Training with Kettlebells is the best kept weight loss and strength training secret around. The Russians have been using Kettlebells for centuries (think about how they dominated the Olympics). Kettlebell training is now being used by US Law Enforcement, US Navy SEALS and other elite forces. With Kettle Belle’s instruction there are no more separate weight training days or lengthy cardio days. Kettlebell training is an all in one workout, suitable for all ages and all fitness levels.

Kettlebell classes are limited to 6 clients at a time. We want to give our clients the personal attention they deserve. This allows you to receive the “private session” atmosphere without the cost. Also, technique is everything with kettlebell exercises and we want to insure your technique is rock solid. Our classes are 60 minutes in duration and vary in intensity; keeping your body guessing and never getting into a routine. You will be hooked with just one session. You owe it to yourself to try Kettle Belle Small Group Sessions or Private one-on-one sessions. Your first class is free with a 10 class pass enrollment.

While we specialize in Kettlebells, we also utilize the following training modalities during our group and private training sessions:

  • Pull-Up Bars
  • Barbell
  • Medicine Balls
  • Body Weight Strength Skills
  • TRX

What is a ‘kettlebell’?

A ‘kettlebell’ or girya (Russ.) is a traditional Russian cast iron weight that looks like a cannonball with a handle. As the 1986 Soviet Weightlifting Yearbook put it, “It is hard to find a sport that has deeper roots in the history of our people than kettlebell lifting.” So popular were kettlebells in Tsarist Russia that any strongman or weightlifter was referred to as a girevik, or ‘a kettlebell man.’ “Not a single sport develops our muscular strength and bodies as well as kettlebell athletics,” wrote Ludvig Chaplinskiy in Russian magazine Hercules in 1913. In the Soviet times weightlifting legends such as Vlasov, Zhabotinskiy, and Alexeyev, started their Olympic careers with kettlebells. Yuri Vlasov who defeated mighty Paul Anderson once interrupted an interview he was giving to a Western journalist and proceeded to press a pair of kettlebells. “A wonderful exercise,” commented the world champion lifter. “. . . It is hard to find an exercise better suited for developing strength and flexibility simultaneously.” The Russian Special Forces personnel owe much of their wiry strength, lethal agility, and never-quitting stamina to kettlebells. Soldier, Be Strong!, the official Soviet armed forces strength training manual pronounced kettlebell drills to be “one of the most effective means of strength development” representing “a new era in the development of human strength-potential.”
