ADULT KETTLEBELL CLASSES

 

Level 1 – Foundations

 

This is where it all begins!  Learn the proper and safe way to use kettlebells.  Kettlebells are a great tool – if used properly under the supervision of a certified coach. In this class we focus on joint mobility, tension techniques, kettlebell, and bodyweight methods to improve performance, increase lean muscle mass, and burn fat.

 

After learning how to mobilize the joints and hinge for the deadlift, we practice proper stance, body position, timing, and breathing involved in the Hardstyle kettlebell swing, the cornerstone of kettlebell training.  In addition to the swing, we work on the Hardstyle plank, Goblet Squats, and introduce the Turkish Get Up.  All movements are combined into circuits that can be adapted to any fitness level.

 

All classes are taught in barefeet or minimalist shoes to ensure a strong, stable, and smarter grounded body!

 

 

Level 2 – Advanced Kettlebell Techniques

 

In Level 2 we build upon the skills developed in Level 1 as you learn and master the kettlebell Swing (and swing variations), Deadlift variations, Clean, Press, Front Squat, Turkish Get Up and the kettlebell Snatch, the core movements of the Strong First School of Strength. Delve into the deeper practice of form as you build endurance and strength through more advanced drills, training circuits, and progressions.  All of our classes include joint mobility and stability, bodyweight movements, active recovery and FUN! All classes are taught in barefeet or minimalist shoes to ensure a strong, stable, and smarter grounded body! 

 

Instructor approval is a prerequisite for this class.

 

 

Performance Training (PT)

 

This is an all-levels class designed to improve joint mobility and stability, improve strength, burn fat, and increase lean muscle mass.  This class combines various training modalities to deliver a safe, fun and effective total body workout. Based on a tactical training model, we train our athletes to move better in their world.  Each work out is challenging but safe and do-able by all.  Any trainer can kick your butt and turn you into a puddle. That’s not what happens here.  We use corrective strategies and specific neurological hacks to reset movement patterns and change the way your brain perceives movement.  By changing the brain, we change our world.  We establish baseline assessments so we can monitor exercise effectiveness and intensity.  More importantly, so we can identify bad movement before it results in injury.  When you leave you will be tired but energized, fatigued but alert, and moving better than when you arrived.   Good for what ails you – PT is the work out you have been looking for!

Skills Workshop

 

Hour long class dedicated to one particular kettlebell or bodyweight skill, including requisite mobility and movement prep, along with progressions and regressions.

 

 

TRX  Kettlebell Fusion

 

This workout combines the best of the TRX, Rip Trainer, kettlebells, and bodyweight exercises!  Using your body weight as resistance, the TRX exercises will focus on high-tension load to improve overall strength, muscle endurance, mobility, flexibility and balance. The Rip Trainer focuses on an asymmetrical load to challenge rotation, core strength and add a metabolic challenge. Kettlebell and bodyweight lifts will challenge your core stability and strength while adding a metabolic element.  Because you have total control of your intensity, you get what you put into this workout!  All fitness levels welcome.

YOUTH PROGRAMS

 

All Sports Performance Training

 

All Sports Performance Training (ASPT) is a combination of neurological drills, physical exercise, and agility training designed to improve athletic performance and prevent injury.  ASPT is a brain-based training system that combines the best of what has worked with the hundreds of athletes that we have trained –  from elite tactical athletes (university transitioning to professional players), to middle school and high school athletes trying to make the team.  We provide an individualized training prescription delivered in a small group, team-first training environment. Our coaches and instructors are constant learners and certified movement specialists. We use a team-training concept that forces our athletes to work together – everyone is a coach and everyone is an athlete.  Our goal is to help our athletes understand how their bodies are wired neurologically and how their bodies work from a biomechanical perspective.  We use cutting edge vision and balance training to improve movement and sports vision, and cognitive drills as active recovery to improve pattern recognition and neurological response times.  Body weight exercise, kettlebells, TRX, and other functional training equipment help to build a strong core, solid joints, and explosive performance. 

 

Class size limited to 10 athletes.

 

 

Holiday Bootcamp   

 

Holiday Bootcamp is a week-long total body strength and conditioning program. that incorporates all of the elements of our ASPT program in a fun, intense week of training. No better way to work off the holiday cookies and clear away the cobwebs as you get ready to return to school and sports.  Athletes will work on kettlebell, bodyweight, TRX and neurological methods to improve strength, speed, and movement patterns.  New exercises and neurological drills are introduced each day that build upon the work done the day before.  Dynamic, intense, but highly doable, athletes will experience performance gains without overtraining. Learning, improving, and having FUN!
