Russian KettleBell class at Impetus Fitness will work you hard (like Siberia workcamp hard) in a warm, modern environment. Once confined to use by Russian weightlifters, KettleBell’s have now gone mainstream and are being hailed as the perfect answer to the total body workout. Wannabe attendees are required to complete a foundation training course to learn proper form (which helps prevent injury), but once “admitted”, enjoy all the benefits of the ergonomically perfect KettleBell, as well as small class sizes (up to 10) and top notch instruction from fitness expert/owner Jerome Anderson, who not only gives a great workout, but makes all feel welcome in his brand new studio.
