October Kettlebell Strength and Fitness Challenge

Test your strength, fitness with kettlebells!

On Saturday, October 25 at 10:00am, put your strength and endurance to the test using your kettlebell skills. Choose to compete with others or simply establish your own personal best in the Super Seven kettlebell moves: deadlift, squat, overhead press, TGU, snatch (or high pull), swing and a farmer carry.

This event will be open to the public, so invite your friends and family to show them exactly what it is that you do with those “cannonballs with a handle”.

The events are as follows. You’re encouraged to participate in each one, but you may opt out of any if you choose.

1) Max Deadlift. You will have three attempts to perform one repetition of the deadlift with your choice of kettlebells or barbell. Your heaviest successful completion of the lift will be counted. Once a weight is attempted, you may not go back and attempt a lighter weight.

2) Max Military Press. You will have three attempts to perform one repetition of a Military Press. Your heaviest successful completion of the lift will be counted. Once a weight is attempted, you may not go back and attempt a lighter weight.

3) Max Goblet Squat. You will have three attempts to perform one repetition of a Goblet Squat. Your heaviest successful completion of the lift will be counted. Once a weight is attempted, you may not go back and attempt a lighter weight.

4) Max Snatch or High Pull. You will have your choice of bell to perform as many snatches or high pulls as possible for 3 minutes. You may switch hands once. You may set the bell down to rest without penalty.

5) Max Swing. You will have your choice of bell to perform as many two handed swings as possible for 3 minutes. You may set the bell down to rest without penalty.

6) Max Turkish Get Up. You will have three attempts to perform one Turkish Get Up on the side of your choice. Your heaviest successful completion of the move will be counted. Once a weight is attempted, you may not go back and attempt a lighter weight.

7) Farmer Carry. You will have three attempts to perform a farmer carry for a TBD distance. You may use either a pair of kettlebells or farmer handles. Your fastest time and the weight of the bell will be counted.

Consider this a chance to establish your current “bests” and strive to kick them up a notch or two in when we hold another event next spring.

Registration Deadline: October 14.  To register or for more information,  email nhallock@gmail.com.

Mothers’ Day Special!

Do you know a mom (to a human or pet), or are you a mom, or do you have a mom?  Would you or any of those women like to get strong(er) and have fun doing it?  If so, please pass this on to them!!

This year’s Mothers’ Day Special begins next Monday, May 12!

Participants will learn how to perform three basic kettlebell moves with strength and grace: the Swing, Get Up and Goblet Squat, along with additional core work.

In addition, the class will enjoy plenty of metabolic burn or “cardio” with ZERO impact on joints, except for making them stronger and more stable.

Classes will be held twice a week on Mondays and Wednesdays, from 5:45 – 6:45pm for four weeks, beginning Monday, May 12.

Cost: $80/8 classes.  Class size will be limited to ensure adequate personal instruction.

Current members refer a woman/mom/sister/friend and receive 10% off their next class card purchase.

I’m excited about this!  Please let me know if you have any questions.
