All classes at The Kettlebell Fitness Center include instruction/review of proper lifting technique in addition to a self-paced workout. Technique is of paramount importance with kettlebell training, and small group settings allow everyone to learn the basic lifts safely. Practicing proper technique from the beginning yields faster gains in strength and endurance without being sidelined by injury.
Each class begins with mobility work, warming up joints and soft tissue (fascia) and guided movement. Classes include instruction in the basic kettlebell lifts and bodyweight moves and conclude with a warm-down of gentle stretching and/or more mobility drills.
These sessions use a variety equipment including kettlebells, ropes, TRX, sandbags, medicine balls, and bands in addition to bodyweight moves. As with the kettlebell classes, all levels of experience are welcome.
If you are a beginner, coming back after a break, or simply like the personal attention afforded by a one-0n-one session, individual instruction is for you. Sessions are available throughout the week by appointment.
Sandbags are a challenging and unique training tool. As you progress through guided movements, the sand shifts in the bag and your muscles react to stabilize your core. All of your large and smaller muscles will work together for a full-body workout!
Those of you who are familiar with Strongman practice and competitions know that this IS officially called “Strongman”, not Strongwoman but we like to be inclusive… Simply put, this is a blast. We throw, drag, pull (trucks sometimes), pick up, carry and push and pull a variety of objects for fun (and reps)! Come to a practice and learn how to safely and quickly flip a heavy tire, push a weight overhead, tow a truck (and lots more) using simply your own powerful body.
Need help believing how strong you are? This is definitely for you!
