Chad Sexton

Chad is the Co-Owner, CFO and kettlebell trainer at Iron and Grace.  He personally found the kettlebell to be the most effective way to build strength, flexibility and speed and it was much more fun than traditional weight lifting.  To that end, he was inspired to take the grueling, gold standard  RKC certification in 2009.  He is trained to work with the TRX, Rip Trainer and and rope undulation.  Being a lifetime athlete, teacher and a father gives Chad unique skills to motivate his students for an effective workout. His classes may include pieces of random historical information due to his voracious appetite for non-fiction. Chad enjoys an active lifestyle full of travel,  mountain biking and time with his family.
