind.
