All three coaches train with kettlebells on a regular basis and have coached countless people through kettlebell workouts. We have a passion to continue to learn, improve, and try new workouts keeping things fresh and fun.
During this hands on workshop we will break down the “big 6” kettlebell movements.
These movements may seem overwhelming, but with proper instruction and cues they become much easier. You will have experts coaching you into good form so you can do safe and effective workouts at home. You will leave with a kettlebell specific RAMP (our version of a warm-up) and kettlebell workouts you can do at home. Don’t miss out on your chance to learn from some of the best. Space is limited so don’t wait to reserve your space.
